Dez Duron gets eliminated from 'The Voice'
UNDATED (WHDH) -- Two more voices were silenced on NBC’s hit show “The Voice” Tuesday night. Team Christina’s Dez Duron sang his swan song as the field was trimmed to six.
The elimination of Duron means Aguilera is the first coach this season to lose all her singers in the competition.
Despite the disappointment, it looks like Duron has a bright future.
“It was never about just a competition for the competition. It was about the performance. So, I'm proud of what we put together, had fun every week and left my heart on the stage every time,” Duron said on the “Today” show.
And if that's not enough, Duron got into Yale where he was a quarterback.
“I played football at Yale, so Harvard was our rival, and they have a beautiful stadium. That's one of my favorites I've ever been to,” Duron said.
Before getting cut Tuesday night, Duron sailed to the top of the favorites. But it was actually the Louisiana boy's second time on "The Voice" after getting kicked off last season.
But he spent the past year in Los Angeles keeping busy -- even booking a modeling gig for American Eagle. He told 7News it was a surreal experience.
“I got to go to New York, see the big billboard in Times Square. I started crying, like what is happening?” Duron told 7’s Nancy Chen. “It’s been a crazy few months. So I just feel really blessed and humbled.”
The newest “Voice” champion will be crowned Dec. 18.
