The Voice – Instant Elimination – Results Shocker- 04/16/2012
Here are the results of the Instant Elimination on The Voice Quarterfinals for Team Christina and Team Blake.
Christina Aguilera eliminates: Jesse Campbell! (OMG I AM SO SHOCKED)
Blake Shelton eliminates: Jordis Unga! (OMG I AM SO SHOCKED)
I am so shocked right now. Speechless and angry. But mostly sad. I am so sad to see Jordis go. I love her so much. I hope this is not the end for her. She really wanted this.

I agree with posters who think Christina is an idiot. The show is called the voice for a REASON! To pick the singer wit the best voice. Jess was HER best. And what's going on with Blake? I thought he had common sense. RaeLynn is a joke. How did he keep a straight face when he said he was "proud" of that joke of a performance. The girl he sent home was 1000 times more talented. She must be wondering like everyone else, WTF? Are they TRYING to turn off viewers?
The teams seem so messed up to me now. RaeLynn should have never made it past the blind auditions... she was "pitchy" from the get go. Someone sees money in her... molding her into something. Gwen Sebastian would have been a much better voice to put through as the "resident country artist" on the show. RaeLynn will now go all the way because she is the only country artist, so she will get all of the country votes. Most of my favorites are gone. A few are left, but I fear they will get axed next week, so I won't say who they are so as not to jinx it...:)
The Voice dipped 10% to a season low (and series low for a performance show) 3.6 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 4.0 rating last week. and I only see it going further down next week !! Serves them right for eliminating their best singers !
@rickey They will get great ratings for tonight but they've really pissed off A LOT of people tonight. I would know because I'm one of them.
Personally, I think tonight's eliminations were business decisions. Jesse may have one of the best voices in the competition, but what type of music would he record, and would it Sell?? Jordis came in 5th on a lesser singing competition, got a record contract, and was dropped before her music was ever released. She can belt out the big note but has real issues in her lower register. Tonight her song was linear and forgettable. I'm surprised Blake saved her last week. Aside from some people here, the public doesn't like her that much. She also seems to have emotional issues, which may be why the record company and Blake dropped her.
WTF! I didn't watch tonight and this is what happens. lols Will watch later on the project free tv. Can't believe Blake would eliminate Jordis, really? And Xtina getting rid of Jesse, what is going on? Did he bomb tonight? Is he not relevant? Too old fashion, what the heck happen? I thought Jesse was her strongest competitor? Huh? OH well......saw Rickey's tweet about is so I had to come check it out here. :)
I am now rooting for Team Ceelo... Team Xtina should be put at the 4th place when final voting comes.
Xtina is A-hole! Chris Mann should have voted off! or Ashley! This coach is not helping the show anymore!
@rickey agreed with sending Jesse home. It makes Chris and Lindsay her final 2 and they are selling best soo
@rickey Rickey, are you having a SS tonight due to the results? I missed the Voice tonight, so I would love to hear what happened!
What! Jesse Campbell? He was the best singer on the show. I thought for sure he was going to win. Is Xtina nuts?
Not only are they not afraid to make a few enemies, They are not afraid of looking like a couple of tasteless, tonedeaf jerks!
@PGV I agree. Last season's winner wasn't able to sell as much. Although, he was the best. I think we're beginning to see some of the disadvantages of the show. I'm not one to judge second chances, but there's always a reason they don't sell the first time or the succeeding attempts.
@BenSwanson woah man. I mean, I'm mad Jordis got eliminated too, and I agree Blake made a mistake, but insulting Erin like that really isn't cool.
@BenSwanson Ugly has nothing to do with singing talent, that being said, she was the worst tonight... I'm pissed that Jordis is no longer on the show though!
WHY DIDN'T HE ELIMINATE RAELYNN???? How was he not embarrassed by her performance and her voice?
@Idolwild Its all about the money. Jesse is not going to sell a lot of records out the box. Unarguably he was the best singer on the show. However he may have, like the other eliminated singers gotten what he needed as far a showcase and picked up enough fans get a deal and make a living. She may have done him a favor in the end.
@Idolwild i agree, why did she send the best singer on the show home? did you see adam's reactions? he knows she was wrong...and such a touching story too of him and his daughter,,,,,,wth just happened/
@Mikhail XO I think it's a horrible decision to hand more power to these Power-Hungry Narcissistic coaches. One of the many Reasons Idol was so successful is that it gives the viewing audience 95 % Control of the outcome.
I dont know if it's just me, but I think the fact that Idol had a 'shock elimination' led The Voice to make that sort of decision. With the hope of creating hype around the Show the way Idol did. The Voice is undoing all of it's good work. Brilliant and Exciting auditions and then it's all downhill from there. Them seemingly focusing on the "BUSINESS aspect of the show" will be futile if there is no one left watching the show.
@digitalpunkdiva I have to disagree that he was the best. Honestly, if we are talking about technical singing, Jamar is probably the strongest, followed by Jermaine. However, I'm not big fans of theirs, and support Jordis and Juliet. With Jesse I never got the appeal. I feel like Christina made the right decision letting him go tonight. Besides, it doesn't matter, because you know Lindsey was going to be the last one standing on her team.
@Samson58 Yeh. It's a shame. I hope he gets a record deal.
@bwatt27 Yeah all the signs are in Lindsey favor. It would be very very strange for Xtina not to have Lindsey in the final. In the long run I think she did Jesse a bigger favor by giving him underdog status and creating a controversy than if he just warbled off into the sunset. Keep in mind the "best" singers rarely win this type of talent show.
