Viewers learned the identity of the final eight on The Voice results show last night.

But that likely wasn't the highlight of the program for many viewers.

A couple days after performing “Blank Space” live for the first time (at the 2014 American Music Awards), Taylor Swift once again treated an audience to this psycho girlfriend anthem.

Watch her do so now:

Swift served as an advisor on The Voice during last month’s Knockout Round, assisting Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Pharrell and Blake Shelton with their team member.

This time around, however, Taylor was free from offering any critiques, instead leaving herself open to be judged by the mentors sitting directly in front of her.

The Voice results are in after Monday's Top 10 performances, and those striving for greatness were sweating bullets waiting to learn if they would sing on.

Some favorites continued to impress on The Voice Season 7 Episode 20, while some slipped up and other dark horse candidates made a case to continue.

Alas, only eight spots remained, and it was the end of the road for ...

Anita Antoinette (Team Gwen) and Reagan James (Team Blake)!

Ryan Sill, for the second straight week, won the Instant Save.

It was a bit of a surprise to see both them out, but the fans have spoken and the ladies have not fared well with America's votes deciding the outcome.

Amazingly, Team Pharrell's DaNica Shirey became the only female singer to make the top eight in what is turning out to be a male-dominated season.

Team Adam, meanwhile, has all three finalists left in Matt McAndrew, Damien and Chris Jamison, none of whom have been in the bottom three thus far.

The Voice Season 7 Episode 20 saw the remaining ten singers vie for America's votes once more as this fall's iteration of the NBC competition winds down.

Only eight spots remain on tonight's results show, so it's crunch time.

Did any of the 10 aspiring stars still standing begin to separate themselves from the field? Did any of them underachieve to the point where they're in danger?

Let's break down all of the performances from Monday night ...

Craig Wayne Boyd - I Walk the Line (The Voice Top 10)
Craig Wayne Boyd makes his bid for the Top 8 with a cover of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line."

For the first time in the series, the teams were treated to guest mentors during a live round: Patrick Stump, Christina Aguilera, Colbie Caillat, and Diana Ross!

Also legendary producer Clive Davis was on hand to assist.

What could they coax out of the ten stars in training?

Craig Wayne Boyd (Team Blake): With a cover of Johnny Cash's hit "Walk the Line," he earned a standing ovation with his authenticity, talent and charisma.

Matt McAndrew (Team Adam): He took on Coldplay's "Fix You" with an upper range that gave Gwen (and probably a few others) the chills in a big way.

The Voice results are in, and following Monday's Top 12 performances, the aspiring singers were on pins and needles waiting to see if their journey was over.

Some favorites emerged on The Voice Season 7 Episode 18, while some faltered and other dark horse candidates also made their case to advance.

Alas, it was the end of the road for ...

The Voice Season 7 Top 12

Sugar Joans and Jessie Pitts.

Ryan Sills also found himself in the Bottom Three, but America saved him with its Instant Tweets, carrying Team Gwen's baby faced singer onward.

The exits of Joans (Team Pharrell) and Pitts (Team Blake) mean only three women advanced to the Top 10 in Season 7. But there is yet another twist:

Once we reach the final three, all of the top 12 will be invited back, and it's up to viewers to decide who returns as the first-ever "wild card" contestant!

The Voice Season 7 Episode 18 saw the Top 12 sing for the glory and to advance to the next round as the home stretch of the season begins at last.

There are no more blind auditions, battles, knockouts, or coaches' reprieves.

It all comes down to the votes now, and the contenders who have already risen above the pretenders must reach another level to remain in the competition.

Who's got what it takes and who's likely headed home? Let's find out ...

Matt McAndrew - Take Me to Church (The Voice Top 12)
Matt McAndrew gives his best to Hozier's "Take Me to Church."

Matt McAndrew (Team Adam), "Take Me To Church": Matt brought the house down with this one, thanks to the raw talent of his vocals and the  theatrics as well.

Hands down, the performance of the night in the opinion of many viewers, and even if you preferred others, he cemented his place as a major contender here.

Craig Jamison (Team Adam), "Jealous": The singer's falsetto stole the show and turned what could've been a bland pop cover into much, much more.

Damien (Team Adam), "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother": Talk about rounding out the night on a high note (and every note) for Team Adam. Powerful stuff.

The Voice results are in, and they made for a night of triumph and tears Wednesday night, as only 12 artists survived among the 20 who made it this far.

America's votes saved two members on each team of five singers, which forced each of the four coaches to rescue one more of their three in jeopardy.

So who's in and who's out? Let's break it down by team ...

The Voice Season 7 Top 12

Team Blake saw 15-year-old Reagan James and Craig Wayne Boyd, a Nashville-based father, safe after The Voice Season 7 Episode 15 performances.

That left Shelton to choose between Taylor Brashears, James David Carter and Jessie Pitts for the final spot, and he ultimately opted to save Pitts.

A steal from Team Gwen Stefani, Jessie has been living on the brink for some time, and Shelton chose to take him along at least one more week.

The Voice Season 7 Episode 16 saw The Live Playoffs continue, with 10 of the 20 surviving contestants giving it their all in hopes of making it to next week.

With the top 20 artists performing Monday and Tuesday, and results announced Wednesday night, the week will end with the field pared down to just 12.

Two artists from each of the four coaches' squads will advance from America's votes, and each coach will select one more to move on to the final dozen.

Make sense? Nice. The Voice Season 7 Episode 15 saw the first 10 aspiring stars perform for all the marbles. Now let's get down to the second group of 10!

Luke Wade - Let's Get It On (The Voice Playoffs)
Luke Wade delivers his own soulful take on Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On."

While Adam Levine and Blake Shelton's pupils sang Monday night, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell's teams took the stage Tuesday to vie for spots in the top 12.

Ryan Sill of Team Gwen kicked it off with One Republic's "I Lived." His teammate Bryana Salaz was next, singing 5 Seconds of Summer's' "Amnesia,"

Anita Antoinette took on Meghan Trainor's smash hit "All About That Bass," while Ricky Manning did his Ricky thing on Sam Smith's "Lay Me Down."

The Voice Season 7 Episode 15 was the start of The Live Playoffs. The Blind Auditions are over. The Battles a thing of the past. The Knockouts a distant memory.

It's time for the cream of the crop to rise as we head into the home stretch!

With the top 20 artists performing Monday and Tuesday, and results announced Wednesday night, the week will end with the field pared down to just 12.

Two artists from each of the four teams will advance from the viewers' votes, and each coach will name one more singer to move on beyond this week.

We clear? Good. Now let's get down to the first 10 performances!

Taylor Brashears - Long Time Gone (The Voice Playoffs)
Taylor Brashears delivers her take on the country classic "Long Time Gone."

Taylor Brashears (Team Blake): “Long Time Gone.” Her take on the Dixie Chicks song never quite hit the mark, or at least its full potential, out of the gate.

Chris Jamison (Team Adam): “Don’t.” His choice of Ed Sheeran's smash hit song gave him an edge, and he handled it with a lot of charisma and skill.

Jessie Pitts (Team Blake): “Holding Out for a Hero.” Jessie changed up this power ballad to make it powerfully and uniquely her own. She looks like a contender.

James David Carter (Team Blake): “Two of a Kind, Workin’ on a Full House.” By far his best performance on the date and likely enough to get through.

On The Voice Season 7 Episode 13, another group of aspiring singing sensations sought to lay everything on the line and advance to the live playoffs.

Who kept their dreams alive and who's headed home after Monday?

Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton

Allison Bray vs. Taylor Brashears (Team Blake)

Bray's cover of Dixie Chicks' "Sin Wagon" against Brashears' take on Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" gave Blake a tough call in this country girl showdown.

It came down to preference, as Pharrell said, with Brashears' control and Bray's stage presence both strong. In the end, Shelton picked Brashears.

Winner: Taylor Brashears!

The Voice Season 7 Episode 12 saw more do-or-die performances as the remaining singers gave it their all on stage, knowing it was either win or go home.

Or at least win or pick up a coach's steal or go home. Close enough.

So who survived to sing another day on NBC and who got KO'd?

Let's break down the Knockout performances from last night ...

Jean Kelley - Chandelier (The Voice Knockouts)
Looking for a ticket to the live shows, Jean Kelley pours herself into Sia's "Chandelier."

Team Gwen Stefani got things started with Troy Ritchie, who covered Andre 3000's "Hey Ya!" and Taylor John Williams who sang Tears For Fears' "Mad World."

Alessandra Castronovo and Mia Pfirrman followed up, with Castronovo on Emeli Sande's "Next To Me," while Pfirrman choosing Christina Perri's "Human."

Elyjuh Rene opted to sing Chris Brown's "With You" and Ricky Manning turned in a rendition of Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" during the final face-off of the night.

How did they do? Find out below ...
