The Voice Australia 5: Battles (2)

img_0212

More battles! Wow we only have three episodes of battle rounds and I am very much entertained. And a surprising twist and turn at the end of the episode.

Now let us see how the night went.

ILISAVANI CAVA (vs) THE KOI BOYS
Uptown Funk
Team JESSIE

– This was a fun battle to be honest and I thought both artists bring on whatever they can do to showcase what they can. Vocally, not perfect but that imperfections allow a great balance on the battle. The Koi Boys are still good at finding the right connections and harmonies between them although sometimes their pitch is off. Ilisavani on the other hand uses his grit way too much that it sounded grating but he held his own. 7

WINNER: The Koi Boys
ELIMINATED: Ilisavani Cava
STOLEN:


KAYLEIGH KILLICK (vs) ASTRID RIPEPI
Never Forget You
Team RONAN

– Astrid sounded really good and I am surprised with this decision. I thought Astrid brought the right amount of spunk and intensity on this that she easily outshinrs Kayleigh. Interesting. 6.5

WINNER: Kayleigh Killick
ELIMINATED: Astrid Ripepi
STOLEN:


KIM SHEEHY (vs) MAXON
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Team DELTA

– Yikes! There are parts here that sounded nice and some of the dynamics were lovely but there are also parts where both hit a couple of sharp notes. 6

WINNER: Kim Sheehy
ELIMINATED: Maxon
STOLEN:


NATHAN LAMONT (vs) ANDREW LOADSMAN
I Will Wait
Team MADDEN

– Andrew Loadsman is a star. He just needs to find a way not to overdone the vocal choices he is making so that the song that he is singing is still recognizable but other than that he is really made. Nathan held his own but the inevitable has to happen and he is unfortunately the sacrificial lamb. 7

WINNER: Andrew Loadsman
ELIMINATED: Nathan Lamont
STOLEN:


SARAH BROWNE (vs) EMAD YOUNAN
Dancing In The Dark
Team RONAN

– I don’t know what it is but I felt like they are missing their timing but the vocals were pretty good. Emad to be exact is quite a good story teller and his vocals were mostly spot on. 6.5

WINNER: Emad Younan
ELIMINATED: Sarah Browne
STOLEN:


NAZZEREENE TALEB (vs) MADDISON MCNAMARA
Stole The Show
Team MADDEN

– This is pretty good. Nazzereene came out swinging and her vocals were impeccable. Maddison sounded pretty too although she hit a couple of wobbly notes but I thought she held her own. Real good. 7

WINNER: Nazzereene Taleb
ELIMINATED:
STOLEN: Maddison McNamara (Team Jessie)


MARCIA HOWARD (vs) CRISSY ASHCROFT
Wicked Game
Team DELTA

– It sounded dated and halfway it became boring. 4

WINNER: Marcia Howard
ELIMINATED: Crissy Ashcroft
STOLEN:


NADA LEIGH NASSER (vs) JASMIN JADE NASSER
How Come You Don’t Call Me Anymore
Team JESSIE

– Like their blinds, both Nada and Jasmin can sing and both compliments what the other is lacking. To be fair, I thought Jasmin sang better and her choices were pretty spot on. Is it a good idea to make them as a duo? Not sure. It’s risky but I guess Jessie can coach them. This is pretty good battle performance although it felt more like a duet. 7.5

WINNER: Nada & Jasmin*
ELIMINATED:
STOLEN:

* Jessie J cannot choose between the two and ask for the producer’s permission if she can not eliminate one but instead make them as a duo. The contestants agreed as well. A The Voice first.
