Miranda Lambert, country star and wife of The Voice coach Blake Shelton, will perform a duet with contestant Dia Frampton on Wednesday's finale.

"Miranda is an amazing artist and it will be fascinating to see her blend her talents with those of Dia," said Paul Telegdy, NBC V.P. of programming.

"This special duet is what The Voice represents to our audience."

Here's Dia's performance in the semifinals. She's a contender!

NBC's statement continued:

"Together, Miranda and Blake, who represent a true power couple in country music, will help provide a memorable finale for our first season."

Miranda Lambert said, "I am thrilled to perform on my favorite new show. It's been a joy watching my husband grow so attached to his team. Truthfully, I am a little jealous that I am not a coach myself. I can't wait to be a part of it."

Frampton will compete against Javier Colon, Beverly McClellan and Vicci Martinez on June 28; the winner will be announced the next night.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert got married last month.

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 ...

The Voice highlighted its final eight contestants last night.

But instead of focusing on the performances, Twitter was alive this morning with buzz over one of Adam Levine's critiques.

As seen below, in praising Nakia for his cover of “Whataya Want From Me,” the Maroon 5 singer took a few seemingly random jabs at Adam Lambert.

“I’m not familiar with that song, but you just forced me to like it,” Levine said. “I’m pretty sure, although I’ve never heard that song before, that you probably sang it better than the person that sang it originally."

Was Levine simply giving Nakia props? Perhaps. But his repeated references to being unfamiliar with the original song and artist have raised the ire of Lambert lovers.

On this week’s episode of The Voice, two of the coaches cut their teams down to size and the remaining eight contenders vied for spots in the finals.

The show also featured lives performance by Blake Shelton and Maroon 5, Adam Levine's band, with Christina Aguilera pitching in on the latter.

Here's Adam and Christina on "Moves Like Jagger" ...

Okay, on to the actual show. Cee Lo Green picked Nakia to go with America's choice, Vicci Martinez to stay. Pretty much no-brainers to advance.

America picked Javier Colon from Adam's side, following his rendition of “Angel” on last week's show. Adam selected Casey Weston to move on.

Eight are left, two from each team. Four will go home next, leaving four in the finals of The Voice. The cream is beginning to rise to the top.

Let's check out ALL of the elite eight's performances ...

After last week's performances, Team Christina Aguilera and Team Blake Shelton both saw their numbers cut in half last night on The Voice.

Two moved on from each team. Two went home.

Meanwhile, Team Cee Lo Green and Team Adam Levine performed and will face the chopping block next week. It's quite confusing, we know.

So who's moving on to the elite eight and who's likely to join them after powerhouse performances this week? Let's break it down below ...

The Voice Judges Panel

Christina is crying. This is the toughest decision EVER. America voted to save Beverly McClellan, leaving Xtina to name the second survivor of the evening.

She adores everyone, but ultimately, Frenchie Davis moves on. Fitting that a pair of bald divas will be representing together (they're also the best singers).

Now for Team Blake. America saved Dia Frampton, while the country star cast his vote for Xenia, sending the two boys home in a bit of a surprise move.

Who will join Dia, Frenchie, Xenia and Bev in the final round? Teams Cee Lo and Adam laid it all on the line last night to make their case. Videos below ...

Season two American Idol castoff Frenchie Davis has found redemption on The Voice this spring, even if that's not a word she feels is appropriate.

Frenchie doesn’t like the word redemption because, she says, she has nothing to redeem herself for. But it's hard not to look at her story that way.

As an American Idol hopeful, she got the boot for having posed for sexy photos. That left a bad taste in her mouth, as she wasn't even voted off.

Last night, she showed millions of viewers what they missed out on, bringing down the house with David Guetta’s “When Love Takes Over” ...

“Some people might see it that way,” Davis says of her comeback story. “I personally don’t think I have anything to redeem myself from."

"But it’s a great chance to enlighten people who maybe weren't Frenchie enlightened before and share my gift with a whole part of the world that I’ve never been able to share it with. And, hey, Cee-Lo Green’s a fan now. Hello!”

Call it what you want, she is living the dream now.

For a show that's branded itself as the anti-American Idol, The Voice sure felt like American Idol last night, with eight finalists singing solo for votes.

There was even a girl from American Idol closing out the night!

Eight of the 16 finalists performed Tuesday, with the rest on tap next week. While the show has lost considerable steam since its premiere, due largely to its complicated format, these performances were strong.

Let's break them down!

Raquel Castro performed Ke$ha "Blow," a song notable mostly for its beat and its video, as Ke$ha cannot actually sing, channeling mentor Christina.

Mama Aguilera, along with the rest of the panel, loved it. America should do, especially coming from the youngest and smallest Voice cast member.

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 Blake: Sara Oromchi vs. Xenia

Two of the youngest contestants, and two of the shiest. They tried to overcome these obstacles with a rendition of “I’ll Stand By You,” and they did.

Well, mostly. If we're being honest, Blake seemed disappointed, as "both looked scared to death," and their performance was lacking in confidence.

With only one week of battle rounds to go, The Voice was ... well, it was totally overshadowed by both American Idol and Dancing With the Stars last night.

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:
