Thus far, we’ve found Usher to be a smart, talented coach on The Voice 2013. But all that’s about to change. The R&B superstar clearly made one of the dumbest decisions possible when he pitted adorable powerhouse Jessica Childress against R&B vocalist Vedo in the April 22 battle rounds.
This sneak peek clip of their duet to Bruno Mars’s “Locked Out of Heaven” may feature one of the best battles we’ve heard in the last four seasons. They’re a force to be reckoned with on stage and execute flawless harmonies.
And only one can stay on Team Ush. Or can they? In a preview for this week’s battles, we learn that “one new coach” makes a shocking steal that changes the game. Since Shakira already has both of her steals, she can’t be the new coach the voiceover refers to.
We think Usher will try to steal one of his own contestants. And considering this battle is so incredible, we have a feeling that he will attempt to steal whoever the loser is. We’re not sure if his master plan will work yet, but it definitely will bring some added drama to The Voice stage.
Steals aside, who would you pick to win this battle, Vedo or Jessica? Vote below!
