'The Voice': Amy Vachal Discusses What It's Like To Battle A Duo
One of the unique challenges of The Voice is that sometimes singers and duos have to go head-to-head during the battle rounds. That one-against-two matchup creates a whole different approach for the artists as they sing to keep their place in the competition.

With the battle rounds over, Team Pharrell's Amy Vachal spoke to Starpulse on a recent conference call about how she prepared for her pairing against country duo Jubal and Amanda, and how the three of them made The Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" sound that good.

"Throughout the process of preparing for the battles, there’s a lot of cha...

Half Of 'The Voice' Battle Rounds End In Steals

10/20/2015 8:41am EDT
'The Voice' Recap: Three More Steals In Six More Battles
Six more battle rounds aired during Monday night's episode of The Voice, and half of those ended in steals. There wasn't a ton of suspense as we hit the halfway point of the battles part of the competition - but that's in keeping with a season 9 that's played largely by the numbers so far.

Team Blake kicks things off, with Blind Joe facing Blaine Mitchell in a battle of "Old Time Rock and Roll." The two are working together as a great unit, which makes for an entertaining battle, even if it doesn't change the outcome. Obviously Blind Joe isn't going anywhere, so the question is if anyone w...
