“The Voice” Season 11 aired the first Battle round, which saw the singers on Blake Shelton’s, Alicia Keys’, Miley Cyrus’ and Adam Levine’s respective teams facing off against each other.
The Battles Premiere featured some outstanding performances and great song choices from the coaches. Check out the performances from Monday night’s episode below!
6. Dan Schafer vs. Sundance Head – “Feel Like Makin’ Love”
Schafer and Head gave a soulful rendition of “Feel Like Makin’ Love.” However, only one person could move on to the next round, and Shelton went with Head.
5. Ali Caldwell vs. Courtnie Ramirez – “Hit or Miss”
Team Miley’s Caldwell and Ramirez showed off their unique vocal tones while performing Odetta’s “Hit or Miss.” In the end, Cyrus chose Caldwell, while Ramirez went to Keys’ team.
4. Christian Cuevas vs. Jason Warrior – “Hello”
Cuevas and Warrior took on Adele’s “Hello” and impressed all four judges. Keys picked Cuevas in the end, but Warrior didn’t go home since Levine used his steal to get him on his team.
3. Natasha Bure vs. Riley Elmore – “Cry Me a River”
Bure and Elmore took on “Cry Me a River,” but it was the latter who impressed Levine more. Unfortunately, none of the other judges used their steal for Bure, who went home during Monday’s episode. But the daughter of “Fuller House” star Candace Cameron Bure didn’t go home with a heavy heart, as she tweeted her fellow contestant right after the show: “Love you so freaking much @rileyelmore.”
2. Andrew DeMuro vs. Billy Gilman – “Man in the Mirror”
DeMuro and Gilman had the audience swooning with their sweet vocals while performing Michael Jackson’s classic song, “Man in the Mirror.” After their battle, Levine chose to go with Gilman.
1. Lauren Diaz vs. Wé McDonald – “Maybe”
Diaz and McDonald showed off their powerful voices with Janis Joplin’s “Maybe.” It was McDonald who won Keys over in the end.
