The Battle Rounds kicked off on tonight’s The Voice It was a front loaded episode–nine singers advanced to the Knockout Rounds including three stolen contestants.
Only 3 singers left the competition. In each case, it was understandable. I don’t believe anyone was robbed. Dan Shafer sings beautifully, but he doesn’t possess charisma. Natalie Bure served as a PR gimmick. If her mother wasn’t Cameron Bure, she would have been lucky to earn a spot in the blinds. And Andrew DeMuro is like that corny dude who plays in a dueling piano bar.
TWO of Adam Levine’s singers were eliminated tonight, while ALL FOUR contestants who competed for Team Alicia Keys either advanced or were stolen. I think that speaks to the relative strength of their respective teams.
I haven’t formed much of an opinion on the mentors. Bette Midler is an icon and I always appreciate her sense of humor. Sundance Head fanboying over her cracked me up. Now, that’s a woman who knows how to perform. Joan Jett delivered solid advice while being cooler than sh*t.
Tomorrow is a one hour show and I don’t expect the battles to be as stellar. There will likely be some montages, too. See you then! In the meantime, vote in our polls.
