I’m not going to lie, I breathed a sigh of relief when I read that The Voice would only be an hour tonight. I much prefer a shorter episode.
Team Cee Lo: Daniel Rosa vs. Alexis Marceaux singing “Whataya Want From Me”
An Adam Lambert song? For these two? An interesting choice on Cee Lo’s part, and one that I don’t think worked out. The song didn’t suit either of them, and I didn’t enjoy it. Overall, I think Alexis is a stronger singer, but the performance didn’t do anyone any favors. Winner: Daniel Rosa
Team Adam: Brandon Mahone vs. Nicole Nelson singing “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”
Adam usually chooses modern songs, so it was interesting to see him go so old school. Nicole is a very strong singer, and I think that definitely intimidated Brandon. It was a bit of an uneven match-up, as though Adam knew he’d keep Nicole no matter what and paired her with one of the weaker people on his team. Brandon is cute and a good singer, and he definitely held his own. It was a fantastic duet, but had to go to Nicole. Winner: Nicole Nelson
Team Christina: MarissaAnn vs. Devyn DeLoera singing “Free Your Mind”
This is a great song, but I was worried it was a bit beyond the two artists Christina was working with – both vocally and in grittiness. The rehearsals impressed me though, and I was excited for the real duel. It got kind of messy in parts because each girl was trying so hard to outsing the other, but in the end I preferred Devyn by a smidge. Winner: Devyn DeLoera
We have a steal! I wasn’t surprised to see Blake take MarissaAnn for his own team.
Team Blake chose Cassadee Pope over Ryan Jirovec, and Team Adam chose Joe Kirkland over Samuel Mouton. I’m annoyed that we didn’t get to see those battles, but tomorrow night is the last battle round and I am excited to move on. What did you guys think of tonight’s episode?
