The Battles are officially over on ‘The Voice’! — One coach landed a steal that could potentially turn their team into the frontrunners! Who made it to the Knockouts? — Check out our recap!
The Battles continue on The Voice! Tonight, October 23, the last round of contestants will hit the stage in hopes of a spot in the next round of the competition — The Knockouts! on Monday’s episode, October 22. Blake Shelton is the only coach left with a steal, and he’s waiting for that one special voice who fits in with his team to hit his button.
A friendly reminder, the coaches are still paired with their celebrity advisors. — Blake Shelton and Keith Urban; Jennifer Hudson and Halsey; Kelly Clarkson and Thomas Rhett; Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green. Here’s how the battles work: Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their team of artists, giving them advice, and sharing the secrets of their success along with the help from their celebrity advisers. During the battle rounds the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal battle, the coach must choose which of his/her singers will advance to the next round of competition, while the losing artist is available to be stolen by another coach. Each coach has two steals during the battle rounds.
TEAM KELLY: SARAH GRACE Vs. ERIKA ZADE — The two young females kick off the end of the Battles with “No Roots” by Alice Merton. Sarah Grace, a soul/blues singer is right at home with this song. But, Erika admittedly is out of her comfort zone with this track Kelly chose. And, that same narrative carried through the rehearsals, as well as the stage performance.
- TEAM KELLY: Sarah Grace
- STEALS: None
TEAM BLAKE: KAYLEY HILL Vs. KAMERON MARLOWE — Kayley, a singer form Nashville, who’s auditioned with Fleetwood Mac and made an impression with her original music, gives Blake serious Dolly Parton vibes. But, it was Kameron, foreshadowed underdog who won the battle!
- TEAM BLAKE: Kameron
The next three battles were only touched upon ahead of a commercial:
TEAM KELLY: Claire DeJean
TEAM J. HUD: Kennedy Holmes
TEAM ADAM: DEANDRE NICO Vs. FUNSHO — DeAndre is a serious problem. If you remember, he received an epic 4-chair turn in the auditions. But, don’t underestimate the Nigerian powerhouse, Funsho. He’s the one who mastered “Finesse” by Bruno Mars in the auditions. Like, do you know how hard it is to master a Bruno Mars song? Yup. So, we know this battle is going to be next level great. Staying on par with the level of difficulty, Adam chooses ” Can yo uStand The Rain” by Bruno Mars. Adam describes DeAndre’s voice as “commanding, with a powerful presence.” Meanwhile, “Funsho has a lot of soul and depth, richness in his voice.”
- TEAM ADAM: DeAndre Nico
- STEALS: Blake
