Val Heading to the Live Shows on “The Voice”

Things are definitely going Diego Val’s way on The Voice

The 25-year-old Peruvian singer battled against his fellow Team Cee Lo member Caitlin Michele in his Knockout Round during Monday’s episode of NBC’s hit singing competition.

Val, who advanced after defeating JR Aquino in the Battle Round, performed a high octane rendition of Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way” while Michele took on Evanescence’s moody “Bring Me to Life.”

Coach Cee Lo Green didn’t seem impressed with Val or Michele, saying neither game their best performance. But he did have positive words for Val.

“I like you a lot,” declared Green, “and I think you’ve got a lot of personality.”

And that’s all it took for Green to keep Val and take his all-male team to the live shows.

“For a second I thought I was out,” said Val. “Cee Lo put a lot a faith in me and the next round I’m just gonna kill it.

But the news wasn’t so positive for another Latino contestant on Team Cee Lo…

Daniel Rosa battled against Mackenzie Bourg in his Knockout Round clash, performing Taylor Swift’s “Back to December.”

But Bourg’s visionary take on Carly Rae Jepsen’s inescapable hit “Call Me Maybe” seemed to impress the coaches more.

“Daniel, you are a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful singer,” said Green of Rosa, who had thoroughly impressed the coaches in the previous round. “You are better than your performance today.”

And with that, Rosa’s The Voice dreams are dashed this season.

Martinez Advances to Next Round on “The Voice”

The lights continue to shine bright for The Voice’s Melanie Martinez

During Tuesday night’s battle round on NBC’s hit singing competition, the adorable 17-year-old high school student and photographer faced a tough challenge from her teammate Caitlin Michele.

Team Adam’s indie darlings tackled Ellie Goulding‘s “Lights,” turning the showy song into a poignant ballad. Despite Michele being a more seasoned performer, Martinez managed to hold her own, even changing up the song’s melody enough to make the song her own.

“It was probably the prettiest and most moving performance I think of the whole day because it wasn’t overdone,” declared The Voice mentor Christina Aguilera, adding. “There is no right and wrong choice.”

Fellow mentor Blake Shelton couldn’t pick a winner either, while Cee Lo Green gave a slight edge to the gap-toothed teenager with the two-tone hair and quirky style.

“It was a beautiful song. And, it was enchanted,” professed Green. “Something about the way that you end things Melanie. That breath is so sweet and it’s sad.”

In the end, Adam Levine, who said the pair couldn’t have impressed him more, decided to follow his gut, picking Martinez.

“I am so excited,” gushed Martinez. “Oh my God!”

She now moves on to The Voice’s Knockout Round.
