“The Voice” coach Blake Shelton knew exactly what he was doing when he paired up his Team Blake members — and fellow country singers — Emily Ann Roberts and Morgan Frazier to perform the 1991 Patty Loveless hit “I’m That Kind of Girl.”
Just like he envisioned, it turned into a country showdown and a showdown that had all of the coaches both pleased and a tad perplexed.
“It was hard for me to decide what I enjoyed more,” said fellow judge Adam Levine, who Shelton ‘lovingly’ referred to as ‘Mr. Clean’ thanks to his new baldhead during the segment. “The performance was so stellar or what a ding dong Blake Shelton is for putting you guys together on the same team. This is going to be an impossible decision that I’m going to enjoy not giving him any help with.”
“I’m just heartbroken right now,” Shelton said as he pondered his decision. “There is vomit in my throat. I just have to go with the person that I feel that I can make the biggest difference with. The winner of this battle is Emily Ann. I chose Emily Ann because being so young and so unique I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to work with her.”
But don’t feel too bad for Frazier, who Shelton actually compared earlier in the show to country music’s very own Carrie Underwood.
Frazier ended up being stolen by fellow coach Pharrell Williams…much to Shelton’s delight.
