Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine didn't really have any hard decisions to make this week. Each pairing had a very strong contestant and a weaker one. I look forward to next week's round, because the previews show some "very hesitant" judges not wanting to pick their winner. Could be interesting. If you missed Battle Week - Round 1 - click here.
In the following video, Tje Austin and Nakia battle it out, singing, "Closer" by Ne-Yo
Nakia knocks it out of the ballpark. At first I thought Tje was going to take it home. But Nakia's voice is so damn powerful. He had me in his pocket the moment he belted out the first words. My fingers were crossed and Cee Lo agreed! I'm 4-1 counting last week's results.
In the following video, Elenowen and Jared Blake battle it out, singing, "Ain’t No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrell
There wasn't no competition here, Jared had this in the bag, hands down. He felt the couple were at an advantage, because there were 2 of them, but I disagreed with him, and agreed with Blake Jackson on this one. 5-1
In the following video, Angela Wolff and Javier Colon battle it out, singing, "Stand By Me" by Ben E. King
My favorite performance of the night. Javier took this one home, and rightly so. His voice rocks. Angela held her own, and she did amazingly well, but Javier outshined her in every aspect of their performance. They did sound great together though. Adam Levine seemed to agree. 6-1.
In the following video, Beverly McClellan and Justin Grennan battle it out, singing, "Baba O'Riley" by The Who
Beverly was the bomb. She showed her strength and absolutely took this home. She showed great desire and heart was in her performance. I felt Justin lost his pitch several times and kinda floundered towards the end. 7-1
I ended week two of the Battle Rounds and stand with a 7-1 record! Woohoo!!
