The show starts off by recapping last nights performances. Let the Battle Rounds continue!
Cam Tapp VS Taga Paa – Change the World by Eric Clapton
Megan says that Cam needs to connect and not to have his eyes shut. Taga thinks that Cam has more experience and sings from the heart.
Seal, Delta and Joel like Taga. I actually like Cam better. Keith chooses Taga to give him more experience.
Peta Jeffrees VS Viktoria Bolonina – Purple Rain by Prince
This is Peta’s fave song but Viktoria doesn’t know it and feels intiminated by it. Viktoria hears Peta sing the song and tries to copy her but Delta says to her to not do that, Darren agrees.
I like both. Keith and Seal like Peta. Joel likes Viktoria.
Delta pushes her buzzer and speaks to Darren. Darren says Viktoria is a unique vocalist and loves Peta’s intensity. Delta chooses Viktoria.
Anthony Delimarta VS Michael Duchesne – Living for the City by Stevie Wonder
Ricki-Lee reckons that Anthony could sharpen up and separate some of his words a bit. Seal says that Michael needs to relax a bit more on the timing.
I don’t mind, I like both. Joel likes Michael. Delta and Keith like Anthony. Seal chooses Michael.
Nick Len VS Lakyn Heperi – Big jet plane by Angus and Julia Stone
Joel says to Lakyn that he sounds like he is in danger, like he doesn’t really care. Benjii says they have to step up. Lakyn says its not true that he does care. Nick says its also a battle with himself and his insecurities.
I like both but think Lakyn is better. Delta, Keith and Seal agree. Joel chooses Lakyn.
Sarah Lloyde VS Danni Da Ros – Hero by Mariah Carey
Sarah has the skills, talent and emotion. Danni is used to not being the winner, if it doesn’t happen for her she is used to it.
I like both but Sarah a bit more. They both get Standing O’s. Keith likes Danni. Seal and Joel like Sarah.
Delta pushes her buzzer and talks to Darren. Darren says there is something about Sarah but Delta feels she has to give Danni an opportunity. She asks them what this means for them. Danni says it means everything to her and she has been trying for so long and she needs to do this for herself and have her own moment. Sarah says we both deserve it but this is her own world and she will keep doing it till the day she dies. Delta chooses Danni.
Glenn Whitehall VS Jimmy Cupples – Plans by Birds of Tokoyo
I love this song!! Keith only just discovered this song and loves it. Keith says to Jimmy that he doesn’t need to over do it and Glenn needs to plummet down. Megan thinks that Jimmy is not comfortable, Jimmy says this song isn’t him.
I like both but think Glenn is better. Seal likes Jimmy. Joel likes both. Delta likes Glenn.
Keith pushes his buzzer and talks to Megan. Megan says one is de-constructive and one is constructive.. do you want to build or crumble? Keith chooses Jimmy. Keith says to Glenn if he does a song he should send it to him because he wants to hear more from him.
Mali-Koa Hoed VS Laura Bunting – What’s up by The Four Non Blondes
Joel says to Mali to forget perfect pitch just think passionate pitch. Laura’s challenge is going to be over doing it.
I think this song suits Laura more even though I like both girls. Delta likes Laura. Keith and Seal like Mali. Joel chooses Laura.
Chris Sebastian VS Vshrael Perquel – Firework by Katy Perry
Ricki-Lee says they both have a lot to prove, especially Chris who wants to step out of Guy’s shadow, she says make everyone forget about your brother.
I think Chris is better in this song. Joel thought they both struggled but likes Chris better. Delta disliked the performance but likes Chris. Keith doesn’t like the performance either and likes Chris because of his tone.
Seal pushes his buzzer and speaks to Ricki-Lee. Ricki-Lee says to Seal who will win this comp for you. Seal agrees that they didn’t perform the song well but Seal chooses Chris because he couldn’t tell when he made a mistake.
Next week… The final battles!
