“THE BATTLES, PART 1”
03/25/2019 (08:00PM – 10:00PM) (Monday) : The “Battle Rounds” begin. The artists take the stage for the “Battle Rounds”! The coaches enlist music industry powerhouses Charlie Puth, Kelsea Ballerini, Brooks & Dunn and Khalid to prepare their artists for a duelling duet. After the vocal face-off, each coach must choose which artist from their team is the strongest, and has the option of stealing losing artists from an opposing coach. Each coach has two steals during the “Battle Rounds.” Winning artists will proceed to the brand new round, the “LIVE Cross Battles,” all in the hopes of being named the next Voice champion. Carson Daly (“TODAY Show”) hosts.
The Voice live dates. April 15/16 and 22/23
The Battles on 3/25, 4/1, and 4/8 (3 Mondays). And Tuesdays come back 4/9?
