Pharrell Williams and Kelli Douglas during The Voice's "Blind Auditions" on September 29, 2014. 

The battles continued on The Voice on Tuesday, but it wasn't without its share of delay.

"I think I have had a birthday since this battle started," Blake Shelton said at one point to Adam Levine, who was taking incredibly long to decided on a winner of a particular match. But when Levine finally made his heartbreaking decision, a singer broke out into tears while being sent home, and was walked out by Pharrell Williams with a pep talk: "If you stop now, the 'no' was right."
