The last steals of the round were used tonight.
The final night of season 12’s Battle Round went down on The Voice on Tuesday night (March 28), with coaches Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton making their last calls before heading into next week’s Knockout Round.
Lauryn Judd and Lilli Passero from Team Alicia were up first, working with Keys and DJ Khaled on “Every Little Bit Hurts,” which Keys played piano on during their first rehearsal. Keys said that even though it’s not a very well known song, she thought Passero and Judd’s tones would sound great on it. She was right, and the song choice really suited both women, who worked together well on the harmonies. It’s a rhythmically complex song, but Keys worked with them on breath control. As usually, the coach put her own spin on the arrangement, with some input from DJ Khaled as well.
Both women did very well in their final performance, even though it wasn’t the most memorable battle. They both have incredible voices, but they have some room to grow when it comes to performing. Stefani described Passero as mesmerizing but added that Judd has a unique sound. Shelton also noted Judd’s special tone, but he thought Passero’s voice sounded the strongest on the song. Keys chose Passero to advance to the Knockouts. “Lilli could win,” Levine told Keys after she made her decision.
