The tough decisions just keep coming on The Voice.

After Monday night – when coaches Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton let go talented contestants on their teams – the results of America's vote were revealed.

Keep reading to find out whom the voters saved, who performed a last-chance song and whom the judges decided to keep on their teams for the upcoming semifinals.

On Team Christina, Chris Mann earned the most votes, leaving Ashley De La Rosa and a tearful Lindsey Pavao to sing for their coach. Ashley performed "Yoü & I," while Lindsey tackled "Please Don't Go."



"I really love these two girls a lot. I really believe in you," Aguilera said before making her difficult decision. "You both are complete superstars." But Aguilera picked Lindsey, sending Ashley packing.

On Team Blake, Jermaine Paul was the lucky one with enough votes to move on in the competition. That left Erin Willet to sing "Proud Mary" and RaeLynn to perform "If I Die Young" in hopes of winning Shelton's favor.

"I love both of you and we have a bond for different reasons," the country super star said. "This is way rougher than I thought it was going to be ... "

As the credits rolled, host Carson Daly practically begged Shelton to make a decision – and he barely did before the end of the hour, saving Erin, sending RaeLynn home in tears.

Next week, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green's teams face off in what's sure to be another couple of difficult nights for the judges and contestants alike.
