Former Berklee student Lana Scott saved from elimination on ‘The Voice’

After Lana Scott lost the battle round, Blake Shelton used his only save on the singer.

With the blind auditions behind us, contestants on season 21 of “The Voice” hit the stage for the battle rounds this week. This year, there are a few artists with New England connections, and one of them had a nail-biting save on Tuesday night.

Virginia native and former Berklee College of Music student Lana Scott, 28, won a spot on Blake Shelton’s team during the blind auditions. Scott left Berklee after landing a cruise ship singing gig, and sailed the world for a few years before heading to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music.

“I don’t want you to ever have to sing on a cruise ship ever again,” Shelton said during a coaching session.


Scott battled it out with fellow Team Blake artist Hailey Green. Coached by Shelton and Dierks Bentley, the two prepared an energetic rendition of “Girl” by country-pop queen Maren Morris. 

Though Shelton chose Green as the winner, he used his one “save” to bring Scott back. 

“The only decision I had to make was who I thought could handle the thirty seconds of a broken heart better, so I was never going to let you go,” Shelton said.

On Monday, Berklee senior KJ Jennings was unfortunately sent home after her battle round. A member of Team Legend, she faced off against Samuel Harness. Though John Legend praised Jennings for her powerful voice and flexible runs, he ended up choosing Harness. 

Guest coached by Camila Cabello, Jennings and Harness prepared a rock-cover of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” by Sean Mendes and Cabello.
