Former Pittsburgher James Wolpert will continue his quest to win NBC's “The Voice.” He survived the cut on Nov. 19 and will compete in the final eight next week.

The Lancaster native, who attended Carnegie Mellon University and worked at the Shadyside Apple store, was the first singer saved during Tuesday's elimination round, to the delight of his mother who was in the audience and coach Adam Levine. On Monday's show, he performed the classic ballad “Without You,” which was first recorded in 1970 by Badfinger.

Later in the show, Wolpert and two other contestants, Will Champlin and Kat Robichaud, performed the song, “Sugar, We're Going Down.”

During the “Voice Confessionals,” Wolpert shared his most embarrassing moment before the camera. “When I actually had to perform musical telegrams ... dressed as a banana.”

In the end, Robichaud, from Cee Lo Green's team, and Austin Jenckes, from Blake Shelton's team, were sent home.

“The Voice” airs at 8 p.m. Mondays and 9 p.m. Tuesday on NBC.
