The third battle round of The Voice showcased the second set of artists battling in elimination duets. Coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams rehearse with their artists and advisors: Selena Gomez on Team Gwen, Brad Paisley on Team Blake, Missy Elliott on Team Pharrell and John Fogerty with Team Adam. But the battle wasn’t just on the stage. Blake took every opportunity he had to take a shot at Adam’s new haircut, or lack thereof, calling him every name from Cold Stone Steve Austin to Powder.
Kicking off the third night of the battle rounds, Blake paired the inspiring country singer Blind Joe against rocker Blaine Mitchell. Blake combined they’re genres by giving them “Old Time Rock and Roll,” and asked them to give it all they’ve got, which is exactly what they did. Adam called it brawly, unruly, and just plain awesome. As far as singing goes, Blake called it a dead tie, but in the end went with Blind Joe as the winner of this battle. That gave Adam the perfect opportunity to steal Blaine.
