It was a golden night for Team Niall on “The Voice.”
Coach Niall Horan was spared the agony of having to watch his contestants land on the chopping block during the first results show of the season Tuesday night. The top 12 contestants learned if their Monday performances were enough to secure them a spot in the top 9 semifinals.
Luckily for Horan, all three of his singers were swiftly voted through to the next round: soul-rocker Nini Iris, alt-rock powerhouse Huntley and soul-pop maven Mara Justine.
“Your team is unscathed. You’re moving on,” host Carson Daly said later in the show, to which Horan replied, “Thank you to America for voting.”
Justine, who was stolen by Horan from Team Legend, shared what Horan’s mentorship has meant to her.
“Niall has helped me so much with so many different things,” Justine said. “Just his presence alone is so calming. I feel like him really believing in me has really helped with my confidence onstage.”
Here’s what else went down on Tuesday’s episode.
