During Monday’s episode of “The Voice” live Cross Battles, The Bundys of Team Kelly Clarkson faced off against Andrew Sevener of Team Blake Shelton. Of note, this is the first time in “The Voice” history that a trio has competed for the title, but did they out-perform the solo country star? Now that NBC’s reality TV show has given the power to the people, we want to know who YOU think won this live Cross Battle. Watch “The Voice” videos above and below, and then be sure to tell us down in the comments section which artist you voted for.
“The Letter” is the song that The Bundys chose for this week’s Cross Battle, with Kelly praising their unique harmonies. “That sibling harmony is so beautiful, and it is so hard to do that in the live setting and have everybody blending well for TV,” Kelly noted. “You all did a fantastic job at that. It’s just a beautiful thing that is not present on TV. So I really hope America agrees with me and votes you all through. Your song next week is so killer. I cannot wait for America to see more of you.”
Andrew, meanwhile, settled on the country classic “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde” for his song choice. Blake proclaimed, “I gotta say, man, you just literally strolled around the stage like you were looking for some change you dropped, burning the place down with your voice. It was unbelievable. I’m telling you, Travis Tritt watches this show and he is freaking out right now because that’s a hard song to cover and do it as well as he does. Country music fans are losing their minds right now, man, congratulations.”
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the live Cross Battle: “The uptempo ‘The Letter’ gave The Bundys a chance to have some fun with each other on stage, but when they weren’t in their harmonies they struggled to really grab a hold of the song. Overall the performance felt like the whole team performances that the show does on results night throughout the season–a handful of solo artists awkwardly making a song into a group effort. Andrew’s ‘Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde’ was a much more lived in performance and he really dug into the vocal with his grit and rock rasp.”
