Andrew Jannakos’ time on “The Voice” has come to an end.

The Flowery Branch singer didn’t receive enough votes from the show’s viewers to keep him on the competition singing show and also didn’t benefit from a save or steal from any of the coaches.

On Monday, Jannakos, who was on Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine’s team, went up against Blake Shelton’s Dexter Roberts.

After Jannakos sang “Yours” by Russell Dickerson, he received praise from his coach as well as coaches John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.

But his performance didn’t win viewers over, as Jannakos was sent home Tuesday night.

Before the results were read, Levine was able to offer some words of encouragement to Jannakos.

“I think if you advance, great,” Levine said. “I think if you don’t, you should get in a car and drive down to Nashville and get a record deal because you look so cool for what you do and it’s so different. The juxtaposition of those things is amazing.”

He said Jannakos is “an incredible country singer with range and power.”

After Jannakos received the news and before he walked down to give his coach a hug, he had a moment to say goodbye.

“I just want to say I appreciate everything that you’ve done,” Jannakos said. “It’s been absolutely incredible. And for you to see it in me and believe in me to be here has been absolutely incredible.”
