VOICE OVER: Week 7 of The Voice Reveals Powerhouse Battle Rounds!
The last battle of the night was between two awesome girls on Team Christina, Devyn DeLoera and Marissaann. They sang, "Free Your Mind," because Christina said, "I wanted to give them a song that’s a playground of activity to really roar.” And rest assured, these girls did just that. Although, Devyn admitted to being shy, which she knew she had to get over it, and Marissaann was worried about figuring out how to get people to really notice and remember her. Christina advised the latter to tell her story of pain through the song, because through that, she could touch the world. As they were getting in their last minutes of rehearsal the day before the performance, Devyn was all over the place with her impeccable range and power. Her coach reminded her to keep doing that, but to choose her moments rather than let them proliferate. Their performance was amazing, forcing a very tough decision on Christina. Adam liked Devyn the best, essentially saying that 15-year-old Marissaann was so young, that she could go about her career anytime. On the other end, CeeLo and Blake picked Marissaann because it was amazing that at such a young age she could be that awesome, and she could only get better. A reluctant Christina had to choose the winner, so after assuring them both of their superstar status in her mind, she chose Devyn. As Marissaann started her farewell speech, Blake glanced at the red button, then just yelled, “I like Marissaann!” using his final steal for her. On Twitter, Blake said, “I couldn't stand to see that one go - had to #steal her. What a performance! Welcome to #TeamBlake #TheVoice.”
So as week seven of The Voice is halfway over, the teams stand thus: Adam has completed his team, the rest of them each have one spot left, and Christina is the only one with another steal to use tomorrow. Tune in to NBC at 8/7c tomorrow night to catch the last night of the Battle Rounds!
