‘The Voice’ Battle Round 2
On tonight’s battle rounds episode of ‘The Voice’ (April 16), two young, talented singers from Blake Shelton‘s team – Caroline Glaser and Danielle Bradbery – took the stage to perform Corinne Bailey Rae’s hit single ‘Put Your Records On.’
Shakira called the duo’s performance “as refreshing as tangerine ice cream.” Adam Levine said that Bradbery’s performance was “more perfect,” but was also sure to shower Glaser with praise, as well as apologize for not turning his chair for her during her blind audition. “There’s something just so ethereal and magical and wonderful about your voice,” he said. “I’m just happy that I’ve discovered it before it’s potentially too late.”
“Danielle, I don’t know what your parents are feeding you, but I want a big loaf of that,” gushed Shelton. “Your natural singing ability blows my mind. I really put two artists together who have no business being together, and that’s my mistake. It sucks right now.”
Their coach was left with an extremely tough choice to make, but he ultimately named Bradbery the winner of the battle round, giving his fellow coaches the opportunity to snatch up Glaser for their own team. Levine and Usher then proceeded to fight for the steal.
“Caroline, what you do just astonishes me,” complimented Levine. “You’ve lost the battle but you’ve definitely not lost the war, and I want you.” Usher was quick to assure her that not only can he really relate to her as an artist, but he also has a lot to teach her. “I’m willing to set myself on fire,” he said.
Glaser graciously accepted both coaches’ heartfelt praise, but when pressed to make a decision, she said that “My heart is telling me to go with Adam.” At the end of the battle round, Shelton admitted to feeling intimidated by the steal. “I’m a little afraid of the combination of Adam and Caroline,” he said. “There’s no telling how far they can go.”
