The battle rounds come to their conclusion as Avery proves why he is THE singer to beat in this season of ‘The Voice’!

Well, fans of The Voice, another segment of the season is finally behind us as we witness the completion of the battle rounds on tonight’s episode. Our coaches (Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton) have narrowed their teams down to ten, and, as Avery Wilson‘s battle closed out tonight’s show, he proved once again that he is the clear frontrunner of season three!

Adriana Louise vs. Jordan Pruitt

As the two visit with Christina and advisor Billie Joe Armstrong for the first time, we learn that they’ll be battling on “Hot N Cold” by Katy Perry. Right out of the gate, Jordan hits the song with her professional ability. Christina notes that Adriana seems a little apprehensive, and warns both to make sure they’re not just mimicking Katy, but bring their own touches to the song instead. Jordan blames her past with Disney for her fear to step outside the box, which is a bit of a weak excuse, if you ask me. During the battle, Jordan starts off a little weak, but grows really strong as the battle progresses. Adriana is pretty incredible throughout the performance. I wouldn’t have been able to choose a winner. Christina shockingly chooses Adriana, leaving Jordan destined to go home, as there are no steals left among the other coaches. Did anyone else’s heart break a little when Jordan cried?

Kelly Crapa vs. Michaela Paige

While the two youngest competitors of the season meet with Blake and advisor Michael Bublé, we learn that the two will go head-to-head on “I Hate Myself For Loving You” by Joan Jett. Michael notes that Michaela is like a “60-year-old black woman inside a 16-year-old blonde’s body,” which isn’t too far off. Kelly fades into the background a bit against Michaela, but Blake always seems slightly biased towards his country ladies. He seems to be defending her from the get-go. The two really let it rip during their battle, but Michaela’s voice always seems more suited for the song. Blake, surprisingly, gives the win to Michaela. Kelly goes home, as Christina doesn’t move to use her last steal because she’s not feeling the country genre, she says. So long, Kelly! Good luck in the future!

Avery Wilson vs. Chevonne

The battle we’ve been waiting for! The two meet with Cee Lo and advisor Rob Thomas, where we learn that they’ve been paired up because of their expressive vocal ability. We learn they’ll be singing “Titanium” by David Guetta and Sia. Chevonne highlights a vocal strength that her blind audition didn’t really express. Avery, meanwhile, struggles initially, but brings it during their follow-up rehearsals. During the battle, Chevonne’s voice seems a little strident, which has been my problem with it since she auditioned, while Avery is just plain incredible. Their finale is ridiculously good. Thankfully, Christina still has a steal because whoever Cee Lo leaves behind isn’t going anywhere. Cee Lo decides to stay the course with Avery, which is the right choice, in my mind. And, as expected, Christina steals Chevonne almost immediately, which I feel is a much better fit!

And with that, we’re off to the new knockout rounds next week! What did you think of tonight’s episode, HollywoodLifers? Did your favorites make it through? Or are you just glad that the battles are finally over? Let me know below!

Avery Wilson’s one of the best on The Voice, and he has a great chance of winning this seasons 5 million dollar prize. I’m a bit sad the battle rounds have finished, which I really enjoyed watching. I’ve been looking forward to each new episode of The Voice as good as it’s been. Since I work at night I always get all of my favorite primetime shows recorded using the PrimeTime Anytime feature. I don’t have to worry about tying up all the TV’s recording my shows. I get them recorded on one TV and the kids can still watch what they want and everyone’s happy. I didn’t know about this sweet feature until my coworker at DISH told me about it. No more timer conflicts or multiple DVRs, which created one big mess.
