Aaron Gibson and Sa’Rayah weren’t really familiar with the song they were asked to sing in the battle round by coach Miley Cyrus.
It didn’t matter. By the end of their performance of “I’ll Take Care of You,” Aaron was headed to the knockout round, still as a member of Team Miley. And two coaches — Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton — wanted to steal Sa’Rayah. She opted to join Team Alicia.
By noon Tuesday, their version of “I’ll Take Care of You” was the most popular song from Monday’s show on iTunes. It was sitting at number 75 on the overall singles chart and entrenched at number one on the blues chart.
One other song from Monday’s show cracked the iTunes Top 200 — “House of the Rising Sun” by Kylie Rothfield and Josh Halverson. Both of them also remained in the competition. Kylie advanced on Team Alicia; Josh was stolen by Miley.
They were close behind Aaron and Sa’Rayah at number 78 on the overall singles chart.
Here’s a look at where all the songs from Monday’s show were ranked on genre charts as of noon Tuesday. Noon is when voting typically ends following a live show on The Voice. Three songs failed to crack the Top 200 on genre charts. Predictably, they were the duets that were montaged, meaning we didn’t get to see the performances.
