Sorry, I missed a week. I was super sick, but I am back now!
The first battle round is from Team Adam which is Grey and Nic Hawk. Adam chooses Dominoe by Jessie J. The battle round is pretty good and both sound great. In the end, Adam goes with Grey because he feels like she has potential and wants to work with her. Blake steals Nic, even though he complains about not getting hit on by Nic. Nic is grateful.
Timyra- Joi and Amber Nicole sing “Listen”. I have to admit, neither is nearly as good as Trevin Hunte when he sang it. Like woah, they sound like karaoke singers compared to him. Either way, I listened to the song without watching the screen. I feel like Timyra- Joi has the stronger voice of the two. She’s really good for her age. Cee Lo looks unimpressed and Adam is stunned. In the end, Christina chooses Amber and Christina says she had to go with the more established singer. She is really upset that no one stole her. Blake wishes he would have stolen her.
Up next is Blake with Cher as adviser. He pairs up Shelby Z and Justin Chain. They are given “Don’t You Wanna” by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson. Cher and Blake give them so good advice about how to sing a duet together. Justin talks about his accident defining him and how he wants to overcome. Shelbie Z doesn’t want to go back to cutting hair. They are told to give it their all by Blake. Personally, I feel like Shelbie Z sounded better tonight. She just sounded awesome. Nothing against Justin at all. They both sounded great. Blake goes with Shelbie Z in the end. No one steals Justin.
Next is Cee Lo: Anthony Paul and Caroline. Miguel is his mentor. They tell Anthony to not over sing the song because he’s from show choir. They really like Caroline’s take on the song. In the final rehearsal Anthony outshines Caroline and Cee Lo is concerned with Caroline’s performance. Up next is “As Long as You Love Me” by Justin Bieber. Caroline’s voice and rendition of the song is beautiful. Anthony sounds pretty generic to be honest. I’d choose Caroline, honestly, and Cee Lo agrees with me. He chooses her. Christina steals Anthony. She thinks he’s fantastic and has wonderful vocal control.
Next up is Adam’s team again with Tessanne vs Donna Allan. I don’t get why he continually puts his two best singers against each other, but whatever. They sing “Next to Me”. They sound AMAZING. I’m still mad that they are up against each other. Totally unfair. I mean honestly not one thing wrong with eithers performance. Personally, I connected more with Tessanne, but Adam can’t lose. He ultimately chooses, Tessanne! No surprise here, really. Donna is good, but I feel like Tessanne has more potential. No one stole Donna, which is a surprise. WOW.
Christina chooses “House of the Rising Sun” for Briana and Jacquie. Jacquie fangirls over Ed Sheerhan. Christina thinks that they will push each other to be better based on this battle pairing. They sound AMAZING together. Jacquie for her age sounds phenomenal. Either way, she goes she can’t lose. They all love them, but Christina goes with Jacquie! Cee Lo and Blake both choose to steal Briana. She goes with Blake ultimately.
