On “The Voice,” the artists are divided into teams and each team has a celebrity coach. Umstattd performs as part of Adam Levine’s team. The playoff round was kicked off with a public vote, with the artist from each team who ended up with the greatest number of votes advancing to the next round of competition without a battle.

Unfortunately, Umstattd’s best Bono wasn’t enough to carry him to the top of his team. He will compete in the show’s next battle rounds on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
