Was Kathrina Feigh surprised to be rescued from elimination by a steal this week on The Voice?

The photo of her covering her mouth while breaking down in tears is all you need to see to answer that question.

She was reacting to Blake Shelton decision to steal her for his team.

Moments earlier, Chris Weaver had been declared the winner of their Team Jennifer Hudson battle round match, putting Kathrina’s spot on the show in jeopardy.

“That’s literally everywhere now,” Kathrina said of the crying photo. “I’m honestly still shocked.

“I’m so proud of Chris, and we worked so hard to really put that (performance of Ariana Grande’s ‘Dangerous Woman’) together, which was a really difficult challenge for both of us,” she added. “But at that moment, I was very accepting and, you know, I was praying and that if this is what God really had meant for me, I trust in Him. And I just really thought I was going home.”

Blake Shelton to the rescue, even if his team wouldn’t seem the most natural landing spot for a 24-year-old R&B / soul singer from the Philippines.

That said, Kathrina noted that Blake also tried to recruit her for his team after her blind audition performance of “Big White Room” by Jessie J.

“I was very happy that he still believed in me at that moment and he really saw something in me that he didn’t want to send me home and he wanted to put me in his team,” Kathrina told Voice Views.

Whitney Fenimore also nabbed a steal during Monday’s episode. It came after she and Adam Pearce turned in a rousing, show-ending performance of the Stevie Nicks-Tom Petty duet “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.”

Adam Levine awarded the win to Adam Pearce, putting Whitney at risk of elimination. But she said she spied Blake and Miley Cyrus counting down as Adam launched into his farewell comments to her.

“So in that moment I knew and I got so excited,” Whitney, a 28-year-old singer-songwriter said. “And then when they did
it, I was like so overwhelmed with emotion.”

But hold on, that left her with a decision to make: which team to join. Double steals aren’t common on The Voice, and Whitney had to choose between the all-female Team Miley or her fellow-Oklahoman’s Team blake.

“I decided on Miley because she turned for me in the blind (auditions). And the words that she told me in the blind, it really seemed like she hit the nail on the head with who I was as an artist. She really called me out for what I was.

“She was like, ‘I feel like you’ve got a bit of country, but you’re not country. You’ve got some rock in you.’ And I really wanted to see where we could go. I thought she would really pull me out of my comfort zone and make me do things that I wasn’t always going to be comfortable doing.”

“But I thought that that would be good for me; the whole competition is about growing as an artist.”

Next up for Whitney and Kathrina: The knockouts, which begin Oct. 30.
