Round Part 1
Last week, we filled out
our roster of 32. Now they will head into battle, as the
teams are cut into half. Who will see their dreams
shattered, and who will move one step closer to being
crowned... THE VOICE?
To recap, the teams are...
ADAM: Jeff Jenkins, Rebecca Loebe, Javier
Colon, Devon Barley, Tim Mahoney, Casey Desmond, Casey Weston, Angela
CEE-LO: Vicci Martinez, Kelsey Rey, Tje Austin, Emily Valentine, Niki Dawson, Nakia, Curtis Grimes, Tori & Taylor Thompson
CHRISTINA: Tarralyn Ramsey, Frenchie Davis, Beverly McClellan, Cherie
Oakley, Raquel Castro, Julia Eason, Justin Grennan, Lily Elise
BLAKE: Elenowen, Xenia, Patrick Thomas, Sara Oromchi, Tyler Robinson,
Serabee, Dia Frampton, Jared Blake
Now we move to the BATTLE ROUNDS. On each
team, the eight singers are to be grouped into pairs who will sing the
same song on the same stage. At the end of the round, only the four who
win their battles may move forward to the live shows.
To assist the coaches in... well,
coaching, they've brought on an adviser. Adam has brought on Maroon 5's
musical advisor Adam Blackstone. Cee-Lo will be assisted by platinum
recording artist Monica. Christina will rely on her friend, Australian
phenom Sia, and Blake has asked for the assistance of only the one and
only Reba McEntire.
The first battle pairing...
TARRALYN RAMSEY VS. FRENCHIE DAVIS
The song: "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on
It)" by Beyonce.
Cee-Lo thought that the duet was awesome.
Adam was having fun. Blake thought he was watching Rocky. But it's up to
Christina who determines who delivered the knockout blow. MOVING ON....
PATRICK THOMAS VS. TYLER ROBINSON
The song: "Burning Love" by Elvis
Just so I can say this about Tyler...
Bowties are cool. Christina thought that both singers stepped up to the
plate. Cee-Lo thought that Tyler outsang Patrick. Adam agrees with Cee-Lo.
But will Blake agree with his fellow coaches? He says that Patrick has
been spot-on every time. But MOVING ON... PATRICK!
CASEY WESTON VS. TIM MAHONEY
The song: "Leather & Lace" by Don Henley
& Stevie Nicks.
Blake calls Casey's voice "addicting",
saying that she can develop in the competition. Christina thought that
they blended very well. Cee-Lo is partial to Tim, saying that Casey
sounds like a younger Stevie Nicks. But does it sound like a winner?
MOVING ON... CASEY W!
VICCI MARTINEZ VS. NIKI DAWSON
The song: "F***in' Perfect" by Pink.
Adam calls it the best duet of the night.
Blake thinks that Cee-Lo will come to regret pairing these two against
each other, because he knows that he has to cut one. Christina was quick
to pick up on the "pretty pretty please" lyric that was a little bit...
emotive. But who is perfect enough for Cee-Lo Green? MOVING ON... VICCI!
So a quarter of the live-show equation is
determined, but we still have 12 more battles before the live shows. The
search for the Voice continues... next week.
