Tuesday night on “The Voice,” Spensha Baker and Dallas Caroline performed Maren Morris‘ “I Could Use a Love Song” for Team Blake Shelton during the fourth and final battle round episode of Season 14. As this was the last televised battle, we knew that Alicia Keys would be using her second steal, but on whom? Since Blake ultimately chose to save Spensha for his team, Alicia promptly stole Dallas. Do YOU think coach Blake made the right decision on the reality TV singing competition? Watch “The Voice” performance video above.
“My thoughts are, I’m screwed!” joked Blake after watching Spensha and Dallas perform. “Dallas, you’re a great freakin’ singer. I mean, you truly are. You stepped up to the plate and that’s impressive. Spensha, I think you have the opportunity to blow the mind of Nashville and turn the country music industry on its ear. And now I just gotta make a decision based on what my vision is, because there’s not a clear winner here, you guys are both incredible. I’m sittin’ here going, what the hell did I do this to myself for? Spensha, you’re the winner of this battle.”
Before host Carson Daly could even ask Dallas what she wanted to say to Blake, Alicia slammed her down on her steal button. “We’ve got a steal!” shouted Carson as Blake jumped out of his seat in excitement. Dallas now rounds out Alicia’s team as her final artist heading into the knockout rounds.
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger Denton Davidson noted, “The song started with low notes, and now I understand their struggles in rehearsal. Neither of them sounded very good on the first verse. Once they were able to open up vocally, Dallas seemed to sing with more ease, but Spensha has far more passion. Frankly, I didn’t care for this battle and could take or leave either of these two.”
