Reagan Strange vs Emily Hough Battles
The Voice season 15 Battle Rounds continue tonight with coaches Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton. Carson Daly returns as host. We’re live blogging all the performances here.
Photograph by Ed Sheeran – Adam pairs up the teens. Reagan is only 13. Emily is a little older at 16. They have become fast friends. Emily is from a small midwestern town. The blinds were the biggest performance she’s every done. Reagan has been watching the show for as long as she can remember. OH. Hugging Cee Lo Green. Kinda creepy considering. Reagan wonders what happened to Cee Lo’s cat. Cee Lo thinks Reagan can do know wrong, vocally. Adam advises they “question themselves less” and lean into the emotion. Cee Lo blabber on in a way that goes over the young girls’ heads. At stage rehearsal, he urges them not to be nervous.
Both sing with sweet bell like tones. The voices blend really well. And it’s obvious that they have a bond. I thought I’d be Team Reagan, but now I’m not so sure. Oops. There are some nerves at play here. Emily loses her pitch at one point. The best parts of this performance were the harmonies.
Blake calls it a “sweet little fairytale.” Jennifer compares them to “angels.” Kelly compares Reagan’s voice to poetry, but she appreciates that Emily “lives in your moment.” Adam Chooses Reagan. No surprising at all. Emily is eliminated. Adam tells her the loss will make her a better singer.
Ohh. A new episode of The Comeback stage. Sam and Wyatt face off tonight! I’ll be posting that up later. So watch for that.
