Unlike its nemesis on Fox, there's no judging controversy on The Voice. At least not yet.

Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green will all return for the competition's second season.

The Voice Judges Panel

"Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of The Voice this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning," Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President of NBC, said in a statement. "We look forward to building season two and making The Voice an even greater experience for fans."

The NBC hit crowned Javier Colon as its first champion this week and will return in January.

The final four contestants on The Voice took to the stage a total of eight times last night.

We were treated to one original song by Dia, Javier, Beverly and Vicci; along with one duet with their Coach. The praise flowed all night from the judges, but viewers will get the final say.

Did Dia's hip version of "I Won't Back Down" win you over? Or were you instead moved to tears by Beverly and Christina teaming up on a version of "Beautiful?"

Check out all the performances below and don't take too long trying to determine which was best. The winner will be crowned tonight!

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 ...

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 ...

First Tracy Morgan. Now Cee Lo Green?!

Not exactly, but The Voice coach is under considerable fire after a Tweet he wrote to a music critic, Andrea Swensson, following his June 16 show.

Swensson termed Cee Lo's concert "lackluster" and "gross," which the singer didn't really appreciate. He struck back at her with this tweet:

"I respect your criticism, but be fair! People enjoyed last night! I'm guessing you're gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well f--k you!"

Who? Me? Cee Lo? Homophobic?

Yeah. Probably not the best word choice. The "F--k You" singer attempted an apology on Twitter ... but it's more of a long-winded explanation.

He also seems confused as to what he's even apologizing for:

"Apologies gay community! What was homophobic about that? I was guessing he [was] gay which is fine but its nice to [know] what u think," he wrote.

He deleted it shortly after. Then he issued a longer comment:

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:

Cee Lo Green showed off her versatility in Las Vegas last night.

The artist gave us a medley of hits at the Billboard Music Awards, covering snippets from “Crazy,” “Bright Lights Big City” and “Forget You.” His piano and chair also flew around during the fun performance.

Among other performances at the ceremony:

Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are more than just co-judges. They have also been co-workers.

Two of the four panelists on The Voice teamed up awhile ago on "Nasty," a track that is first making its way around the Internet now.

“We did a song together about a few years ago," Green said on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week. "It actually was supposed to make the Burlesque soundtrack, but it didn’t make it. But I’ve been seeing people tweet about it lately so I think they’re going to release it."

Give the single a listen now and sound off: What do you think?
