'The Voice' 2 Quarter Finalists

Meet the Top 16 Contestants of Season Two

By

After a night of disappointing performances, NBC's singing competition, The Voice eliminated four more contestants, cutting each team down to the top four. Check out the 16 quarter finalists still in the running to win The Voice Season Two. (And look back at the Top 24.)

The Voice airs on NBC, with performance shows on Mondays 8/7 PM Central and results shows on Tuesdays 9/8PM Central.

1. Jesse Campbell

During his blind audition, 42-year-old Jesse Campbell so impressed The Voice judges that all four not only turned around but they gave him a standing ovation.

Campbell chose to be on Team Christina, where he has continued to wow judges and viewers alike. Judge Adam Levine has said that Campbell is "the dude to beat."

Campbell has mastered his vocals and knows how to apply them across musical genres. Plus he has a feel good story as a single father who lost everything--even living out of his car--before bouncing back. America loves a survivor.

2. Chessa

Twenty-one-year-old Hawaii native Chessa is on Team Cee Lo. Although she didn't impress judges (or viewers for that matter) during her live performance, she still made it into the quarter finals. Hopefully her next performance will be better or she'll be heading home soon.

3. Ashley De La Rosa

Ashley De La Rosa is a 17-year-old high school senior who is on Team Christina. During the season's third battle round, De La Rosa defeated fan favorite Jonathas, but her song choice during the live performances didn't thrill anyone. Still, three of the four judges picked her over Sera Hill to continue on in the competition.

4. Tony Lucca

Like Christina Aguilera, Tony Lucca was once a Mouseketeer on Disney's Mickey Mouse Club, but that didn't kept the Voice judge from criticizing his live performance. The 35-year-old is on Team Adam where he battled Chris Cauley, singing "Beautiful Day" by U2 (but only after Bono personally approved the singers). Although Aguilera wasn't impressed, his live performance garnered Lucca enough viewer votes to continue into the Season Two quarter finals.

5. Chris Mann

Twenty-nine-year-old Chris Mann surprised judges in his blind audition by choosing a song by the famous Italian operatic singer, Andrea Bocelli.

Although he was wanted by both Cee Lo Green (who later said Mann has one of the best voices in the competition) and Christina Aguilera, Mann chose to go with Team Christina.

For his first live performance, Mann made Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" his own and garnered enough viewer votes to continue on to the quarter finals.

6. James Massone

James Massone is a 23-year-old rapper from Boston, Massachusetts whose blind audition so impressed the judges that three (Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green) fought over him. Massone went with Team Cee Lo.

During the battle round, Massone was unanimously chosen by the judges over WADE. After his live performance viewers voted him on to the quarter-finals.

7. Mathai

Eighteen-year-old Mathai so nailed her audition performance of Adele's “Rumor Has It” that three judges--Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green--all turned and fought over her.

Mathai chose Team Adam. She won her battle with Nicolle Galyon by an unanimous judges decision and viewers voted her into the quarter finals after her live performance.

8. Jermaine Paul

Back-up singer Jermaine Paul is 33-years-old and has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Mary J. Blige and Joss Stone.

Stepping out of their shadows, Paul's blind audition moved both Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton. Paul chose Team Blake and survived the battle round with all the judges voting to move him forward. His confident performance of Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" led to viewers voting him into the quarter-finals.

9. Lindsey Pavao

Twenty-two-year-old Lindsey Pavao is a coffee shop singer from Sacramento, California. Her creative version of "Say Aah" by Trey Songz ignited a judges' war between Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton.

Pavao joined Team Christina. Although her performance of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" failed to impress the other judges, Aguilera sent Pavao on to the live performances. There, despite a shaky start, Pavao's rendition of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" impressed audiences enough for her to move into the quarter finals.

10. Katrina Parker

Katrina Parker is an indie pop singer/songwriter. In the battle round, Parker went up against Angel Taylor and surprised everyone (including herself) by winning. Her poor song choice for the first live performance left her having to win the sing-off for a place in the quarter-finals.
