North Carolina Artists Shine in The Voice Semi-Finals

Josh Sanders from Kannapolis, N.C., and Tae Lewis from Goldsboro, N.C., are set to perform on the semi-finals of The Voice on May 13-14, 2024, airing on NBC and WRAL. The two artists are among the nine contestants still in the running, with the top five to be revealed on Tuesday night.

Sanders, a 35-year-old country artist, is one of the two remaining singers on coach Reba McEntire's team. He auditioned with Nate Smith's "Whiskey on You" and chose to join McEntire's team, citing her as the "queen of country." Throughout the competition, Sanders has delivered standout performances of songs like Thomas Rhett's "Angels (Don't Always Have Wings)," The Doobie Brothers' "Black Water," and Corey Kent's "Wild as Her."

When asked about his upcoming semi-final performance, Sanders told NBC News, "It's gonna be an upbeat, go after it, go get it kind of song." His fellow North Carolina native, Tae Lewis, is part of Team Dan Shay and expressed his excitement after being picked as a semi-finalist, saying, "I almost like jumped out of my own body, that's how excited I was."

The Voice Season 25 features award-winning country-pop artists Dan Shay joining returning coaches Reba McEntire, John Legend, and Chance the Rapper. McEntire replaced Blake Shelton as a coach last season and has been busy with various projects, including a surprise appearance at the Stagecoach Festival, releasing a new single, and announcing a new sitcom. She will also host the 59th annual Academy of Country Music Awards later this month.

The other remaining singer on McEntire's team is Asher HaVon, a 31-year-old artist from Selma, Alabama. HaVon auditioned with a gospel-infused rendition of Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" and received high praise from Chance the Rapper, who told him, "I instantly turned around 'cause I could tell you're trying to win this competition, and you should." HaVon has showcased his vocal prowess with performances of "Titanium," Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart," and Tina Turner's "We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)."

The Voice Season 25 finale is set to air on May 20 and 21, with McEntire potentially winning her first victory as a coach. Tune in to catch Josh Sanders and Tae Lewis' performances on The Voice, airing Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on NBC and WRAL.
