The new battles round may have new rules and a new guest mentor, but Tuesday night's episode of "The Voice" proved that song choice is still everything.
Similar to the now-defunct knockout round, the coaches still pick who performs in each sudden-death duet, and the contenders must agree on a song from their coach's shortlist that not only showcases each of their strengths, but also gives them the opportunity to potentially outshine the other.
Rehearsals for this round are held in the ring itself, and the singers are shown meeting with their families before they begin their battles. All of the coaches have one steal each, plus the mentorship of Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin.
