Jermaine Paul was upstreamed to the semifinals on tonight's (April 17) elimination episode of 'The Voice' by the American voting audience, leaving Erin Willett and RaeLynn in the bottom for Team Blake Shelton.

While practicing 'Wake Up Call' for tonight's first live show (April 2) on 'The Voice,' country gal RaeLynn said she was going to punch America in the face with country music. Go on, girl! Wearing a pink flower in her hair, Carrie Bradshaw-style, brown cowgirl boots and a big tulle skirted black dress, the youngest competitor of the season turned the Maroon 5 pop song into a country anthem. Her coach Blake Shelton admitted that it's a country song anyway – you cheat on me, I shoot you -- so RaeLynn could easily have her way with it.
When you're a contestant on 'The Voice,' having a 'case of the Mondays' isn't such a bad thing ... unless you lose in the battle round, of course.
