img_0212

Here are the final set of battles. 10 more artists moving forward; 8 winning their battles and the lucky 2 getting the final coaches’ save. Who will make it? Let’s all find out.

LEXI CLARK (vs) CASEY ROSE
Ex’s & Oh’s
Team MADDEN

– This is pretty close with Lexi winning with that more confident stage presence but vocally both girls delivered a really good vocal performance. 7

WINNER: Lexi Clark
ELIMINATED: Casey Rose
STOLEN:


ALFIE ARCURI (vs) ANDREW MCKINNON
Drag Me Down
Team DELTA

– I like this. Probably would’ve wished that they both – especially Alfie – let go on that breakdown and totally rocked it out regardless of the notes taken because the build up was there and both sounded spectacular. Andrew surprised me and I thought Alfie will blow him out of the park easily but he held his own. This is actually a good one. Loved it. 7.5

WINNER: Alfie Arcuri
ELIMINATED: Andrew McKinnon
STOLEN:


BRIANNA HOLM (vs) AALIYAH WARREN
Smells Like Teen Spirit
Team JESSIE

– The song for me is way too big for the girls and I thought they just made the most out of it. Brianna had the better vocals based on that performance but Aaliyah went with better vocal choices. One thing though, why on Earth Jessie wouldn’t be happy that one of her artist got stolen. Sure I got her point that maybe Aaliyah is not yet ready for primetime tv but the experience could make her work hard more and develop the potential that is within her. End of rant. 6

WINNER: Brianna Holm
ELIMINATED:
STOLEN: Aaliyah Warren (Team Madden)


GEORGIA CAREY (vs) KATE VAN ELWISJK
Believe
Team RONAN

– This was a pretty battle albeit sleepy in times. Kate had some interesting tone going on in there but her phrasing is kinda off so that made some of her vocal choices sounded flat. Georgia started really strong but towards the end, she kinda went sharp. But still a pretty good one. 7

WINNER: Georgia Carey
ELIMINATED: Kate Van Elwisjk
STOLEN:


BEN LOGAN (vs) SHIRIN MAJD
The Prayer
Team DELTA

– Eh? Ben is robbed. Not my cup of tea but I thought Ben delivered better vocals. Shirin’s vocals especially during the high register sounded quite sharp. 4

WINNER: Shirin Majd
ELIMINATED: Ben Logan
STOLEN:


TALIA GIANCASPRO (vs) KYLIE JANE
Not Ready To Make Nice
Team MADDEN

– This was actually a good battle. It wasn’t anything groundbreaking or so but both delivered well vocally. I thought Talia had more risk in terms of her vocal choices while Kylie is more sure in terms of the performance. 7

WINNER: Talia Giancaspro
ELIMINATED: Kylie Jane
STOLEN:


MITCH GARDNER (vs) ADAM LADELL
Firestone
Team RONAN

– I wanted to super like this, really. The tone of the both guys were like good. The vocals were fine but I felt like the coaches missed taking point the sharp and flat notes they hit during the performances. I thought Mitch had better vocals over all. 6.5

WINNER: Mitch Gardner
ELIMINATED:
STOLEN: Adam Ladell (Team Delta)


ELLEN REED (vs) CLAIRE HOWELL
Unconditionally
Team JESSIE

– Ellen for me is the clear winner. Though some of her notes were not as point as her blind audition was, she was more precise and her choices were pretty good. Claire had some phrasing problems and some of her vocal choices were I think off pitch. 6.5

WINNER: Ellen Reed
ELIMINATED: Claire Howell
STOLEN:
