After watching just one round of the battles this second season, it's safe to say that we should all be glad The Voice kept them around. Why? They may not be perfect, but they are still far more entertaining than the past 11 seasons of American Idol's Hollywood Week.To read the rest of my review of last night's The Voice, head over to TV Fanatic.
The first episode of Battles gave us mentoring sessions from a number of stars, a more in depth look at all of The Voice's contestants, and, most importantly, a few brilliant performances that left the coaches, America, and me stunned.
Let's get to the action...
Team Adam - Tony Lucca vs. Chris Cauley - "Beautiful Day"
The Battle: Both guys sounded great. I liked that Tony took the advice to go for the high notes, because he hit them, and killed it. Chris was great, and the two of them sounded awesome together, but Tony was just much more believable. I liked Cee Lo's argument that Tony "articulated the song better."
My Choice: Tony
Adam's Choice: Tony
Battle Grade: A-
