Adam Levine was "little bit p–– off" after having to say goodbye to two team members on The Voice's live results show Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the three other coaches – Usher, Shakira and Blake Shelton – were ecstatic that their artists will stay in the game.
The top eight singers all delivered performances that generated praise from the coaches Monday night, which made it nearly impossible to predict who would be sent home this week.

The swiveling chairs on The Voice saw some new occupants this season.
Newbie coaches Shakira and Usher debuted this fourth season and have generally earned rave reviews for their enthusiasm and coaching styles. The pair replaced original coaches Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, who both took time off to work on other projects, and currently sit alongside veteran coaches – and sweetly snarky best buds – Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
But Green and a recently slimmed down Aguilera vowed they would return to the popular singing competition, and NBC announced that the original four coaches will indeed be back in their chairs when season 5 debuts in September.

Monday's two-hour The Voice, featuring the Top 8 live performances, was bookended by a pair of diva-strong performances that showcased both glamour and range.
Judith Hill, a former duet partner of the late Michael Jackson, opened the show with her own disco-inspired version of the electronic pop hit of Will.i.am and Justin Bieber, "#thatPOWER." Wearing a sci-fi Mohawk ponytail and a silver-feathered jacket that looked both rocker and angelic, the always-strong Hill owned the stage with her original vision of the tune.
"I think it was great to see you flip that song," said Shakira.

Oklahoma native Blake Shelton drew on the comfort of his wife Miranda Lambert on The Voice Tuesday night as the couple opened the results show with a touching duet tribute to those affected by Monday's devastating tornadoes.
Shelton, 36, and Lambert, 29, delivered a touching and somber "Over You" as the show called its fans to donate to the Red Cross and its relief efforts for victim families and survivors of the deadly storm, which smashed into Moore, Okla., about 100 miles from the couple's home.
"I think "Over You" was the perfect song for this situation," Shelton said after the show. "The moment was right. I wish things could have been different. I wouldn't have thought about performing a song like that, but it seemed like the right thing to do."

Competition tightened for the top 10 on Monday's episode of The Voice, with star potential growing as singers showed off deeper range and greater confidence in their performances.
As rescuers searched for survivors of Monday afternoon's Oklahoma tornadoes, Voice host Carson Daly offered a shout out of support to all affected by the tragedy.
Oklahoma native Blake Shelton said his family is safe but that the violent, massive storm made it hard to focus on the competition.
"They are going through hell right now," Shelton said. "It's bad news. [But] I've got a job to do and the team is counting on me."

Two talented singers ended their journey on The Voice Tuesday night, after America voted to determine which artists would make up the season's Top 10.
The eliminations came one night after the Top 12 delivered red-hot performances – quite literally – in a live playoff show that connected with the audience so strongly that host Carson Daly said each artist charted on iTunes.
But one day after the performances, three singers – Sasha Allen and Garrett Gardner of Team Shakira and Vedo of Team Usher – stood nervously as Daly announced the results: Allen received the final save, sending Gardner and Vedo home before the next round of live performances on Monday.

Heat was Monday night's theme on The Voice – even the air-conditioning in the studio gave out for a time.
Despite the setback, the show drew a host of sizzling performances from powerhouse country singers who likely raised their stock for fans at home now voting for the Top 12 finalists.
After 30 minutes without the a/c, a sweltering Usher removed his shirt to reveal a black tank top and sculpted arms, which set fans screaming. But it was performances from country's Amber Carrington, 16-year-old Danielle Bradbery of Texas and the always-soulful Judith Hill that kept the room hot as the night's competition wore on.

The Voice's celeb coaches looked visibly pained Wednesday night before having to send home one of their own contestants.
Shakira – whose team performed Tuesday along with Blake Shelton's singers – couldn't even wave to the camera when she was introduced at the top of the show. "I couldn't sleep last night because of what I knew I had to go through today," she said. "I know my heart is going to break into 100 pieces."
Usher and Shelton looked equally anguished about having to send home one of the singers, whom American did not save. Adam Levine – whose all-female team performed Monday alongside Usher's group – was so torn that he didn't blurt out his choice until credits were rolling.
So who went home Wednesday night? Keep reading to find out ...

The Voice's celeb coaches Shakira and Blake Shelton beamed like proud parents as their teams delivered powerful performances Tuesday night, each fighting for a spot in the top 12 before Wednesday's live elimination.
Team Shakira's Sasha Allen – a steal from coach Adam Levine, whose team performed Monday along with Usher's – closed out the night with her show-stopping performance of "Oh! Darling" that left the judges drooling.
"I feel that we are in front of one of those moments that we all signed up for here, that we all live for in this show," Shakira said. "You just gave us this moment. You have one of the best voices I have ever heard in my life."
