Adley runs and hugs Kelly Clarkson when she sees her. That's probably the reaction that I would have too. Kelly just seems like a huggable human being. Adley is shaking because she's nervous about performing in front of people she admires. Kelly tells Adley to tone it down a little and show the world she can do soft and sweet and not just power house.
RaeLynn is driving in a Kia, though I don't buy she's really driving, and she gets a message from Miranda to wish her luck. These embedded commercials need to try harder. RaeLynn is wearing an iridescent purple dress. Well, if she gets eliminated, she can totally wear this to prom. She looks very cute, while Adley is dressed in a sparkly shirt that may want to be a dress (it isn't, since it barely covers her ass) and she's following the higher the hair, the closer to God principle. And then they start singing, and RaeLynn sounds terrible. Really awful, like she can't find the key and starts out on a bad note. Adley by comparison sounds pretty good, but honestly, if she were paired against someone else she'd be in trouble.
Christina says Adley has cheerleading lungs, and says that she was stronger and more confident. Cee Lo thinks RaeLynn is adorable, but gives her the mature your vocals speech and votes for Adley. Adam, who is wearing a Mister Rogers houndstooth sweater, says that he likes RaeLynn's uniqueness. Blake says they both did a good job, and rambles about country singers selling a story, before he picks RaeLynn. Carson isn't holding on to their hands. Either he's afraid of women (possible) or someone told him to chill out with the boxing stuff, but he does help RaeLynn give a little proud fist pump before she's whisked off to a backroom to get hugs from her parents. I still think Blake made a terrible decision. Cute doesn't sell records.
Christina's battle round is on. Chris Mann is up against Monique Benabou. Monique freaks out because Chris has training, and they are doing power ballad "Power of Love" (the Celine Dion one, not the Huey Lewis one... I always get more excited than I should when I hear the title). Chris, you may or may not remember, is the operatic singer and Monique does straight up pop music. I wouldn't blame you if you'd blocked that from your brain.
