Kelly Clarkson had a tough decision to make Tuesday night when she let go of the Cunningham Sisters after they performed in the Knockouts round on “The Voice.”

Macie and Marie Cunningham first appeared on the popular TV show on Sept. 28 when they auditioned and were selected for Team Kelly. Both Clarkson and pop superstar John Legend turned their chairs to try to scoop the duo up for their teams.

They went on to win in the Battles round last week, which moved them to the Knockouts. The Cunninghams sang Hillsong United’s “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail),” competing against Team Kelly member Hailey Mia.

Mia was the winner after performing a cover of Duncan Laurence’s “Arcade.”

In a video posted Tuesday night to the girls’ Facebook page, Macie (15) and Marie (14) called Mia a “queen” and said they wish nothing but the best for her. They also thanked the judges for supporting them.

What an honor 🥺😭❤️🙏🏼🙌🏼 Thank you The Voice on NBC‼️‼️ HaileyMia CONGRATULATIONS 🔥🔥🔥 #nbc #nbcthevoice #teamkelly #togodbetheglory #noregrets #grateful #oceans #hillsongunited #hamiltonproud

The Cunningham Sisters told their social media followers to “stay tuned” and that this is “just the beginning” for them in their singing careers.

On Tuesday’s show, Clarkson showed her pride in the young sisters, whose competition was even younger -- Mia is just 13 years old.

“Way to go, ladies,” Clarkson said as she gave the Cunninghams and Mia a standing ovation.
