Kat Perkins continues to prove she’s a fighter.

Following a nationwide vote after on NBC’s “The Voice,”, host Carson Daly stunned Perkins’ fan base, and several of the judges, to reveal she was in the bottom three.

In hopes of continuing on in the contest, Perkins returned to her rock roots as she belted out “Paris (Ooh La La)” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. It was a performance she hoped would sway the voting public into keeping her in the competition.

Judge Blake Shelton said Perkins gave an “electrifying performance” and Usher admitted “The Voice” was a popularity contest, but her team judge Adam Levine took the news of her bottom three ranking the hardest. He essentially begged voters to keep Perkins in to see her go all the way to the finals.

“This girl deserves to go all the way,” Levine said of Perkins, following his standing ovation for her performance.

Daly then opened Twitter on Tuesday night for viewers to cast immediate votes for 10 minutes during the show in an effort to save their favorite. Thousands clambered to their phones, computers, and tablets to tweet Perkins’ name followed by #VoiceSave.

After a tense commercial break, the show returned and Daly announced Perkins was saved having about 60 percent of the vote.

Leading up to Tuesday’s vote, Perkins showed a different side of her talent during Monday night’s show.

She met with legendary singer Graham Nash of the popular
folk rock group Crosby, Stills & Nash.

“My dad is going to die when he sees this,” Perkins said when she met Nash.

It was an emotional performance for Perkins as she took to a dimly lit stage, accompanied by an acoustic guitar, and gave her own version of Stevie Nicks’ legendary soft-sung hit “Landslide.”

It was a chill-inducing performance by Perkins and it was evident when she began tearing up and Levine blew her a kiss.

“I’m happy we got to show (the song) through you,” Levine said. “You’re a blissfully perfect, amazing singer.”

Watch Perkins’ journey continue on NBC’s The Voice next week – Monday and Tuesday beginning at 6 p.m. MDT.
