The first battle of the season came from Team Blake. Young pop-country artists Brennley Brown and Lauren Duski faced off, singing “Better Man” by Little Big Town. Shelton encouraged Duski to bring more emotion to her singing. Bryan commended Brown’s distinct voice, but at only 14-years-old, Brown was having trouble connecting to the emotions of the song.
In their final performance, Brown sounded really strong, showing off her range and strong stage presence. But Duski outshone her with a more mature and connected performance, getting to the heart of the song. There are simply more layers to her artistry. Shelton saved Duski, but Levine and Stefani both swooped in to save Brown, who certainly shows a lot of potential. Brown ultimately decided to join Team Gwen, which should be a great fit for her.
Next up was a battle from Team Gwen. JChosen faced off against Kenny P, singing “I Was Made To Love Her” by Stevie Wonder.Read more at HollywoodReporter
