The Voice eliminated two Top 8 artists during Tuesday night's broadcast of the NBC reality singing competition's third season.
Dez Duran, a 25-year-old singer from Chicago Heights, IL, and Cody Belew, a 27-year-old singer from Nashville, TN, were ousted from the competition during last night's live one-hour results show after The Voice host Carson Daly revealed they had received the least number of home viewer votes following Monday night's live performance show.
"Thank you Christina for believing in me, pushing me and helping me find out the type of artist that I am," Duran said before Daly revealed the results of his elimination.
"I don't want to say [they're my] 'last words,' but I just want to say thank you for riding with me on this journey and for believing in me," Belew said prior to learning he had also been ousted from the competition.
Aguilera's team was completely wiped out last night and now she's officially out of the running to have one of her artists be crowned The Voice. Green's team is now comprised of Trevin Hunte, an 18-year-old singer from Queens, NY, and Nicholas David, a 31-year-old singer from Egan, MN.
Coach Adam Levine's team is left with Amanda Brown, a 27-year-old singer from Bronx, NY, and Melanie Martinez, a 17-year-old singer from Baldwin, NY.
As for fellow coach Blake Shelton, his team is currently comprised of Terry McDermott, a 35-year-old singer from Aberdeen, Scotland, and Cassadee Pope, a 22-year-old singer from Los Angeles, CA, who will move through to the next live performance show.
