by at . Comments

The Voice eliminated four performers between Team Shakira and Team Adam last night, while six moved on to the top 12. Who fell into which group?

Let's break down the performances by team and find out ...

Kristen Merlin of Team Shakira took on Carrie Underwood’s “Two Black Cadillacs” and absolutely killed it. Blake Shelton called it "flawless" ... high praise.

Deja Hall, 16, belted out Jordin Sparks’ “Battlefield” with such ease that Usher said she almost sang above the track and Shakira was proud of her confidence.

Tess Boyer, the only singer to have been coached by three coaches, put forth a rendition of “Human” by Christina Perri that was hauntingly beautiful.

Patrick Thomson, was up next with his take on Ray LaMontagne’s classic “Trouble.” He gave a strong and soulful performance that impressed the coaches.

Dani Moz put a new twist on Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory,” giving the coaches goosebumps and bringing at least one of them to tears. But would it be enough?

First up for Team Adam was Delvin Choice, whose version of “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green marked a nice take on a classic we all know and love.

Jake Barker was up next and by using one of Adam's own songs, "She Will Be Loved," showed his confidence. Adam praised his bravery and for good reason.

Kat Perkins followed it up and took on Journey’s classic “Open Arms,” with Adam commending her effort and saying there hasn't been a better performance so far.

Morgan Wallen returned to his country crooning roots on Florida Georgia Line’s “Stay,” leading Adam to say, “I was unaware of how good you were."

Web sensation Christina Grimmie was the last performer, and her rendition of “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz was the perfect way to close out the show.

So who got the boot? Drum roll ...

For Shakira, Patrick and Deja.

For Adam, Jake and Morgan.

Tonight, Team Usher sings for their lives. What do you think of Monday's eliminated contestants? Did Shakira and Adam make the right decisions? Sound off!
