The Voice Recap: Bodie, Jaeden Luke – Battles

Was it hot on The voiceor was it just Camila Cabello’s reaction to a particular candidate‘s Battle? As you can see from the photo above, the NBC sing-off’s newest coach has been left a little flustered by a performance by the contender, which jokingly made her call her boyfriend. But did Jaeden Luke defeat his own trainer, Blake Shelton, or did he need a save from Camila, John Legend or Gwen Stefan? Read on as we round up his and all of Tuesday’s battles.

Team Camila: Orlando Mendez (Grade: B) defeated Ava Lynn Thuresson (Grade: C+) on “Rocket Man” | Before the two had even sung a note of their rural Elton John cover, I expected Orlando to lose this fight. While the self-proclaimed Cuban cowboy isn’t the greatest singer of all time, he’s got charm for days and that it-factor for weeks. While the duet never really came together, he dropped a note here that was long enough to take us all the way home on the range. Ava, in turn, impressed with the versatility of her whistles, but the poor child tugged at her nerves as if they were perfume.

Team Gwen: Cara Brindisi (Grade: A) def. Jay Allen (Grade: A) on “Leather and Lace” – Jay Stolen by Blake | As beautiful as Cara’s voice is – and so is she is simply stunning, simply gorgeous! — I was certain there was no way she would hit Jay, not after his trainer advised him to lean on his softer side. A little reluctance at the beginning made it all the more breathtaking as he went full-throttle later in the song. As John put it, Cara was “perfect” and Jay was just “more convincing.” Shows (again) what I know. Ha.

The Voice Recap Bodie Jaeden Luke BattlesTeam Legend: Emma Brooke (Grade: C) def. Nia Skyfer (Grade: B) on She’s All I Wanna Be | In rehearsals it certainly seemed like Emma’s stiffness was going to be a problem; Even when she stopped, counselor Jazmine Sullivan encouraged her to put some intensity in her eyes. Instead, Emma spent much of the battle looking sunny and sounding like she’d been put in all the wrong genre. Technically she’s almost certainly the better singer, but this angsty Tate McRae act worked much better for Nia, who rocked and served attitude on a silver platter.

The Voice Recap Bodie Jaeden Luke BattlesTeam Blake: bodie (Grade: B+) def. Jaeden Luke (Grade: B) on As Long as You Love Me – Jaeden Stole by Camila | I have to admit, this duet crept up on me. At first, the stripped down Bieber redo felt like something of a slumber party. But then Bodie let go in his full voice, as fat and clear as a red streak on a beige wall, and I said, “Okay, over. Finished. He’s got that in his pocket.” He didn’t, however, as Jaeden soon proved he was more than just a smoky singer and Camila flirt. His trainer compared his approach to Chris Isaaks on Wicked Game – never a bad thing – and his falsetto even made me think, “Well, he’s more than just a memorable look.”

Team Camila: Reina Ley (Grade: A) defeated Grace Bello (Grade: B-) on “Time After Time” | From what we heard from the kids at rehearsals, Reina had a bigger advantage than you’d find with a hatchet. For one, Grace struggled. Second, after her memorable blind, she seemed more nervous than one might think. And in the moment of truth, she delivered a performance that was pretty… and pretty boring. Reina however… wow. The 13-year-old looked and sounded like she was born for this stage. Both in voice and in presence, she obsessed her Cyndi Lauper cover.

The Voice Recap Bodie Jaeden Luke BattlesTeam Gwen: Justin Aaron (Grade: A) defeated Destiny Leigh (Grade: A+) on “No More Drama” – Destiny saved by Gwen | You can usually guess where a battle is going by using words like “knocked out” to one contestant (Jay) and, uh, “nice tone” to the other (Destiny) in the rehearsal. But holy crap here! Destiny not only faced the situation, she skipped it. Her long notes were so long they should have come with rests! And there was a fantastic roughness to her voice that really sold the emotion of the Mary J. Blige hit. Justin was, predictably, amazing – an absolute powerhouse. But Destiny… my goodness. total revelation.
