Minnesota's Blind Joe knocked off NBC's 'The Voice'



Blind Joe gave his final performance on NBC's "The Voice" Monday night.

After advancing in last week's battle rounds, the Grand Rapids, Minnesota, resident – whose real name is Joe Bommersbach – got knocked out of the competition after singing the country tune "Mama's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys" by Waylon Jennings. (Watch his performance above.)

In the end, Blind Joe's coach Blake Shelton picked Barrett Baber as the winner of the knockout round.

"I have to make this decision based on one thing and that's who I think sang the best just then and the winner of this knockout is Barrett," Shelton said, according to Northland's News Center.

And because Blind Joe wasn't stolen by another coach, he was eliminated and won't advance to the live playoff rounds.


But Blind Joe isn't giving up his dream yet – he'll be performing Friday at the Sawmill Inn in Grand Rapids.
