Sorry, NBC. Still, each contestant got his or her due, the judges pared down the field efficiently, and we moved one step closer to the 16-person finals.
Let's break down Tuesday's battles and survivors on The Voice ...
Team Adam Levine - Rebecca Loebe vs. Devon Barley
Probably the best duet of the night, they sang Radiohead's hit song “Creep,” which Devon had never heard before, yet jibed perfectly with Rebecca on.
In the end, pre-med student Devon got the nod. Watch here:Team Christina Aguilera - Raquel Castro vs. Julia Eason
Christina paired pint-size teen Raquel Castro against the very tall Julia Eason, for Rihanna's “Only Girl In The World.” Raquel bulldozed right past Julia.
Aguilera advanced Raquel, or “Little Mama,” after this battle:
Team Cee Lo Green - Kelsey Rey vs. Tori and Taylor Thompson
Cee Lo paired Kelsey, a telegenic “internet sensation,” against cute-overload sisters Tori and Taylorr, for a rendition of Natasha Bedingfield's “Unwritten.”
The Thompson sisters prevailed in the end, with good reason:
Team Blake Shelton - Dia Frampton vs. Serabee
Blake pitted Dia Frampton – a clear-voiced “children's novelist” – with ultra-aggressive hippie rocker Serabee, for “You Can't Hurry Love.” Interesting call.
Who prevailed in this one? We'll keep you in suspense ...
What did you think of The Voice last night? Are you digging the show in general? Will the hype return now that Idol and DWTS are over?
