Are you wondering how Kelsea Ballerini will handle taking over an ailing Kelly Clarkson’s team for The Voice Battle Rounds? Check out this preview of an upcoming Team Kelly battle for a clue. Think of the game show, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire, where contestants are allowed to use a “lifeline.”
After Gean Garcia and Ryleigh Modig BOTH shine on Ariana Grande’s “pov,” Kelsea calls Kelly at home for advice on whom to choose, and all she has to say is, “I don’t think either of them is going home.” Which implies that the coaches make decisions even before the taped performances? In any case, Kelly IS watching, which means Kelsea can can send out the bat signal at any time!
John Legend notes that he didn’t turn for either singer, which has him questioning his own judgement. Blake Shelton is particularly drawn to Gean, whom he declares is “performing from a different dimension.” He’d pick Gean.
Nick Jonas calls Ryleigh’s voice “magical,” adding “You’re the kind of artist I’d die to write songs for…to write with.”
Who will Kelsea choose? Will another coach pick the loser? Or will Kelly reach out from her sickbed and save a singer? Find out when The Voice Battles begin Monday on NBC at 8 pm ET/PT.
