'The Voice' Recap: Battle Rounds Part 2 Adam Steals Brittnee Camelle From Team Usher, Caleb Elder Is Sent Home
Adam Levine stole Brittnee Camelle from Team Usher and Delvin Choice, Ddendyl and more moved forward on The Voice battle rounds part 2.
First in the hot seat was Shakira, who pit Clarissa Serna against Jeremy Briggs. The rockers were well matched singing “Cold as Ice” by Foreigner. Shakira wanted Clarissa and Jeremy to sing together, instead of against each other, telling them that while this is a competition, they needed to be able to at least nail the harmonies if they wanted to give a good performance. The coaches weren’t sure who to pick as their choice for the winner, Blake went with Clarissa, but Usher supported Jeremy. Shakira ended up going with who she thought she could help more, and that made Clarissa the winner of the battle, and Jeremy was sent home.
Caleb Elder and Delvin Choice were up next from Team Adam, singing “The Man” by Aloe Blacc. Adam’s decision to give the two young men Blacc’s song raised the stakes immensely for the singers, as Blacc is currently acting as Team Adam’s mentor. Adam wasn’t too confident during the second rehearsal. After the underwhelming battle, Usher throws his support over to Delvin, and, in the end, Adam agrees, sending Caleb home.
What followed was a montage of three battles viewers will never get to see in full. From Team Blake Shelton, Megan Ruger beat out Ria Eaton. Shakira’s second battle of the night saw Ddendyl move forward and sent Lindsay Pagano home. And Usher sent the identical twin duo, Brothers Walker, home in favor of Morgan Wallen.
The final full battle to air was Team Usher’s Brittnee Camelle against Melissa Jimenez. The singers battled with Melanie Fiona’s “Give It To Me Right.” Both Brittnee and Melissa deliver smooth pop vocals, and their similarity in style makes the choice a difficult one for Usher, who wishes he could keep them both. Usher declares Melissa the winner, but Adam and Shakira both press their buttons to steal Brittnee. After some campaigning, Brittnee transfers over to Team Adam.
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
