“The Voice” season 6, episode 7: “The Battles, Round 1 Premiere” premieres tonight on NBC.
In this week’s episode, the “battle rounds” begin and the coaches enlist the help of the music industry’s top recording artists to offer their knowledge and skills as advisers. Adam Levine teams up with Aloe Blacc, Blake Shelton with The Band Perry, Shakira with Miranda Lambert and Usher with Jill Scott. In this phase, the coaches pit two of their own team members against each other in a dueling duet. After the vocal face-off, each coach must choose which artist from their team is the strongest, and has the option of stealing losing artists from an opposing coach. Each coach has two steals during the battle rounds.
Here’s a description of the show by NBC:
“The Voice” returns with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show’s sixth season. Celebrity musicians and coaches Levine, Shakira, Usher and Shelton return, while Carson Daly continues to serve as host.
“The show’s innovative format features four stages of competition: the blind auditions, the battle rounds, the knockouts and finally, the live performance shows.”
“The Voice” season 6, episode 7: “The Battles, Round 1 Premiere” airs Monday, March 17, at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. Check out the preview and sneak peeks below.
