On tonight’s live elimination episode of ‘The Voice’ (May 21), the Top 8 contestants were revealed. After last night’s round of performances, America has voted and determined who gets to stay in the competition — and conversely, who gets sent home.

The hour-long installment opened with Blake Shelton paying tribute to the victims of the recent tornado in his home state of Oklahoma by delivering a special performance of ‘Over You’ alongside his wife, Miranda Lambert.
