The Voice entered it’s second night of knockouts on Tuesday and it managed to deviate a bit from the vibe of Monday’s episode. If you happened to catch Monday’s episode, then you probably understand where we’re coming from.
For those of you that watched last night’s episode, you were probably slightly nervous – if not more – then we were. Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton, and Gwen Stefani made some questionable choices on night one regarding who they kept on their teams and who they decided to send home. Naturally, we were concerned that some of favorites would receive the boot last night (we’re still upset about Autumn Turner and Felicia Temple leaving). Fortunately, the coaches final decisions leaned more towards the side of practicality.
Nonetheless, Celeb Secrets has the breakdown from last night’s episode regarding which vocalists made it to the live shows and which were sadly sent home.
Season 12 of The Voice airs Monday and Tuesday at 8PM on NBC.
TSOUL VS. ENID ORTIZ
It’s safe to say that Shelton made the right decision in this knockout round, but it definitely wouldn’t have been an easy one to make. TSoul and Ortiz are very different vocalists on a variety of levels, and they both bring something different to the table. Although Ortiz’s performance of Adele’s “When We Were Young” showed how she’s improved throughout the season, putting her up against TSoul – who is already very self-aware of who he is as a vocalist – was almost a disadvantage. Nonetheless, TSoul earned his spot on Team Blake with his exciting and strong rendition of Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine.”
BRENNLEY BROWN VS. AALIYAH ROSE
WINNER: BRENNLEY BROWN
In this knockout round, both parties managed to survive. Brown’s powerful, emotion-filled rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s “Up to the Mountain” had Stefani and viewers alike sending praise her way. After last night’s performance, she deserved to secure her spot on Team Gwen. On the contrary, Rose gave an okay performance of Meghan Trainor’s “Like I’m Going to Lose You.” Despite having a few solid patches throughout her performance, it didn’t have the same impact that Brown’s did. Nonetheless, Rose was surprisingly saved in the end by Shelton. Unfortunately, we don’t necessarily see this new team affiliation being a long-term bond.
ANATALIA VILLARANDA VS. DAWSON COYLE
WINNER: ANATALIA VILLARANDA
After Villaranda performed her rendition of Carrie Underwood’s “Two Black Cadillacs”, Coyle didn’t stand a chance. Villaranda, while a tad over-the-top at times, still showcased strong vocals throughout. Likewise, Coyle’s rendition of Imagine Dragons’ “Demons” was fairly uneven and bumpy from the start (probably due to nerves from seeing his competitor perform right before him). It wasn’t necessarily a bad performance, but we definitely wouldn’t consider this to be a good one either. Unfortunately, Coyle helped to make Keys’ decision a bit easier in this knockout battle.
