Week two of the Battle Rounds commenced tonight with some surprising stealing and very strong emotions across the board. With the end of this week’s episodes of NBC’s The Voice, half of the judges had used up all of their steals, some of which happened tonight. Singers from Team Blake Shelton, with the help of advisor Michale Bublé, Team Adam Levine and Mary J. Blige, and Team CeeLo Green with Rob Thomas battled it out hard-core for an hour of The Voice.

Before reading on, if you missed an episode, or can't quite remember who these contestants are, click here to get a recap of all of the previous episodes!

Team Blake’s girls Liz Davis and Nicole Johnson opened this Tuesday night’s episode with a killer country showdown, “Baggage Claim,” by Blake’s wife, Miranda Lambert. He said when they sing this, they need a little bit of, “Oh no you didn’t!” attitude, like Miranda. Nicole admitted to feeling like the underdog, because Liz had already been doing the Nashville scene for a while. But the pressure was on Liz, because Blake said that she was at a stage where basically, if she were going to make it in the music business, it had to be now. During the performance, both of these girls brought a very “whatever,” sassy attitude that made this song a highlight of the night. A very torn Blake said, “I know Miranda would be so proud. Liz, you’re more laid back on stage. Nicole, you lost your breath in there once, and I’ve never seen you do that before. They both did so great. But I think based on experience, Liz never really lost her breath, so I’m gonna go with Liz on this one.” Sweet Nicole left the stage in tears, but Blake made sure to give her a hug and encourage her to keep going.

Alessandra Guercio and Kayla Nevarez of Team Adam sang Katy Perry’s hit, “Wide Awake.” Mary J. Blige said, “Alessandra is imprisoned by being perfect, doing everything right all the time.” Adam agreed, “Kayla is more natural, Alessandra is more studied. I’m looking to see who can keep it together in performance.” A resolute Alessandra firmly stated, “Losing isn’t an option.” Alessandra had this intense, insane attitude going on while on stage, contrasted with Kayla’s quieter, subtle intensity. When Adam had to make a final decision, he told Alessandra, “The energy was there, but you still sound trained. But sometimes, Kayla’s notes weren’t right on the money. Alessandra, it sounded like your belief in yourself wasn’t strong enough. But Kayla, I remember you pulled me aside aggressively after auditions, and said, ‘We better win this thing!’ The winner of this one is Kayla.” Alessandra had already accepted defeat when Coach Christina Aguilera randomly started talking about her experience in the Mickey Mouse Club, wanting to get out of that structure, and how no girl should lack confidence, and BAM! She hit her red button to steal a surprised Alessandra! The look of genuine surprise on Alessandra's face was priceless.
