Elimination night was a particularly brutal one Tuesday night on The Voice as three of the top eight were sent packingincluding the only gal left in the gameTeam Pharrell was mercilessly wiped out, and Team Adam’s triumvirate proved again that they’re a formidable force that, odds are, no one will be able to take down.

Adam’s got a whopping three contestants in the top five, while Blake’s got one in Country juggernaut Craig Wayne Boyd and Gwen has the talented sensitive guy Taylor John Williams.

America’s favorites this week were Matt McAndrew, Damien, Craig Wayne Boyd and Taylor John Williams. That left four others at the mercy of the Instant Save: Team Pharrell’s DaNica Shirey and Luke Wade, Team Gwen’s Ryan Sill and, for the first time ever, a contestant on Team Adam, Chris Jamison. Jamison’s performance of “Georgia On My Mind” was undoubtedly the best of the four, and he was rightfully saved by America and sent to the Top 5.

I’m not saying I have any problem with the Top 5all five of these guys are phenomenal singers, and in varied waysbut couldn’t we just have one female in this thing? She can sing! See? See? See???

I’ll get over it. And hey, at least Matt McAndrew’s not going anywhere.
