Worst:   For a 16 year old girl and a 39 year old man, this is as bad as it gets.    Chevel Shepherd v. Mikele Buck “You Look So Good In Love”     

The battle turned out fine. I’m specifically referring to the lyrics. If you don’t understand my point, I don’t know what else I can tell you. There are literally thousands of songs Kelly could have c

As bad as this was, it didn't surprise me in the slightest. Blake sucks at song choice with anything but country (and even then he has his moments). Whenever he has pop artists (or anything even remot

A lot of S18's battle song choices sucked, I mean, "What Ifs", "Señorita, "Scared to be Lonely", "Adorn", " Missing You", "Circles" and "Counting Stars" didnt fit the respective pairings that got them in my opinion.

 

Also, let me add "High Hopes" for Joanna and Matthew in S17. Both good singers, but the song didnt work for them at all.

yeah High Hopes was awful. Joana and Matthew both deserved a better song and a place in the Knockouts.

Yep. All of those are awful.

For real. No wonder why it got montaged. "Whiskey Lullaby" is another choice that seemed questionable for a 15 year old girl (Skylar) last season. What do they have in common? Both Team Kelly battles.

 

Continuing the theme of awkward battles, CammWess actually had to sing the line "I love it when you call me Señorita" ,and you could see how uncomfortable he was while singing it.

Speaking of Kelly, the song choice for Brynn and Dylan was questionable too, even though it worked out. A 14 year old and a 21 year old. Hmmm.....

In seasons 16-18 she didn't have any questionable teen-adult pairings, but then Skylar vs Tanner happened.

 

Edit: Nvm, season 16 had the equally questionable Mikaela vs The Bundys 😵

I think the song itself did fit them, but they sang it without understanding the message of it. They were smiling ear to ear, which in some way is understandable given the excitement, but you´re singing a song about heartbreak, come on.

Unpopular opinion: I actually like this battle. The song choice could have been better but there were some good moments there.

Flashbacks of Reagan smiling ear to ear singing "Complicated", but she was a child, so it's more excused there.

I love how everyone is only bashing Kelly for teen-adult pairings. I didn't realize there were age groups on The Voice. 😒

 

Last I checked, 14-year-old Levi was paired with 26-year-old Jamal in S18, just saying. 🙄

As much as I love Shawn, I never understood why he sang that line in the song. That should be a line that only Camilla sings imo lol 😂

It´s not about teens and adults being paired, it´s the songs they are given. Chevel/Mikele and Tanner/Skylar were given songs that involved romance, and it´s obviously going to be awkward singing about love to someone who´s underage. (And in Mikele´s case, old enough to be his daughter 💀)

 

It´s not even 100% confirmed that Kelly picked the songs any way.

That's what I initially thought u meant but then @TeamAudra out of nowhere mentions Brynn and Dylan's battle performance. "...Ready for It?" is definitely not a romantic song imo and their rendition of it was really well done 🤨

In the middle of the night, in my dreams

 

You should see the things we do, baby

 

In the middle of the night, in my dreams

 

I know I'm gonna be with you

 

So I take my time

 

Are you ready for it?

This actually sounds MORE uncomfortable than a sweet romantic song.

The song isn't a crooning romantic ballad that one would sing to their lover. Don't sexualize everything. 🙄

 

Brynn and Dylan's performance was really well done in a non-awkward way. It was one of my favourite battles in S14. 😌

There are literally thousands of songs Kelly could have chosen for Brynn, Chevel and Skylar, yet her choices contained lyrics and content inappropriate for their ages. The end.

It's a freaking Taylor Swift song that everyone hears on the radio all the time. Stop sexualizing performances between a guy and a girl unless either party clearly looks uncomfortable singing it. It says a lot more about you and your mindset than it does about the artists or the coach. 🙄

Nobody sexualizes performances between two girls or two boys, even though homosexual love is a thing. I don't know why people are so willing to sexualize performances between a guy and a girl. 🙄
