In a battle of Lindsey Pavao vs. Lee Koch, both did justice to Nirvana on The Voice.

Lee channeled his inner Paul McDonald as well as Kurt Cobain on "Heart Shaped Box", and Lindsey showcased her impressive range throughout the performance.

There wasn't a lot of singing together, making it easier for both to shine and also hard to determine who shone brightest, since both were so exceptional this week.

In the toughest call of the night, Lee got the nod. Agree? Disagree?

The fun Battle Rounds are back for a second week on The Voice!

Things got emotional and downright gritty this week, and in the first matchup on Monday night, Sera Hill did her best to overwhelm Geoff McBride from the get-go.

Geoff sounded sharp both in his practice and the battle itself, and she went on to miss a pretty big note on "Chain of Fools," so it was far from a runaway.

Christina Aguilera gave it to Sera. Do you agree with that call?

Christina Aguilera could do no wrong, and no right, with this matchup.

Watching Anthony Evans square off with Jesse Campbell on The Voice was just terrific, yet it makes you wonder why she picked them to face each other.

After all, one has to go home on the spot. Does her team have that much depth that she can cut one of these two loose? It's too bad, in any event.

Jesse ultimately impressed the panel's only female coach enough to sneak through, but this was a tough one people might be second guessing.

Nothing "Ironic" about this performance: Jordis Unga shined.

In this battle of Team Blake Shelton members on The Voice, Brian Fuente looked timid and a bit outclassed, and not just because we never saw his Blind Audition.

Jordis just took control of this performance of the Alanis Morissette classic, even if Brian put forth aggressive energy and gave it his all, this one was over.

Watch Jordis advance to the next round right here:

In winning her Battle Round, Jordis Unga joins ...

  • RaeLynn, who ousted Adley Stump.
  • Cheesa, who topped Angie Johnson.
  • Chris Mann, who took down Monique.
  • Tony Lucca, who beat Chris Cauley.
  • Jesse Campbell, who edged Anthony Evans.

This was the one.

The best of The Voice's six Battle Round matchups Monday night, there was a little bit of one-upmanship going on in rehearsals between Cheesa Laureta and Angie Johnson.

Once the members of Team Cee Lo Green got to the performance, the stakes were even higher ... and the decision brutal because of their similarities and joint strength.

Who would Cee Lo pick? Find out below ...

Angie may have showcased a bit more range, but Cheesa had a bit more power on "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in the eyes of shot-caller Cee Lo, who chose her.

Do you agree with his decision? And was this not the best Battle Round of the night, or at least close to it? Hit the comments below and tell us what you thought ...

In the first Battle Round performance featuring members of Team Christina Aguilera, Chris Mann and Monique Benabou dueted on "The Power of Love."

Who would advance to the next round in The Voice's sudden death format?

This one was not hard. Blame it on the sound guys or the opponent, but Monique was getting drowned out every time her competitor sang at the same time.

She sounded quite wonderful on her own, but Chris commanded this one:

The judges praised Monique after the fact, but it seemed like Chris had this one in the bag from the get-go, and Monique was predictably sent home.

Who do you think deserved to win this Voice Battle Round?

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?

The Battle Rounds are back on The Voice!

With the four coaches each possessing teams of eight singers, the chosen few must now go up against one another ... singing the same song, at the same time.

It's high concept, but it works. In our first matchup last night, Adam Levine putted Tony Lucca against Chris Cauley for a rendition of U2's "Beautiful Day" ...

Both these guys did great, and the two of them sounded even better together, which is the downside of this process - Adam's really going to boot one afterward?

So it goes. Tony was just a little bit more believable in the eyes of Levine and the rest of the panel. As Cee Lo Green put it, Tony "articulated the song" better.

Do you think Tony deserved to advance over Chris?

The teams are set. The gauntlet has been thrown down.

After five episodes, the Blind Auditions have finally come to an end on The Voice. Each of the four coaches rounded out his/her squad last night, with an even dozen aspiring stars ready to battle it out here in Season 2.

Let's take a look at how the final rosters shook out:

Team Blake Shelton

Blake turned around after Cee Lo and Adam during Lex Land's rendition of "I Can't Make You Love Me," but he won her over with his comments ... or charm:

Adley Stump gave Blake another country singer with a great "Last Name":

Team: Lex Land, Adley Stump, RaeLynn, Gwen Sebastian, Jermaine Paul, Erin Willett, Jordis Unga, Brian Fuente, Naia Kete, Charlotte Sometimes, Jordan Rager, ALyX.
