‘The Voice’ Battles: This SEXY Duet Gave Kelly Clarkson A Crush
Reading Time: 3 minutes
The Voice battles for Season 18 continued on Monday night. This year’s battle advisors are Bebe Rexha (Team Blake), Dua Lipa (Team Kelly), the Jonas Brothers (Team Nick), and Ella Mai (Team Legend).
This season, each coach gets one save (from their own team) and one steal (from another coach’s team) during the battles. The four saves will go into a new four-way knockout round.
This week’s Voice battles were packed with chemistry. One of the pairings prompted Kelly Clarkson to suggest the artists should date. Another one was so sexy, it had Kelly declaring she had a “musical crush” on one of the singers. Check out all of this week’s performances below.
Watch This Week’s ‘The Voice’ Battles
Jacob Daniel Murphy vs. Toneisha Harris (Team Blake)
These two performed “Good As Hell” by Lizzo, which Blake first heard last season when Gwen Stefani performed it on the show. John predicted that Toneisha could make it to the finale. Blake chose her as the winner of the battle.
Gigi Hess vs. Micah Iverson (Team Kelly)
Micah is the only male singer on Team Kelly. He teamed up with Gigi to sing Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved,” which had Kelly saying they should date. During the stage rehearsal, they actually made Kelly cry. Blake said Gigi’s notes “soared,” and Kelly complimented Micah’s falsetto. She chose Micah as the winner.
CammWess vs. Mandi Castillo (Team Legend)
This duo performed “Señorita” by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. Mandi said she wanted the performance to be “so hot,” her boyfriend would be jealous. Kelly said she has a “musical crush” on Mandi in her critique. John told Camm that he reminds him of himself. However, he chose Mandi as the winner. Kelly chose to steal Camm.
Cam Spinks vs. Kailey Abel (Team Blake)
These two artists performed “What Ifs” by Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina in The Voice battles. Blake said he thought it was a happy medium between their two styles, although Cam seemed less comfortable with it. Nevertheless, Blake chose Cam as the battle’s winner.
Anders Drerup vs. Tate Brusa (Team Nick)
These two artists performed “Circles” by Post Malone, with both of them playing guitar. During rehearsal, Nick and his brothers gave Tate advice about his changing voice. Kelly said she was “worried” about Tate being in the finale. Nick chose him as the winner of the battle, so she might want to get ready.
Darious Lyles vs. Nelson Cade III (Team Legend)
These two singers came together to perform … yes, “Come Together” by the Beatles. Nick called it a “phenomenal performance.” John said it was a difficult decision, but he chose Darious as the winner of the battle. However, he chose to save Nelson.
