York County's Devix will compete on another week of the hit television show "The Voice" after earning enough audience support to advance to the next round of the singing competition.

Devix, also known as Eric Torres, was joined by 15 other competitors vying for that top spot on the show this week. In a live playoff that aired Monday night, the 28-year-old Torres performed a cover of Kings of Leon's "Sex on Fire."

At this point in the competition, audience voting determines who advances through the competition.

On Tuesday, Torres won enough audience votes to advance through the next week.

"I can’t thank you all enough for the support you’ve given me and the love you’ve shown," Torres said Wednesday. "I am forever grateful, and I’m excited to be moving on to the Top 13 of 'The Voice.'"

Originally born in Queens, Eric moved around with his family until they found themselves in York County. He started performing in his own high school rock band as a Dallastown student before booking local gigs.

Now, his life is dominated by rehearsals as he competes for a chance to win the TV singing competition.

Episodes of "The Voice" air at 8 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday on WGAL or via streaming on Peacock.
