Fort Wayne’s Addison Agen is through to the Top 8 performers on “The Voice.”

The 16-year-old junior at Concordia Lutheran High School was the second artist announced as saved by viewer overnight voting during “The Voice” results show Tuesday night.

Addison presented a gripping, ballad-style version of pop star Britney Spears’ song “Lucky” during “The Voice” performance show Monday night.

Though she sang last among the Top 10 finalists, but she seemed as calm as if performing for friends at home.

The performance earned a No. 5 ranking as of Tuesday morning on the iTunes Top 200 Songs chart, which earned her bonus votes heading into this evening’s live results show.

“The Voice” rules say that if, at the end of a show’s overnight voting period, an artist’s song from that Monday night’s live show is in the Top 10 of the iTunes Top 200 Songs chart, the artist’s iTunes votes (number of downloads) will be multiplied by five as an iTunes Bonus.

Addison was one of four “The Voice” Top 10 finalists whose performances on Monday’s night’s live show made the Top 10 songs on the iTunes Top 200 Songs chart. The others included Brooke Simpson’s performance of “Amazing Grace” at No. 2, Chloe Kohanski’s rendition of “Call Me,” by Blondie, at No. 4, and Keisha Renee’s singing of “All By Myself,” by Celine Dion, at No. 10.

On the results show, seven finalists were declared safe by viewer overnight voting, and three had to compete for the Instant Save that would advance one of them to next week’s show.

Davon Fleming earned the Instant Save from viewers, and Ashland Craft and ShiAnn Jones will go home.

Next week, the Top 8 face a new challenge — singing together in mash-up duets during the live performance show at 8 p.m. Monday on NBC, which airs locally on Channel 21.2.

“The Voice” producers haven’t released details yet, but typically in a mash-up duet each performer sings a different song, and the two songs are blended together in one performance.

By the end of the night, the contestants will be cut to a Final Four.

Three artists will be named safe by overnight viewer voting. The two contestants with the lowest viewer overnight vote totals then will be eliminated immediately.

The three remaining artists will have to compete for the Instant Save that will put one of them in the finals.

The finals live performance show will take place at 8 p.m. Dec. 18. The winner will be announced during the season finale Dec. 19.

There are ways to continue voting for Addison or other contestants outside of the overnight voting window following Monday night performance shows. For example, any iTunes song purchases made outside the overnight voting window but inside the cumulative voting window of 8 p.m. Nov. 20 through 7 a.m. Dec. 19 also will count toward the artist’s cumulative vote total, if he or she gets to the season finale Dec. 19.
