With all teams complete, The Voice is officially in the second phase of the competition!
The battle rounds began last night, and our Team Blake had to send two members home. It was a fight between Adley Stump vs. RaeLynn and Brian Fuente vs. Jordis.
Joining Team Blake as mentors are music superstars, Miranda Lambert and Kelly Clarkson. Miranda and Kelly are each in charge of six members. This week, Miranda worked with RaeLynn and Jordis, while Kelly helped out Adley and Brian. None of the team members knew that they were being mentored by Miranda and Kelly. Needless to say, they were all very excited when they walked into the room and saw them. I loved getting to watch Miranda and Kelly work with the team. They are both so unbelievably talented, knowledgeable, and down-to-earth. Not to mention, you cannot beat their first-hand experience when it comes to singing competitions.
RaeLynn vs. Adley
Blake chose Tom Petty’s, “Free Fallin’” for RaeLynn and Adley’s battle. The girls both sounded great and Adley has some vocal range. Unfortunately, Blake had to make the difficult decision of sending someone home. In the end, he decided to have RaeLynn continue forward in the competition.

Jordis vs. Brian
For Jordis and Brian’s battle, Blake chose Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic.” Blake felt they both did not give their best performance and he had heard better from them. Still, both singers held their own during the battle. When it was time to choose, though, Blake decided to keep Jordis.

Jordis & Brian’s Battle:
We hate when we have to lose someone from the team, but that is the game. We want to wish Adley and Brian the best of luck! We are confident that they will both have careers, and we can’t wait to hear music from them in the future!
And a big congratulations to RaeLynn and Jordis! We’ll see you next round. Go Team Blake!
