‘The Voice’ Recap: Season 4 Battle Rounds Continue
The battle rounds continued on tonight’s episode of ‘The Voice’ (April 16), and coaches Adam Levine, Usher, Blake Shelton and Shakira were faced with some very tough decisions —and were also given the opportunity to steal singers from opposing teams.
The contestants were divided into pairs by their coaches in order to compete in a heated onstage singing duel. Levine was the only judge to use a steal tonight, but we think he used it wisely.
Here’s the recap of the latest battle rounds:
TEAM ADAM LEVINE:
BATTLE: Michael Austin vs. Warren Stone: After receiving advice from Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, the two singers delivered their own version of Jason Aldean’s ‘My Kinda Party.’ “Warren’s a little smoother, whereas Michael is rough around the edges,” remarked Shelton, the show’s resident country coach. He was rooting for Austin, whereas Usher leaned more toward Stone. [WARREN STONE WON!]
BATTLE: Josiah Hawley vs. Jeff Lewis: With the help of guest mentor Pharrell Williams, Usher prepared Hawley and Lewis for a battle round where they sang the Police’s ‘Roxanne.’ It was a pretty close call between the two thriving singers, but Usher went with Hawley in the end.

BATTLE: Audrey Karrasch vs. Jamila Thompson: The singers showcased impressive vocals with a striking rendition of Beyonce’s ‘If I Were a Boy.’ [AUDREY KARRASCH WON!]
TEAM BLAKE SHELTON:
BATTLE: Grace Askew vs. Trevor Davis: The duo delivered an entertaining performance of ‘Me and Bobby McGee,’ leaving Shelton with a difficult choice to make. [GRACE ASKEW WON!]
BATTLE: Caroline Glaser vs. Danielle Bradbery: These two extremely talented young singers fought for the win with a stellar rendition of Corinne Bailey Rae's 'Put Your Records On,' and even inspired Levine to use a steal. Click here to read more about the battle round. [DANIELLE BRADBERY WON!]
