Woo Hoo! It’s the fourth night of battle rounds on the third season of NBC‘s The Voice, which pits singer against singer in sing-offs. Who’s going to emerge victorious tonight? Who is going to be packing it up after the show? How many saves will be used tonight? Read on past the jump and find out!
Team Blake is up first-Liz Davis and Nicole Johnson singing Miranda Lambert’s “Baggage Claim”. Blake’s girls each struggled with individual issues during practice-Liz with diction and Nicole with pitch. On stage, the girls look tremendous. With family and friends looking on, the duo start the battle. Liz and Nicole rock the hit, hitting sky high notes with precision. Adam sided with Nicole, and the other judges were undecided, until Blake weighs in. Blake pointed out that Liz looked a little laid back on stage, and that Nicole seemed out of breath in spots. Ultimately, Blake chooses Liz, due to her previous experience on stage, and her ability to keep her breath throughout the song. Unfortunately, no steals were used for Nicole, and Nicole sheds some tears as she walks off stage. She leaves knowing she did the best she could, and Blake, being such a sweetheart, leaves the stage and comes back to hug her and say goodbye.
Team Adam is up next-Alessandra Guercio and Kayla Nevarez. They’re performing Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake”. As they practice, Mary J. Blige tells Alessandra to loosen it up, and Adam tells Kayla to watch her pitch as she’s sounding sharp during the chorus. The girls belt it out to a standing ovation from the crowd. All of the judges loved each girl’s performance. Cee Lo sided with Alessandra. It came down to Adam siding with Kayla. She’s on to the knockout round! Alessandra was a wonderful runner-up, and Christina decided to use her steal to save her in order to help her with her self-confidence!
Team CeeLo is at bat-Emily Earle and MacKenzie Bourg. “Good Time” by Owl City was the song choice. They didn’t show much from practice, but they did take away MacKenzie’s guitar-which he admitted was his crutch. Emily and MacKenzie both come on stage looking nervous, but when the music hits, MacKenzie and Emily both own the stage and seem to be having fun. Adam sensed that the energy was a little uncomfortable, and weighed with Emily. Blake thought MacKenzie sounded squeaky, and said that Emily wasn’t really the right voice for that song, but thought she did better than Mackenzie. Christina, however, liked MacKenzie more. CeeLo ultimately decided on announcing MacKenzie the victor.
We saw a teeny tiny clip of Beat Frequency going up against Laura Vivas on Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” and we see Latin pop singer Laura emerge victorious. It looks like an AWESOME battle, and we’re bummed it didn’t make it in.
Unfortunately, at this point the presidential debate decided to cut in! We’re all left wondering what happened with Team Christina! I guess we’ll see next week! What do you think happened?
