“You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey, You’re as sweet as strawberry wine, You’re as warm as a glass of brandy.”
Never have truer words been sung by two battling contestants on The Voice.
The battle rounds kicked off Monday night (Nov. 9), as Team Legend’s Bailey Rae went head-on with Sid Kingsley with a cover of Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey.”
It was smooth, sweet, warm. And the coaches loved what they saw. “Sid has a whole package going on, but I love Bailey’s voice a lot,” noted Gwen Stefani.
“Bailey, you have such a gift. It’s really really beautiful and I love your tone,” Kelly Clarkson enthused.
On this occasion, Kingsley had the edge. At least that’s what Stefani, Clarkson and Blake Shelton figured.
“I think both of you are incredible,” John Legend said. And with that, he surprised his fellow coaches and went with Bailey Rae.
Not so fast. As time ticked away, Clarkson stole Kingsley. Watch it all unfold below.
