"The Voice" Recap: The Battle Rounds End with a Cee Lo Steal

Trae Patton/NBCThe Voice aired the last of its battle rounds on Tuesday night. By the end of the one-hour episode, each coach had eight artists remaining on his or her team.

The guest mentors were again on hand to lend their expertise and support to the contestants. The coach-mentor pairings were as follows: Adam Levine-Ryan Tedder; Blake Shelton-Cher; Christina Aguilera-Ed Sheeran; and Cee Lo Green-Miguel.

Here's a rundown of what happened on Tuesday's episode:

The first battle featured two of Cee Lo's artists: Jonny Gray, a former Air Force police officer, and Shawn Smith, an Army sergeant-turned-country singer. They performed "Refugee" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Adam said he believed every single word that both of them sang. Blake added that the duet was "hot." Cee Lo told Jonny there was something "phonetic" about him. He named Jonny the winner of the battle, while Shawn was dismissed.

Team Adam's Barry Black and Preston Pohl traded lyrics on The Temptations' "I Wish It Would Rain." Christina said Preston's voice sounds as if it comes from another era. Both she and Cee Lo thought Preston came out ahead. Preston advanced, and Barry went home.

For the final battle, Olivia Henken and Stephanie Anne Johnson of Team Christina sang The Band Perry country hit "DONE." Cee Lo and Adam both favored Stephanie, with Adam citing her "grit." Christina went with her gut and chose Olivia instead. However, Cee Lo used a steal on Stephanie.

The show also quickly recapped three other battles:

-- Team Blake: Holly Henry defeated Cilla Chan.

-- Team Blake: Brandon Chase emerged victorious over Emily Randolph.

-- Team Cee Lo: Tamara Chauniece triumphed over Keaira LaShae.

The Voice continues next Monday night on NBC with the start of the knockout rounds. It's somewhat similar to the battle rounds, except the artists will choose their own songs to perform. In addition, each coach will have one steal to play with.

Here are the artists remaining in the competition:

Team Adam: Juhi, Lina Gaudenzi, James Wolpert, Tessanne Chin, Preston Pohl, Ashley DuBose, James Irwin, Grey.

Team Blake: Briana Cuoco, Nic Hawk, Shelbie Z, Holly Henry, Austin Jenckes, E.G. Daily, Ray Boudreaux, Brandon Chase.
