The brand-new knockout rounds in Season 3 of The Voice threw us some surprises, as judges were able to eliminate anyone who could not handle the pressure.

Each of the four judges started the week with 10 singers on their teams, but only half the contestants will advance. Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton had to say goodbye to some of their top talent.

Here are the contestants advancing to next week's live playoff round:

Team Adam Levine

Joselyn Rivera
Bryan Keith
Amanda Brown
Loren Allred
Melanie Martinez

Team Cee Lo Green

Cody Belew
Mackenzie Bourg
Trevin Hunte

Team Christina Aguilera

Devyn Deloera
Adriana Louise
Dez Duron
De'Borah Garner
Sylvia Yacoub

Team Blake Shelton

Liz Davis
Terry McDermott
Michaela Paige
Julio Cesar Castillo
Cassadee Pope
