In the fourth and final week of The Voice's Battles, there were some mediocre efforts, but by and large, the duets were strong enough to lead to some tough calls.

As The Voice battle rounds go, Jamie Lono vs. Jamar Rogers was a rout.

In a Battle Round matchup on The Voice Monday evening, Kim Yarbrough squared off with Whitney Myer, who sounded off at the start, but then really got things going.

She never could compete with Kim's voice or pure stage presence, however, so it looked as though she was done from the start. Such is life in a sudden-death duet.
