Watch The Voice's Knockout Performances That Made Miley Cyrus Nervous, Frustrated Alicia Keys, & Led To Adam Levine's BIG MISTAKE!
The pop star and freshman coach admitted it was "so scary" to be this far along in the competition, but she felt much more at ease once the contestants started knocking their performances out of the park.
Of course, the real show-stopping moments came from the performances — but which contestants ended up moving on to the next round? Find out (below)!
Mary J. Blige's Ex-Husband Asks For A MASSIVE Amount Of Money Per Month In Temporary Spousal Support!
We hope Mary J. Blige has a good divorce attorney!
According to TMZ, Mary's ex-husband Martin "Kendu" Isaacs is asking for an insane amount of temporary spousal support per month. Mr. Isaacs first put in his request for support in September.
While Blige has filed to deny her former husband any money while they work out their divorce, Martin is asking for $129,319 EVERY thirty days. The singer's ex-manager believes it's a fair sum in light of the lavish lifestyle he's grown accustomed to over the course of their 12-year marriage.
In addition, Isaacs argues he's out of work now that he's no longer working for Ms. Blige.
As for the celeb's finances, she's about to make bank considering she's currently on tour with an upcoming album. In the past two years Mary has made about $1.5-$5 million dollars in revenue.
It will be quite interesting to see how this case plays out in court, especially since the two have a prenup. We wonder if a judge will believe Martin's claim that the prenup is void since it allegedly wasn't signed with his lawyer present.
So, do YOU think Kendu deserves a big check?

Mary J. Blige's lawyers better be ready!
Just a few months after Mary announced her split from longtime husband Martin "Kendu" Isaacs, new divorce docs reveal her ex is vying for spousal support.
According to TMZ, the development is especially concerning since the entertainer requested Martin not receive any cash back in June. Issacs' September 14 filing leads us to believe this disagreement will play out in a contentious court battle.
In addition to the spousal support request, the ex also wants Blige to pay his attorney fees.
Obviously, M.J.B. $45 million dollar fortune far outweighs Martin's net worth. Considering the two were married for twelve years, California law could award the ex-manager an unlimited duration of spousal support. This rule doesn't apply to marriages of ten years or less.
As for why the duo split in the first place,
Mary J. Blige is opening up about her shocking split.
On Tuesday, the soulful singer filed for divorce from her husband Kendu Isaacs after 12 years of marriage. According to the court docs, the artist and her music manager split because of "irreconcilable differences."
And now, the 45-year-old is speaking out about their big breakup.
A rep for the performer released a statement to People, saying:
"Ms. Blige is saddened to say it is true that she has filed for divorce, saying sometimes things don't work how we hoped they would. But, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything."
Now that she's single again, the songstress is coping with her heartbreak by throwing herself into her work, because the rep added:
Mary J. Blige Files For Divorce From Husband & Music Manager Kendu Isaacs After 12 Years Of Marriage
According to TMZ, the 45-year-old petitioned to end her marriage this week citing "irreconcilable differences" and asking the judge to deny Isaacs spousal support. The date of separation was listed as "to be determined." Hmmm.
The former couple wed back in 2003 but do not share any children together. It is unclear if the Family Affair songstress will continue to work professionally with her longtime partner.
We'll keep you updated on the split as more details become available.
Hate to see this one bite the dust!!!
