The season-three winner sings her brand new single on the singing show that catapulted her to the mainstream.
Cassadee Pope returned to "The Voice" stage on Tuesday, June 4 to perform her first ever single "Wasting All These Tears", less than six months after she won the TV singing competition's third season. The 23-year-old singer's appearance on the show becomes her first ever live performance of her debut single which will be featured in her forthcoming solo album due to arrive in October.
Wearing a sleeveless, sequined mini-dress, the Blake Shelton-mentored finalist looked every inch a star as she sang her mid-tempo pop-country ballad, showcasing her newly-acquired Nashville vibe that Shelton brought out of her during the competition. Channeling her pop-rock roots into the emotional song, the up-and-coming singing superstar gave a killer performance of the post-heartache tune.
The June 4 results show also featured performances from the contestants, like the "Open Your Heart" duet between Team Shakira's Sasha Allen and Team Usher's Michelle Chamuel and the "Eternal Flame" rendition of Team Blake's Danielle Bradbery with Amber Carrington from Adam Levine's group. Additionally, Team Blake's The Swon Brothers and Holly Tucker performed "Leave the Pieces" before they were announced as the week's bottom two.
As the results show drew to a close, The Swon Brothers were deemed safe and will live to fight another week with the other four finalists remaining in the competition, hoping to be season four's champion. Tucker ended up being sent home that night, crying her eyes out as she was eliminated from the hit TV show.
