"THE BATTLES, ROUND 1 PREMIERE"
03/17/2014 (08:00PM - 10:01PM) (Monday) : THE BATTLES BEGIN - THE COACHES ENLIST FELLOW ARTISTS ALOE BLACC, JILL SCOTT, MIRANDA LAMBERT AND THE BAND PERRY TO PREPARE THEIR ARTISTS FOR BATTLE - The "battle rounds" begin and the coaches enlist the help of the music industry's top recording artists to offer their knowledge and skills as advisers. Adam Levine teams up with Aloe Blacc, Blake Shelton with The Band Perry, Shakira with Miranda Lambert and Usher with Jill Scott. In this phase, the coaches pit two of their own team members against each other in a dueling duet. After the vocal face-off, each coach must choose which artist from their team is the strongest, and has the option of stealing losing artists from an opposing coach. Each coach has two steals during the battle rounds. Carson Daly ("Last Call with Carson Daly") hosts.
