“The Voice” season 16 comes to a close May 20 and 21 with Gyth Rigdon, Dexter Roberts, Andrew Sevener and Maelyn Jarmon vying to be the winner. Out of the running is Lisa Ramey, a St. Ann native who sailed through the earlier shows straight into the Top 24, before she was eliminated. Ramey, who currently lives in New York City, was on John Legend’s team on the show and received nothing but raves from her coach, though it didn’t lead to enough viewer votes to keep her on the show. She will perform on Tuesday's finale. 

Here’s a look at how other local singers have fared on TV’s biggest singing competitions.
