Season 12 of The Voice has finally made it to the battle rounds, and this year’s competition is as fierce as ever. Blake Shelton found himself trying to decide between two of his best female talents. Lauren Duski and Brennley Brown joined forces for a rendition of Little Big Town’s recent hit, “Better Man.”
A ten-year age gap made a big difference when it came to their performance styles. 25-year-old Duski channeled the grace and vocal tone of LBT’s Karen Fairchild, while Brown focused more on funneling uncontrolled emotion into the heartbreak tune.
Watch their full performance below.
While Shelton eventually ended up picking Duski to move on to the next round, it’s not the end of the line for Brown. Shelton’s girlfriend and fellow judge Gwen Stefani chose to steal Brown after singing her praises throughout the night.
So, does Duski have enough staying power to make it to the finals? Team Blake fans will just have to stay tuned to find out who will earn the title of season 12’s champion.
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 7 p.m. CT on NBC.
