My favorite performance from tonight’s blind auditions wasMoushumi coveringChris Isaak’sWicked Game.”She has a wonderfulindie voice which to me had a sultry effect to it. It was marvelous and very unique. Every judge exceptBlake turned around because his team was full. Each judge gave their best effort to snatchMoushumi. Pharrellended up the win with his smooth talking capabilities.

The blind auditions then came to a close with Jared HarderjoiningTeam Blake,MoushumijoiningTeam Pharrell,Katie BasdenjoiningTeam AdamandAyanna JahnejoiningTeam Christina.

We learned the coaching partners of each coach as well. Team Christina has Patti LaBelle,Team Blake hasGwen Stefani,TeamAdam has Tori KellyandTeam Pharrell hasSean “Diddy” Combs. Each will mentor the contestants throughout the battle and knock-out rounds.

After the blind auditions, each coach grouped their contestants into pairs for the Battle Rounds. The strongest battle, in my opinion, was from Team Christina’sBryan Bautista and Malik Heard.The pairbelted it out to “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World” by James Brown. This was the most intense battle the entire night. Each contestant was back and forth with falsettos and so much strength in their vocals I didn’t think I could ever hear. The judges were not mad by any means because whichever oneAguileradidn’t choose, they were going to steal for themselves.Adam referred to them as the big fish on the show. In the end,Christina chose to keepBryan. Malik was not unlucky though by any means because all three remaining coaches hit their buttons for a steal. After a tough decision, Malik chose to work withPharrell.

ICYMI, or just want a spoiler, here are the contestants that were competing against each other, saved, stolen, and sent home. *Strikethrough contestants were sent home.*

Team Adam: Katie Basden vs. Ryan Quinn(Ryan won but Blake stoleKatie!)

Team Blake: Brittney Lawerence vs. Paxton Ingram
