It was night one of the knockout rounds on ‘The Voice,’ slimming down Shakira and Adam’s teams by half. However, this week, it seems like all the judges were more focused on going against Blake!

Once again, The Voice stage was full of talent and competition, pinning the best against the best. However, it was much more difficult on the judges, of course, who were butting heads. ShakiraUsher and even his bromance buddy Adam Levine all really went head-to-head with Blake Shelton!

Team Adam Impresses Blake Shelton

“I think I like you as much as I can’t stand Adam Levine,” Blake told Team Adam’s country singer Amber Carrington after she opened the show with an amazing version of Avril Lavigne‘s “I’m With You.”

Amber responded by telling Blake how much she loved him, which riled up Adam, causing him to remind her whose team she was on! However, it must have been an incentive Adam liked — he kept Amber over folk duo Midas Whale.

Shakira, Adam & Usher V. Blake

When Team Shakira’s Tawnya Reynolds took the stage with “Hell on Heels,” she proved that she could rock the stage with that yodeling-country voice!

“When you throw in too many of the yodels, it cuts off the note,” Blake said after praising her amazing voice. But Shakira came to her defense, adding that she told her to do as many yodels as possible and that she liked them.

Then, both Adam and Usher encouraged Shakira, chanting “tell him!”

Even Usher said that he was impressed by her voice, adding that he wanted to “compliment the yodeling!” Blake must have had enough of that because he called Usher a “kiss ass!”

At the end of the debate, though, Shakira preferred rocker Garret Gardner‘s performance better than Tawnya’s yodeling, and she was sent home.

Then, the judges went after Blake again!

After another great performance by Judith Hill, who sang Willie Nelson‘s “Always On My Mind,” Blake told her she might as well punch him in the face, because he’s so mad she’s not on his team. Then, Shakira practically jumped up to volunteer and Adam joined in saying he would enjoy that, too! Jeesh!

Notable Performances Of The Night — ‘The Voice’ Artists Are Most Talented Ever

While the judges were bickering, the singers on Team Adam and Team Shakira were singing their hearts out!

One of the most powerful battles of the night, and probably the toughest decision for Adam, was when Amy Whitcomb went up against her best friend, Caroline Glaser. Amy sang “House of the Rising Sun,” a tough song. Starting a little shaky, she displayed her SUPER powerful voice and nailed the ending — even Caroline looked nervous.

Caroline took on a slightly easier song, “Little Talks,” — a smart decision as it really showcased just how consistent she could be (which the judges already knew). That consistency won her the battle.

Another amazing performance was by Warren Stone, who played guitar and sounded amazing singing, “(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight.” However, he was paired against judge favorite Sarah Simmons, who sang “Wild Horses,” and she blew all the judges away once again, winning the battle.

The last knock out of the night brought Shawna P. singing “Maybe I’m Amazed,” head-to-head with Sasha Allen, who sang “At Last.” The audience and judges alike loved Shawna’s rockin’ performance, but Sasha’s powerful voice was, once again, unbeatable.

The Bromance Lives

I didn’t want to worry any of you BLAM lovers — I love Blake and Adam’s bromance too. The bromance is still alive.

Adam told Sarah that her voice had perfection that reminded him of Blake’s wife Miranda Lambert, which made Blake’s night. “Here, here,” he said, happily applauding!

Later, when Usher told Blake how much he loved him and Blake said it back, Adam chimed in saying, “now I’m jealous!”

So, HollywoodLifers – do you think the judges were too tough on Blake? Or do you find the banter hilarious? Be sure to come back tomorrow night to see the knockout rounds for Team Usher and Team Blake!

As we descended once more, the diminutive green-roofed EWCP hut at Sanetti Camp hove into view; its chimney promised a warm evening. Over four days in the Bale Mountains we’d hiked about 70km over terrain between 3,300m and 4,200m high, observing plant and animal species seen nowhere else on Earth. We’d observed more than 40 Ethiopian wolves, from cubs and juveniles to adults, a figure worthy of some self-congratulation. Until it dawned that this was almost 10 per cent of the entire population.

In the EB2 category of temporary, non-immigrant workers, a H-4 visa spouse would typically wait for six years before a green card application is made and then potentially another six years for the issuance of the green card. This makes a total of around 12 years, time spent languishing in the aisles of Walmart, making small-talk with vendors on street corners, engaged in the soul-destroying household chores and the limited joys of child-rearing.

It was a very good episode, although I did feel for Blake when they seemed to all gang up on him.

Tonight’s episode was amazing. There were some amazing battles, and I wouldn’t have wanted to be in Shakira’s shoes at the end. I work at DISH with friends who watch, too, so I can’t wait to see what they thought, tomorrow at work. I can’t get enough of the episodes, so I’m saving them all to my DISH Hopper. I’m able to watch the episodes whenever I want to, and I don’t have to delete them anytime soon, because my hard drive can store up to 2,000 hours of entertainment.
