The Voice: Ranking The Teams

Ranking The Teams

The Battle Rounds Begin

With the battle rounds starting I am going to be taking a few different things into consideration. I will be looking at the choices of battle contestants, the picks of the winners, whether any of the coaches stole anyone and especially which adviser is the coolest.

1. Team Adam


Amber Carrington vs. Sasha Allen
Song: Try by Pink
Winner: Amber Carrington

Judith Hill vs. Karina Iglesias
Song: It's a Man's Man's Man's World by James Brown
Winner: Judith Hill

Michael Austin vs. Warren Stone
Song: My Kind of Party by Jason Aldean
Winner: Warren Stone

Stolen Artists: Caroline Glasser

Adam gets the first spot again this week because he kept his strongest singers and he stole the best singer available(besides Karina Iglesias). He had the best battle out of any of the teams (Judith vs Karina) and he probably has the adviser with best singing voice. If Adam can keep picking the best pairings and end up stealing another great artist he can position himself in a great place to win the whole season.

Best Performance: Judith Hill vs. Karina Iglesias

2.Team Usher


Jess Kellner vs. Taylor Beckham
Song: You Know I'm No Good by Amy Winehouse
Winner: Jess Kellner

Jeff Lewis vs. Josiah Hawley
Song: Roxanne by The Police
Winner: Josiah Hawley

Audrey Karrasch vs. Jamila Thompson
Not Shown on TV
Winner: Audrey Karrasch

Stolen Artists: None

Usher's team is easily the most underrated. The Jeff Lewis vs Josiah Hawley battle could make a case for second best battle round of the first week (your trophy is in the mail). He didn't steal any artists but that might be the best thing for him considering the talent that was let go. The only downfall of the first week of battle rounds was that he picked Jess Kellner over Taylor Beckham but he has Pharell as an adviser so he gets a pass on that one.

Best Performance: Jeff Lewis vs. Josiah Hawley

3. Team Blake


Holly Tucker vs. Michelle Raitzin
Song: Blown Away by Carrie Underwood
Winner: Holly Tucker

Christian Porter vs. The Swan Brothers
Song: Wont Back Down by Tom Petty
Winner: The Swan Brothers

Caroline Glasser vs. Danielle Bradbury
Song: Put Your Records On by Corrine Bailey Rae
Winner: Danielle Bradbury

Grace Askew vs. Trevor Davis
Not Shown on TV
Winner: Grace Askew

Stolen Artists: Taylor Beckham

Blake has the hardest decision so far, when he had to pick between Caroline Glasser and Danielle Bradbury and although he may have picked the better singer of that specific song I think he might have made a huge mistake in the long run. He still has Holly Tucker (front runner) and the Swan Brothers (incredible harmonies), plus he stole Taylor Beckham from Usher and could possibly end up with her in the next round.

Best Performance: Holly Tucker vs. Michelle Raitzin

4. Team Shakira


Garrett Gardner vs. J'Sun
Song: How You Like Me Now by The Heavy
Winner: Garrett Gardner

Tawnya Reynolds vs. Mark Andrews
Not Shown on TV
Winner: Tawnya Reynolds

Stolen Artists: Karina Iglesias, Sasha Allen

I thought about moving Shakira up to number three but the only thing good about her first two days of battle rounds was that she got the second and third best singer to have lost. Of the twelve battle rounds we were able to see (even the ones that weren't shown in full) there were maybe four artists that where worth stealing and Shakira ended up with two of them. Now when we get to see some of the best battles her steals will have all been used up. It's not looking too good for Shakira this year.

Best Performance: Garret Gardner vs. J'Sun
