Cee-Lo Green's proteges Angie and Cheesa face off each other in 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' duet, while Christina Aguilera pits Anthony against Jesse in 'If I Ain't Got You' performance.
Gearing up to enter the battle rounds in the "The Voice" season 2, NBC has released some sneak previews of the contestants' performance. In team Cee-Lo Green, Angie Johnson will meet Cheesa in "Total Eclipse of the Heart" duet, while Christina Aguilera will have her proteges Anthony Evans and Jesse Campbell showing off their vocals when covering "If I Ain't Got You".
Commenting on Angie and Cheesa's version of the Bonnie Tyler song, executive producer Mark Burnett gushed, "What a great, great version of that song. I've always loved that song. I thought it was a great, great choice that Cee-Lo makes in that battle."
"It's tough to decide who should win," he further said of the two female singers. "They're still in competition, but they're doing justice to the song and justice to Cee-Lo. And working as a unit, which I think is such a great element of this show."
Burnett additionally pointed out that in the battle rounds, people can see how "The Voice" is different to other singing competitions. "The big difference the Voice has is that, while the [singers] are competing, they still help each other as artists," he told EW. "Yes, someone will win and someone will lose. But they are both human beings. It makes the show great. It's a real celebration of art."
"The Voice" will return with the first part of the battle rounds on Monday, March 5 at 8/7c on NBC.
