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?
