No more steals. No more saves. It's sing well... or go home. Performing tonight: Team Adam & Team Blake. Team Christina & Team Cee-Lo will perform TOMORROW.

But first... we have "How I Feel" with Christina... and FLO RIDA!

Now to business... As always, you can vote via phone, text (on Sprint networks only), Facebook,, or iTunes download. And the iTunes Top 10 multiplier is in play.

First, SHELBIE Z admits that she's not a size 2, which is part of the allure of this competition. Since her audition and tonight, she got married. Will that affect her fan standing? We'll see after she delivers "Fancy" by Reba.

THEY SAY: Christina thought she was a powerhouse, loving her growls. Cee-Lo says she's consistently charismatic. Adam agrees. Blake says that the way she handled herself makes him look smart.

WE SAY: It's a song that's been done before. It's a song that's been done BETTER before. And it's been done at various decibel levels before. Shelbie seems to have one decibel level: LOUD. There's a difference between singing loud and singing out. She'd be wise to learn it.

Next, Team Adam's calling in IT with JAMES WOLPERT singing "Case of You" by Joni Mitchell. He's gone from busking on the street to singing at Universal Studios. But will he make top 12?

THEY SAY: Blake wonders how he can be a geek "AND that awesome!" Christina was impressed by his vocal range. Adam said that he bounced back from his last performance, and there's something in him that does something bold.

WE SAY: He's got a variety of ranges and an ability to bring the best out of a song. He's an example of telling the story and emoting.

Now unless you've been watching another network, you notice that Christina Milian is not here. That's because she's dancing... withthestars! So Carson is pulling double duty this season.

Next up, an artist that Blake stole from Adam, NIC HAWK. He's gone from musical theatre to musical stage, from losing on Team Adam to winning on Team Blake. There's more to this performer, but will "the Flawk" see it on "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke?

THEY SAY: Christina thought it was a lot of fun. Cee-Lo thought that Nic had amazing rhythm. Adam feels like an idiot for letting him go. Blake thought that the singing could've been a little bit better.

WE SAY: It's a good live performance song. He's a good live performer for the good live performance song. But if he concentrated more on the vocal than the dancing and the rapping, he would be a halfway-legitimate threat.

Staying with Team Blake, we have RAY BOUDREAUX, bringing a bit of the bayou to the Voice. Can he bring a bit of the bayou on a fellow Louisianan's song, "Home" by Marc Broussard?

THEY SAY: Christina says that this was the most connected he's ever been. Cee-Lo thought "Sugar Ray" had real grit and a good connection to the audience. Adam thought it was a great song choice, and that Marc Broussard would be proud. Blake says that he's in a position to bring awareness to the "Delta Blues" sound.

WE SAY: This is a VERY good fit for this singer. The bad thing is that he didn't go anywhere with it until halfway in. But still, VERY good performance.

STAYING FURTHER with Team Blake, we have AUSTIN JENCKES, who's a veteran of the club circuit. After his audition, he got a proclamation and a street closing. Now it's up to America to see how he does with the Black Crowes' "She Talks to Angels". This is for his mom and his girlfriend.

THEY SAY: Christina thought he had so much heart. Cee Lo thought he had a lot of power on him. Adam was confused about back story. Blake can always count on Austin to sing with "150 percent of what's in here every time."

WE SAY: Austin has good control over his voice, and he delivers his performance with the restraint of a seasoned professional. He had a very solid vocal.

Next on Team Adam, it's the poppy Floridian GREY. She's won every battle she's ever faced, and she goes from strength to strength. She's living her father's dream on stage tonight with "Still Into You" by Paramore.

THEY SAY: Blake was looking to steal Grey's dominance. Cee-Lo thought she did a great job. Adam thought she took ownership of the song.

WE SAY: It's the kind of song you would see a girl like Grey singing. Just BETTER is all. What is tonight's theme, simple songs sung as badly as possible?

Speaking of steals, Team Adam started with WILL CHAMPLIN... then he got stolen... then Adam stole him back. Now the son of Chicago's Bill Champlin is going to try and do his lineage proud with "Secrets" by OneRepublic. This is going to his family, especially to his wife who is recovering from a brain tumor.

THEY SAY: Christina thought it was beautiful but needed "a few more spots". Cee-Lo loved the look of his vintage role. Adam says he deserves to be here because he's a "player".

WE SAY: A great take on a quiet favorite. It would've been better had he stayed at the piano and just went all the way with it, but he had to sing for votes. He probably would've gotten a few more had he done so, because his energy swallows up the rest of his voice.

Next up, it's a Texas rocker, PRESTON POHL. He wanted to show people he can sing. But can he show people he can win? His offering, dedicated to his dad who is fighting cancer, is "Nothing on You" by B.o.B featuring Bruno Mars.

THEY SAY: Blake thought it was studly. Christina wants to know where he is going from here. Cee Lo compliments yet another contestant. Adam says he covered all the grounds.

WE SAY: Dude was STRUGGLING from the singing to the rap.

Now we're going to another Louisiana vocalist, COLE VOSBURY. Blake is going to build off his steal with "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart. Fun fact: Cole's beard has its own Twitter account.

THEY SAY: Christina thought it was consistent. Cee Lo supports him. Adam still regrets not turning around for him. Blake says he's "truly that talented".

WE SAY: Cole has an uphill battle going up against another Louisianan. He could easily make top 12 if it weren't for him, because this was about as real as it gets. No frills, no funny business, just a simple song sung simply.

One more singer. It's TESSANNE CHIN, the Jamaican powerhouse from Team Adam. She started out singing background vocals for Jimmy Cliff. Tonight, she's the star and she's in the closer spot, and, thanks to some creative industry moves, all of Jamaica is watching! Her closer tonight: "Many Rivers to Cross" by Jimmy Cliff.

And don't even think about voting if you are reading this from Jamaica. It will. Not. Count.

THEY SAY: Christina says she's amazing and incredible. Cee Lo channels Bob Marley. Adam? "This woman... has a golden soul. It does not get better than what you did."

WE SAY:  She's in. No doubt about it. She's IN.

So who's going into the top 12 and who's going home. Find out Thursday. Meanwhile, it's time for the others TOMORROW!
