The Voice Recap 3/24/15- Season 8- The Knockouts Premiere, Part 2
“The Voice” kicked off the Knockout Rounds last night and they are saying that it is some of the best singing they have heard in a long time. You can keep up with night one of the Knockout Rounds for season eight of “The Voice”here.
This season’s knockouts were unique from the beginning as last night, the show had it’s first three-way knockout. Why? Because someone was not allowed to stay on the show so that was how they handled it where three sang and only two stayed. You can see the first-ever three-way knockout on “The Voice” here. In the battle rounds, each coach had a mentor. Adam Levine had Ellie Goulding; Christina Aguilera had Nick Jonas; Pharrell Williams had Lionel Richie and reigning champ Blake Shelton had Meghan Trainor. They offered a lot of positive feedback to help shape the teams to what they are now. However, they are gone and a key mentor for all four teams is in.
We have seen Chris Martin from Coldplay as a key mentor and last season, Taylor Swift hopped into the ring. This year, we have Nate Ruess from the band FUN who has written several hit songs not only for himself but for others. He is having with being a mentor but he is also taking very seriously as he wants to see these singers grow and advance. The competition is tough. Two singers are paired up from each team then they each choose a song individually to sing. When they are both done, the coaches give their opinions but it is on their specific coaches head to pick the winner. Each coach is given one steal in this round so four people can be saved.
Tonight, the knockout rounds continue with top team members selecting their own songs to perform individually. Song choice could make or break them in this round so they better think hard.
