It’s The Battle Rounds Week Two on The Voice this week, where two competitors from the same team vie for an opportunity to advance to the Knock -Out Rounds.

And “The Steal”, where an eliminated contestant from one team can be stolen by one of the judges/coaches of another team, is still in play. I’m not sure that the judges made the best choices last week, but then that’s just me. Or is it you? What did you think of the winners of last week’s Battle Rounds and those that managed to be stolen by another Team Judge.

The Battle rounds were taped on August 13 and 14, 2013. The coaches have enlisted the help of the following guest mentors: Adam Levine brought in OneRepublic’s lead singer, Ryan Tedder; Cee Lo Green brought in Miguel; Christina Aguilera brought in Ed Sheeran; and Blake Shelton brought in Cher.

Looks like Cee Lo Green is in the news. I wonder what will happen to him in terms of his further involvement with the show once it goes live in a couple of weeks. Probably nothing. What a world!

So, sit back, pop the corn and comment away as the show moves forward. It all begins on Monday at 8:00 PM on NBC , followed by another show on Tuesday at 9:00 PM.

Enjoy and best of luck to the singers.
