Vocal MasterClass Discussion For Season 16 Of The Voice: The Cross Battles Part One

This week on The Voice (whom I credit for the pictures in the above collage), we journey through a new feature on the show called the Cross Battles.

Say what? Well, here you go:

This game-changing stage of The Voice will replace the Knockouts, and start with the 32 remaining contestants. Each of the four coachesKelly Clarkson, Adam Levine, John Legend, and Blake Shelton—will select one artist from their team to face off against a singer from an opposing team. For the first time in Voice history, the contestants won’t find out who they’re battling until they walk on stage.Credit: CountryLiving.Com

So, there you have it. Bye, bye Knockouts. It’s been fun but Cross Battles sounds more intriguing.

The Voice airs on Monday, April 15th and Tuesday April 16th at 8:00 PM on NBC. Enjoy.
