This is the final week of The Battle Rounds. Sadly because of the damn final Presidential debate, the Monday night show was only an hour. So within this post you’ll see me write stuff like: “I can’t tell because the battle was cut short” etc etc. I will say that the battles this year in Season 3 have been amazing. Even the artists I didn’t like all did a awesome job!
The Battles Round 5
A Battle Between: Brandon Mahone Vs Nicole Nelson
Song Choice was: Aint No Mountain High Enough
This was an amazing battle! I actually got to hear Nicole’s voice this time. When she sang Hallelujah I liked it, but couldn’t really form an opinion on her at first. However with this song she was simply amazing.
Nicole was the winner, with no one stealing Brandon Mahone.

A Battle Between: Daniel Rosa Vs Alexis Marceaux
Song Choice was: Adam Lambert’s Whataya Want From Me
I have said it in one of the Blind Audition blogs, I’m no Daniel Rosa fan. I preferred Alexis’s singing over Daniel’s. I’m not familiar with the song either, and come to find out that it’s an American Idol runner up song, ugh. Not a fan!
Daniel Rosa was the winner, with no one stealing Alexis

A Battle Between: Devyn DeLoera Vs MarissaAnn
Song Choice was: En Vogue’s Free Your Mind
THIS WAS THE BATTLE OF THE NIGHT!!!!!!!!!! Very awesome that Devyn won, and rqually awesome that Blake used is last Steal to snatch MarissaAnn. Loved their rendition of the song!!!!
Devyn DeLoera was the winner, with MarissaAnn being stolen by Blake Shelton.

Battles That We Only Got A Glimpse Of:
A Battle Between: Lauren Allred Vs Brian Scartoucci
Song Choice was: Lady Antebellum’s Need you Now
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again… These mini showings of battles do not do the artists justice, and doesn’t allow people to make a honest opinion of them. Out of what I saw I thought Lauren drowned out Brian sadly.
Lauren was the winner, with no one stealing Brian Scartoucci

A Battle Between: Ryan Jirovec Vs Cassadee Pope
Song Choice was: Gavin DeGraw’s Not Over You
When I heard Cassadee sing Torn in the Blinds, I was a instant fan. Again I know ?I’m coming off as a broken record, but these mini battle viewings do nothing for me. I did buy Cassadee’s song, and really enjoy her performance.
Cassadee was the winner, with no one stealing Ryan Jirovec

A Battle Between: Joe Kirkland Vs Samuel Mouton
Song Choice was: You Get What You Give by the New Radicals
Even though this was a mini battle, I could really tell that Joe was the winner. This is a rockin song, and Samuel just was too soft with it.
Joe was the winner, with no one stealing Samuel

The Battles Round 6
The final round was just amazing!!!!
A Battle Between: Kelly Crapa Vs Michaela Paige
Song Choice was: I Hate Myself For Loving You
Again another battle where I prefer the losing contestants version. I felt Kelly out performed Michaela all the way.
Michaela was the winner, with no one stealing Kelly Crapa.

A Battle Between: Avery Wilson Vs Chevonne
Song Choice was: Titanium
Never heard of the song before, even after doing research on it. However I loved the performance, and the staging that was done. Between all the moves Chevonne was doing and Avery’s dancing at the end it was a very engaging performance.
Avery was the winner, with Christina using her final Steal to nab Chevonne.

A Battle Between: Jordan Pruitt Vs Adriana Louise
Song Choice was: Katy Perry’s Hot n Cold
THE BEST BATTLE OF THE NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MMMMMMMMMMMMMM Adriana! I love this girl. Her voice is amazing! There is nothing that she can’t sing. I looked early on in the wikipedia article for The Voice Season 3, and it said the song choice was Perry’s Firwork. I think that would have been an interesting battle between these two knockout artists. However I throughly enjoyed Hot n Cold.
Adriana was the winner, with no one stealing Jordan Pruitt

Week 3 Final Thoughts:
As the Battles in Season 3 of The Voice come to a close, I find myself excited for the new aspect of this hit musical talent show. The next round is the Knockout Rounds! I’m very happy that a lot of the artists I throughly enjoy won their battles, and moved on. I am also very sad at a few of the people I wanted to win but didn’t. We’ll have to see what happens next week when The Voice Season 3 KNOCKS YOU OUT!!!!!
Jordan, Brandon and Brian did not deserve to go home at this stage – not saying they all should have won their battles but they definitely should have been stolen!! (instead of wasting a steal on Chevonne good lord!)
