One steal and one save per each coach tonight…it is again live. What can possibly go wrong?

Here is our coverage of the first night in the new Cross Battle format.

In summary, the coaches praise their own team member and are smart not to offend the opponent just in case they may want to steal one of them. Bloated bias does not make great tv, quips and takedowns do, the non-competing coach(es) tend to offer the best perspective of the event.

Surprise performances came from Presley Tennant and Rod Stokes. Both were remarkable in being underdogs and showing extreme confidence to the audience did not go unnoticed. Whether that converts into votes will be reported tonight.

The Countdown to the final

4/15 – Top 32 perform. 16 per day with live voting. Then the comeback. Top 3 from each team advances, the coach saves one for a top 17.
4/22 – Top 17 perform – they’ve done 20 in 2 hours although it was really rushed, so maybe they could have several blocks of time with 2 performance, a la SandyRedd and Chevel in the T13 last season. 13 from PV, 14th from instant save for a bottom four.
4/29 – Top 14 perform – Slightly more faster-paced than a T13 show and three go home.
5/6 – Top 11 perform – three go home again.
5/13 – Top 8 perform – Typical bloodbath…
5/20 – Finale week, final 4 perform, winner, crowned.
