Muessigmann bids farewell to 'The Voice'

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Spencer's Casey Muessigmann concluded his run on "The Voice" after coach Blake Shelton selected Scottish rocker Terry McDermott over the local country performer in the battle round Monday night. Muessigmann and McDermott combined on Kansas rock classic, "Carry on Wayward Son," in the first battle, impressing all of the judges. After some deliberation and a commercial break - just prior to the big moment - Shelton chose McDermott. Shelton credited Muessigmann, pointing out, "Casey has shown the most growth in the rehearsals." He added, "Casey won't back down from any challenge." Muessigmann, who admitted disappointment, thanked Shelton and shared his appreciation for all he had learned while on the show. His parents, Jon and Gina Muessigmann, were among those in the audience. Immediately after the performance and decision, Muessigmann's Facebook page exploded with commenters - all of whom seemed to think Shelton had made the wrong choice. Some of the comments may have displayed a little bias. Attempts to reach Muessigmann were unsuccessful immediately after the show.

Casey did a great job, however the song was better suited for Terry. I think Blake made the right decision. Casey was very humble and handled the let down well. Very talented guy.
