The Battles stage ended with on a high note last night with a showstopper episode, featuring more thrilling performances and a first-ever three-Talent Battle!
It’s been an exciting four weeks, where two Talent in each Team went head-to-head, Battling one song for a spot in the Live Shows.
Starting off last night's episode was #TeamWaje’s Zorah and Shapera, singing Adam Lambert’s “Whataya Want From Me”. So fierce was their performance, “Fire!” was how Timi could best describe it before it was down to Waje to decide and she picked Shapera for the Lives.
Who could forget #TeamYemi’s J’Dess and Chris Rio’s performance!? *In IK’s voice* “Wooh child!” The chemistry! It reminded one of the time Coach Timi say, “It’s like couple’s retreat.” It was victory all round, as both Talent made it through, after Yemi picked Chris Rio and J’Dess picked Waje after she, Timi and Pato pressed their STEAL buzzers.
Meanwhile, #TeamPato’s Voke and Eseqlic brought out the light-hearted side of the competition, with their theatrical rendition of Tiwa Savage’s song titled “Wanted”, sending the Coaches in stitches. Voke won the Battle round.
It was another double victory for #TeamWaje’s Arewa and Amarachi, as both ladies made it through to the Lives, after Arewa won the Battle and Amarachi was given a lifeline to the Lives by Timi’s STEAL.
Ending the night was a battle that has never been seen on The Voice, between THREE Talent! You may remember that Timi played “naughty Coach” during the Blinds and added one extra act to his Team, making it 13 Talents, instead of 12.
Now, for his final pairing last night, he put Sandra, Victor and sisters Tara & Bella in what turned out to be the highly contested Battle ever. There had to be one winner in the end and that was Victor.
That right there, was an amazing end to this stage of the competition! We have seen so brilliant performances and sadly, said goodbye to some Talent and up next, is the beginning of the Lives this Sunday. You don’t want to miss it!
