The Voice USA Battle Rounds!

This week, the Blind Auditions ended and The Voice Battle Rounds began! The regular coaches invited guest mentors Gwen Stefani (Team Blake), Sean Diddy Combs (Team Pharrell), Patti LaBelle (Team Christina) and Tori Kelly (Team Adam) to assist their teams. All of the mentors did a great job (Sean Diddy Combs and Patti LaBelle were amazing in their roles) and the Battle Rounds are off to a strong start!

There have been several stand-out performances and a few well-deserved steals so far, including Adam’s pairing of Katie Basden and Ryan Quinn – which resulted in a steal by Blake Sheldon!

Enjoy their performance of Paul McCartney’s classic song Maybe I’m Amazed – along with his original rendition for comparison!

Maybe I’m Amazed – Paul McCartney

Have an amazing week!

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
