The Battle Rounds were over. But this season, we're going to have another Battle Rounds. Instead of Knockout Rounds, the producer chose to have Battle Rounds Part 2. Honestly, I prefer the Knockout Rounds more because I want to judge them on their solo performance instead of another duet performance. No matter what, here are the current team so far;
Battle Winners: Sam Behymer, Delvin Choice, Josh Kaufman, Christina Grimmie, Dawn & Hawkes & Kat Perkins.
~ We didn't get to see full battle from Christina but I still think she's a frontrunner along with Josh and Dawn & Hawkes. Not really a fan of Delvin & Kat but Sam, she really surprised me in her battle. She defeated a 4-chairs artist, Cary Laine. I thought Cary is going to defeat her easily.
Stolen: Jake Barker & Brittnee Camille
~ Adam was the first coach to use both of his steals and I think he stole 2 strong artist. Jake is such a good artist. Like I said before, I really like his tone. And Brittnee, she improved from her audition.
Top 4 Prediction (Team Adam):
Christina Grimmie, Josh Kaufman, Jake Barker and Dawn & Hawkes
Battle Winners: Audra McLaughlin, Megan Ruger, Ryan White Maloney, Kaleigh Glanton, Sisaundra Lewis & Jake Worthington
~ Blake also has a strong team this season. I love the diversity in Blake's team this season. I love Sisaundra. Megan has a great rock tone. I also like Jake W. I'm torn between Audra & Kaleigh. I think both artist are too similar and only one of them will make it to the Playoffs. Not really a fan of Ryan.
Stolen: Tess Boyer & Biff Gore
~ I remember Tess' audition even though it was montaged because she sang Wings from Little Mix and when she was paired with the one with the strongest audition this cycle, Bria Kelly, I thought she was done but to me actually she slayed Bria. I totally get why Usher picked Bria so I'm really happy that Blake chose to steal Tess. She deserved that. However Blake kinda wasted his steal on Biff. I don't get that.
Top 4 Prediction (Team Blake):
Sisaundra Lewis, Jake Worthington, Tess Boyer & Audra McLaughlin
Battle Winners: Ddendyl, Emily B, Deja Hall, Kristen Merlin, Dani Moz & Clarissa Serna.
~ Clarissa is definitely Shakira's strongest chance to win The Voice. But Deja also has some potential. The other 4 winners weren't really memorable for me. They were good but that's it. Nothing special.
Stolen: Josh Murley & Patrick Thompson
~ I don't know why but I think Shakira wasted both of her steals this season. I don't think any of the stolen artist from her team could win this season
Top 4 Prediction (Team Shakira):
Clarissa Serna, Deja Hall, Kristen Merlin & Patrick Thompson.
Battle Winners: Melissa Jimenez, Stevie Jo, Bria Kelly, Morgan Wallen, TJ Wilkins & Madilyn Paige.
~ Usher clearly has strong team this season. Out of the 8 stolen artists, half of them came from Team Usher. But Usher still has strong artist in his team. I love Melissa, Bria, Stevie & Madilyn. Not really a fan of TJ and I still want to know more about Morgan. He can be a surprise.
Stolen: Music Box & Cierra Mickens
~ Usher took such a long time to steal his first artist then he chose to sing Music Box? I was like that his special one that he's been waiting. But Usher redeemed himself when he stole Cierra who I think should win over Emily B.
Top 4 Prediction (Team Usher):
Bria Kelly, Melissa Jimenez, Stevie Jo & Madilyn Paige
I can't wait to see the next Battle. I hope it's worth it for the producer to change the format this season.
