    "The Voice" final four are staging a free concert on May 2 in Los Angeles that's also being livestreamed on NBC.com and Facebook. "Voice" coach Christina Aguilera reveals here which of her fellow coaches is her closest friend.

    "The Voice" final four let their hair down Thursday and rocked out at a special live concert in Los Angeles, just days before one of them will be crowned the NBC show's winner.

    "Voice" fanatics flocked to Universal CityWalk Hollywood and tuned in online to the show, hosted by Christina Milian.

    Only one singer from each team is still standing after Tuesday night's eliminations, which had Cee Lo Green unexpectedly tipping the scales in favor of one of his performers. Kim Baldonado reports from Burbank for the NBC4 News at 11 p.m. on May 1, 2012.

    Jermaine Paul, the Team Blake pick who ditched a back-up singing gig with Alicia Keys for a shot at being a frontman, opened up the show by dedicating his performances to his family.

    "This has been definitely a spiritual walk for me," he told the crowd. "It feels amazing."

    He then launched into Bon Jovi's singalong-friendly "Living on a Prayer."

    Jermaine was followed by Team Adam hopeful Tony Lucca, who reprised his unrecognizable version of Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time" that had gotten everybody talking on "The Voice."

    Tony had clawed his way back to the top after suffering steep criticism mostly at the hands of his ex-Mickey Mouse Club pal Christina Aguilera.

    "I've had a pretty interesting arc on the show," he said from the stage at Universal CityWalk. "I've sort of tapped into something I didn't really see coming... We just get a little more courageous each week and this week is no exception."

    Classically trained opera singer Chris Mann, who has developed a devoted following on the show, was up next with a soaring take on Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water."

    "Thank you for letting somebody like me be on this show," he said to his fans in the audience.

    And finally, Juliet Simms — the dramatic Team Cee Lo success story of Tuesday night's elimination round — closed out the show with a guttural take on the Police's "Roxanne" that evoked gutsy singers like Patti Smith and Janis Joplin, whom she cited as an influence.

    Today's concert gave the four a brief respite from the rehearsals and tough competition before they head into their last vocal contest on "The Voice" stage Monday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

    The winner of "The Voice" will be revealed on Tuesday's finale, which also will feature performances by Justin Bieber, Hall & Oates, Flo Rida and Lady Antebellum. The finale airs at 9 p.m. ET.
