The battle rounds on The Voice are a time for contestants to get some technical pointers from their coaches, sing in the presence of celebrity mentors, and beat the musical crap out of their opponents. And on Oct. 16, twelve aspiring singers did just that!

From Nashville-based country crooners to downright divas, we heard it all. But more than half of these talented vocalists were cut from the competition, losing their chance at winning a $100,000 prize and record deal with Universal Records.

Below are the contestants who were eliminated on The Voice battle rounds on Oct. 16, 2012:

Nicole Johnson from Team Blake

Ben Taub from Team Cee Lo

Adanna Duru from Team Adam

Beat Frequency from Team Christina

Emily Earle from Team Cee Lo
