‘The Voice’ Season 15 Battle Round Preview and Pairings


Reading Time: 3 minutes


The Battles on The Voice kicked off last night with a bang! We’ve already seen two steals and three epic battles. And there’s plenty more where that came from! New videos released show the Battle Round pairings. A lot of fan favorites are still coming up, like Kennedy Holmes, OneUp, and Kirk Jay. But they’ll all be going head-to-head for a spot in the Knockouts! 

Let’s take a look at what’s to come and the Battle Round pairings!


Team Adam

We’ll start it off with Team Adam and his battles adviser, CeeLo Green. The video starts with CeeLo and Adam talking about how good of friends they are. Then, each contestant pair talked about when they first met their battle partner. CeeLo also shared how he and Adam met in Hollywood, right after Maroon 5 hit it big. First impressions are definitely telling! Each contestant then went into things their partners don’t know about them before complimenting Team Adam as a whole.

Here are the Team Adam Battle Round pairings:

  • Jake Wells vs. Natalie Brady
  • DeAndre Nico vs. Funsho
  • Anthony Arya vs. Steve Memmolo
  • Foushee vs. RADHA
  • Reagan Strange vs. Emily Hough
  • Jarred Matthew vs. Tyke James


Team Kelly

Kelly talks about how much she likes Thomas Rhett at the beginning of this video. He is definitely a great personality and talent for the show! Thomas also brags about how Kelly treats her team so well. My favorite moment is watching OneUp teach Kymberli to dance. Oh and that horse noise Chevel can make. Like what? Actually so good. But not as good? Claire “rapping” while Josh beatboxed. The video ends with praises all around for coach Kelly.

This is the breakdown of Team Kelly’s Battle Round pairings:

  • Cody Ray Raymond vs. SandyRedd
  • Abby Cates vs. Delaney Silvernell
  • Claire DeJean vs. Josh Davis
  • OneUp vs. Kymberli Joye
  • Erika Zade vs. Sarah Grace
  • Mikele Buck vs. Chevel Shepherd


Team JHud

To start, Halsey talks about JHud‘s “auntie” coaching style, where she tells artists how it is, but does so lovingly. The contestant pairs then talk about their thoughts when they first met their battle partner. Then it was time for the JHud praise! Everyone loves her vibe and how multi-talented she is. That definitely translates to the show too!

Team Jennifer’s Battle Round pairings are looking like this:

  • Colton Smith vs. Patrique Fortson
  • Natasia GreyCloud vs. Mike Parker
  • Kennedy Holmes vs. Lela
  • Tyshawn Colquitt vs. Zaxai
  • Audri Bartholomew vs. MaKenzie Thomas
  • Franc West vs. Matt Johnson


Team Blake

In true Blake fashion, he kicks the video off by rambling on about how “smart” his battles adviser Keith Urban is. “It’s refreshing,” he comments after name dropping country artists. Oh Blake! All the contestants then talk about how they met their battle partner, including Michael and Joey, who have known each other for eight years. Blake and Keith reminisce about when they first met too (and Blake had long hair!). The contestants then laugh about how tall Blake is. They close it out by describing Team Blake as “stacked” and “bearded.” Sounds about right!

The Battle Round pairings for Team Blake are these:

  • Michael Lee vs. Joey Green
  • Kirk Jay vs. Caeland Garner
  • Keith Paluso vs. Dave Fenley
  • Katrina Cain vs. Rachel Messer
  • Mercedes Ferreira-Dias vs. Chris Kroeze
  • Kayley Hill vs. Kameron Marlowe
