PORT ARTHUR — Fans of DeAndre Nico are circulating a petition protesting DeAndre Nico's elimination from NBC's The Voice Tuesday night.

The Washington Post called DeAndre's elimination "bizarre" after The Voice crew chose to advance a sick teammate instead.

Nico performed "All of Me" by John Legend. But his coach, Adam Levine, said that he was sad to say he was asking viewers to vote for Strange because she had not been able to "sing for her life."

DeAndre had already asked his fans to save him if things went unfavorably around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday before the show started.
