As we slowly whittle down the competition on The Voice, some real stars are beginning to emerge.

Monday night, the top eight artists sang their hearts out. The stakes were especially high for Michelle Chamuel and Sasha Allen, the last remaining contestants for Team Usher and Team Shakira.

Did they prevail under pressure or will the first team of the season be eliminated tonight? Carson and Producer Angie recapped some of their favorite performances this morning!

“Michelle Chamuel is all that Usher has left,” Carson stated for the record this morning.

The quirky pop singer received rave reviews and the 13th spot on the iTunes chart for her stripped down rendition of Bruno Mars’ “Grenade.”

Team Shakira’s Sasha Allen did her best to butter up Usher with her take on his hit single, “Without You.”

“I didn’t love that song she did, but she’s so good too!” Producer Angie said.

“Those two,” Carson said referring to Allen and Chamuel, “I hope, stay just because I don’t want Usher and Shakira to not have a pony in the race…Blake and Adam both have three. They could afford to lose one, as bad as that sounds.”

If the iTunes charts are any indication, The Swon Brothers shouldn’t be too concerned about tonight’s cut. They clocked in at #32 with “Seven Bridges Road.”

Following some minor timing issues in the beginning, the duo quickly recovered for a harmonious performance.

Not everyone brought their A-game Monday night, including one of Team Adam’s early favorites.

“One girl, who I thought and I still think is one of the best singers ever, but didn’t have the strongest night, was Sarah Simmons.”

“I don’t think that was her best last night,” Carson agreed.

Luckily, Team Adam closed the show strong with an award-winning Adele track.

“Amber Carrington singing ‘Skyfall?’ That was ridiculous!” Producer Angie exclaimed.

Even Carson couldn’t predict who will be eliminated tonight and admitted that he might take a sneak peek at the results beforehand.

“Sometimes I want to know before the show who’s going home just so I know for sure and it’s in my brain and that way there’s absolutely no screwing up, but then sometimes I don’t like to know because I feel like my reaction on air is a little bit more organic and it’s just better, you know?”

“Selfishly, I just want to know as a fan of the show who’s going home, so I might have to peek before the show!”

Find out who stays and who goes tonight at 9pm PT on NBC!
