Adam Levine warned his team that nobody was safe, and then he proved it.
Adam eliminated Pip, the Eagle Scout from Georgia, at the end of last night’s episode of The Voice. This twist denied Pip’s supporters the chance to vote to save him.
I gotta say, I’m sorry to see Pip go. I was an instant fan after his rendition of “House of the Rising Sun” during the blind auditions. And after speaking with the young man on the phone a couple of months ago, I was even more impressed by the 19-year-old’s maturity and humility. No surprise for an Eagle Scout, I guess.
So Pip is off The Voice, but I’ve got a feeling his journey is just beginning. He’s got the right look, strong singing skills, and — just as important — a great attitude.
Just check out this tweet from last night:
Thank you to everyone for your outpour of love and affection! this has been a tremendous opportunity and I'm so excited for what's to come!!—

Gracious in defeat. A Scout is Cheerful, after all.
