'The Voice' Recap: Top 6 Sings Double Duty

Now that there are only 6 singers in the running to be crowned the winner of The Voice, they each have to sing two songs in order to fill Monday night's two-hour episode: one assigned by their coach and one they can pick in dedication to a source of inspiration. Classics and chart-toppers flooded the night's set list, but one coach stood up in frustration of the growing cultural compartmentalization of one singer.

'The Voice' Recap: Three Coaches Take Singers to the Top 6

'The Voice' Recap: Three Coaches Take Singers to the Top 6

The Voice trimmed down to its top six singers on Tuesday night, and only three coaches made the cut.

For the third week in a row, The Voice implemented its Instant Save, allowing one contestant to be rescued from a double elimination by collecting the most #VoiceSave tweets within a fragile five-minute window. Since a huge portion of the country doesn't watch the elimination episode live (or stay glued to Twitter to field their choices) we truly hope the new weekly ritual isn't how the winner is chosen during the live finale.

'The Voice' Recap: One Coach Barely Survives to the Top 8

The Voice must really be hoping to build a library of signature gestures, since judges are often standing up on spinning red chairs and pointing their index fingers at themselves from weird angles. Let’s not forget Cee Lo Green stroking his fluffy white cat or colorful cockatoo, rotating coach Usher slouching with a lifted knee, or the studio audience’s sway that is, for some reason, always offbeat.

'The Voice' Recap: Song Choice Champions and Cripples Top 10

Any alum of The Voice will tell you the same thing: Fight for your song choice. If your coach -- whether it's Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera or Cee Lo Green -- assigns a cover that you're not comfortable with, say something. Don't just hope it all comes together when it's time to tape the live show, because, as tonight showed, such is not always the case.

The Voice has always been a show of upsets -- not necessarily because the wrong singers are eliminated too early, but because so many singers are sent home every week in general. America said goodbye to a whopping eight singers on Thursday night, and nearly every upcoming week until the finals will rid the competition of two singers, regardless of whose team they’re from.
