Tuesday was the final night of the Battle Rounds on The Voice (Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CTV) and with Blake Shelton as the only coach left with a steal, you better believe that the eliminating process for Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus and Adam Levine just got way, way tougher.
With only one steal left, the singers in the final few performance slots of the Battle Round are at a disadvantage and know it. While that’s terrible for them, it means incredible performances for us.
Singers: Adam Cunningham vs. Natalie Stovall
Thanks to Rascall Flats, we found out that Natalie was in a group called The Raging Idiots, which at first sounded like a brutal insult from the country band. Instead it’s just a brutal band name. We also found out that according to Rascall Flatts, Adam is the best hugger of the competition. The more you know. Blake wishes he had Adam’s gravely voice. Adam wishes he had Blake’s height. I kinda wanna play the fiddle now thanks to Natalie. The grass is always greener on The Voice.
Singers: Eric Lyn vs. Ignatious Carmouche
Ignatious was last year’s winner of the Snap Chat singing contest on The Voice, which makes him seem like a front runner going into this battle. Plus, his voice is NUTS. D’angelo 2.0 for real. The pair together was enough to get Kelly Rowland dancing during a slow ballad. Why isn’t Kelly Rowland a full time coach? She’s so entertaining and there’s always a chance Beyonce will drop by. In the end, Jennifer chose Eric, a decision that shocked us the most on this season of the Battle Rounds. Really? Not Ignatious? Really?
Singers: Ashland Craft vs. Megan Rose
Thanks to adviser Billy Ray Cyrus, we heard the family story of the time 8-year-old Miley Cyrus asked Waylon Jennings to teach her how to play “Good Hearted Woman” on the guitar. So, the Cyrus house was pretty freaking cool. Ashland and Megan are Miley’s two country singers, which made the pair an obvious choice. Ashland is the honky tonk singer who performs nightly in a dive bar and while we would never recommend spending your day job inhaling second hand smoke, it’s given her a beautiful and gritty voice. We weren’t expecting too much from Cali singer Megan Rose, but damn, there must be some honky tonk bars in San Francisco. Since it was the final performance of the night and both singers are country artists, it wasn’t a huge surprise that Blake used his final steal for Megan, but that didn’t stop us from shedding a tear or two. Country music is emotional, y’all!
Winner: Ashland (Megan stolen by Team Blake)
