During "The Battles," coaches choose two singers from their team to perform a duet together. This duet serves as the battleground during which the singers must work together to compliment one another while also showcasing their unique singing talent. After the battle, the duo's coach will determine which singer he or she believes "won" the battle based on singing and stage presence. Whichever contestant the judge picks will move on to the Knockout round of the competition. The other three judges will then be given the opportunity to steal the losing contestant. Coaches are allowed one steal during The Battles. If the contestant is not stolen, he or she will be sent home. If Season 15 follows the pattern of Season 14, viewers can expect to see 6 duet battles Monday evening.

During "The Battles," coaches willreceivee aid from an outside mentor to give singers notes during practice. The Season 15 mentors are as follows:

  • Keith Urban - Team Blake
  • Thomas Rhett - Team Kelly
  • Halsey - Team Jennifer
  • CeeLo Green - Team Adam

The Voice 2018 Blind Auditions 7: Who Joined A Team Tonight?

#4 - Katrina Cain

This soon-to-be bride performed "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac and soon caught the attention of both Kelly and Adam, but unfortunately neither could add her to the team. By the end of her song, she managed to catch the attention of Jennifer and Blake who both chimed in at the same time. Katrina chose Team Blake.

#5 - Matt Johnson

This young singer was heavily pursuing a musical career until his mother got a cancer diagnosis. He has been spending his time caring for her but has made time to audition for the Voice. He has been auditioning since Season 1 and hopes this year will finally be his time. Johnson performed "Never Too Much" by Luther Vandross.

The Voice Season 15 Battles 1 Recap and Results: Who Made it to the Knockouts?

Battle #1: Sandy Redd vs Cody Ray Raymond

Kelly teamed these two up to perform "Cry to Me" by Solomon Burke. These singers are soulful powerhouses and with the mentorship of Kelly and Thomas Rhett, this performance will be one worth listening to.

Cody Ray comes on to the stage strong and you can't help but appreciate the rasp in his voice. When SandyRedd hits the stage, though, she brings with her not only an incredibly deep and sultry voice that is reminiscent of Tina Turner, she has a stage presence that draws you in as well.

Both singers are truly talented and support one another so incredibly well, this will be a hard battle to judge.

"I'm excited because I get to try to pick one of you up," says Adam.

"Individually you all are superheroes, but you're Avengers together," said Blake.

Kelly tells Cody he reminds her of Chris Stapleton but then lets SandyRedd know she's the best singer she's ever heard. It seems SandyRedd may be winning but in the end, Kelly chooses Cody Ray. SandyRedd isn't in any trouble though. As soon as the coaches can, all three press their buttons to try to steal her.

After hearing all the arguments from the judges, SandyRedd chooses Team Jennifer.

Battle #2 - Joey Green vs. Michael Lee

The second battle of the evening has Team Blake singers Joey Green and Michael Lee pitted against one another. Under the mentorship of Blake and Keith Urban, the pair work out their rendition of "A Thing Called Love" by Bonnie Raitt. Both singers performed well, but Micheal seemed to be putting more passion into his performance, which may just propel him to a win.

"Michael, your voice fills the room," said Jennifer.

"Joey, your voice is so laid back, you don't even have to think about it," said Kelly.

After some deliberation, Blake chooses Michael Lee. Unfortunately, none of the judges used a steal on Joey Green, so he'll be headed back home.

Battle #3: Colton Smith vs. Patrique Fortson

The final battle of the evening pits Team Jennifer members Colton Smith and Patrique Fortson against each other. The pair is mentored by Jennifer and pop singer Halsey. Jennifer has chosen "God Gave Me You" by Blake Shelton.

Patrique comes in with the first verse and it's smooth and beautiful. Colton enters next with his big a powerful voice and holds his own, but with Patrique's incredible range and smooth transitions across it, Colton will be hard pressed to win this battle. Both singers put on an amazing performance and it won't be surprising to see a steal follow this round no matter who wins.

"Both of you shined even brighter than ever before," said Kelly.

"It was like a battle of the dude's with the best range," said Adam.

The decision was difficult but in the end, Jennifer chose Patrique.

Luckily for Colton, Blake uses his steal to make Colton the newest member of Team Blake.
