‘The Voice’ Top 8 results show: Which 4 singers go to finale; which 4 are eliminated? [Updating Live Blog]
After the Top 8 artists performed on Monday’s episode of “The Voice,” they now await their fate on Tuesday’s results show. Four will move on to next week’s finale for Season 16. Four talented singers will unfortunately be eliminated.

For this Top 8, Blake Shelton has an astonishing five of them. It’s possible only one team member goes home and the other four make up the Top 4 finale. More likely, however, is that Kelly Clarkson and/or John Legend will have someone also in the finale. Coach Adam Levine is done for this season.

For tonight’s one-hour episode hosted by Carson Daly, here’s how the competition will work:

Three contenders will automatically advance forward through public voting. Two will immediately be eliminated on this show. Three will perform for an Instant Save on social media, with just one joining the Top 4 finale next week.
