The Voice USA 2013 Recap: Night 2 – Battle Rounds (VIDEO)
The Battle Rounds on The Voice USA 2013 got off to a great start last night on NBC, as six battles took place on The Voice Season 5 and we still have plenty more to make out way through. This is a great round, as we see The Voice USA Season 5 coaches (Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and CeeLo Green) pit their own singers against each other and pick a winner to move on to the Knockout Rounds on The Voice 2013. Intense battles happen when you have teams filled with great singers and it is only going to continue tonight! Follow along with us during our The Voice USA 2013 Recap and see who got eliminated on The Voice 2013 tonight!
Last night on The Voice Season 5, we saw the steals come into play already and these coaches seem determined to win it all! One of those steals came during the battle between Caroline Pennell and Anthony Paul for Team CeeLo. It was a pretty good battle, besides the crazy, creepy eyes at times from Anthony. In the end, CeeLo picked Caroline, but Christina Aguilera thought Anthony Paul was too good to go home, so she used one of her steals and snatched him up for Team Christina!
More battles tonight on The Voice USA 2013, as it takes it’s new time slot for Tuesday nights at 9/8c after The Biggest Loser 2013. We’ll be back with our Live Recap soon!
WARNING: THE VOICE USA 2013 SPOILERS AHEAD!
The following post contains videos from tonight’s episode of The Voice 2013 Season 5 Battle Rounds. Don’t want to see them yet or see who went home on The Voice USA Season 5 tonight, then don’t look ahead!!!
Here we go…
Team Christina: Jacob Poole vs. Matthew Schuler
Song: “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark” by Fall Out Boy
Jacob grew up as a preacher’s son and everyone thought he would follow in his footsteps. Matthew had all the coaches fighting for him, so will he prove them all right tonight? Christina thinks this song is perfect for a battle and is surprised at how good Jacob sounds and thinks he picked a bad song in the blind auditions and he could have had more chairs turned around. Matthew seems to be doing his own thing during these rehearsals and he might be falling behind Jacob before the battle. This was a great battle and both did excellent. Matthew comes off as a little cocky, but he had a great performance and I think he takes this one. What do you think? Christina said they both stayed consistent and a lot to focus on and they did great. She picks Matthew as the winner and no one steals Jacob, so he heads home!
Team CeeLo: Kat Robichaud vs. R. Anthony
Song: “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith
Kat is one of those singers on The Voice USA 2013 that I am excited to see more of, so bring on this battle. CeeLo put them together because they are total opposites, but have such power. Miguel said he knows R. Anthony can do the runs, but he wants to see more. They want that raspiness in Kat’s voice. CeeLo wants them both to be emotionally connected to the song. They both have good performances, but there is something about Kat that draws me in and I love her. I think she was better and is the winner of this battle. Adam said he was the only one who didn’t turn around for her during the blind auditions and he regrets that. CeeLo picks Kat as the winner! No one steals R. Anthony and he is eliminated.
Some quick results on The Voice USA Season 5 Battle Rounds:
- Team CeeLo - Cole Vosbury beat Lupe Carroll
- Team Blake - E.G. Daily beat Sam Cerniglia
- Team Adam - Ashley DuBose beat Justin Blake
Team Blake: Monika Leigh vs. Ray Boudreaux
Song: “Some Kind Of Wonderful” by Grand Funk Railroad
These are two soulful, bluesy singers and both weird singers for Team Blake on The Voice 2013. Blake said he paired them because they have the blues he wishes he had and thinks this will be fun. Blake and Cher think that Ray has more in him and need to push himself more. Monika seems to be all over the place and Cher calls her out on it. Cher ain’t messing around, huh? This is another battle of two great singers and both bring strong voices. I think Monika was a little better and I would pick her. Who would you pick? Blake picks Ray as the winner! Monika is giving her goodbye speech, but then CeeLo hits his steal button and she joins Team CeeLo!
