There was a moment when Chevonne was just giving it, and got down on her knees in front of Avery, and Avery just sort of walked by her. That is not going to win him any Grammys. After the battle, Adam says Chevonne had a lot of determination and passion, but Avery "took it hands down." Blake also chooses Avery, for whatever reason. Christina compliments Chevonne's stage presence and her high notes, saying Avery could take a lesson from her. I agree. Christina says she was originally a fan of Avery's, pushing her button for him in the Blinds and all, but Chevonne surprised her.
Cee Lo says he was impressed with Chevonne in rehearsals, and is so impressed with her. He also says she perhaps did too much stage-wise, just because she was with Avery, the talented brick wall. Cee Lo picks Avery, because he's the golden child, and Chevonne is disappointed.
Avery says he likes Chevonne, and "cherishes" being on Cee Lo's team. Without much dilly-dallying back on stage, Christina pushes her button for Chevonne. It's the right thing to do. Chevonne seems floored with gratitude, so that probably feels nice. She tells Christina that the first song she ever sang was "I Turn to You" and is so excited to be on her team. That's sweet.
"She's good for my pop team," Christina tells Adam, still confused about how this show works.
So there we have it. Every coach has a team of ten now, and Carson is putting them through the vocal Hunger Games with something called "the Knockout Rounds." This excites me verily. I hope this time they literally have to fight, because I would like to see how scrappy some of these contestants are. The artists perform individually against another one of their teammates, selected at the last moment by the coaches. Avery will sing Daniel Rosa into smithereens, so that will be fun. The artists will choose their own songs, and it looks like no one gets to rehearse in the Great White Room of Christina Aguilera. Also, there will be no steals. Let's hope our favorites get paired with people who were montaged over.
