Before Tessanne Chin was named The Voice Season 5 winner, Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera joined forces to perform the former's hit "Do What U Want."

The Voice results and Tessanne's coronation were the main event, but just a tiny portion star-studded finale that saw these two stars duet for the first time.

Watch the magnificence that is Xtina and Gaga's teaming up below ...

Things started out innocuous enough, as it appeared that the Mother Monster was taking to the NBC show's stage to perform her latest single solo.

Perhaps she read the R. Kelly sexual assault allegations published this week and showed her normal, nasty collaborator on "Do What U Want" the door?

It's not clear. But she also wasn't going it alone. A magical clam shell revealed a dueling diva, Christina Aguilera, ready to join in on the performance.

Theatrical, over-the-top and pretty much perfect if you ask us. Someone's got to make this a regular thing when the hit show returns for Season 6.

Here's the crowning moment for Tessanne Chin that ended the night:

The Voice is down to its final three singers, and all three made their case last night as they laid their hearts, souls and (yes) voices on the line for votes.

Tessanne Chin, Will Champlin and Jacquie Lee sang their blind audition song, a duet with their coach and finally a personal selection on Monday.

At stage? A Universal Music Group recording contract and The Voice title. How did they do? Did anyone outshine the others? Let's take a look ...

Tessanne Chin owned the stage with her duet of "Let It Be" with her coach Adam Levine, then nailed Whitney Houston's classic "I Have Nothing."

"I know in my mind and in my heart you are the winner of this show," Levine blurted out after the "world-class" rendition. Do you agree with him?

Will Champlin went from Team Adam to Christina, back to Adam. Coach Levine shared his "profound respect" for the extremely talented musician.

He performed "Tiny Dancer" alongside the Sexiest Man Alive, then knocked it out of the park with Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You."

Jacquie Lee doesn't quit. Week after week the Team Christina singer has put a smile on her coach's face, and did it yet again last night and then some.

To hold your own against/with one of the best of all time is no small feat, but Lee did it with Aguilera in a jaw-dropping performance of "We Remain."

The two powerhouses connected, and later she wowed the crowd solo with the final, awe-inspiring performance of the night with "And I'm Telling You."

With such an evenly matched final three, the votes could go either way. The Season Five winner will be crowned soon enough, and they will be deserving.

Who do you think should win The Voice?

Christina Aguilera and Flo Rida teamed up for a performance of their new song "How I Feel" to kick off the first live show of The Voice Season 5 Monday night.

Regardless of how she feels, she looks amazing. The star's weight loss and svelte body were on display in a sheer body suit, and wow, fans. Just wow.

Before watching Team Adam and Team Blake go for broke (see The Voice recap) Aguilera reigned in a low-cut black blazer, nude tights and black top hat.

Midway through the song, Xtina removed her blazer to reveal she was wearing an ultra-sexy, see-through suit that exposed a black bra and tiny shorts.

In a word, nice.

Looking better than ever, Aguilera strutted across the stage while belting out her hit. Tonight, her team takes the stage, as does Cee Lo's. No pressure, peeps.

With Ed Sheeran, Ryan Tedder, Miguel and Cher joining in as guest mentors, who would emerge victorious and move on? Who would head home crushed?

Let's break down the final duels of the fall below ...

Olivia Henken vs. Stephanie Anne Johnson (Team Christina): “Done”

The Band Perry’s wordy track proved a challenge, but the two brought their best to this terrific battle, resulting in a split decision among the judges.

Green and Levine loved Johnson’s grit, while Shelton opted for Henken for powering the country song. Aguilera awarded Henken for her consistency.

Cee Lo them quickly swooped in and stole her rival.

The battle rounds continued on Season 5 of The Voice last night, and we were treated to some impressive clashes as the singers fought for survival.

Which aspiring star ended up heading home while others advanced to sing another week? And who was granted a last-second stay via the steal?

Let's break down all six battles from Monday night below!

Josh Logan vs. Michael Lynch (Team Christina): “Harder To Breathe” by Maroon 5

Somehow, neither of them really knew the words to Adam's hit and Christina had them a little nervous ... both in that dress and with her vocal talents.

She tried to get them both amped up, but when it came time for the battle, Michael was more so. However, it was Josh who showed superior vocal control.

WINNER: Josh

The Voice featured three more full head-to-head performances Tuesday in a condensed, hour-long version of Monday night's Battle Round premiere.

While none quite compared to the epic battle between Jacquie Lee and Briana Cuoco on Monday, some of the singers did a pretty decent job.

Who moved on? Who's headed home? Who was stolen? With just 12 more battles and four steals left to go, come along for The Voice recap!

Jacob Poole vs. Matthew Schuler (Team Christina), "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark"

Matthew was the clear favorite going in, and Jacob more than held his own, with the guys just giving it their all and turning in the night's top effort

But the favorite ended up triumphing in the end. "I just thank you for taking in everything I had to give," Coach Christina tells them, and picks Matthew.

The Voice can be an emotional rollercoaster. Half the singers picked up by a coach after the blind auditions can be dispatched immediately in the battles.

Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green pair the contestants up for sudden-death duets. One wins, one goes home. Boom.

Unless, that is, one of the other coaches presses the button to “steal” a singer cast off from other rosters. That great new twist proved vital last night.

Let's break down the first battle rounds of The Voice Season 5!

Briana Cuoco vs. Jacquie Lee: “House of the Rising Sun” (Team Christina)

The female rockers were assigned to put their stamp on this classic, and while Kaley Cuoco’s sister stood out at first, the high schooler took command.

Aguilera opted for Lee, at which point Green and Shelton immediately pushed their buttons to make the steal. Briana Cuoco joined Team Blake.

Night five of The Voice blind auditions showed us that with only eight spots left to fill before we move on, the competition was more intense than ever!

Who blew away Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton last night and earned their tickets to Season Five's Battle Rounds?

Let's take a look at the latest group of contenders ...

Adam Levine only had two spots on his team, and returning contestant Matt Cermanski, singing John Hiatt‘s ”Have a Little Faith in Me,” claimed the first.

“He was mine from the first note,” Adam said.

Wedding singer Grey (just one fame) who belted a powerful rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s “Catch My Breath,” got three coaches to turn, but picked Adam.

Night four of The Voice blind auditions proved that sometimes, the second time is the charm, while even a gifted talent doesn't guarantee a spot on NBC.

Who blew away Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton last night after failing to turn a single chair one season ago?

Who else landed spots with the fab four of The Voice? Here's a look at the singers who successfully gained entry into the next round last night ...

James Irwin didn't do much for the coaches last season. This time, with is performance of the R.E.M. classic “Losing My Religion,” it was a different story.

Returning with newfound confidence and much more stage presence, Irwin had his pick of coaches, but went with the only one to point out weaknesses: Adam.

The Voice is back for a second week of blind auditions, with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine vying for the top talent.

There was no shortage of it last night, and with a show that seems to feature momentum changes and new fan favorites with each song, it’s anyone’s game.

Let's break down last night's blind audition contestants, shall we?

Preston Pohl, who  grew up performing in a Christian rock band until his mentor passed away, brought charisma and funk to MGMT’s “Electric Feel."

His originality and creativity really made the night, as the coaches swooned over him. Even Christina, who did not turn around, soon wished she had.

Adam begged and pleaded with the singer and ultimately his passion won out over the other two coaches / salesmen as Preston Pohl joined his team.
