Were any teams completely wiped out of the competition? Will the Top 5 feature only male singers? Did Taylor John Williams really describe his style as "Amish hipster?"
These questions and many more were answered on The Voice Tuesday night during an action-packed live elimination show that featured half of the Top 8 at risk of going home.
Just one week before the semifinals begin, host Carson Daly revealed the four artists who would automatically advance.

The Voice's Top 8 contestants brought plenty of emotion to Monday night's live show – and had the judges feeling it, too.
With competition fierce and three artists set for a tough elimination Tuesday, the remaining singers raised the bar and gave prospective fans a sharper window into what they'd look and sound like as future stars.

Not even Taylor Swift could take away from the real drama on The Voice Tuesday.
The megastar – and Voice Season 7 special advisor – delivered a fierce performance of her latest hit, "Blank Space," during the live elimination show, but even she couldn't overshadow the big question of the evening: Which two artists were going home?
Viewers got their answer at the end of the show, but not before the bottom three artists in the Top 10 performed one final do-or-die song to win this week's Twitter instant save and the final spot in the Top 8 heading into next week.

The Voice instant save is back – and made for a drama-filled live elimination show Tuesday as three artists fought for the final spot in the Top 10.
Just one night after the remaining 12 artists delivered a string of well-received performances, the artists once again stood onstage, although this time it was to learn their fates.
Host Carson Daly announced the artists who were safe throughout the first two-thirds of the show, until it finally became clear that only Team Adam Levine – who was enjoying his last evening as PEOPLE's reigning Sexiest Man Alive – would be spared potential elimination.

It was a night of triumph and heartbreak on The Voice Wednesday, as 12 artists moved ahead and eight artists said goodbye during the first live elimination show of the seventh season.
America's votes saved the two top vote-getters on each team of five singers, which forced each of the four coaches to save just one of their three remaining artists.
The hour-long show moved along briskly and put Team Blake Shelton in the hot seat first.

Two weeks ago, scores of Voice viewers thought coach Pharrell Williams made a questionable choice when he shockingly decided to keep Elyjuh René over the highly praised Ricky Manning in the knockout rounds.
But on the second night of the live playoffs on Tuesday, the seeming wisdom of Williams's selection shone through when the California-based singer, 18, delivered an emotional rendition of "Latch" that had all four coaches on their feet.
"I can't believe what I just saw," gushed Adam Levine, whose team performed the previous night alongside Blake Shelton's five remaining artists. "Precisely perfect, soulful ... Pharrell has one of the strongest teams, and you just became the front-runner on one of the strongest teams."

The four teams on The Voice were finalized Monday. And thanks to a last-minute save by Blake Shelton, one Southern rocker – looking "hotter than ever" – could make a big splash when the live rounds kick off next week.
Craig Wayne Boyd, the charismatic Mesquite, Texas, native, heeded mentor Taylor Swift's advice to "take us to church," commanding the stage with the Marshall Tucker Band's classic heartbreaker "Can't You See" and earning a standing ovation from Pharrell Williams.
