I spoke too soon... TV Guide had a recap....

Say it with me now, the blind auditions are ov-ah! It's time for the 48 contestants to go head-to-head with their teammates in the battle rounds. As Adam Levine so perfectly summarizes it, this is when the singers have to harmonize well together, but also totally beat down their competition vocally. So, let the games begin!

Tony Lucca vs. Chris Cauley: "Beautiful Day"
Tony gets to open the song, but his voice sounds soft in certain parts where it needs to be much stronger, and his pronunciation is a little garbled. After Chris' so-so first solo, Tony gets in some powerful screams, but Chris adds a little more style and inflection to his parts. The two harmonize well together near the end of the song, and Tony's voice comes off slightly more dominant where it really counts. After the performance, Blake goes with Chris, but Christina and Cee Lo vote for Tony. Adam likes Chris' theatrical side, but says he has to go with Tony.

Adley Stump vs. RaeLynn: "Free Falling"
It's smart of Blake to pit the two young country ingénues against each other. How many Carrie Underwood wannabes do you need? It's also nice to see Blake pushing both of their comfort zones with a classic rock song instead of a modern pop-country tune, which they both performed during the blind auditions. RaeLynn's voice cracks — probably from nerves — right out of the gate, but she quickly finds her footing and her unique vocal undertones add something extra to the song. Adley is much more consistent and on-pitch throughout her performance. She's also a little bit more dramatic. When the two sing together, RaeLynn comes off a little bit stronger. Christina, Cee Lo and Adam all go with Adley, but Blake names RaeLynn the victor.

Okay the Family and I have never watched The Voice until this season. And since I'm flipping back and forth from The Bachelor(this week I was doing that more since it was actually and interesting episode of The Bachelor) I have no idea How do they pick who is going up against who? Who picks? And did they have any extra coaches at all last year? I am asking because you said 2 different extra coaches. I honestly think that both players should have the same coaches because each coach brings something different to the table. You might be giving one of the players more of a hand up then the other one.

I think the coaches decide the match-ups.

And did they have any extra coaches at all last year?

If I'm remembering correctly, each coach only had one extra person come in (Blake had Reba McEntire, etc...)

I am asking because you said 2 different extra coaches. I honestly think that both players should have the same coaches because each coach brings something different to the table. You might be giving one of the players more of a hand up then the other one.

I agree that for any one match up, they both should have been coached by the same person which is why I commented about that.
