Now Kylee and Mary Kate are going up against each other in a Battle to Taylor Swift’s song “Anti-Hero.” In the show’s early release clip, the two singers perform a slowed-down version of the hit song. Their voices blend beautifully together, with each of them getting a chance to shine.
What Did the Coaches Think of Their Performance?
Niall Horan complimented Kylee and Mary Kate’s take on Swift’s song, saying they “made it completely your own.” He added that Shelton has “one hell of a choice to make here.” However, he said that he was leaning toward Mary Kate as the Battle’s winner.
Chance the Rapper told the singers that it “seems like y’all grew up together or something, ’cause it was so in sync.” He suggested that they should record a cover together. Chance said that he would choose Kylee as the winner, adding she could win the whole show.
Shelton said he was dreading this Battle, telling the singers that it’s “extra tough” since they’ve grown so close. We’ll have to wait until Tuesday’s new episode at 9/8c on NBC to find out which of the two artists Shelton chose as the winner.
