Tuesday’s shortened version of ‘The Voice’ features one big steal

A shortened one-hour version of “The Voice” on Tuesday only televised three actual battles, most of which could not compare to the ones from Monday’s show. The result only brought one coach’s steal at the very end of the program.

These were the second of several battle rounds over the next few episodes after concluding all of the blind auditions last week. For this seventh season, the returning coaches are country star Blake Shelton, winner of seasons two, three, and four, and Adam Levine (Maroon 5), champ of seasons one and five.

New coaches/judges are Producer of the Year Grammy winner Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani (No Doubt).

Each of the four had selected a dozen contenders for their teams leading into this week. The new contests have the hopefuls facing off to either move on, be knocked out, or possibly even be saved by another coach.

Psst: Here’s how to predict reality TV shows and win prizes

In the matches on Tuesday night:

Team Pharrell chose Taylor Phelan over Jordy Searcy with the song “Breakeven” by The Script.

Team Adam selected Alessandra Castronovo over Joe Kirk with the tune “Stay” from Rihanna.

For the final segment, Team Gwen picked Troy Ritchie over Menlik Zergabachew with the Hall and Oates song “Maneater.” Williams then used his final steal to bring Zergabachew to his team.

In between, the producers chose to only reveal winners in three other battles rather than actually showing their performances to the home audience. Levine chose Rebekah Samarin over Clara Hong. Shelton kept Grant Ganzer over John Martin and Tanner Linford over Justin Johnes.

  1. So upset they are using Taylor no talent Swift for mentor. Can’t stand her prancing around or her voice. The only ones that like her are 8-12 years old Even my 12 and 14 year old granddaughters can’t stand her anymore and do not listen to her. She is horrible live and she the one who needs mentor.

  2. Disappointed in seeing some of the ones with excellent voice quality & control and stage presence who get sent home while those in pretty little short & low cut dresses leaving absolutely nothing to an imagination being selected wasting a spot in the country section…..what a shame…Perhaps they would benefit from a video of the old school showing how Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells, Tammy Wynette, Lynn Anderson dressed!!! Even the ones following that group of “Ladies”… I really love the new coaches Pharrell and Gina!! And the positive reinforcement given by Pharrell comes right from his heart..Love the VOICE!!!
