Luckily for the contestants, there is a safety net: each coach also has two steals, where they can snag a losing contestant from another coach for a second chance at stardom. It was a wild night full of gruelingly competitive performances and crushing heartbreaks.

Blake says it was truly amazing; he’s waiting for some nose bleeds. He says that Jacob was very worth my than a one chair turn. Christina says that they both blew them away; the song was perfect and they nailed the song. Christina decides the winner of the battle is Matthew.
Jacob says that he really had fun and felt like he is ready to approach music on his own right now; Blake wished he had a steal left to have him on his team.

Anthony is a gospel singer and waited a long time to come back to music. They are singing “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith. CeeLo paired them together because they are complete opposites he felt they could really blend in a weird but amazing way. Miguel tells them both their flaws in what hey are doing in the song; he is delivering them some honest critique.

Blake paired them together because they have a nice Blue sound and gave them “Wonderful” by Grand Funk. Cher says that Ray has a much stronger and louder voice; Monika is going to have to pick it up.
Christina says they brought the energy needed but felt Ray was digging much deeper and felt more consistant than Monika.
