The Voice kicks off its Season 5 Battle Rounds on Monday (8/7c on NBC), and from the looks of the following exclusive preview video, there’ll be misty eyes, blatant larceny and some legenday sarcasm.
Yes, indeed, not one but two coaches wind up getting emotional over the cutthroat nature of the Battles — in which two singers enter the ring for a duet, but only one survives — and Blake gleefully hits his “Steal” button in a situation where he thinks Adam made the wrong call.
Plus, I’m trying to figure out if Cher is throwing praise or hilarious bitchery in Adam’s direction during a conversation with Blake, whose team she’s signed on to help mentor through this extra-competitive phase of the competition.
Press play below for the full shebang, then weigh in on the nature of Cher’s slightly hesitant “they’re all so good!” in the comments. And for all my Voice recaps, news, exclusives and photos, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
