The Voice Live Cross Battles Recap: Were the Right Singers Paired Up?

Team Blake’s Kim Cherry performing “Poison” (Grade: C-) took on Team Kelly’s Betsy Ade performing “You Oughta Know” (Grade: D) | For the show’s first Cross Battle, Blake Shelton put in Kim and challenged reigning champ Kelly Clarkson to send in an opponent.

Team Adam’s Mari performing “My My My” (Grade: C-) took on Team Blake’s Selkii performing “Torn” (Grade: D-) | Called upon to send in a warrior, Adam selected Mari, then admitted that he was going to challenge exactly the coach we’d expect him to: Blake, who’d been busying himself teasing his frenemy about his mohawk.

When it was her turn, Karen delivered a performance that went from nicely controlled to good and growly to… eh, ultimately mediocre.

Team Kelly’s Matthew Johnson performing “Who’s Loving You?” (Grade: B) took on Team Adam’s Domenic Haynes performing “Damn Your Eyes” (Grade: A-) | When Kelly chose to send in her “beam of sunshine” Matthew, Adam struck back by choosing Domenic.

When it was Adam’s turn to speak afterwards, he encouraged viewers to imagine all the other things that his team member was besides the singer who’d just put her worst foot forward.

John suggested that “A Thousand Years” hadn’t been Celia’s favorite kind of song to perform, and it had showed.
