Western Washington University alumnus Austin Jenckes continues to sing his way to success as he's made the top 12 on NBC's hit show "The Voice."
This week viewers picked their top two choices from each team to move on, plus each of the four team captains got a selection. The other two members of each team were eliminated Thursday night, Nov. 7.
After Jenckes' performance of The Black Crowes' "She Talks to Angels" earlier this week, he told the viewing audience, "I hope America believes in me."
They did, voting for him to advance to next week's round of live performances as part of country superstar Blake Shelton's team.
Jenckes moved to Nashville two years ago after graduating from WWU. He plays his late father's guitar in his performances.
Jenckes' perfomances can be seen on nbc.com/the-voice. The show airs Mondays at 8 p.m. and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
