“The Voice” Season 12 begins the Battle Rounds tonight at 8/7C on NBC. The teams are ready to get cut in half, one battle at a time. Just for kicks we got a leaked example of a battle in Team Alicia.
Chris Blue vs. RJ Collins singing “Adorn” by Miguel is posted below for your enjoyment! Alicia Keys brought in record label exec and producer DJ Khaled for advice and talent mentoring. The other coaches are paired up with advisers like this:
Gwen Stefani and Celine Dion
Adam Levine and John Legend
Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan
The teams were filled after a couple of weeks of Blind Auditions and the talent this year got younger. “The Voice” lowered its minimum age for contestants to 13 and we saw a couple of them in the audition process. Each time a contestant announced his or her age coaches would hoot and holler at how precocious and talented they were at such an early age.
As you can see from the photo of Adam Levine above, he’s gone blonde for the Battles. Not that we think it’s fantastic, but at least it’s a change from watching him and the others wear the same clothing every night of the Blinds. We know the reason they are asked to do that, since NBC splices and dices the video to put together each episode, but….
Are you ready for The Battles?
