About half of my favorite contestants went home this week, and I'm pretty bummed about it!

This week, NBC's 'The Voice' kicked off their live playoffs, and somehow they managed to squeeze over 20 performances into two nights of shows! I'm gonna be honest with you, I really don't like this part of the competition. They cut the singers in half over the course of two episodes, and I feel like that's too many to boot at once. I think I'd like it better if they had less contestants to start, but that's just me. Also, I'm super bummed about a few of the cuts this week! I absolutely LOVED Anatalia and two of the country ladies, Casi and Ashley. Plus, I thought Quizz (who is in 8TH GRADE, by the way) did amazing this week, and I was sad to see him go. That being said, I can't say that I'm angry about any of the remaining 12. They are all incredibly talented and I'm happy to see them move on. As of right now, my favorite contestants are probably Lauren Duski and Brennley Brown. That could always change, though! It's still early...

Here are a few of my favorite performances from this week's shows:
