>>> the competition on the "the voice" is heating up, and all eight finalists charted on itunes after monday night's performances, but two were set home. des durant from team christina and teddy from team cee lo . good morning, guys.
>> des, you had so much pressure riding on you, last person standing on christina aguilera 's team, the last hope she had to have a win in this competition. tell me about the pressure you felt.
>> you know, the goal every week was just to go out there and put together a great performance. i think that was what me and christina set out to do every week, never about just the competition for the competition. it was about the performance, so i'm proud of what we've put together. i had fun every week and left my heart on that stage every time, so, yeah, it was a lot of fun.
>> cody, i know you had previously tried to have a career in nashville, and you kind of gave up on that because of the pressure. are you thinking now that you've got a better shot at it? are you going to try again?
>> well, i never gave up on it. i just -- it wasn't working as well for me as it has on "the voice," and, you know, with all of this happening now, i hope that i can go back with a different perspective and maybe some doors will open that were closed previously.
>> and des, you had dropped out of yale, even played football at yale. are you thinking to go back to school, or are you going to pursue a music career ?
>> not immediately. you know, i'm really excited to make my own music, so that's what i'm really looking forward to in the next few even days, months, making new music and getting the music that i've already made out there, so it's going to be an exciting time.
>> well, we loved watching you guys compete. you did a great job. thanks so much. best of luck to you all.
>> thank you very much.
>>> and the final six contestants compete on "the voice" next monday at 8:00, 7:00 central on nbc.
