Pick the Battle Winner
Abby vs Gyth
I would have chosen Abby as the winner of this battle. But I understand that Gyth is popular. I think he’s had better performances.
- Gyth Rigdon – Team Blake 71.73%
- Abby Kasch – Team Kelly 28.27%
Rebecca vs Beth
I expected Rebecca to be clobbered here, Beth so thoroughly owned that stage last night.
- Beth Griffith Manley – Team Legend 59.89%
- Rebecca Howell – Team Kelly 40.11%
Kendra vs Jimmy
Jimmy sang better last night than he ever has. smallvoiceI actually voted for himsmallvoice.
- Kendra Checketts – Team Adam 76.52%
- Jimmy Mowery – Team Legend 23.48%
Shawn vs Kelly
I thought Shawn also won his battle by a wider margin than indicated here. Kelly was right, this was a weird matchup.
- Shawn Sounds – Team Legend 53.61%
- Kelly Moreno – Team Blake 46.39%
Carter vs Jacob
Jacob caught my attention during the Blinds. His tone is so pure. But his song choice last night (You’re Still the One) was bland. NOT bland: Carter’s soulful take on “Way Down We Go.”
- Carter Lloyd Horne – Team Blake 73.48%
- Jacob Maxwell – Team Legend 26.52%
LB vs Jej
OK then. I understand that Jej is popular. But I expected LB to get a little more love!
- Jej Vinson – Team Kelly 63.29%
- LB Crew – Team Adam 36.71%
Julian vs Kalvin
I voted for Julian because I preferred him. But Kalvin probably will win this battle.
- Kalvin Jarvis – Team Adam 66.06%
- Julian King – Team Legend 33.94%
The Bundys vs Andrew
I am a little surprised that Andrew is leading the poll. But then Blake. Country dudes. Enough said.
- Andrew Sevener – Team Blake 53.58%
- The Bundys – Team Kelly 46.42%
My prediction? The polls got it right. I think we have our winners.
