'The Voice' Recap: Usher Uses His Last Steal for 'Brave' Singer


Usher saves the final steal for a strong performer, which is powerhouse singer Cierra Mickens from Team Shakira.

The Battles: Round 1 was over on "The Voice" Tuesday night, March 25. Six other pairs were competing for the last six spots heading into The Battles: Round 2 which will begin next week with Coldplay's frontman Chris Martin as the guest mentor for all teams.

The first duet/duel that night was presented by Sam Behymer and Cary Laine of Team Adam Levine who sang "Give Me Love" by Ed Sheeran. Both were pitchy throughout the performance, but Blake Shelton commended them for "captur[ing] the mood" of the song. Adam eventually went with the "quiet thunder" Sam.

Adam later pitted Christina Grimmie against Joshua Howard for a rendition of "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift. The Maroon 5 frontman chose Christina.

Kaleigh Glanton and Noah Lis of Team Blake did Michael Buble's "Everything" which at first seemed to fit Noah's vocal better, but Kaleigh showed her vocal abilities. Usher called it "too lounge" and chose Kaleigh over Noah because she didn't showcase her own unique tone. Adam pointed out that Noah was in his comfort zone with the song choice, so he was rooting for Kaleigh. Blake agreed with Adam, declaring folk-pop singer Kaleigh as the winner.

Two other singers from Team Blake, Cali Tucker and Ryan Whyte Maloney, covered "What's Love Got to Do with It" by Tina Turner. Ryan came out as the winner in the vocal battle.

Shakira paired two powerhouse singers Cierra Mickens and Emily B. for a performance of Sara Bareilles' "Brave". Guest mentor Miranda Lambert advised both singers to leave their hearts on the stage which they did. Shakira was torn between the two but decided to keep Emily, and Usher who still had the last steal used it to save Cierra.

Shakira rounded out her team with Kristen Merlin, who found herself in a country battle with Lindsay Bruce, singing "Turn on the Radio" by Reba McEntire.
