Tonight we're in for another two hours of torture and bliss as night 3 of The Voice Battle Rounds begins. Bliss is the only way I know how to describe the experience of watching some of greatest artists of all time coach the up-and-comers, and then to see the amazing performances of the tutored battling team. Whew. Of course, the torture is the emotional angst we go through as we watch the coaches squirm and shake their heads as they try to figure out how to choose between two extraordinarily gifted performers. I was not prepared for how much I would squirm myself, people. Full disclosure: my brother and sister-in-law have been raving about The Voice for five years and I have come to the party for the very first time this season. Shameful, I know, but now that I see what all the fuss is about, I'm just as addicted and invested as they are. Plus, now we have one more thing ti talk about at family gatherings. Always a plus, if you knew my family.
As you might guess from the featured image I've chosen for this, our very first live blog of the season, my all time favorite battle so far was on night 2 between Alessandra Castronovo and Joe Kirk
who were coached by Adam Levine and the estimable Queen of Rock And Roll, Stevie Nicks. Their
performance of "Stay" was the most chilling and emotional rendition to ever hit the airwaves.
