The Voice Recap: The Final Eight Perform

April 30, 2012 08:07 PM by Shayla Perry

Tonight on NBC‘s The Voice, the final eight artists from all four teams take to the stage, performing for a chance to make it to the finale, and everyone’s bringin’ their A-game! Get all the highlights after the jump!

It’s getting down to the wire!

For the first time, the members of Teams Adam, Blake, Cee Lo and Christina all perform, and the stakes couldn’t be any higher!

Not only is each artist vying for votes from viewers, but the coaches’ scores will also be tallied to determine who’s going home at the end of tomorrow’s Results Show, and who’s moving on to compete in the finale.

The first performance of the night is from Team Adam’s Tony Lucca. After killing Britney Spears‘ “Hit Me Baby One More Time,” the former Mouseketeer is taking on “How Ya Like Me Now,” hoping to build on his success.

It’s a definite break from what he’s done on the show thus far, and we’re liking the bolder Tony Lucca — so is Blake Shelton.

Following Tony is Team Blake’s Erin Willett, singing “Without You.” It’s an emotional performance for Erin, who lost her father during the Battle Round of the competition, but will it be enough to beat her teammate Jermaine Paul?

Next, Chris Mann of Team Christina is finally doing some opera again with “Ave Maria,” bringing Cee Lo Green to tears and his coach out of her chair to give him a hug on-stage. Um…Where are her pants? (Seriously, Christina…it’s a family show.)

The artists are definitely bringin’ it tonight!

Jamar Rogers of Team Cee Lo is doing his own rendition of “If You Don’t Know Me By Now.” It’s another stellar one from Jamar. No surprises there at all.

In a Voice first, Teams Adam and Cee Lo join together for an amazing performance. Okay, can they all win?

Next up, Jermaine Paul with “Open Arms.” As Christina says, “he murdered” the song — in a good way. According to Adam, as of tonight, Jermaine is no longer a background vocalist, but Blake tells his fellow coach that he got one thing wrong… A few weeks ago when Adam told his team that Jesse Campbell was the one to beat, Shelton says that he should’ve been talking about Jermaine all along.

Katrina Parker of Team Adam is taking on “Killing Me Softly.” Again, Christina slams Adam’s work as a coach while complimenting Katrina, who has quickly become a favorite in the competition, and begs him to consider giving Parker more points than Tony, even if he’s the obvious choice for him.

After a performance from Papa Bear himself, Blake Shelton, Lindsey Pavao sings “Skinny Love,” reminding us all of why we are fans of hers to begin with. Great strategy by Christina (still with no pants).

Teams Blake and Christina get together for a joint performance before Juliet Simms takes to the stage with “This Is A Man’s World.”

It’s definitely Juliet’s world, and after this one, all of the coaches are thinking that maybe she’s the one to beat.

What did you think of tonight’s show? Which performance was your favorite? What artists have your vote?

    What’s up with Christina & Tony Lucca? She has been SO negative about him all season. If she gives him ANY kind of compliment it’s like “well that was a nice performance”…then last night she goes so far as to tell Adam to consider Katrina INSTEAD of Tony…hey if you like Katrina ….fine…but a judge should NEVER tell another judge who THEY should be considering keeping & who they are dropping. I’m beginning to think Christina is a spoiled brat who thinks she’s the greatest thing to ever come along & can’t stand anybody else….especially someone from her own past….being as successful as she is…it’s very petty & small of her. I am disappointed cause i was a big fan of hers, but this show has brought out the worst in her. Maybe she’s ashamed of her “Mouseketeer” past, but she shouldn’t be. Hell if it weren’t for that show, she’d never be where she is to today!!!

    Without a doubt that Tony Lucca is a good performer but the Voice belong to Katrina. Xtina
    was right that Adam should pay more attention to Katrina becuase of her uniqque voice. As a recording artist Katrina’s voice can sell records, with a the right choice of songs, Katrina
    can be a big recording artist……I follow the
    series and have learn to like Katrina so much.

    The Voice needs to let voters decide who stays and who goes in later rounds.

    I noticed after the episode with the special judges choice elimination, the ratings took a hit.
    Same thing with American Idol and Dancing with the Stars.
    What does everyone else think?
