Let the battle begin. And battle they did, with Joei Fulco and Todd Michael Hall going toe-to-toe on Monday night’s episode of The Voice as the Battle Round kicked off.
In the opening battle of the night, coach Blake Shelton pitted Joei and Todd against each other for a full-voiced challenge to Tina Turner’s motivational classic “The Best.” Both made the best of it.
“Both of you were fantastic,” John Legend noted afterwards.
“That performance was like 10 shots of caffeine,” remarked Nick Jonas. “This was a really fun performance.”
In the end, there were no losers. Just winners. “Both of you deserve to be here,” Shelton explained, as he selected Joei to progress. And in a daring moment, he used his one save on Todd, beating Kelly Clarkson to the punch. “I actually think Todd can thrive in the four-way knockouts,” the country star said. “I would not want to go up against you.”
The Battle Round continues next week on NBC. Watch the performance below.
