'The Voice' Recap: The First 4 Singers Are Eliminated

Tue, April 3, 2012 10:58pm EST by 3 Comments

America’s votes were revealed in this season’s first result show April 3. Was the right person sent home?

It was an intense night on The Voice as Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton each had to save one person from their team’s bottom three, and the contestants that weren’t saved by America had to sing for their lives — and a spot in the top four.

First up was Team Blake. The top six joined Blake during an interview for a country music radio show, where Blake announced they would all take part in an acoustic concert for fans as a treat. We also found out who America saved, and it was no surprise when Carson Daly announced that Erin Willet, Jermaine Paul, and Raelynn all were safe.

Naia Kete sang Beyonce to keep herself in the competition, while Charlotte Sometimes let her emotions get the best of her during a performance of the overly done “Iris.” Jordis Unga was also emotional during her song, but managed to keep control and proved the obvious choice for saving. The coaches all seemed to go in that direction, and that’s exactly what Blake did.

We then watched as Christina took her team to The Tonight Show to show them what it’s self-promotion in the entertainment industry is really like. From her team, America decided to save Jesse Campbell, Lindsey Pavao, and Chris Mann.

Ashley De La Rosa came out powerful and fierce in her “sing for your life performance,” as did Sera Hill. And while Moses Jones proved he could sing — and not just rap — with his performance of The Script‘s “Breakeven,” it just wasn’t strong enough.

Cee Lo Green chose Sera, but Adam Levine and Blake said Ashley was the best choice, making the decision very difficult for Christina. But clearly she was impressed by Ashley’s fierceness, because ultimately she saved her.

Four contestants now remain on each of the judges’ teams, and next week, Adam and Cee Lo’s teams will go head to head for spots in the top four.

Do you think the right contestants were saved by the coaches?
