Team Sexy continued Tuesday – but this week it was a close one.
The Voice results show had a little bit of everything this week: a live performance from an expectant Kelly Clarkson, coaches Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera sporting some funky hats, and nail-biting drama, courtesy of the Twitter instant save, which determined who would be sent home.
The show kicked off with a holiday performance of "Underneath the Christmas Tree" by a still-queasy Clarkson, who didn't move around much onstage, and told host Carson Daly, "I've felt better. I'm looking forward to the second trimester."

It's one thing to perform one of your coach's career-defining songs; it's yet another to do it powerfully and earn her full blessing.
That's what New Jersey teen Jacquie Lee did Monday night on The Voice when she tackled Christina Aguilera's coming-of-age ballad "The Voice Within" with a vocal range rivaling her own coach, who was feeling their connection.
"I do find so many similarities in you, not only as a vocalist but as a person," a beaming Aguilera told Lee. "It's a struggle to find yourself, so young, in this business … I wrote this song when I was 20, 21, and it was a time in my life when you're being pushed and pulled in so many directions."

Their last gig went so well, they're returning for an encore.
Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, who jokingly took some pot shots at one another as cohosts of the Academy of Country Music Awards this past April, will return as cohosts for the 2014 show.
"Congratulations, buddy, you won entertainer of the year in your first – and last – year of cohosting the ACM Awards," Shelton told Bryan after the latter's big win at the 2013 show.

Adam Levine's winning streak continues.
For the third week in a row, The Voice coach – and PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive – not only kept his team of three intact, but avoided the dreaded bottom three, which this week featured one contestant representing each of his fellow coaches.
Team Adam's Tessanne Chin, 28, Will Champlin, 30, and James Wolpert, 22, were all saved, along with Jacquie Lee, 16, of Team Christina Aguilera and Cole Vosbury, 22, of Team Blake Shelton.

He's the Sexiest Coach Alive – and a victorious one, too.
It was a pretty spectacular night for Voice coach Adam Levine, who was not only revealed as PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive on the show by host Carson Daly, but managed to keep all three of his teammates out of the bottom three during Tuesday night's live elimination show.
Tessanne Chin, 28, James Wolpert, 22, and Will Champlin, 30, all advanced to the Top 8, making Levine, 34, the only coach to have three singers still in the competition.
Christina Aguilera was the only other coach who avoided the bottom three, as she saw 16-year powerhouse Jacquie Lee and serial showstopper Matthew Schuler, who turns 21 Wednesday, advance to next week's live performance show.

Matthew Schuler, who blew away the judges on The Voice last week with his impassioned version of "Hallelujah," did not disappoint again on Monday night's show, taking on the Labrinth (featuring Emeli Sandé) love ballad, "See Beneath Your Beautiful," as a song of hope for future romance, noting he was single but keeping his eyes open for a wife.
By the time Schuler finished, the crowd would not stop cheering, prompting the minister's son to lower his head and seem near tears. "Thank you. That's something else," the 20-year-old singer from Yardley, Pa., said humbly, barely heard over the noisy appreciation.
His excited coach Christina Aguilera admitted that she, too, was "blown away," adding, "Tonight you did show a different side of yourself, wanting this to be dedicated to your future love, your future wife."

For the past four months, Miranda Lambert has been working hard to make sure she gave herself a terrific 30th birthday present: a hot new figure!
The country star, who hit the milestone on Nov. 10, overhauled her diet and worked with a trainer to drop a dress size.
"People think I lost more, but I'm short," she recently told PEOPLE backstage at the CMA Awards. "I'm only 5'4" so when I gain, I gain everywhere, and when I lose, I lose everywhere."

Twitter took center stage on The Voice's live results show on Tuesday when, for the first time ever, viewers Tweeted during the final minutes of the show to instantly save one artist in the Top 12 from elimination.
During the show, host Carson Daly slowly revealed the nine artists who would automatically become part of the Top 10. Eventually, only the bottom three remained on stage: glam rocker Kat Robichaud and Air Force vet Jonny Gray of Team Cee Lo Green, and New Hampshire vocalist Josh Logan of Team Christina Aguilera.
That's when the "instant save" kicked in. To cast their votes, Voice viewers were asked to Tweet the name of their favorite artist, along with the hashtag #voicesave.
So who went home and who stayed?
