Two more contestants were chopped from "The Voice" Tuesday night, reducing Team Adam and Team Cee Lo to two-man line-ups.
Cee Lo Green, who voted auto-shop heartthrob James Massone off the show last night, had to choose between his final two female vocalists, Cheesa and Juliet Simms after "Voice" voters saved Jamar Rogers from elimination.
Adam Levine, who cut Pip during instant eliminations, had the option of saving Katrina Parker or Mathai. Tony Lucca was saved.

Not surprisingly, the battle between Cheesa and Simms was the toughest of the night. Cheesa sang Kelly Clarkson's "Already Gone," a performance that was sometimes impressive and sometimes difficult to listen to.
Simms sang "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia, a performance that wasn't perfect either, but good enough to her keep on the talent show. (Cee Lo argued that Juliet's voice was like art imitating life and life isn't perfect.)
Mathai, the petite girl with the big smile tried to charm the judges with "Cowboy Casanova," while Parker earned a top complement from two judges after performing "Perfect."
Both Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera said she was the best singer on Levine's team. Levine agreed saving her over Mathai.
Here's where teams stand heading into semifinals, which air Monday, 8 p.m. ET on NBC:
Team Adam: Katrina Parker, Tony Lucca
Team Blake: Erin Willett, Jermaine Paul
