I think Jej vs. Beth was kinda weird on first glance because their genres are waaay different to each other. But it worked well, so..

- Troy Ritchie vs. Menlik Zergabachew

What a great battle. Man, pre - Top 8 week Matthew could very well be in contention for the best contestant ever. I´m not kidding. Starting with the Top 8 week, it was like a completely different person on that stage.

I hate that it's not on Youtube but Aaron Gibson vs. Sa'Rayah? Miley somehow pulled this off and it was FANTASTIC:

Best battle of the season in my opinion.

 

Also, I know they were KO pairings (and it´s still weird in paper), but imagine Desz and Sid battling it out like this.

WOW! They fricking crushed it. I've listened to the studio version but this was super impressive too, and you get a lot more of their texture and individuality when they haven't smoothed it over.

Totally! I think Sarayah's tone is pretty different than DeSz's though, and the way Sarayah attacks some of the belty notes is different to me. However, they would both have probably crushed this, too.

Weird, but worked:

 

Ashley Morgan vs. Mia Z - "Put the Gun Down"

Caroline Burns vs. Mike Schiavo- "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" (yes, yes, I know. *rme*)

Hello Sunday vs. Lauren Hall - "Wrecking Ball"

Gina Constanzo vs. Peyton Parker - "Borderline"

Josh West vs. Nala Price - "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" (I know, I know; and how this got montaged while the messes that were Johnny H. vs. Julien and Kawan vs. Malik were aired, I will never know)

 

Weird, and didn't work:

 

Alisan Porter vs. Lacy Mandigo - "California Dreamin'" (how Lacy got stolen after that, I don't know; Alisan slayed, though)

Janelle vs. Tiana Boston - "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?"

Angel Bonilla vs. Gary Edwards - "When You Believe"

Gihanna Zoe vs. Halley Greg - "Thinking Out Loud"

I couldn't have said it better myself. His song choices in the later rounds were eeehhh. (he really flopped hard on his performances during his elimination week, except I think Story of My Life was somehow decent, WAMLAW on the other hand though..)

TASTE!! I so so love that battle and I thought Aaron was well-deserving of the win (I thought Sa'Rayah was better off with Alicia anyway)

Adding Lindsay vs Zae....not sure if it worked tho, considering one was MUCH stronger than the other in the battle. I mean, after their blinds I would’ve never thought of them as a battle pairing that could work, even tho I didn’t hate the song for them, they were just off for some parts. I’m gonna say it worked, considering the song choice and overall battle worked for Lindsay (pop-musical theatre and was stronger in the battle) but it worked for Zae because... he won ig lmao

zae just got overpowered to me. his tone is cool, but i would say its comparable to dana vs. devan, almost (but dana vs. devan was another level, probably)
