Adam gave some insight about his philosophy toward coaching, "You have to listen as a coach, so I had to listen to Melanie's idea." He certainly does that a lot, and letting his mentees be themselves and go with their own gut seems to be working for him. Then another one of my favorites, Team Blake's Terry McDermott learned that he would be another part of the Elite Eight. And this left only four more: Christina's Sylvia, Adam's Bryan Keith, Amanda Brown, and CeeLo's Trevin Hunte.

With all of them on pins and needles, Carson announced Trevin was safe. Then really awkwardly, Carson said, "Sylvia," and paused. He decided that would be a good moment- with everyone sweating buckets and just wanting this to be over with- to ask the contestants questions. But since he had just said her name without prefacing it with any sort of question, she and Bryan thought that Sylvia was through to the Top 8. Not so. Carson just wanted to know what was going on in her head. He was clearly just killing some time and milking it for all its worth, and a little more. But it was extremely annoying, especially because you could not even hear the singers' responses over the screaming from the audience. But since Amanda Brown was one of the final four, it was not a surprise that she moved on.

So everyone barely survived another week of eliminations, and all five of Ginge's Picks moved on to the Top 8, much to my excitement.

Tune in next week on Monday to NBC to hear the Top 8 sing and on Tuesday to learn who the Top 6 on The Voice are.
