Following the impressive battle between Chavon Rodgers and David Vogel, who performed a rocking collaboration on Fall Out Boy's "Sugar, We're Goin Down," Ari was faced with the difficult choice. "This is so unimaginably hard for me," she said of picking which of her singers got to continue on to the Knockout Rounds. "I love and care about you both and you're both so talented."
After her emotional deliberation, Ari picked David as the winner of the battle, which meant the end of the line for Chavon.
"Thank you so much for seeing something in me and taking me along for this ride," the singer said graciously, thanking his coach. "I love you, and I'm very appreciative."
However, when the Tulsa, Oklahoma, singer stepped off the stage, he walked right past Ari, who was waiting with open arms to give him a hug!
Thankfully, Kelly Clarkson didn't leave Ari hanging for long, rushing over to comfort her. "He didn't see you!" Kelly insisted, though Ari wasn't so sure.
Chavon later took to his Instagram Story to set the record straight, writing, "Hey guys! Just wanted to clear something up. I totally did not see Ariana getting up to hug me."
"I had my eyes down and was headed offstage after I was able to thank her for everything!" he continued. "When I got backstage, a producer told me what happened and I was devastated. Ariana is so amazing and I am so grateful to her for everything. I love her so so much."
