MANILA, Philippines — Filipino-American singer Amy Vachal made it through the second live show week of the American reality talent show "The Voice" on Tuesday (Wednesday morning, Philippine time)

The 26-year-old artist survived another week in the show thanks to her performance of Drake's "Hotline Bling" on Monday.

"I don't think there's ever been a more elegant and classy performance of a song about a booty call in the history of music," "The Voice" coach Blake Shelton quipped. "That was, like, unbelievable."

"Amy, you always make songs yours. It's an amazing, uncanny ability that not many people have," Pharell Williams said.

Amy is part of coach Adam Levine's team.

Mark Hood, who sang "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours," was eliminated from the competition.

This leaves Amy and 10 other contestants vying for win for the ninth season of "The Voice."

In "The Voice US," finalists are saved based on a voting system that factors in iTunes singles purchases of the contestant's performance for the week, online votes and votes via the show's official app.

Amy's "Hotline Bling" single is number six on the iTunes Singles Chart, second only to Jordan Smith's "Great Is Thy Faithfulness," which reached number one. — Chuck Smith
