Tuesday night, The Voice top eight performed for a spot in the finals. Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton scored their team's singers. Those scores, along with America's votes, determined who advances.
So who got sent home and who's on to the final four?
Before we get to that, the show opened with all eight semifinalists singing a medley of "Freedom" and "Faith" by George Michael. It was pretty great:
On to the good and bad news. Each coach submitted a score, dividing up 100 points between their two members. America's votes were then added in, with equal weight, establishing who advanced and whose dreams ended.
Follow the jump to see who survived ...Vicci Martinez defeated Nakia
Cee Lo gave Nakia, whose Adam Lambert cover generated some online controversy this week the slightest of edges, with 51 compared to Vicci’s 49.
But it wasn't enough. America’s votes pushed Vicci’s score over Nakia’s!
Javier Colon defeated Casey Weston
Adam Levine was the only one of the four judges to take a real stand in this part of the complicated show, giving Javier a strong 65 to Casey's 35.
Levine said Javier needs his help to get over the top and win this thing now, while Casey is young and has a whole career ahead of her. True.
Dia Frampton defeated Xenia
Blake was legitimately proud and appreciative of both singers and couldn’t even bring himself to give one singer a higher score than the other.
He did a 50-50 split. America picked Dia.
Beverly McClellan defeated Frenchie Davis
Christina also took a flier with a 50-50 breakdown. Sorry, that's weak, they should have to at least make it 51-49. What's the point otherwise?
It was a tough call, we'll give her that. Both singers were great, and it was sad to see one go. But the viewers decided their finalist is Beverly.
What do you think? Did the voters (and judges) make the right decisions? Who do you think will triumph among the final four standouts?
