Lots of surprise picks in tonight’s battles and a few not so surprising steals after. Featuring excellent renditions of Bon Jovi, Hall & Oates and Florence + the Machine.
Tonight’s battle brought two steals, one amazing duet, one country throw down and the return of the hot Peruvian singer.
Adam gets heated. Blake gets taunted. Xtina says SHUT UP. CeeLo gets Winehouse’d.
Blake is on a roll. Xtina is on the case of someone she passed up last season. CeeLo is hearing folks singing his songs and not liking it. Adam is being reallllllllly nice to everyone. Suspicious.
CeeLo goes for the classics. Adam Levine keeps it smarmy. Christina Aguilera’s a Kelly Clarkson fan. Blake Shelton just can’t get no satisfaction.
Christina Aguilera remains totally professional when a former boy band-er sings The Wanted. Blake gets The Judds 2.0. CeeLo tells a “Don’t Cha” secret. And Adam Levine gets Leonard Cohen.
Someone picked up the first ever Spanish singer. Someone picked up a sure thing ringer. Someone picked up a kid with glasses. And someone got no one new because he’s picky.
Last night, the popular music competition The Voice opened its new season with all four celebrity judges (Adam Levine of Maroon 5, CeeLo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton) performing a version of The Rolling Stones’ classic, “Start Me Up.” (For a full recap of the show, go here.) It’s the latest example of the song’s enduring popularity.
