A Warner Robins man’s run on NBC’s “The Voice” came to an end during Tuesday night’s episode.

The episode was part of the “battle rounds,” in which two contestants on the same team sing the same song together, and only one of them is chosen to stay.

Thirty-one-year-old Jacob Poole, the musical director at New Hope International, sang “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” by Fall Out Boy with fellow contestant Matthew Schuler.

At the end of the song, celebrity coach Christina Aguilera chose Schuler to remain on her team, and Poole was sent home.

Aguilera had positive words to say about both contestants.

“Both of you blew everyone away,” she said. “You both are so beyond crazy talented.”

Since the blind auditions, contestants have been working with their celebrity coaches to hone their craft. Other coaches include Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton.
