This week on 'The Voice': Did the last female singer make it to the final 5?

This is one of the toughest parts of the season. Three singers must go. Three. And it's pretty tight race between some of these performers. Honestly, it's all very dependent on who is watching the show live, and who will actually live tweet to save their favorite singer.
This week on The Voice we're going to lose some quality singers, but that means we're one step closer toward crowning our winner.

Top two performances of the week

The Damien we know and love is back. Singing Adele's "Someone Like You," he almost brings us to tears. He's truly able to translate the pain and emotion of the song in his voice, as well as hit the right notes in his own unique way. Damien is an R&B singer at heart, but he can do so much more. This performance was particularly intimate, and it made us feel a little bit more connected to the contestant. You go, Damien!

Matt McAndrew
Anyone who knows "The Blower's Daughter" by Damien Rice (particularly from the ending scene of Closer) had high expectations for this song. And thankfully, these expectations were met. Matt performed this song with emotional dedication and vulnerability that many other singers in the competition lack. While he changed up the melody a bit throughout, he still kept true to the overall tone of the song. Matt McAndrew proves that sometimes the biggest, gaudiest voices or personalities aren't always the ones to prevail.

Bottom four singers

DaNica Shirey
The only female left in the competition, it's a little upsetting that she's in the bottom three. However, she might have overdone it with her performance of Heart's "These Dreams." In her last chance performance, DaNica sings "I'd Rather Go Blind" by Etta James, and it's a little underwhelming.
Her coach pleads her case: "Everyone back home at NBC TV land, they saw that, they heard that, and I'm clear that they felt that. I'm just asking America to go with what you felt. She has a super bright future and I'm going to be involved," Pharrell says.
Ryan Sill
Oh, Ryan. You're still adorable, but perhaps it's time for you to go. While he definitely has a solid voice, there's nothing particularly special about Ryan. On Monday night, Ryan sang "Open Arms" by Journey, and it felt too calculated, and perhaps the song was just too big for his voice.

To save himself, Ryan performs Bryan Adams' "Heaven," and while he's charismatic and hard-working, Ryan doesn't do it for us.
His coach pleads his case: "The reason why you keep getting saved is because you're so good at singing. That performance was so effortless and relaxed," Gwen says.
Luke Wade
A once fan-favorite, Luke Wade has slowly become pretty average competition. On Monday he performed Simply Red’s “Holding Back the Years," and it seemed as if Luke had forgotten some lyrics or missed a cue. It just seemed like a struggle.
To save himself, Luke sings Ben E King's "Stand By Me," a classic. But, again, it was somewhat off. Luke has a unique voice, for sure. But at this point in the competition, you need to serve a little more than a unique sound.
His coach pleads his case: "I loved it. It's the toughest thing. They saw you, they heard you. Everyone here they felt that. Both of you guys are amazing. The music inside of you everyone deserves to hear," Pharrell says.
Chris Jamison
Chris, Chris, Chris. We're sad that you're in the bottom four. His performance of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" wasn't anything spectacular, but it was entertaining and well-executed. What can we say? We're just a fan.

And thus, to save himself, Chris sings Ray Charles' "Georgia On My Mind," and he kills it. He absolutely kills it, and there's no doubt (at least in our minds) that he deserves to stay.
His coach pleads his case: "This kid has worked so hard for every single thing he's achieved. He was in the bottom very early on, worked his way back, has stuck around. The way he approaches singing with sweetness and passion, he's an absolute monster. Tonight he was not in the top four, but i will tell you this. Chris Jamison is in the top five. There's no kid that deserves it more. I'm saying we should save him, America," Adam says.
Who was saved: Chris Jamison — and by 50%, thank goodness.
So, we say goodbye to the last girl in the competition, and we're left with our final five performers. Something to note: Team Adam — or Adam's top three to be more precise — is fully intact. Also joining Damien, Matt and Chris in the final five are Taylor John Williams and Craig Wayne Boyd.
