Most of these battles were really predictable. Except the steals.
Vedo v. Jessica – I’m guessing that Usher picked “Locked Out of Heaven” with Vedo in mind, and I think he always was going to pick him. I prefer Jessica.
Monique v. Luke – I would have gone with Monique, too. I think this is another case where the coach knew going into it exactly who she was going to choose. Luke is good, but I’m surprised Blake was so into him.
Savannah v. Jacqui - No surprise here, either. It was pretty obvious Blake was going to go with the young girl who sings country and has a good voice.
C. Perkins v. Kris – I definitely liked Kris more. I wouldn’t have stolen C. I don’t think Usher is playing this game very well.
Midas Whale v. Patrick – Based on vocals, I would have chosen Karina. Then Patrick. But Midas Whale will bring variety and fun. I hope it doesn’t go over the edge to contrived and annoying.
Orlando v. Ryan – Weird pairing. I prefer Ryan. I was surprised, but pleased that Usher went with him.
