I really enjoyed this episode of The Voice tonight. There were a lot of artists that got a chance to shine that we really haven’t heard to much from. Of course I disagree with some of the decisions, but that is what makes this show so great. Again, all of the artists are awesome but let’s get into it!
Team Adam – Pip and Nathan Parrett singing Trouble
For Pip’s practice session, he asked Alanis Morissette and Adam if he should take it up a little bit and they said he should try to stay true to the song as much as possible. I feel that is pretty bad advice because everyone loves when they make the song their own. For Nathan’s they suggested he should show more confidence. During the battle, Pip seemed on point to me. His voice was perfect. Nathan was putting up a good fight and this is the first time we really get to see him shine. Pip seemed more aggressive. I wonder if Cee Lo will pick Pip.
Xtina: Xtina didn’t really pick but they ended on a positive for Nathan
Cee Lo: Nathan
Adam has final choice. Adam picks Pip.
Team Cee Lo – Erin Martin and The Shields Brothers singing What’s Love Got To Do With It
Babyface made me laugh so much. He said the first run was challenging reminding him of Wayne’s World. Erin had a difficult time as well with Ne-Yo. He said he didn’t believe her when she sang. They came down on her. They wanted her to be more than just a pretty face. Fav Quote of the night: Power is not talent. Its just LOUD. So for the battle, Erin had some interesting notes. She looked sexy as hell. She was out there, but I think she could have a career. The Shields Brothers had some dope moments. I was impressed. I enjoyed their harmonies. Erin’s voice was really different and she had some squeals that I wasn’t too keen on. But I wouldn’t mind hearing her hear other things.
Adam: undecided but not in Erin’s favor
Xtina: The Shields Brothers
Cee Lo amazingly picked Erin. That totally blew me away. I really feel that The Shields Brothers really did better.
Team Xtina – Ashley vs Jonathas singing No Air
This is the first time we get to see Ashley perform. Everyone knows I am already rooting for Jonathas (since he is representing Austin, Tx as was the beautiful Lex Land) Ashley has a really beautiful voice and better voice. Xtina said because Jonathas sounds so much like Chris Brown and Usher, he needs to work on making it his own. Lionel told him not to get out of character. Jonathas really had a good hold on this song. Ashley sounded good, but I really felt Jonathas had this battle.
Cee Lo: Ashley
The final pick goes with Xtina. In the end she went with Ashley.
Team Blake – Jermaine Paul and AlyX singing Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car
I am rooting for Jermaine in this Battle. I think its cool that he was a background singer, but now wants to step out into the spotlight. He has a really cool voice too. He was very cocky in the first episode. Now he seems a little bit more humble. Alyx is someone who I haven’t heard too much from. But when she was practicing with Miranda and Blake she impressed me. Jermaine started off the song really strong. This song seemed to be in her low register and she doesn’t really have many moments to shine in this song. I feel like this song is more tailored to him. Which, since I am rooting for him now, its okay.
Cee Lo: Jermaine
The final pick goes to Blake and he goes with Jermaine.
Team Adam – Katrina Parker and Angel Taylor singing Bleeding Love
Hearing this pairing and the song I automatically think its tailored to Angel, which could work out negatively for her. I always feel when a white person does an R&B song making it their own, it can be really special. Angel has a beautiful voice but so does Katrina. I love Katrina’s voice and I am rooting for her, but I also don’t want Angel to go home. Katrina started the battle, and she immediately sounded like Adele. Angel has a really great tone and she seems very unique. Not the typical R&B chick.
Cee Lo: Katrina
The final pick goes to Adam and he seemed to look like he had difficulty making the decision. In the end he goes with Katrina.
Team Blake – Gwen Sebastian and Erin Willett singing We Belong
This was an incredibly emotional battle. Gwen impressed me with her Blind Audition so I know that she would be a great in this song. Erin also has an amazing voice and such a beautiful story. Her father wasn’t given very long to live: 24 hours. And when Blake said he understood what she was going through because his father passed away recently. Gwen started off really nice, but when Erin came in her voice pulled me in. She has a really beautiful tone. I just noticed Gwen looks like Robyn, the singer.
Cee Lo: Gwen
Final pick goes to Blake. He was really impressed with these girls. He said he wished it wasn’t that good. But in the end the winner of the battle was Erin.
Any thoughts on tonight’s episode?
