The Voice 2023 LIVE — Tom Nitti exits Team Reba in shock move as Ruby Leigh’s performance leaves fans with ‘chills’

THREE Team Reba contestants are going to The Voice’s live shows after one artist left in a shocking move.

At the beginning of Monday’s episode, coach Reba McEntire announced that Tom Nitti had left the show for “personal reasons.”

After Tom’s exit, Ms. Monét returned to the show as Team Reba’s Super Save artist. She joined Jordan Rainer, Jacquie Roar, Noah Spencer, and Ruby Leigh in the Playoffs performances.

Fans took to social media to rave over Ruby’s performance of Linda Ronstadt’s Long Long Time as one wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: “Chills. Well done, RubyLeigh. Hard to believe she’s only 16.”

“Full body chills!!! Best live performance ever on #TheVoice Reba is an amazing coach and Ruby Leigh is a [star] in the making,” another shared.

Reba chose Ruby, Jordan, and Jacquie to move on in the competition to the live shows.

Tune in to The Voice tomorrow at 9 pm ET on NBC to see John Legend’s team compete in the Playoffs. Fans can also catch new episodes on PeacockFuboSling TV, and Hulu Live TV.
