The Tuesday episode of “The Voice” only offered three knockout round battles, but the final one provided one that shocked three of the coaches.
Pharrell Williams chose Elyjuh Rene over Ricky Manning in that last contest after everyone agreed that Manning was the clear winner. Rene performed the Chris Brown song “With You,” and Manning sang the Miley Cyrus hit “Wrecking Ball.”
Williams said he had more work still to do with Rene, clearing the way for fellow rookie coach Gwen Stefani to steal away Manning. She said it felt like she had magically just won this season of “The Voice” with that surprise move.
Monday’s two-hour show featured six knockout rounds with 12 artists, but Tuesday’s episode was much shorter. Pop and country superstar Taylor Swift continued to assist all four coaches with advice for their contenders.
In the first match on Tuesday for Team Gwen, Taylor John Williams sang the Tears for Fears song “Mad World” and defeated Troy Ritchie with the Outkast song “Hey Ya.”
Next up for NBC’s reality program, the contestants move on to more knockout rounds next Monday. Blake Shelton is the only coach with a steal remaining.
