It's getting down to the pointy end of the competition on The Voice Australia, and last night the remaining singers were cut in half, with only four contestants now remaining!
Rachael Leahcar, Sarah De Bono, Darren Percival, and Karise Eden are the lucky four who will fight it out in next week's grand final.
Only one singer per coaching team was allowed to go through to the final round, and there was a lot of controversy online over whether the right singers had gone through. LISTEN: The Voice Top 24 Album -- Stream for free here!
Keith Urban's team was the hottest topic of the night, after he was forced to cut Diana Rouvas from the competition despite the fact that she had delivered one of the most stunning performances of the night the previous week.
Fans took to Twitter in support of Diana, with her name, Urban and #TheVoiceAU all trending on the social media site worldwide!
Earlier in the night Keith had also eliminated teen favourites Adam Martin and Brittany Cairns.
Seal also had incredibly hard choices on his hands, opting to take soul singer Karise Eden over the young talent of teenager Fatai.
Delta Goodrem unsurprisingly chose her angel Rachael Leahcar, and as a result lost her own back-up singer Glenn Cunningham from the competition.
Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden chose Sarah DeBono over Ben Hazlewood.
In terms of performances last night, show favourites Rachael Leahcar and Darren Percival failed to impress as much as usual, with their performances of Nights is White Satin (Rachael) and A Song For You (Darren) obviously marred by the fact that they were both suffering from the flu.
Performance highlights included Karise Eden taking on Leonard Cohen's iconic song Hallelujah
and Sarah De Bono belting out a powerful rendition of Here's Where I Stand
The final performances on The Voice Australia will be this Sunday, with each contender performing one cover and one original song. The winner revealed on Monday night.
