Tuesday night was a good one for Addison Agen on “The Voice.”

Not only did the Fort Wayne native rack up enough viewer votes to advance to the show’s Top 10 finalists. She and fellow Team Adam member Adam Cunningham also performed a rockin’ version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way” with their celebrity coach, Adam Levine of the pop-music group Maroon 5.

It all took place during “The Voice” results show broadcast live at 8 p.m. on NBC, seen locally on Channel 21.2.

In a night of outstanding performances Monday night on “The Voice” performance show, the 11 finalists all drew praise from celebrity coaches Levine, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton. Chloe Kohanski of Team Blake, who sang “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” and Addison, who sang Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You,” ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on the iTunes music chart as of Tuesday night.

Addison was one of the few contestants who received a standing ovation from all four coaches, but her soulful singing of folk music legend Mitchell’s song left the crowd quiet and steeped in emotion.

For the first time on “The Voice,” viewers had suggested the song each contestant sang on Monday’s show. The suggestions came via the “Suggest a Song” button on “The Voice” smartphone application.

While Levine and Hudson praised Addison’s performance – Hudson even urged viewers to vote for Addison – the decision on whether Addison stayed in the competition hinged on votes cast by viewers during the overnight voting period.

Her fans came through for her last week, the first week of live shows and viewer voting, and they did it again Tuesday.

The competition only will get tougher from here.

After tonight’s show, only the 10 best contestants will be left. And unlike this week and last week, when the two contestants with the lowest viewer vote totals battled it out for an Instant Save to stay on the show, next week the bottom three contestants will compete for the Instant Save and two will go home, it said on “The Voice” show’s media website.

The eliminations will culminate with one contestant being named winner during the Dec. 19 season finale.
