The Voice: Miley Cyrus sobs after team member Janice Freeman gets voted off as field narrows to top 10 on NBC show
The 25-year-old pop star had become extremely attached to the talented 32-year-old contestant and didn't conceal her emotions.
'If anybody deserves to stick around in this competition it is you. You are a fighter, you are a warrior, you are a role model and, more than any of that, you are The Voice, I am in complete shock, I love you so much,' she cried.
Wild thing: Miley Cyrus performed with her singers in a wild leopard print outfit before losing Janice Freeman on Tuesday's episode of The Voice
'I'm not trying to cry for you guys to vote for Janice,' she added, addressing the viewers at home.
'This isn't what this is about…I feel like I've gotten one of my closest friends…I am a shameless supporter of you…I believe in heaven because of people like you,' she yelled.
Janice, who has been a strong contender from the get-go, was also in tears.
'Miley, you have been the best thing that has ever happened to me, in my entire life, and I appreciate you. You will have a friend for life and anything that you need from me, I am here, so thank you for what you have given me,' cried Janice, who is a cancer survivor from Compton, California.
