Adriana Louise will be putting up her dukes in the next round on The Voice.
During Tuesday night’s episode of NBC’s hit singing competition, Christina Aguilera pitted the 22-year-old Latina singer and New York City waitress against former Hollywood Records recording artist Jordan Pruitt in one the most competitive Battle Round matchups of the season.
From the first note, it was obvious the Team Xtina members were both in fierce fighting form while performing Katy Perry’s dancetastic “Hot n Cold.” Despite Pruitt’s experience as a Disney recording artist, the contestants were quite evenly matched.
“I don’t think we’ve ever had a battle that’s so even,” declared Voice coach Adam Levine, who picked Pruitt as the victor of the battle.
Blake Shelton complimented Adriana Louise being “a strong singer,” but also chose Pruitt as the victor.
Meanwhile, Cee Lo Green cast his vote for Adriana Louise.
“You really took the opportunity to take that high note,” said Green. “Oh, you’ve got that feist[iness] about you!”
But it was ultimately Aguilera’s decision to make. And the Grammy-winning songstress was quite impressed with Adriana Louise’s performance.
“You were able to hit some crazy notes,” said Aguilera. “That’s something that you naturally do have, and that’s what I connected with.”
When it came down to the final call, Aguilera picked Adriana.
“She’s a force to be reckoned with as far as a vocalist,” said Aguilera after making her decision. “It’s beautiful to see people like Adriana step it up like true stars.”
Adriana Louise now advances to the Knockout Round on season three of The Voice.
