The Voice Season 5: The Battles Continue

Team Christina: Josh Logan vs. Michael Lynch singing Harder to Breathe by Maroon 5-- I actually really liked this battle, and the song choice was awesome. Cee Lo liked their confidence and effortlessness; he thought that Josh actually sounded a lot like Adam. Blake thought Josh did have a more masculine voice and look in comparison to Adam. Adam thought it was really fun and both did an amazing job; he said this song was his baby and they did it well. Christina praised both of them-- she said she adores Michael and said Josh has a lot of soul. Christina chose Josh to move forward.

Team Cee Lo: George Horga Jr. vs Juhi singing The Best I Ever Had by Gavin DeGraw-- The energy that both of them brought was awesome. I think in terms of growth, George has grown more. Adam thought Juhi showed range and George showed resiliency. Blake said something jumps out at him about Juhi. Christina thought both of them brought the song alive. Cee Lo said Juhi is like a young Einstein. He said George comes here with a brave heart to pursue a passion, and Cee Lo appreciated that. Adam stole Juhi and said he feels like he won the lottery. I think it's awesome that George was so happy that Juhi got stolen.

Team Blake: Austin Jencks vs. Brian Pounds singing To Love Somebody by The Bee Gees-- I liked it, but it was slightly boring as far as song choice. Christina and Cee Lo both connected with Austin more, but felt they both did well. Adam agreed, he felt Austin just took the record somewhere that he preferred. Blake chose Austin to move forward cause he left his heart right there on the stage.

Team Adam: James Irwin vs. Matt Cermanski singing Counting Stars by One Republic-- I loved this battle, the song was hot, and I think the energy was totally there. Blake thinks Matt has the bigger voice, but James has better pitch. Cee Lo chose James whereas Christina liked Matt. Adam reminded them that they are both comeback kids. Adam said it was a flawed performance so whoever moves on will have work to do. He went with James, and I think that was the right decision.

Team Christina: Destinee Quinn vs. Lina Gaudenzi singing I'm Not Ready to Make Nice by The Dixie Chicks-- I think they both were touched by the song and they tapped into the emotion that went along with it. Cee Lo felt liked Destinee lived the song. Adam felt the song didn't lack emotion, but technically there were flaws. He felt Lina had more vocal chops. Blake basically agreed with Adam. Christina was moved by the fact that Destinee was so moved and so she had to go with her. Adam stole Lina though.

Team Adam: James Wolpert vs. Will Champlin singing Radioactive by Imagine Dragons-- Amazing! Probably, almost most definitely the best battle I have heard on the voice. Both young men brought it. Blake said James surprised him more cause he doesn't look the part. Christina felt Will was right on pitch from the beginning. Cee Lo felt James' style was so unassuming, he was intrigued. Adam felt Will was a surprise, but felt there was room for both men in this competition-- I agree. Adam chose James for his team cause he feels like he can do anything. Christina scooped Will up for her team.
