'The Voice' Recap: Votes and Victories
Ashley De La Rosa and RaeLynn are sent packing from the quarterfinals
The results show began with Christina Aguilera basically having to answer for dumping Jesse Campbell the night before. "I'm no stranger to controversy," the fighter declared, acknowledging message boards, Twitter, and the like. "I do have a strategy."
And after a pointless "Team Blake" performance (if you can call it that) with UK band The Wanted, we got to the results. Christina's crew was up first and, curiously (at least for me), Chris Mann gets to get all Groban for another week. Jermaine Paul was the victor -- according to America -- in the Shelton fold.
Thus, the "pick me" performances began, first with Ashley De La Rosa nervously rocking Gaga's "You and I." Then Lindsay Pavao delivered an emotional "Please Don't Go," getting teary-eyed in the end, and taking Xtina with her. Someday a producer will write the words "basket case" on a Post-It when Pavao is cutting a record in his studio. But, hey, it worked. Christina saved her.
Erin Willett kicked the Adele to the curb for a rousing "Proud Mary" by the time the dust settled and the Bieber fever subsided (he popped out to debut a clip of new video for his latest single "Boyfriend"). Then it was RaeLynn with the Band Perry's "If I Die Young," a bit too safe, if you ask me -- and I'm a RaeLynn fan. So is Blake. But, as the credits rolled and RaeLynn banged into Willett and looked as if she'd seen a ghost, it became abundantly clear ... neither of us just so happened to be tonight.

self..... I would like to see you sing,and act...............
Christina Aguilera is sooooo Amazing! she is wonderful, talented, super nice, a real fighter and God so Beautiful. We love you Xtina, you rock u are the Best
I think RaeLynn got robbed because it looked like Blake may have been afraid to pick her because he really wanted to but there may have been inside pressures from the show to not show the "favoritism" towards his "country cutie" and also to not discriminate against the "larger" one next to her.
Not to worry because we all know which of those 2 will have the sky rocket career.
RaeLynn will be touring with Miranda and Blake and signed by their record label.
The other one will simply disappear.
Well I GIVE UP! The rich are taking everything they can and no one seems to question how they are doing it. I KNOW! Do you want to see how they are getting a ton of cash for their stock budgets? Google the term "FAST STOCK BUDGET" and go to the first site or right to the site with the same name. They have a penny stock page that shows what the rich don't want you to see. If you are tired of being poor and want in on the action, then this is a must see. Be prepared to see other half lives
rating and demographics. Think about this, for the first time they let the judges kick off the singers instead of America, why? Because they can get rid of Jesse who America would not have voted off,without him going the distance and exposing that the contest is rigged. Christina,as many has said, does not really have an ear for good talent
For those of you who think "The Voice" is purely for voice?
You may want to take a look at your country music singers and you will know that it is as much "The Look" as it is "The Voice".
Get a clue about what people want to see.
Nobody wants to see a Susan Boyle up there "singin country" anymore!
Oooooohhhh I got it the perfect gig for Christina next year instead of her being a judge on "The Voice" she can be a judge or a contestant on "Ru Paul's Drag Race" and if they don't want her then she can be the new spokeswoman star for "Park's Pork Sausages" Moooom more pork sausages pleeeassseee
