The competition comes to an end for four artists as “The Voice” Elimination Show premieres, Tuesday, April 3 (9-10 p.m. ET), LIVE on NBC. In the first of six Elimination Shows, the top three artists from Teams Blake and Christina who receive the most viewer votes from the previous night’s Performance Show will be saved. Meanwhile, the bottom three artists on both teams must each perform an additional last chance song. Coaches Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera will then be put on the spot to save one more member of their team to continue on in the competition, thereby eliminating the other two artists.
As the members of Team Blake and Team Christina await their fate, chart-topping band Gym Class Heroes take the stage to perform their latest hit single, “Ass Back Home (featuring Neon Hitch)” off their current album, “The Papercut Chronicles II.” Accompanying them in this special performance will be the artists from Team Adam.
Teams Adam and CeeLo will get their first chance to vie for America’s votes on “The Voice” Performance Show Monday, April 9 (8-10 p.m. ET).
Who among the following artists will be the next four to be eliminated from the competition?

"The Voice" is a vocal competition show featuring celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Carson Daly hosts and serves as producer, and Christina Milian serves as social media correspondent. The show’s innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, and then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance shows. In the end, each coach will have one star artist left ready to compete against the other teams’ finalists to be named “The Voice” – the winner will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
“The Voice” is a presentation of One Three Inc. (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.
Gym Class Heroes catapulted to international stardom in 2007 with their first #1 hit “Cupid’s Chokehold/Breakfast In America,” which set the record for holding the top spot on the CHR/Top 40 radio charts for the most consecutive weeks by a band and helped earn them the “Best New Artist” award at the MTV Video Awards that same year. Gym Class Heroes frontman Travie McCoy was responsible for one of the biggest songs of 2010 with his smash solo single “Billionaire (featuring Bruno Mars).” Last year, Gym Class Heroes scored their second #1 hit with “Stereo Hearts (featuring Adam Levine),” the lead single from their fourth Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen release, “The Papercut Chronicles II.” Their latest single, “Ass Back Home (featuring Neon Hitch)” has catapulted into the top 5 on the CHR/Top 40 radio charts. Dynamic live performers with a genre-defying sound, Gym Class Heroes has toured with rapper Lil Wayne and hip-hop/neo-soul band The Roots, and also headlined the Vans Warped Tour as well as cross-country and international tours of their own. Collectively, Travie and Gym Class Heroes have sold over 2 million albums worldwide and over 8 million digital singles.
