Minnesota singer Holly Henry moves ahead on 'The Voice'


Minneapolis singer Holly Henry has advanced to the knockout round in the NBC singing competition "The Voice," the Pioneer Press reports.

Henry, 19, dueled against fellow "Voice" competitor Cilla Chan Tuesday night in a battle round performance of the 1997 Natalie Imbruglia hit, "Torn."

Before they performed the song, both Henry and Chan took tips from "Voice" coach Blake Shelton and legendary pop singer Cher.

After the duo performed head-to-head, Shelton picked Henry to advance.

The Hopkins High School graduate floored all four "Voice" coaches nearly a month ago with her moving rendition of Coldplay's "The Scientist" during the blind audition round.

The other Minnesota native on "The Voice" -- St. Paul's Ashley DuBose -- advanced to the knockout round last week.
