Pryor Baird waits until Wednesday to see if he’ll advance on “The Voice”

Anticipation is building as to whether Central Coast native Pryor Baird will make the Top 12 on "The Voice."

Baird sang Dolly Parton’s "9 to 5" Tuesday night in the second of three live playoff shows this week – live on the East Coast, at least.

Ten singers performed Tuesday night and ten more will perform Wednesday night, all vying for just eight spots in the Top 12 (the first four spots were claimed Monday).

"It’s hard to imagine you not getting through just because I feel the popularity and momentum that you have on this show, just from social media and just going back home, and you’re the one that everybody talks to me about, man," Blake Shelton said about Pryor.

That sort of love from his coach could really help Pryor. If the viewers’ votes don’t carry him into next week, there’s a chance Blake may do it. Each coach gets to pick one last artist to complete their rosters at the end of Wednesday night’s show.

Pryor says he feels a connection with Blake.

"He’s great. He’s awesome. He’s a super cool guy, just like everybody would think. He’s just your normal, everyday, run-of-the-mill guy," said Pryor.

"The Voice" playoff round continues Wednesday at 8 p.m. on KSBY.
