Heading into the third and final night of Battles, The Voice coaches Blake Shelton and Nick Jonas each had one steal to use. Kelly Clarkson had one save to use, and John Legend had already used his steal and save early in the game. Each coach pitted new artists against one another in duets and had to make tough decisions about who to keep and who to send home.
The season’s new coach Jonas was up first with a Battle between Samuel Wilco and Arei Moon. They sang “Missing You” by John Waite, and Jonas — aided by Joe and Kevin Jonas — encouraged them to get vulnerable with it. They delivered a strong performance, but Legend thought Moon stood out, and Jonas followed his lead and kept Moon on his team. Wilco went home.
Team Kelly was up next. Clarkson had Megan Danielle and Samantha Howell sing “Top of the World” by Patty Griffin. Team Kelly’s celebrity advisor Dua Lipa worked with the women to really put power behind their voices as well as connect with the lyrics through their stage presence. Danielle leans country with touches of R&B while Howell has more of a pop-country sound, but they both sounded good on the song and both seemed to embody the kind of young, raw country vibe that Clarkson has been after this season. Clarkson crowned Danielle the winner but opted to use her only save on Howell, so they both remained on her team.
