Since he first joined “The Voice” this season, Pharrell Williams has been something of wizard. The reigning Producer of the Year at the Grammys has basically taken almost every artist he has desired for his team. But on Monday’s episode, Adam Levine stole his thunder… twice!
With battle rounds on stage for a third time, the audience saw 12 remaining contenders face off in six challenges. It is very possible Team Pharrell chose the wrong winner not once but twice, with Team Adam reaping the results.
The first of these had the soulful Blessing Offor and 15-year-old Katriz Trinidad performing the Stevie Wonder song “Do I Do.” Williams selected Trinidad as his champ, so Levine immediately hit his buzzer and brought Offor over to his team.
In the last battle of the evening, it was a Team Pharrell effort again in which he chose DaNica Shirey over Toia Jones when they sang the Beyonce tune “Halo.” It once again seemed like he picked the weaker of the two contestants, and Levine stole Jones away.
To make it an even better night for Team Adam, the artist that might win the whole season was performing. Matt McAndrew defeated Ethan Butler in a fun guitar/singer duet of the Coldplay song “Yellow.” All four coaches agreed that McAndrew is a future star that could prevail over everybody this year for the seventh season.
In the other matches Monday night:
Team Adam chose Damien over Kelli Douglas with the Amii Stewart song “Knock on Wood.”
Team Blake picked Taylor Brashears over Bree Fondacaro with the Linda Ronstadt song “You’re No Good.”
For Tuesday’s final night of battle rounds, the only one with a steal remaining is Stefani. The other coaches have used theirs up in the past three programs.
