The Voice Recap: On to the Elite Eight!

by at .

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 ...

Frenchie Davis sang Madonna’s “Like a Prayer,” sounding part gospel, part nightclub. Basically, a nice homage to the original from the diva.

Nakia sang a version of Adam Lambert’s “Whataya Want From Me.” Adam apparently did not know what that song was somehow. Oye.

Dia Frampton did R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion.” Great song, and a strong effort if you ask us. Will it be enough to move on to the finals?

Adam had Casey Weston sing “I Will Always Love You,” written by Dolly Parton and made really famous by Whitney Houston. Thoughts?

Beverly McClellan briefly went behind the piano to sing “The Thrill Is Gone,” but it was her voice, fittingly, that truly shined throughout.

Javier sang a Coldplay tune, “Fix You.” Not a lot to fix about this, especially with the decision to ditch the hat. Bonus points there, man.

Xenia performed “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” by The Script. Will she be moving on to The Voice finals after this moving effort? (Sorry.)

Vicci closed out Tuesday night with “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence + The Machine. A great way to end a solid string of performances.

Who do you think was the best? The worst? Who should comprise the final four when the votes are tallied? Comment below!

Christina Aguilera Quotes

It's kind of hilarious! I've never fit into an E-cup before. I look at my husband and go, 'Guess what size this bra is?' And when I tell him, he's just amazed. We keep the tags that prove it, to look back for memory's sake!

Oh, my God, candy! I had a huge craving for candy toward the end of the pregnancy, from Starbursts to Skittles. I actually took a picture of myself with my big belly in a little lingerie top, surrounded by bowls of the candy I like
