'The Voice' recap: And then there were three...

After Monday night’s show, Michelle Chamuel, Sasha Allen, The Swon Brothers, Holly Tucker and Danielle Bradbery all needed your votes. Last night’s eliminations were the most pivotal of the season. Why? They reveal the three contestants who will move on to next week’s finals.

Starting off the live elimination show was a performance by Fall Out Boy, featuring our friend and “The Voice” contestant Michelle Chamuel. The band and Michelle performed “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)." Veteran Team Cee-Lo contestant Nicolas David also performed his new single “Say Goodbye,” kicking off a series of "The Voice" nostalgia bits throughout the night.

During “The Voice” confessional, we learned coach Usher goes by “Ursher” and “Ursher Baby” (where did the R come from?), Adam Levine gets his tattoos from a Cracker Jack box, Blake Shelton laughs like Santa Claus and Shakira’s secret to success on the show has, indeed, been those hips of hers. (Please, never have The Swon Brothers put on those leotards again.)

It was time for the first round of eliminations. You know the rules: when Carson Daly says someone’s name, don’t freak out…he is just asking a question before he breaks the news.

For the fourth week in a row, Michelle Chamuel was the first contestant to make it to the finals.

Remember Team Adam’s Tony Luca? You know, Christiana Aguleria’s former Mickey Mouse club buddy? He graced “The Voice” stage once again, with a performance of his new single, “Never Gonna Let You Go.”

The top 5 got together for the first time this season to perform the rock classic by Poison, “Every Rose Has A Thorn.” With the Swon Brothers leading on guitars and the women holding down the vocals, it was one of the best group performances of the season.

The Danielle Bradbery moved on to the finals. Yay Team Blake!

Speaking of Team Blake, Scottish-rocker Terry McDermott came back to “The Voice” stage with a performance of his single, “Pictures.”

With The Swon Brothers, Sasha Allen and Amber Carrington all waiting to hear their fate, we waited as Carson announced the last finalist to move on to next week’s finals…wait for it…

The Swon Brothers joined teammate Danielle Bradbery and Team Usher’s Michelle Chamuel in the top three.

The time ends now for veteran coach Adam Levine’s Amber Carrington and newbie coach Shakira’s Sasha Allen.

We are getting closer to finding out who will be the next Voice. Keep watching and keep voting; you may just pick the winner.

    Rule of the night: build as much anticipation before announcing the results as possible.

More importantly, give back to those in need in Oklahoma after the devastating tornados.
