The Voice Battle Round: Adley Stump vs. RaeLynn

by at . Comments

RaeLynn, the mononymed aspirant on The Voice's Team Blake Shelton, got to kick off last night's Battle Round episode by being mentored by her idol, Miranda Lambert.

Also Blake's wife, FYI. Not a bad sign for the youngster.

RaeLynn got off to a rough start against Adley Stump, however, on "Free Fallin'" and was seemingly manhandled at the onset, before recovering a little bit later.

Was it enough to save her in this matchup? Take a look:

Blake opted to keep RaeLynn in a bit of a tough call, She has a nice way about her, but vocally, she fell short a bit on this one. Maybe he sees greater potential?

Who do you think Blake should've kept in this battle?

OMG! Are you kidding me? Adley had it so over Raelynn. She had the confidence, experience and voice and presence. Raelynn's voice is sweet but she missed notes and started out flat. I can't believe that. Blake chose her. It was clear to everyone else who the better singer is. Why not Blake?

PLEASE BLAKE PLEASE, do NOT be an idiot. Its clear you were influenced by Raelynns coach and NOT her singing. The fact that Adley was ROBBED had to do with Raelynn missing notes and sounding flat, and NOT that some people disagree with her singing style !! Missed notes by ANYONE should not = a battle round winner. Period !!! Lost all respect for Blake !!!

Like everyone else, this was a real head scratcher. When he chose raelynn, I was in total shock. She missed 3/4 of the notes and obviously can't hold a note either. It's like the "Saw" movies, in the first movie when Saw gets up off the floor, the last person you would suspect.

Almost turned off The Voice after this one. Shame on you Blake.

Oh my Goodness Blake are u like deaf. You know just as well as I do that Raelynn did not sound better than Adley. Adley blew it up. She did the damn thing. Girl keep up the good job.

Adley was clearly the best singer. Blake was swayed by his wife's influence tutoring Raelynn and the fact that she is a Miranda look-alike. Not fair to Adley

I think they both did good but Adley owned the song, she should have won.

THIA WAS A JOKE! I AM SO ANGRY RIGHT NOW! UGH, ADLEY DESERVED IT. SHE HAS LESS EXPERIENCE. SHE'S BEE SINGING FOR ONLY TEN MONTHS AND ALREADY OUT-SHINED RAE LYNN WHO HAS AN IMMATURE YOUNG VIOCE. RAE LYNN ONLY WON BECAUSE SHE ALWAYS SUCKS UP TO BLAKE BECAUSE SHE LOVES HIS WIFE. IN THE END HIS DECISION WAS BASED ON PERSONAL FEELINGS ABOUT HOW MIRANDA WAS RAE LYNN'S IDOL. THESE THOUGHTS SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO THE TABLE. THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN LEFT AT HOME BECAUSE THEY CLOUDED HIS JUDGEMENT. ADLEY WON HANDS DOWN!

What was Blake thinking? I really thought he was smarter than that. My entire family(hubby, 2 sons, sister and myself) all thought that Adley was soooo much better. Raelynn might have potential down the road but Adley already can sing with a voice that people actually enjoy hearing....not so with Raelynn. I think Blake made a BIG mistake on this one. I sort of lost faith in his ability to pick talent....not sure I am on Team Blake anymore.
