On April 1, Team Shakira soul singer Emily B. and country rocker Kristen Merlin belted out a duet to “I Can Love You Better” by Dixie Chicks. Both ladies were paired for their energetic performances and chose the country tune that appealed to Kristen’s country side and Emily’s rock abilities.

At the end of the performance, coach Shakira was conflicted on who to choose. “Even though Emily had crazy register,” Shakira started, “Kristen has unique tone.” When it was time for Shak to make a choice,  the Colombian songstress went with her gut and chose Kristen.
