NBCThe Voice aired its fourth and final night of the Battle Rounds on Tuesday. Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Pharrell Williams each lost an artist, though Pharrell was able to use his final steal to take a singer from Blake’s team.
Blake, Christina, Pharrell and Adam Levine now have eight artists each on his or her respective team.
Here’s a rundown of what happened on the one-hour episode:
Christina decided to test Jeremy Gaynor and Rob Taylor by assigning the two artists “Animals,” by Adam’s band Maroon 5. They added their own soulful spin to the current pop hit. Adviser Nick Jonas noted that both men did a good job of studying the song and making it their own.
Pharrell called it a good song choice to get Jeremy and Rob out of their comfort zone. Naturally, Adam agreed. Adam said performing the song is a pain in the you-know-what for him because it challenges his range. Christina named Rob the winner of the battle. It was the end of the road for Jeremy.
High school senior Noelle Bybee was matched up with farm kid Sawyer Fredericks by their coach, Pharrell. They took on “Have You Ever Seen the Rain,” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Adviser Lionel Richie pushed them to work together during the performance.
Blake said he could detect a country sound in Noelle’s voice, but he also praised Sawyer. Christina referred to Noelle as an angel, while also complimenting Sawyer on his talent. Pharrell commended Sawyer for embracing his partner to make the duet a good one. Sawyer moves on in the competition, while Noelle was eliminated.
At this point in the episode, the show quickly recapped three battles. Koryn Hawthorne defeated Team Christina teammate Vance Smith; Brooke Adee triumphed over fellow Team Blake artist Bay Brooks; and Team Adam’s Lexi Dávila was named the winner over Bren’nae DeBarge.
The final battle pit Corey Kent White against Jacob Rummell for Team Blake. They received assistance from adviser Meghan Trainor as they rehearsed Hunter Hayes‘ “I Want Crazy.”
Both Christina and Pharrell suggested to Blake that he choose Corey. Adam said Jacob adjusted to the song, and would name him the winner because of it. Blake settled on Corey, and Pharrell used his final steal on Jacob.
