The Voice: Who Made It to the Finals? Season 2, Episode 19

Tonight is the night. Four will make it to The Voice finals and four will go home. The results show features performances from last year's four finalists — including an vocal performance from Cyndi Lauper that hurts my ears beyond description — but we're going to stick to the results. So which coaches put equal support behind both of their singers? And which played favorites? Let's see, shall we:

But first things first, my obligatory fast take on Christina's fashions: She's sporting a weird wraparound gold headband thing that actually looks really cute (it looks better than the tiara, amirite?), but there's too much makeup. Also, she appears to be wearing pants tonight, so there's that. Onward!

Team Christina
Christina has made for great TV all season because of her unpredictable and brutally honest comments, but when it comes to her final two singers, she very predictably splits her vote right down the middle and gives 50 points to Chris Mann and Lindsey Pavao. When the fan points are factored in, Chris edges out Lindsey 104 to 96. Lindsey starts tearing up on stage as she is embraced by Chris and then Christina. Girl keeps it classy, though, and thanks everyone involved with the show for the opportunity.

Team Adam
Adam went 60-40 in favor of Tony Lucca. Adam says that his connection to Tony is a little bit stronger than it is to Katrina Parker, but he says that both singers are equally strong. He just really wants to see his bromance with Tony through to the end. Counting the points from the fans, Katrina gets 92 and Tony takes 108. That's less than a 20-point difference, which means that had Adam not favored Tony, he would have gone home. What the heck, America? Is this because of Christina's constant criticism of Tony? Shield your ears, America! She's so biased! Either way, Tony is safe and moving onto the finals, so all is right with the world. I expect to see some cute footage of an Adam-Tony sleepover on next week's show.

Team Blake
It's a little harder to tell how Blake is going to disperse his points. He does a straight 50-50 split and says he wants everyone to know that there are no egos on the stage. It's up to America now. So who did America pick? Jermaine Paul, who wins by a landslide vote of 123 to 77. That's a pretty harsh birthday gift to Erin Willet, but this is definitely the right choice. Jermaine won't win, but he had a much stronger night than Erin.

Team Cee Lo
The tears start flowing from Jamar Rogers and Juliet Simms the minute they stand up to face the executioner. Cee Lo shocks everyone, including me, by giving 60 to Juliet and 40 to Jamar. Juliet's mouth drops and Cee Lo explains that America loves Jamar but he didn't connect to the song and the performance 100 percent. Whereas Juliet, he says, was "so obviously beautiful and striking and strong." I love Juliet, but if I were Cee Lo, I would have divided it 55-45. Counting in the fan points, Juliet and Jamar grab 121 and 79 points, respectively. Wow, it was clear that Juliet was a front-runner from the beginning, but I never thought that she and Jamar would be that far apart. Jamar is stone-cold silent after his cut and says a quick thank you before Cee Lo at least attempts to console him. Jamar doesn't seem to be having it and the show quickly cuts to the credits. Awkward! Jamar deserved a better farewell than that!

So what did you think of tonight's results? Which singer were you most sad to say goodbye to? Who do you think is going to win it all? Share your comments below!

Premise: Singers square off for a coveted recording contract in this reality talent contest from the producers of "Big Brother" and "Survivor." Four vocal coaches mentor the contestants in three distinct competition phases: the blind auditions (during which the coaches can't see a contestant and thereby judge them solely on their vocal talent); the battle phase (in which the contestants are advised and developed); and, lastly, the live-performance phase.
