ST. CHARLES – A St. Charles North High School alumnus on Tuesday night once again advanced to another level of NBC’s “The Voice” singing competition TV show. 

Jeffery Austin, who graduated from St. Charles North High School in 2009, was the third artist announced on the show’s Tuesday broadcast with enough votes to make the semifinals.

Korin Bukowski, one of Austin’s teammates, was eliminated Tuesday. A total of nine singers remain in the competition, including Austin.

“YOU guys did this for me and I’m so grateful,” Austin, 24, tweeted after the results were announced during the first half of the one-hour Tuesday show. “Ready to keep earning your love in the semifinals!”

Austin performed singer Labrinth’s song “Jealous” for his latest performance, which aired Monday.

Each week the contestants who receive the lowest number of votes will be eliminated from the show. Country music star Dolly Parton will mentor the contestants during the next week of competition, singer and “Voice” coach Blake Shelton said Tuesday on the show.

The winner of the show will receive a recording contract.
