'The Voice': Anthony Evans & Jesse Campbell Blew Away The Competition

The Voice Anthony Evans And Jesse Campbell

I had to fan myself after watching Anthony Evans and Jesse Campbell’s mind-blowing performance on last night’s battle rounds.

Was it just me, or was Anthony Evans and Jesse Campbell‘s head-to-head competition the most epic battling on The Voice ever? Sweet lawdy, I felt like I was being taken back to my Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill days!

In the two seasons of the show, this was arguably one of the most difficult choices for the judges to make in the battle rounds, as both pastor’s kid Anthony Evans and single dad Jesse Campbell’s renditions of Alicia Keys’s “If I Ain’t Got You” were both ridiculously amazing. I was cracking up in disbelief!

I thought Anthony’s high-pitched “Mariah Carey” moment at the end of the song was head spinning, and it made me want to jump out of my seat, but I totally get why the judges were ultimately won over by Jesse — who could resist his “ba-ba-ba-ba baby!” add-in? Pretty brilliant stuff, Je-Je-Je-Je Jesse!

But if it were up to me, I’d have chosen Anthony (by an inch) since I just naturally gravitate towards the underdog…and his humility was a bit more attractive than Jesse’s tendency to outshine himself with his vocal dramatics.

What say you, HL-ers? Did any of the other battles compare to Anthony and Jesse’s?

I deeply resented the format of the show, which allowed Anthony Evans to be eliminated in the first battle round. Christina Aguilera should not have the only vote needed to eliminate him. The audience should have been given the opportunity to vote to save Evans, as they are allowing far weaker singers that opportunity during the rest of the competition. Look at the contestants who are left, and it’s obvious that if he was on another team he’d still be singing on the show. If he had to be eliminated, why did she jettison him on the first battle? Why didn’t she match a weaker soloist with Campbell instead? It really made me almost stop watching the show.
