'The Voice' Elimination Recap: Kim Yarbrough, Karla Davis, Tony Vincent And Erin Martin Eliminated From Cee Lo And Adam's Teams

"The Voice" elimination: Which four contestants went home?

Another four bite the dust. This week was the second round of live performances on "The Voice" and that meant saying goodbye to two contestants from Team Adam and two from Team Cee Lo.

After the remaining members of Team Christina performed "Domino" with Jessie J, the three contestants were revealed that America saved from Adam Levine's and Cee Lo's teams. For Team Adam, the lucky three were 19-year-old nursing student Mathai, former Mousketeer Tony Lucca (who Christina had it out with on Monday night) and bow tie-enthusiast Pip. And for Team Cee Lo, rocker Juliet Simms, hipster comeback kid Jamar Rogers and Boston heartthrob James Massone were saved by America's votes.

Then, the bottom three on each team had the opportunity to sing one last time for their coaches to prove that they should be the one their coach would save from elimination. (For those familiar with "RuPaul's Drag Race," it was basically like lip-syncing for your life, but with actual singing.)

On Team Adam, country artist Karla Davis and belters Kim Yarbrough and Katrina Parker were left to sing again. Yarbrough sang Jennifer Hudson's "Spotlight" and sounded much more like the contestant viewers met back in the blind auditions. Davis went back to her sweet spot with Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me," but she still didn't sound too strong. Parker opted for "Don't Speak" by No Doubt and really gave it her all.

The judges thought so too with Blake, Cee Lo and Christina agreeing that Katrina should stay. Adam told the three ladies on his team to look around at where they are and then, point blank, said he was saving Katrina. Sadly, it was time to say goodbye to Kim Yarbrough and Karla Davis.

On Team Cee Lo, Broadway rocker (and new dad) Tony Vincent, Hawaiian transport Cheesa and former model Erin Martin had to perform for Cee Lo to prove their worth in the competition. Tony Vincent was in his comfort zone with "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics, but sounded a bit off. Cheesa went with "All By Myself" by Celine Dion and certainly belted it out. Erin Martin -- and her clown collar and puffy shoulders -- gave her own twist to Elton John's "Your Song."

Adam said all three contestants were amazing and was "pissed off" it took them this long to sing their best. He said he'd save Cheesa, as did Christina and Blake, who said that Cheesa "knocked it out of the park." Cee Lo said his mind said Tony, but his heart said Cheesa and thus, she stayed.

Also worth noting, continuing her mean streak, Christina, when critiquing Tony said, "Right? That's your name? Tony?" Here's to hoping she brings less attitude next week.

What did you think of Kim Yarbrough, Karla Davis, Tony Vincent and Erin Martin going home? Has Christina gone too far? Tell us in the comments.

"The Voice" airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
