The Blind Auditions are over for The Voice
season 14, and the show moves on to the Battle Rounds. Although the Battles last far too long -- mainly because they're paired with the virtually identical Knockouts -- The Voice
starts things off strong with this first round.
Nearly every coach brings out one stellar performance from their team, with the exception of Alicia Keys. Alicia is playing it reserved. While that doesn't make her Battles particularly fun to watch, it may be the smartest route to victory, as the other coaches (but particularly Kelly Clarkson and Adam Levine), end up giving up some of their biggest talents to other teams.
