In a high-stakes episode of TV singing competition "The Voice" that whittled down each team to a single artist, four contestants all came up short on Tuesday and failed to advance to next week's finale.
The four finalists: Chris Mann, Juliet Simms, Tony Lucca, and Jermaine Paul.
Hugs and tears abounded among both the show's winners and losers. Paveo cried as she hugged winning teammate Chris Mann and her coach Christina Aguilera, and she tearfully thanked "everyone who makes this beautiful, amazing magic happen."
On coach Cee Lo Green's team, a nervous-looking Juliet Simms had tears streaming down her face as she gripped teammate Rogers' arm while the two listened to Green's feedback. But Simms' nerves proved unfounded as both Green and TV audience voters gave her more points than Rogers, who thanked the show before exiting the stage.
Gratitude was a theme of the night among eliminated contestants. Parker thanked her coach Adam Levine "for believing in me" and the other coaches "for your generous words."
Willett, who was also celebrating her birthday, was praised by coach Blake Shelton for her strength in competing while also dealing with the death of her father. When asked by host Carson Daly where she got her strength, Willett said she wasn't sure, but added she "was raised by a beautiful mother and father" and told "to be myself no matter what."
