Join us while we dish about the last of the battle rounds on our cheesy fun show, The Voice!

Warning: This live blog may be bad. I’m having some issues.

Adriana Louise vs Jordan Pruett. Team Xtina. They are nervous when meeting with Billie Joe and Xtina. She chooses “Hot and Cold” by Katy Perry. Billie Joe wants them to find the balance between a duet and a battle. Xtina wants Jordan to take more risks. She wants them both to be more aggressive. She wants them to exude power and presence. She thinks it’s neck and neck at the last rehearsal. Commercial break. We’re back. Does swinging your hair make you a pop star? Just wondering. I like the Adriana better than the Disney chick. The hand clapping above the head annoys. Can y’all tell I’m in a bad mood. I say get rid of both of them. Xtina looks happy. Cee-lo thought it was great. I was annoyed. He goes with Adriana. Adam says the battle was so even and they are equally good. He thought Jordan peaked at the end, so chooses her. Blake thinks Jordan is unique and picks her. Xtina picks Adriana. I think Xtina is the only one who has a steal left, so no luck for Jordan.

Blake and Buble welcome Kelly Crapa vs. Michaela Page. Country girl vs. rocker. Micheala loves Buble. Does she know he’s an asshat? They are doing Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You.” Blake thinks Micheala oversings. Of course. Rocker chick is fodder. Kelly needs more attitude, they say. Blake says the battle will come down to which one is most seasoned since they are both teens. Now I’m not sure he’ll choose the country girl. Guess we will see after the break. These girls are better than first two from Team Xtina. Xtina is taken aback –she thought a brawl would break out. She likes Michaela better. Cee-lo thinks Kelly will shine on a different song. He says it’s a tie. Adam thinks it was awesome and the cutest thing he has ever seen. He’s stumped. Blake praises Kelly and chooses Michaela because she has more of an edge.

Avery vs. Chevonne . Team Cee-loo. “Titanium.” Youth vs. Experience. Avery is worried after hearing her sing. Cee-lo thinks he needs to loosen up. Final rehearsal he brings it. Now for the battle. Chevonne loves Avery but isn’t going home, she claims. Off to a commercial. This is the end of the night so we know Xtina will steal one of them. Not a great way to build suspense. Here we go. Both are talented. I think I’d pick Chevonne. Damn. Avery can dance. Oh yeah, we knew that. I would still pick Chevonne. Let’s see who Cee-lo picks and Xtina steals. Adam was engaged. But he thinks Avery took it hands down. Blake thinks she was great, but agrees with Adam. Xtina thinks Chevonne’s stage presence was amazing and hit some great notes. Cee-lo picks Avery. Xtina steals Chevonne! We don’t have any time left, duh. I know it was pre-recorded, so who know what order it was decided.

It’s a wrap. Hope y’all enjoyed the show. Post your thoughts in comments.

    And we are constantly reminded of the cheesiness by the giant hand holding the mic onstage. lol

  • BrightLights

    I like this blonde girl. The brunette’s pitch is all over the place, but the blonde seems like she could be just about the whole package.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    I agree! But…again…look what happened!! Huh?

  • BrightLights

    Maybe their mix is off in the house. That’s the only way I can think that that would have sounded like an “even match.” We all know Christina likes screamers, but I thought the blonde girl was just so promising.

    I liked the battle with the Joan Jett’s song. They are like they will physically fight. And this song is always good to hear.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Wow. Blake chose the rocker. I guess that we should have guessed by the song choice.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I think that the guy in this next battle has a good chance to win this year.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    She was better—but Blake, generally, doesn’t care abotu that. 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Buble’s an “asshat”? Really? What has he done/said? I don’t follow him so I really have no idea.

  • BrightLights

    This Chevonne girl seems like she teeters on the edge between brilliance and trainwreck when she tries to belt a higher note. We’ll see how this goes.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Given that this is the last battle (by the time left), I think that Cee Lo chooses Avery, and then Christina “steals” Chevonne.

  • http://twitter.com/cara_lee pj

     I don’t follow him but the gossip sites claim he is a womanizing cheater.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I think that Chevonne is very good, but Avery is pretty amazing IMO. I think that he really has “it”.

  • BrightLights

    Straight up hot mess.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    This battle made me laugh for some reason. LOL

  • OffLeash

    Avery is so winning this season. Butter smooth voice. Great performance skills. Wow. 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Called it! lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Avery vs. Daniel?  WTF?

  • bahogbugan_simj

    aLOL Daniel will be eaten alive

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    I thought the knockout was going to be one on one, not team up against people again. What’s the point? This show is too much about pitting contestants against one another. I would love it more if there was say Xtina’s contestant against someone from Blake’s team.

  • BrightLights

    Q: How do you spell “cannon fodder”?
    A: D-A-N-I-E-L

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Chevonne’s singing is all over the place, her performance too, but somehow I like it. LOL 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yes, but I was hoping for a pairing for Daniel where he wouldn’t end up looking really bad.

  • bahogbugan_simj

    i was expecting he would be paired with MacKenzie, Diego, Cody or Caitlin

  • OffLeash

    I don’t think Daniel will look bad because he’s a very good singer, but it’ll be obvious that Avery’s the total package and pwns all the contestants. So for Daniel, losing to the future winner *wink, wink* is nothing to be ashamed of. ;)

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Well, I don’t agree that Daniel is a very good singer because I think that he’s gotten this far because of his “redemption” story, not his talent. I see your point though about him losing to the eventual winner. lol

  • http://twitter.com/HighTensions Jake Williams

    horrible cover of Titanium. send them both home.

  • http://twitter.com/tukicarreno Tuki

    The knockout rounds are basically two contestants from the same team against one another but instead of singing a duet they each sing their own song and then the coach chooses.
    I think it would be better to have all 10 perform and then each coach chooses the best 5. But oh well…

  • kmd23

     I am a fan of Chevonne. Good voice and very entertaining.

  • OffLeash

    You could be right about the redemption arc making him ~look like a better singer than he is lol. Truth is, there was no way he was gonna win. As shallow as it sounds ~and is, now that most of the contestants left are those with the best voices, the rest of their “package” will make a difference. Not to mention Daniel lacks performing skills anyway. 

  • bahogbugan_simj

    i have to admit that the battle round Titanium cover was a bit oversung though.  Avery has some real promise but i would like CeeLo to kick a couple of bad habits out from Avery

    i prefer this Titanium cover from The Voice of Denmark blind audition.  just pure singing

    It’s like the theme of The Voice is to battle against your teammates until the very end. I have some mix feelings about that. I would love if the teams faced one another than have their teammates always face off.  

  • verov

    Completely agree. They should just dispense with the term ‘team’ altogether unless they start actually facing the other ‘teams’ some time before the unlikely-to-be-remotely-grand finale.

  • verov

     ”I would like Cee Lo to kick a couple of bad habits out from Avery.”

    That totally overdone vibrato perhaps? He’s obviously got a good voice, but it sounds like he’s gargling-while-singing half the time.

  • bahogbugan_simj

    a bit of vibrato i can handle, but a strong vibrato coupled with melisma can be too much

  • http://twitter.com/ronnydias Ronny Dias

     It looks as though they’re simply adding this knockout round as a
    response to the “We had no time at all to bond with contestants”
    comments from previous seasons.
    Anyhow, it’s gonna be nice in order to increase the younger ones’ confidence. They really could use some encouragement!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NDYOWBIIPZU6PBRHGOPT2ZZJXQ sweetmm

    So who ends with the majority of hot guys ;)

  • Christopher Auyeung

    Yeah Jordan was much better in that battle I thought. Bummed she went home. Lots of pop potential in that one, and a pretty good voice to boot.

    I like to say that on The Voice, your teammates are your enemies until there are no enemies left.

    By that, I mean a singer only competes against his or her own teammates until one remains.  That one goes to the finale.  That way, each coach has one act on the last episode.  No Paula Abdul/X Factor situations.

  • julesb2183

     Yeah, the format is waaay to complicated.

  • julesb2183

     That’s what doesn’t make sense. If you are working for a “team” to win, why are you competing against contestants on your team?

  • kirble

    I’ve been waiting for another one of these Battle Round performances to really sizzle like Nelly’s Echo and De’borah’s “Message in a Bottle.”

    And man have I been disappointed.
