It’s finally time for the Battle Rounds on The Voice season 19. After some stellar Blind Auditions, each coach has 10 artists on their teams. The artists will be going head to head and one of them will be declared the winner of each battle.
‘The Voice’ Coaches And Artists Are Gearing Up For The Battle Rounds
Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton and John Legend are ready to mentor their teams and help move them forward in the competition. Each coach is allowed two steals during the Battle Rounds so they can add a contestant who was not chosen by their coach on their teams. The coaches also get the chance to save one of their own artists who does not win a battle. Julia Michaels, Leon Bridges, Miguel and Kane Brown will be joining The Voice as Battle Advisors this season. Who is going to face off during the Battle Rounds?
