'The Voice' Season 18: Mandi beats Cammwess while spicing it up with 'Senorita' and fans couldn't be happier
'The Voice' Season 18 returned with night 2 of its Battle Rounds on Monday night. Coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Nick Jonas and Blake Shelton paired their team members for an epic showdown where only one advanced to the Knockout Rounds.
The first battle of the night from Team Legend was between Cammwess and Mandi Castillo. Mentored by both John and Ella, the duo battled it out to 'Senorita' by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. During their practice session, Ella shared that Cammwess reminded her of John's voice.
Though their performance was good during the practice session, John advised them to amp their chemistry up a bit. "We want vibe between y'all. I want charm. I want sexy. I want a rapport between the two of you," John shared.
John wanted spice and that's exactly what the duo brought with their battle. Mandi's vocals were pure while Cam had a real good falsetto while performing. Nick was really impressed with their performance. Kelly shared that she had a complete crush on Mandi. Blake said that Cam sold him with his "shy but cool" personality.
"You both are fantastic singers and I really enjoy both of you so much," John shared before he could pick his winner. Making his decision, John deemed Mandi as the winner of the battle. But lucky for Cam, Kelly decided to use her only Steal and snatched Cam into her team.
Taking to Twitter post their performance, fans share their happiness and said that John made the right choice by choosing Mandi, who is a bilingual singer.

To help the coaches with the Battle Rounds, they had each brought in a mentor. Dua Lipa was the mentor for Team Kelly, Ella Mae for Team Legend, Bebe Rexha for Team Blake and The Jonas Brothers (Kevin and Joe) for Team Nick.
Though only one contestant can win the sing-off, the coaches have the chance of saving one artist from their team. They also have a chance of stealing an eliminated artist from any other team. However, each coach will get only one save and steal per season.
