The Voice 24 Battle: Kaylee Shimizu vs Elizabeth Evans stun the coaches with powerful “traitor” cover

The Voice season 24 Battles, which resume with Part 4 on Monday, featuring two Team John Legend artists fighting for a chance to compete in the Knockouts with a fierce rendition of Olivia Rodrigo’s “traitor.”

Teen singer, Kaylee Shimizu, from Ewa Beach Hawaii, earned a 4-chair turn during the Blind Auditions for her beautiful cover of The Beatles’ “Golden Slumbers.” After John gushed, “You know you could win The Voice, right?” she chose chose his team.

College student Elizabeth Evans earned chair turns from John and Reba McEntire after her dramatic Blind Audition of Paramore’s “All I Wanted.”

Now, the two face off against each other, singing the pain filled anthem “traitor.” The two bring soaring harmonies and passionate solos to the Olivia Rodrigo hit song.

“That’s the best version of that song I’ve heard, 100 percent”

Reba praised Kaylee’s “Unbelievable vocal range and power” while complimenting Elizabeth’s ability to hit the big notes. “I was just in awe,” she says. “Y’all just really complimented each other. Love the harmonies,” she says adding, “For this performance, I would pick Elizabeth.”

“That’s the best version of that song I’ve heard, 100 percent,” Niall Horan declares. He can’t believe that Kaylee is only 17 saying “the control you have over your runs and the range you’ve got is just phenomenal.” Her performance proves why she was a 4-chair turn in the first place, Niall says. He calls Elizabeth’s performance “a different beast” and believes that her “identity as an artist” is not “something we have a lot of.” He would “lean towards” Elizabeth.

Gwen Stefani believes Elizabeth is in a tough place, battling against Kaylee “who has one of the most incredible voices I”ve ever heard.” Gwen compliments Kaylee’s control and calls her little vocal “tricks” masterful. However, she adds, the “thing that you have on stage ” is “very original and rare.” Gwen can’t choose.

John calls the performance “stunning” adding “both of you were so interesting and cool.” On one hand, Elizabeth does interesting note choices, John says, while Kaylee has a rare vocal gift. “Very few people on the planet” sing with her level of ability, he says. John calls Kaylee’s level of “polish” at such a young age “stunning to watch.”

Who will John choose to move on to the Knockouts? And will another coach steal the losing vocalist? Tune in to The Voice on NBC Monday October 30 at 8 pm to find out.
