The Season 13 battle rounds concluded on “The Voice” Tuesday night with three epic showdowns and one final steal. Coaches Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton each paired up two artists to determine which ones would move onto the knockouts that start airing on October 30. Adam Levine completed his lineup of artists on Monday night so he was able to just sit back and enjoy the performances.
Below, check out our full power rankings from best to worst of all Tuesday Night 4 battle performances, and then take a look at our lists for Night 1, Night 2 and Night 3. As always, sound off in the comments and let us know which artists are your faves and whether or not the coaches made the right decisions this week!
1. Adam Cunningham – “Boondocks” (Team Blake; won battle)
Adam’s gravely voice and soulful range give this country singer limitless potential in what he can sing. He may not have been one of the flashiest performers in the early rounds, but mark my words: Adam Cunningham can win “The Voice.” This performance showed off a bluesy twang to his voice and his ease on stage is refreshing. Adam not only won his battle round, he won the night overall.
2. Ashland Craft – “Good Hearted Woman” (Team Miley; won battle)
Ashland just barely squeaked out a win in this battle, but it was well-deserved. Vocally, she pulled off this old country classic with believable conviction. But what sets Ashland apart is her gritty, rough-around-the-edges attitude. Stomping her way across the stage in her cowboy boots, Ashland didn’t care about looking polished. And that makes her fun and exciting to watch.
3. Megan Rose – “Good Hearted Woman” (Team Miley; stolen by Blake)
Megan may have lost this battle, but she still has time to win the war after being picked up by Blake. She’s comfortable on stage and has a very clear tone that cuts like a knife. I couldn’t help but think of LeAnn Rimes while watching her perform. After being completely forgotten after the blind auditions, Megan made a statement worth remembering with this performance.
4. Natalie Stovall – “Boondocks” (Team Blake; eliminated)
Natalie is one of the more experienced artists in the competition and it showed in this performance. She went toe to toe with Adam, who I believe can potentially win this whole season. She worked the stage like a pro and I believe Blake genuinely regretted pairing her with Adam after he saw what she could do. Her powerful performance warranted a steal, there simply weren’t any left.
5. Ignatious Carmouche – “Unaware” (Team Jennifer; eliminated)
Jennifer made a mistake eliminating Ignatious at this point in the competition. No, he didn’t have winning potential. But he won this battle hands down. He may lack confidence, but that is what a coach helps to bring out of a diamond in the rough. Ignatious had one of the most recognizable, naturally beautiful tones in the competition. I understand he didn’t give a perfect vocal here, but I still love his voice. It was sad to see him go.
6. Eric Lyn – “Unaware” (Team Jennifer; won battle)
Eric delivered a clean and impressive vocal in this battle round, but he is an absolutely forgettable performer. He can be the cleanest singer in the competition, but his tone is run-of-the-mill and he lacks natural star power. I don’t expect him to advance past the knockouts but, then again, I didn’t expect him to advance past the battles.
