After four weeks, the battle rounds have concluded on The Voice. Each coach’s team is now complete, with America voting on the 16 finalists' fates from now on.
Who were the final four aspirants to qualify for the finals? Let's take a look at last night's battles and see who made it through on the NBC competition ...
Team Adam: Jeff Jenkins vs. Casey Desmond
These two teamed up on Elton John’s “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me.” Casey was a strong contender, but she ultimately couldn’t beat Jeff ...

Team Cee Lo: Emily Valentine vs. Curtis Grimes
While Emily admitted she had a tiny crush on Curtis, the cowboy said he wouldn’t be distracted by a potential love match during "Need You Now."
Supposedly. They ended the performance with a kiss! Unfortunately for one of the singers (Emily) there was also a kiss goodbye afterward ...
