Wednesday, 17 April 2013 09:07 Published in Local News

One of the youngest performers on TV's "The Voice" is St. Louis-area coffeehouse singer-songwriter Caroline Glaser. 

18-year-old Caroline Glaser of Chesterfield  moves forward on the hit TV singing competition that airs locally on KSDK-TV Channel 5, Monday and Tuesday nights.

During last night's battle rounds, her mentor Blake Shelton decided to drop her in favor of a fellow contestant. 

But Adam Levine and Usher enacted their “steal” option, allowing her to stay on the show. Glaser opted to go to Levine’s team.

Special guest and fellow Missouri native Sheryl Crow appeared on the show as guest adviser to Glaser and her competitor.
