You know how last season the coaches on "The Voice" were bellyaching about having to make their own team eliminations late in the competition? Well, this season they're griping about their teams' fates being entirely in the hands of the voters. They needn't worry. The voters did a fine job Tuesday night, sending home two singers who, though talented, for whatever reason failed to connect: 16-year-old Mohawk girl Michaela Paige of Team Blake and pop-singing Brooklyn waitress Adriana Louise from Team Christina.
Paige and Louise both took the news with dignity, shared teary sentiments about how fab their coaches were and got nice pats on the back from those coaches. Blake Shelton predicted that we'd soon see Paige's "big old Mohawk" walking across the stage at the Grammys. And Christina Aguilera promised we'd hear much more from Louise in the future. It was all very sweet.
That means the top 10 (in the order we learned about them) are …
Bryan Keith (Team Adam), Sylvia Yacoub (Team Christina), Nicholas David (Team CeeLo), Dez Duron (Team Christina), Trevin Hunte (Team CeeLo), Cassadee Pope (Team Blake), Terry McDermott (Team Blake), Amanda Brown (Team Adam), Cody Belew (Team CeeLo) and Melanie Martinez (Team Adam).
