The Battle Rounds are in full swing on ‘The Voice’ Season 8 and they are shaping up to be SO intense and SO entertaining!
During this battle filled episode of The Voice, one singer was rejected by her coach, Pharrell Williams, only to get the three other coaches fighting for a chance to steal her! There was one catch, she already had a connection to Blake Shelton since she’s worked with him in the past. So, did she pick him or did she go with Christina Aguilera or Adam Levine?! Find out in our full recap below!
‘The Voice’ Battle Rounds Continue
Anthony Riley and Travis Ewing were the first pair of the night to battle it out on Team Pharrell. Being soulful singers, Pharrel thought it would be a smart idea to pair them for a performance of “Here I Come.” Pharrell ended up choosing Anthony based on his energy but Blake swooped in and stole Travis. “You’re home now,” he told him!
Nick Jonas helped Christina Aguilera with her first battle pairing — Ameera Delandro and Sonic (such unique names — love it!) They sang “Masterpiece” by Jessie J — such an amazing yet difficult song to tackle but Christina had faith in both powerhouses. Based on tone, Christina chose to keep Sonic on her team.
Meghan Trainor and Blake mentored Hannah Kirby and Sarah Potenza next. Blake gave the rock chicks “Give Me Shelter” by the Rolling Stones and they really killed it — wow! It was such an even battle according to each coach but Blake had to choose one singer and he chose Sarah. She was so shocked! Don’t worry — Hannah was quickly stolen by Pharrell!
Adam chose to pair Blaze Johnson and Michael Leier for his first battle round of the night. He gave them the popular song, “Rude.” They both sounded awesome but Blaze was the winner according to Adam!
Country Singers Battle It Out For A Spot On Team Blake
Blake’s next battle pairing was Cody Wickline and Matt Snook — both “hard-core country singers” according to Blake. They sang “How Country Feels” — how fitting! Cody ended up on top earning a spot on Team Blake going into Knockout Rounds.
Meghan Linsey and Paul Pfau of Team Pharrell went head to head next. They sang “Don’t Let Me Down,” and made the decision so hard for their coach. Pharrell picked Paul which means Meghan was up for grabs!
Blake and Adam both pushed their steal buttons for the her! Christian waited a minute before hitting her button as well! That’s a three-steal battle — Meghan chose to join Team Blake!
She use to tour with Blake, which makes this new pairing even more special.
