On April 23, Team Shakira‘s singers Brandon Roush and Shawna P. belted out a duet to Janis Joplin’s hit record “Piece of My Heart.” Brandon came into rehearsals nervous battling Shawna, who has been singing since before he was born! Shawna felt very confident about the song choice, as her sound is very similar to Janis's, but realized that there was a lot riding on this battle as she is the oldest person in the competition.

The battle between “youth and experience” began and both rockers came out throwing their vocals as best as they could. The singers were complimented on their skill and control. While it was a tough decision to make, Shakira chose to keep rocker Shawna P. on her team.
