The battle rounds continue on 'The Voice' season 15 with coaches Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine pairing artists for a head-to-head duet
The battle rounds continue on 'The Voice' season 15 next week with coaches Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine pairing artists from their teams for a head-to-head duet. The winner of the battle round automatically advances to the knock out round. Each coach also gets two steals - an opportunity to choose a contestant who has been eliminated from the battle round.
They also have celebrity mentors to assist them in coaching the contestants for the battle rounds. Shelton picked Keith Urban, Clarkson picked Thomas Rhett, Hudson picked Halsey and Levine picked CeeLo Green. Following Monday's battle round, that saw Hudson steal singer Sandy Redd after she was eliminated, on Tuesday we witnessed two more steals during the battle. Here's the list of singers who performed on Tuesday and who won.
Team Kelly: Kymberli Joye Vs OneUp (the duo)
The first battle was from Clarkson's team, she paired the season's duo, OneUp with Kymberli. She chose Joye to go against OneUp because of her strong voice. They performed a duet of 'Mercy' by Shawn Mendes. During their rehearsal, Rhett called it 'perfect' which is a term he apparently doesn't use that often. During the final performance, they delivered something quite different to the song, bringing in complex harmonies. But in the end, there can be only one winner, and Joye's voice overpowered the mixed-race gay couple's voice. Clarkson ended up choosing Joye and eliminated the duo and sadly they were no steals for them.
Team Adam: Anthony Arya vs. Steve Memmolo
Following the trio's performance, Arya and Memmolo from Levine's team were next. Singing a slow version of 'Amie' by Pure Prarie League, both artists sounded great during the rehearsal. During the battle, the singers gave it their best, making it an even performance. Though Levine admitted that Arya had something interesting about his voice, he chose to go with Memmolo. However, all was not lost for Arya because Hudson came to the rescue by pressing her buzzer and stealing Arya into her team.
TEAM Levine: Jarred Matthew vs. Tyke James
In a short battle, next up to perform was Jarred Matthew and Tyke James from Levine's team again. The two singers who are quite opposite from each other in terms of music style performed a duet of Billy Joel's 'She’s Always a Woman.' After their performance, Levine ended up choosing James and eliminated Matthew, sadly Matthew didn't have any steals, so the battle round performance was his last on the show.
TEAM Blake: Chris Kroeze vs. Mercedes Ferreira-Dias
The next singers up for battle were from Shelton's team. He chose Chris Kroeze and Mercedes Ferreira-Dias to go up against each other in the duet. He chose 'Back in the High Life Again' by Steve Winwood. Urban who was the mentor for Shelton's team was quite impressed with the singers' performance during their rehearsals. They gave their best performance in the battle and sounded strong. After the battle, Shelton ended up choosing Kroeze and Ferreira-Dias was eliminated and just like Matthew, she didn't manage to get any steals for her performance. So she was also sent home.
TEAM Blake: Rachel Messer vs. Katrina Cain
Both Levine and Shelton had two battles from their teams on Tuesday. Rachel Messer and Katrina Cain were second to perform their duet from Shelton's team. He chose 'Angel' by Sarah McLachlin for them to perform because it is a song that fits perfectly in the middle of both their voices. By the end of the battle, Cain came to be the strongest among the two and she was chosen as the winner by Shelton because her performance was something one just "couldn't fake". Messer was sent home with no steal.
TEAM J Hud: Mike Parker vs. Natasha Greycloud
The last duet of the battle was from Hudson. She chose Mike Parker and Natasha Greycloud to battle it out in a duet of John Mayer's 'Gravity' as she wanted to bring the soul of them. Though both of them had their minus points during their rehearsals, by the time they hit the stage it was a whole different story. Both of them gave it their best and received praise from all the judges. But, there can be only one winner, so Hudson ended up choosing Parker as the winner. However, Clarkson swooped in and stole Greycloud into her team.
