What a great, great show last week. One singer was better than the next so for anyone to suffer elimination was heartbreaking and just sad.

However, this is how these shows roll – especially The Voice which has somehow snagged some of the best unknown vocal talent in the business.

And the song selections and arrangements were beyond stellar. I wish I knew how these songs were selected and, more important, the genius mind(s) behind these song arrangements. The A&R department on The Voice is incredible, bordering on inspiring.

So, suffice it to say, we are ready to be vastly entertained once again this week when the Top 12 are showcased to the world.

Here is the breakdown of the remaining singers:
