British boy band The Wanted performed on The Voice, and didn't hesitate to describe one of the less fun aspects of that experience in an interview.

That being Christina Aguilera.

The judge "is a total bitch," the band's Tony Parker ranted to Now FM, in an interview that has since been yanked from YouTube. He continues:

"She might not be a total bitch in real life, but to us, she was a total bitch ... she just sat there and didn't speak to us. Wouldn't even look at us."

"She was quite rude," Siva Kaneswaran (second from right), added, backing up the claim by Parker (second from left). "I mean, Who does that?"

Max George (middle) chimed in, "She was a bit scary, to be honest."

When asked to compare their time on The Voice with their recent appearance on American Idol, George said, "J. Lo's hot, Christina's nothing special."

The Wanted performed on The Voice the same night Justin Bieber showed up to debut a preview of his "Boyfriend" video, and said that Aguilera was equally cold to the "Baby" crooner, making a weird face as Bieber went in for a hug.

Aguilera, for her part, denies she snubbed anyone: "Haha," she tweeted. "Can't a girl have a little Bieber Fever after getting kissed by the Biebs?"

After Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green sent home Pip and James Massone, respectively, in The Voice's instant elimination round Monday, they had to turn around and cut another contestant apiece on last night's results show.

Tony Lucca (Adam) and Jamar Rogers (Cee Lo) advanced from America's votes.

That left Mathai and Katrina Parker to sing for Adam's save, with Cheesa and Juliet Simms battling for Cee Lo's spot in the semifinals. Who moved on?

Mathai sang a spirited version of Carrie Underwood's "Cowboy Casanova" but it was Katrina Parker's version of "Perfect" by Pink that won over the panel.

Adam struggled with the decision but finally chose Katrina to continue on.

"I'm shocked and obviously very happy," Katrina said, fighting through the tears. "This is very bittersweet because I'm very attached to Mathai."

Mathai, for her part, was a class act as she thanked Adam, the show and America for "showing me how much I want to sing for the rest of my life."

As for Team Cee Lo, Cheesa and Juliet went toe to toe with the former belting out Kelly Clarkson's "Already Gone" and the latter "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia.

Cee Lo hammed and hawed a bit, but he ultimately saved Juliet from elimination, citing the extent to which America has rallied around her this spring.

Not enough to save her with their votes, but still, point taken. Do you think Adam and Cee Lo made the right calls? Who will win The Voice? Tell us below!

Cheesa's Whitney Houston cover brought the house down, but Tony Lucca's unorthodox song choice also served notice that he's a contender on The Voice:

"Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears.

Lucca, who was famously slammed by Christina Aguilera a few weeks back, came up with a terrific rebuttal against his fellow former Mousketeer.

This rocking version of Brit's breakout hit:

"That was really smart," Blake Shelton said of the bold song pick, which got him through until at least tonight. His coach, Adam Levine, added, "You did something different and refreshing and I'm so proud of you for having the courage to do it."

Will America vote Tony through to the semifinals tonight?

If not, do you think Adam (who cut Pip loose on last night's instant elimination episode) will take his protege to the next round? Tell us below.

Facing The Voice's instant elimination round, Cheesa knew she had to make an impression that lasted with coach Cee Lo Green, his fellow panelists, and America.

Her courageous performance of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" did just that.

It earned a standing ovation from Christina Aguilera, who's been surprisingly hard to please at times this season. "That is a beloved song," the coach said.

"Those are huge shoes to fill and you still managed to do you own thing. I loved it."

Do you agree with Christina? Cee Lo did, at least to the point where James Massone got the boot and Cheesa lived to sing another day. Will she survive tonight?

That's up to the viewers of The Voice. The top vote-getter among Cee Lo's remaining three team members will advance, with the coach picking the other semifinalist.

At least after last week's instant elimination twist was sprung on Xtina and Blake, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green knew it was coming last night on The Voice.

But that didn't make it any easier.

Their teams performed Monday night on The Voice, going all out with a wide variety of performances that crossed many genres and tugged at heartstrings.

The Voice Coaches

Team Cee Lo's Jamar Rogers started the night off with a bang, performing "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi. "You are such a strong, such a sweet spirit," coach Cee Lo told Jamar, who is HIV positive. "We can't help but all be inspired by [you]."

Katrina Parker sang "Jar of Hearts" and thrilled the judges by coming out of her shell. "It's like seeing you and hearing you for the first time," Cee Lo said. "You have one of the best voices now," Adam said. "You've evolved so much."

Matthai performed "I'm Like a Bird" by Nelly Furtado, though some didn't think she truly connected. Ditto James Massone on "Just the Way You Are."

Mousketeer Tony Lucca pulled off a rocking version of "... Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears. "That was really smart," Blake Shelton said.

After Monday's instant elimination shocker, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton were forced to cut another team member each last night on The Voice.

On Team Christina, Chris Mann earned the most votes, earning a spot in the final eight and leaving Ashley De La Rosa and Lindsey Pavao to sing for Xtina.

Ashley performed "You & I," while Lindsey tackled "Please Don't Go." It was agonizing, but Aguilera picked Lindsey to advance, sending Ashley packing.

"I really love these two girls a lot. I really believe in you," the "Fighter" singer said before making her decision. "You both are complete superstars."

On Team Blake, Jermaine Paul moved on via America's votes.

That left Erin Willet to sing "Proud Mary" and RaeLynn to perform "If I Die Young." in hopes of winning Shelton's favor, and it appeared both won him over.

Sadly, he couldn't take both along to the final eight.

"I love both of you and we have a bond for different reasons," the country star said, visibly unsettled. "This is way rougher than I thought it would be ... "

As the credits rolled, host Carson Daly practically begged Shelton to make a decision, and only then did he save Erin, sending RaeLynn home in tears.

Next week, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green's teams face off in what's sure to be another couple of difficult nights for the judges and contestants alike.

Did Christina and Blake make the right choices? Which of the singers who actually survived do you think stands the better chance of winning it all?

Christina Aguilera had to make an instant elimination on The Voice Monday, but not before performing her hit "Fighter" with her remaining team members.

The 31-year-old, decked out in a revealing outfit, was joined by her singing proteges Chris Mann, Ashley De La Rosa, Jesse Campbell, and Lindsey Pavao.

And that's not all. Los Angeles' famed Crenshaw High School choir also joined Christina and her team on stage for the performance. Take a look below!

In a surprise move, Aguilera opted to let Jesse Campbell go last night, even after a stirring performance of Beyonce's "Halo" that brought the house down earlier.

Not only did many feel he should have survived last night, but Adam Levine even told him he was a "huge, huge favorite" to win the entire competition.

Guess he didn't impress the one person who mattered. Chris, Ashley and Lindsey learn their fate tonight as America's votes decide who continues on.

With all the teams narrowed to four singers, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera mentored their proteges on The Voice's quarterfinals Monday night ...

... and had to axe one on the spot.

That's right, ANOTHER Voice format change! In an unprecedented twist, both coaches were obligated to immediately eliminate one of their charges.

Tonight, America's votes will determine who else will go home from each team. "I think it's caught us off guard a little bit. ... It sucks," Blake said.

Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera

From Team Blake, RaeLynn performed a rendition of Jason Aldean's "Country Girl," prompting Shelton to say he was proud and that she kicks ass.

Jermaine Paul was dubbed Christina's "favorite" after his rendition of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds." Blake called this a "turning point" for Paul.

From Aguilera's team, Ashley De La Rosa marked her 18th birthday with a rock version of Jewel's "Foolish Games" that was very well received.

Before they had to make their impossible decisions, Shelton and Aguilera each took the stage to perform with their remaining team members.

Team Christina performed Aguilera's own hit "Fighter," while Team Blake tackled the Eagles' "Heartache Tonight." Then came the hard part ...

The Voice cut four out of these 12 hopefuls last night in its ever-confusing elimination process, but its second-ever live results show was still lightning quick.

Three members out of six each from Team Adam Levine and Team Cee Lo were voted through to the next round, with the coaches getting an additional pick.

Who were the lucky contestants?

From Team Adam, America chose the following artists: Mathai, Pip and Tony Lucca, who advanced despite Christina Aguilera's best efforts the other night.

That left Kim Yarbrough, Karla Davis and Katrina Parker to sing for their lives.

Katrina sang "Don't Speak" and was unanimously picked by the judges, including the only one whose opinion mattered in this case, Levine. She moved on.

From Team Cee Lo, Juliet Simms, Jamar Rogers and James Massone were safe. That left Cheesa, Tony Vincent and Erin Martin to sing for Cee Lo's vote.

"My head says Tony," Cee Lo confessed, "but my heart says Cheesa."

Last night's eight join last week's surviving members in the top 16:

Team Blake: Erin Willett, Jermaine Paul, RaeLynn and Jordis Unga. Team Christina: Jesse Campbell, Lindsey Pavao, Chris Mann and Ashley De La Rosa.

"Mickey Mouse Club" connections only get you so far apparently.

Last night on The Voice, Christina Aguilera offered some less-than-glowing words for the falsetto-singing Tony Lucca, one of Adam Levine's proteges.

After a rendition of "In Your Eyes," Christina called him "one-dimensional," said she thinks there are better voices on the show, and hopes The Voice doesn't become about "celebrity sway" that keeps fan favorites like Tony in the competition.

Adam's response: "Wow. That was honest."

Popular with fans and celebrities alike, Lucca got the support of Justin Timberlake, a MMC alum along with Aguilera and Britney Spears, on Twitter Monday.

Will he survive? He'll have to be one of the top three vote-getters among Adam Levine's six team members - or get Levine to save him with the fourth spot.

Think it'll happen? Tune in tonight to find out.
