Minneapolis singer Kat Perkins gets audience 'save' to move on in 'The Voice'


It took some last-minute Twitter action from her fans, but Minneapolis singer Kat Perkins made it to the next round on NBC's "The Voice" Tuesday night.

Perkins sang Stevie Nicks' "Landslide" on Monday's show, but wound up as one of the bottom three vote-getters in the competition on the Tuesday show. She needed to be the winner of Tuesday night's "instant save" to move on to next week's round of eight.

Perkins and the two others in the bottom -- Bria Kelly and Tess Boyer -- each sang one more time before viewers voted for their favorite via Twitter. Perkins sang Grace Potter and the Nocturnals' "Paris (Ooh La La)," and the celebrity coaches were impressed.

Blake Shelton said, "If that doesn't buy you next week, I don't know what the hell will."

Adam Levine, who is Perkins' coach, said she deserved to go all the way, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Perkins won the instant save, while Kelly and Boyer were eliminated. Perkins and the other seven singers will perform again next week.

Perkins performed "Paris (Ooh La La)" on Tuesday night's show as her chance to be "saved" by fans.

Monday night she performed "Landslide."

Perkins grew up on a farm in North Dakota where she was part of a country western review show and traveled the country as a yodeling cowgirl. In 2003, she made the switch to rock music, and at one time her band opened for Bon Jovi. She ended up leaving the music business for awhile and now works as a nanny for an Edina family. She currently lives in Minneapolis.

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 7 p.m. on NBC.
