Lisa Punch eliminated

Guyanese singer Lisa Punch was eliminated from ABC’s Rising Star on Sunday night during Week 7 of the series after her rendition of Alicia Keyes’ “This Girl is on Fire” failed to attract more than 59% of votes on the East Coast.

Many Guyanese went to bed on Sunday night hoping that the West Coast votes would push her over the top as it had before, but this was not the case. She was only able to amass 63% of the votes after West Coast voting closed and this was not enough to keep her in the competition.
