After the second part of The Voice's quarter-final round, Team Cee Lo and Adam lost a contestant each. However, no-one's safe - tonight, the remaining three finalists from each group will face the public vote, and one of them will be going home while the rest will make it safely through to next week's semi-finals round.

Who will the public choose to move forward and who will be sent home? Stay with Digital Spy live from 8/7c to find out!


22:00Well, that's it - next week, it's on to the semi-finals. Hasn't it felt like this show has been on forever? Can we just get on with it already? Well, yes, we can - next Monday (April 30) at 8/7c. Don't forget to join us!

21:59Right, it's time to get rid of somebody here - but who will Cee Lo pick? (Pretend you don't know/care). Everyone wants Juliet to stay - I don't, but does he? Yep. Cheesa's out and we're out of time, too!

21:53Blake admits that he wasn't initially a believer but he now loves Juliet as a performer, which he believes is a testament to how original and consistent she is. Uh, okay. Christina is a fan of her voice, but thinks that the softer voice she's used in the past few songs isn't very good or comfortable. She's waiting for Juliet to do another 'Roxanne'-caliber performance.

21:51In a really bizarre final song choice, Juliet Simms is singing Natalie Imbruglia's 'Torn'. I'm so freaked out by this chick - what is her deal? She's nothing at all like she was when she came on the show. She's using some bizarre affectation on her voice, she's dressed like a wood nymph/faerie and is just so bizarre.

Of course, Juliet will be the one staying, but what the hell? She even tries to rally the crowd with a hearty "Come on!" at one point, as if she's rocking out... to Natalie Imbruglia. Make it stop. I can barely see the screen to type this since that's how hard I'm involuntarily squinting at this performance.

21:49Blake says that it's hard not to get excited when she performs, though he noticed a little bit of flatness throughout. Still, she's so powerful and dynamic that it erases her imperfections, according to him. Christina agrees, applauding her for doing such a good time throughout the show. Still, it seems pretty clear that Christina thinks Cheesa's a goner. Adam agrees with the other two. We all know she's outta here. End of.

21:47Now it's time for Team Cee Lo - Cheesa's up to sing Kelly Clarkson's 'Already Gone'. She sounds okay, but can we just cut out the bullcrap here and admit that Cheesa's going home tonight? "Someone's gotta go", is right!

21:45Christina Milian is hanging out in the Boring Lounge - er, sorry, the Sprint Lounge with some of the contestants. My eyes tend to glaze over during these parts, as they're generally utter nonsense. Christina's hair looks nice, though!

21:40Well, it's the moment of truth! Either Mathai or Katrina has to go home. Both Blake and Christina would save Katrina, but Cee Lo likes Mathai. However, it's Adam's decision and he chooses... jeez. He's really dragging it out here.

After a good five minutes of rambling about how difficult it is and how they could both win and blah blah blah, he chooses to keep Katrina, meaning Mathai's out.

21:29Blake thinks that the audience speaks for itself - she's the best singer on Adam's team. "That was amazing!" he adds. Christina "100% agrees" with Blake and thinks that the vote came down to song choice. However, she applauds her for picking great songs for herself and choosing what she's comfortable with. She adds that she's most excited to hear original material from Katrina. Cee Lo is also full of praise and commends her for a passionate performance.

21:27Katrina's up next, taking on Pink's 'Perfect' - another song that seems to be in your face every five seconds on these singing competitions. Something tells me she's going to be the one staying - she's continuously performing and is even looking more and more like a star every week! The backing guitar is a bit loud, however, and sorta verging on drowning her out, but she's making it work. Good for her!

21:25Blake says that it's hard not to love Mathai since she's so cute, and he's glad to see her "embracing her hillbilly side" in doing a country song. (That would explain why I don't know it.) Christina is also happy that she got to show her more aggressive side but could tell how nervous she was. Cee Lo agrees, though he also appreciates how she was able to convey her "need to sing" and applauds her for showing charm and charisma at the same time.

21:23Mathai is up singing for her life first - she's singing 'Cowboy Casanova'. I don't know this song, and I don't necessarily think it's the best choice for her given how important this performance is. Katrina just might have her beat.

21:16Yep, I was right! Jamar is through, the others have to sing. Not sure what's going on with Jamar's hair, by the way...

21:14Now, Team Cee Lo is going to get some results. I predict Jamar will get the autosave, and it'll be Cheesa and Juliet singing for the save (meaning Cheesa is outta here). Am I right?

21:14America has chosen to save Tony Lucca - that's not surprising, of course, but it does mean that Mathai and Katrina will have to face off. I hope Mathai sings 'Ordinary People' again. I mean, she's no Jaz Ellington (shout out to The Voice UK!), but it was quite good.

21:11Team Adam are out on the stage and it's time to find out who's in the bottom tonight. It's either Katrina Parker, Mathai or Tony Lucca headed home - pretty hard to call, actually.

21:05Not wasting any time, Florence is performing first - singing 'No Light, No Light'. A couple of years back, I saw her in this tiny club in the West Village and it was the closest thing to a religious experience I've ever had, musically speaking. Now she's playing these super massive venues, which is sort of a turn off for me, but go see her! She's incredible!

21:01In case you forgot what happened last night, you're in luck, because we're going to get a recap!

21:00Oh, we're starting! Admittedly, I got a little caught up with the end of The Biggest Loser that was on just before this. That show is so nuts, right? I don't watch it, really, but it always bugs me out when they show the before and after pictures.

Anyway, it's time for The Voice! Two people are going home! Florence + the Machine are performing! I'm using exclamation points!
