The Voice Season 21’s contestants have entered the ring for the Battle Rounds. In this next stage of the singing competition, coaches Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande, John Legend, and Blake Shelton pick two of their team members to perform a song together. After several rehearsals with their coaches and celebrity Battle Advisors, the contestants must come to the stage ready to impress because the coaches can only pick one from each battle to continue. The Voice Season 21 Episode 7, the Battle Rounds premiere, has already included some tough coach decisions.

Newcomer coach Ariana kicked off the battles with a face-off between Katie Rae and Bella DeNapoli. According to Ariana, these two singers are “opposite,” but they both have “big diva” vocals. Ironically, their performance of “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)” by Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer made Ariana and her Battle Adviser, Kristin Chenoweth, cry. A lot.
The coaches complimented Katie’s edge and Bella’s high notes, but after a tearful speech about loving both singers, Ariana chose Katie. Fans of Bella won’t have to worry, though, because Ariana also used her only save for her “Italian sister.”
For her second battle, Ariana paired two of her rockers, David Vogel and Chavon Rodgers. The artists channeled their inner pop-punk with “Sugar, We’re Going Down” by Fall Out Boy, which turned out to suit them both perfectly. Aside from Chavon’s cool name, the coaches complimented his soft, low voice and his vibrato. However, David and his cool hair were just a bit clearer. Fighting back more tears, Ariana chose David. Of course, she did promise to stalk both David and Chavon at any of their future gigs.

John paired KJ Jennings and Samuel Harness for his first battle. The two had to perform Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s “I Know What You Did Last Summer” right in front of Battle Adviser Camila herself. However, John knew they could impress. Samuel and KJ both had things to polish in rehearsals, but they wowed the coaches on stage. Kelly complimented KJ’s rock edge while Ariana noted her “precise runs,” and John called her “magnetic.” Meanwhile, Blake loved Samuel’s “cool, smokey sound.”
Samuel may have hidden in his shell during rehearsal, but that shyness was nowhere to be seen on stage. John said he “sings with passion” and shows character, which is why he chose Samuel to continue.
