Last night it was finally time for the battle round to open with team members dueling in duets and the coaches enlisting help from star advisers Aloe Blacc, Jill Scott, Miranda Lambert and the Band Perry. Team members were pitted against one another vying for coveted positions that allow them to stay in the competition. Did you watch last night? If not we have a detailed recap for you right here.
During the battle rounds, the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal battle, the coach must choose which of his/her singers will advance to the next round of competition, while the losing artist is available to be stolen by another coach. Each coach has two steals available during the battle rounds.
