The Battle Rounds came to a grinding halt Tuesday night, and while we witnessed three battles, a bunch were saved for the dreaded montage.
With the Knockouts coming up and the season's big twist set to switch things up, the show might actually remain exciting all season long.
Who would have thought it? Usually, the excitement fizzles out right before the live shows, but time will tell whether the producers messing with the formula will work.
Let's break down the final three battles of the season!
Team Kelly: Sarah Grace vs. Erika Zade - “No Roots”
Sarah opened up about never having a vocal lesson before, so being in rehearsals was uncharted territory for her.
She was receptive to feedback, so that was a huge positive, but she didn't feel like Alice Merton number would benefit her voice.
The same could be said for Erika. The true kicker here was that both women turned in solid performances, and it was difficult to pick between them.
Kelly went with Sarah, and nobody voted to steal Erika.
Team Blake: Kameron Marlowe vs. Kayley Hill - “Only Wanna Be With You”
As this one kicked off, it seemed like Kameron was going to have the edge, but both performers were worthy of being kept in the battle for the recording contract.
There were no nerves here, just an excellent performance, and it's sad that one of them had to go.
Kameron won this round, and Kayley was sent home.
Team Adam: DeAndre Nico vs. Funsho - “Can You Stand the Rain”
The frustrating thing here was that both of the above performers were the worst of the night. There were no harmonies, and it made the overall performance rather weak.
Adam opted to stick it out with DeAndre while Blake decided to steal Funsho. It was a dumb move when you consider there were two much better singers sent home.
During the dreaded montage, we learned that Claire DeJean defeated Josh Davis to remain on Team Kelly, Kirk Jay beat Caeland Garner to stay on Team Blake, and Kennedy Holmes won over Lela to continue on with Team Jennifer.
Kennedy is probably the most popular artist in the show right now, so giving her the montage was a bizarre move.
