Baylor Singers: Savion Wright eliminated on Idol; Clinton Washington joins Team Xtina on The Voice

Baylor singers continue to shine on the national stage — but this has been a good news/bad news week.

clint washingtonThe good news is that Clinton Washington ’11, a digital marketer from New York, knocked the ball out of the park during Monday night’s blind auditions on NBC’s The Voice.  His rendition of Candle in the Wind earned him a turn of the chair from Christina Aguilera and he’ll face “teammate” India Carney next week in a faceoff that judge Pharrell Williams describes in the show previews as “the best technical performance” he’s seen in the battle round.

The bad news is that Baylor senior Savion J. Wright was one of four male singers cut after last week’s Top 24 performances.  He took his elimination with great class — even as his many fans took to Twitter to rail against the decision.  He said one of the highlights of the difficult night was getting a hug from Judge Jennifer Lopez who he thanked for her support.  He also tweeted a picture of himself with the other three who were eliminated saying they were preparing for the “Better Luck Next Time” tour.
