Thumbs were sore by Tuesday night.

Fans of dynamic rock-and-roller Kat Perkins showed their support for a second consecutive week as they flocked to Twitter for five minutes to rescue the Scranton native from elimination.

After a nationwide vote spanning from Monday’s live episode of NBC’s “The Voice,” it was revealed Tuesday night that Perkins was one of the four contestants receiving the least votes. Three were to be sent packing but because of her fans, Perkins was saved for the second time in the 10-minute instant save window, much to the avail of her coach, Adam Levine.

Perkins sang her Heart out (and had fun, too) as she strolled the stage like a natural-born performer and sang the essential rock hit “Barracuda.”

“You’re loved, Kat,” Usher said.

As usual for Perkins, no judges had criticism for her performance. It was unanimous between the judges that Perkins should stay in the contest.

Levine named Perkins as one of the two best rock-and-roll artists that have ever appeared on the singing competition. After his rave reviews and pleas for Perkins to be rescued from the bottom three last week, Levine made sure to broadcast that he was livid that Perkins was again part of the bottom contestants.

It was viewed as a surprise that she was in the bottom four considering Perkins’ widely praised heavy metal cover of techno duo Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” on Monday’s show. That performance even surged on the iTunes Top 100 song list.

Adding further North Dakota representation to Monday’s episode was Hebron native and “The Voice” second season contestant Gwen Sebastian.

She joined judge Blake Shelton to perform their new single “My Eyes.”

With five contestants left, the competition now enters its semifinals stretch and a winner soon will be named America’s next top voice.

Watch NBC’s “The Voice” at 6 p.m. MST every Monday and Tuesday.
