'The Voice' Eliminations, Round 2: Four More Finalists Say Goodbye

Were the right contestants cut (and saved) this week? Read our full recap & give us your thoughts!

The second round of eliminations took place April 10 on The Voice, and with the performances being very disappointing the night before, the contestants really stepped it up to prove why they were in the competition to begin with — even if it was a bit late.

Jessie J started the night as the guest performer, eventually joined by Christina Aguilera‘s team, singing her hit “Domino.”

And then came the results: Mathai, Tony Lucca, and Pip were all saved by America on Adam Levine‘s team. This left Kim Yarbrough, Karla Davis and Katrina Parker to sing for their lives. Kim took the stage first, but her attempt was pretty weak. Karla sang next, but fell even farther than Kim. Before Katrina sang her No Doubt cover, you had to know Adam would save her.

Over on Cee Lo Green‘s team, James Massone, Jamar Rogers and Juliet Simms were all saved by America. (No surprises there!) This meant Cheesa, Tony Vincent, and Erin Martin would have to sing for the last spot on Cee Lo’s team.

Tony sang another theatrical song, “Sweet Dreams,” appearing more like a goth rocker than a pop star, but definitely did well. Cheesa also came out strong, used her powerhouse voice to show why she still needs to be in the competition. Erin was the last to go and gave the previous two a run for their money, but who did Cee-Lo choose? After the other coaches picked Cheesa, Cee Lo agreed.

16 contestants now remain in the competition. Next week, Christina and Blake Shelton‘s final four contestants will battle it out in part one of the quarter finals.

What did you think of the second elimination round, HollywoodLifers? Did Tony, Erin, Kim and Karla deserve to go?

I have seen very little real marketable talent on this show. Compared to the WOW prefromances on American Idol this show’s contestants are very poor. And Cee-Low did no favors for Erin. She has a wonderful strange voice and needed the right song. Cee Low brought her out in a horrible “Walk Like An Egyptian” preformance dressed to lose. I was glad she went but Cee Low could have done so much better for her. The rest of the contestants are not great talents. I don’t know what the judges are hearing but at home I am hearing plain Jane choices of songs and voices. Hope this show is not long on the air. I would buy a CD by any of these final contestants.

There is so much talent walking around. It is amazing to me. Erin is no doubt pretty and she relies on her looks just a little too much. I couldn’t believe it when she won the last elimination. She is unique, but her voice just isn’t that good. Now her true character is right out there for the world to see as she blames Cee for her elimination not the fact that her voice is extremely limited. Some of the sportsmanship and comments from the contestants is disappointing. I believe that now, with the public voting,there will be a much more accurate result.peace
