Welcome back to the round two battles! ‘The Voice’ kicked off its Tuesday, April 1 showdown by throwing singer Sisaundra Lewis into the ring — and she killed it. Keep reading to see who went up against her and was sent home!
The first-ever round two battles took off yesterday, March 31, and tonight’s display of talent was no less impressive. The first battle of the night may actually be the best battle round performance we’ve ever seen! With only one more round two battle episode to go, the competitors brought their best Voice forward.
Sisaundra Lewis Secures Her Spot As A Major Frontrunner
The first performance of the second night of the round two battles literally scared us that the stage might break. That’s how good Sisaundra Lewis and Biff Gore‘s battle was. Talk about two powerhouses! The soulful singers took the stage to belt out James Brown‘s It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World. In rehearsals, Chris Martin and Blake Shelton let the duo keep on singing just for fun — they didn’t need any instruction!
So was it a man’s world? Nope. It was Sisaundra’s world. No offense to Biff, whose performance was incredibly impressive, but Sisaundra Lewis will be hard to beat. This might be the best battle round performance we’ve ever seen.
The Second Night Of Round Two Battles Impresses The Coaches
Ddendyl and Deja Hall, of Team Shakira, shared the spotlight next with a lovely rendition of Say Something. If only these ladies could form a duo! Their voices complimented each other so beautifully. Ddendyl, dressed in her signature pin-up look, connected with the audience (and at-home viewers), while Deja continued to impress with her youthful, yet mature presence. All four judges gave their praise to both of the young ladies, but only one could stick around for good. “You both killed it,” said coach Shakira, noting that the decision would not be easy. However, she ended up choosing Deja to move onto the playoffs because she’s “like a sponge” and she could see her growing.
Shakira also sent home Emily B. who battled with Kristen Merlin to a Dixie Chicks song. Congratulations, Kristen!
After a night of many powerful women, two amazing men took the stage! Singing One Direction‘s hit Story Of My Life, Morgan Wallen went up against Stevie Jo. Both guys flaunted their rocker flare and unique styles. Morgan’s raspy range and falsetto caught the coaches’ attention throughout the entire performance, as did Stevie’s smooth voice. Adam Levine had the best critique of the night, telling the guys that although the song originally belongs to a bunch of “boys,” he saw “men” up on the stage. (Was that a dig at One Direction?!) Both men demonstrated their talent, but Usher ultimately nabbed Stevie Jo.
Adam called up Morgan, after his performance, and as the young singer walked over to his red seat, Adam fist-pounded him for a job well done — and then pounded his button! That’s right, Adam stole Morgan! Saved by the steal!
