The 17-year-old daughter of actress Candace Cameron Bure was among the eight hopefuls who were sent home after the first week of “The Voice” Battles.

Coach Adam Levine chose to keep Riley Elmore instead of Natasha Bure in the competition after the two belted a “Cry Me a River” duet. Elmore’s distinct voice won Levine’s approval despite Bure’s theatrical performance during the Voice Battle rounds.

Despite her daughter's elimination, the "A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" movie star was a proud mother to Natasha.
