Muskogee’s The Swon Brothers continue to vie for the title of “The Voice” as the hit reality TV show’s live playoffs continue at 7 p.m. today and Tuesday on NBC.

As previously reported, Zach and Colton Swon made it through to the Top 12 in last Wednesday’s first Season 4 live elimination episode, becoming the first duo in the show’s history to make it to the live playoffs.

After host Carson Daly revealed which two of Team Blake’s four remaining contenders were safe based on the public’s vote – Danielle Bradbury, 16, of Texas, and Baylor University student Holly Tucker – Oklahoma country music superstar and “The Voice” coach Blake Shelton had to decide whether to save The Swon Brothers or Kentucky country crooner Justin Rivers.

“I love all three of you guys,” Shelton said. “I respect you as men and as great singers and artists. There’s a reason all of y’all made it this far.”

He added, “For the sake of keeping as different and diverse as I can at this point in the competition … I’m going to save The Swon Brothers.”

The brothers show off their Okie charm and hilarious sense of humor in this video interview with “The Voice” social media correspondent Christina Milian:
