The battle rounds for The Voice 2019 are here and new coach John Legend has a team packed full of talented contestants, hoping to become winners this season. This is Legend’s first time as a coach on the show, so he’s new to the competition, but Kelly Clarkson won her first season as a new coach on the show, so it’s anybody’s game, right? Usually, the contestants from each team compete against each other in the battles and then the losing artists are available to be stolen by other judges on the panel. Some of them are eliminated and others move on to the Knockout Rounds, but, this season, a round called the Live Cross Battles will replace the Knockouts.
Get to know more about the season 16 battle rounds for The Voice, spoilers on the battle results, a list of the contestants on Team John so far, and the performances expected, in our rundown below.
