'The Voice' recap: Down to the Top 5

Last night it was that time, the time to say goodbye to another contestant on 'The Voice.' This week, instead of saying goodbye to two, it was time to say goodbye to one.

Kicking off the show was a performance by last year’s winner, Cassadee Pope. The former Team Blake member performed her new single, “Wasting All These Tears,” and managed to steal the hearts of her former coach and the viewers all over again. (Hello number 1 trending topic on Twitterand song download on ITunes).

During Monday night’s show each artist earned raved reviews from their coaches and the audience, but was it enough to keep them in the competition?

Before the first round of eliminations, Team Usher’s Michelle Chamuel paired up with Sasha Fierce Allen to perform the Madonna hit, “Open Your Heart.”

Yes! In the first round of eliminations Michelle Chamuel and Sasha Allen earned the first and second spot in next week’s top five semi-finals show, giving both rookie coaches another chance to win the competition.

Sorry Adam or Blake…someone has to go.

The next moment of the show belonged to Team Blake. After a brief recap of Blake's benefit concert dedicated to Oklahoma, Holly Tucker and The Swon Brothers performed The Wreckers' “Leave the Pieces.” Then, Team Blake’s youngest star Danielle Bradbery managed to secured her spot in next week’s top 5.

Could Team Blake really pull-off four straight weeks without eliminations?

Danielle Bradbery and Team Adam’s last-woman-standing, Amber Carrington, took the stage and moved the audience with their performance of The Bangles “Eternal Flame.”

During the next set of eliminations, Team Adam’s final angel learned that she would return to next week’s show.

*cut to Adam falling out of his chair in relief*…not going to lie, he looked terrified (For the record, he loves Amber Carrington and America this week).

The last pair standing belonged to Team Blake, The Swon Brothers and Holly Tucker would soon learn their fate. Coach Blake Shelton escaped this moment for the last three weeks. In the end, it was time to say goodbye to former Baylor University student Holly Tucker.

Now things are really heating up, America. Team Blake still has two players in the game, while the rest of the coaches have one each. The show is still in your hands; you have the power to pick a winner.

 Is it still too soon to call who will win it all?
