Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill React to The Voice Elimination

There was a simple and shocking fact lost amidst the the controversy of Adam Levine saying he hates the country:

Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill are no longer contestants on The Voice. They were surprisingly eliminated on Tuesday night's results show.

And while both women were upset over the outcome, they told E! News soon afterward that Levine may have been even more distressed.

"Adam was pretty bummed and very passionate about both of us," Hill said backstage. "He said to us, ‘You know, it's a game show. You deserve to both be here.'"

Hill certainly hoped to stick around longer, but she is trying to make the best of the situation.

"It was pretty crazy up there. It's like being in the Hunger Games; people are just like yelling out names," the singer laughed. "I feel like I had a great experience on the show. People got to see a taste of me, and being able to bring art and drama to the stage is just what I love."

Simmons echoes that positive sentiment: "This whole experience has just completely helped my soul deeply and helped me find myself even more."
