    I did not see too many great auditions this year, but this was a very fun night of battles.



    Grey vs. Nic: Grey is a very good singer, not outstanding, but she really delivered a solid performance here. I have no idea what Nic was doing and the fact that he is still in the competition while Timyra and Donna aren't is so insulting.



    Amber vs. Timyra-Joi: Very strong battle. I thought Timyra delivered a better overall performance and had more command of the song, but Amber did have some very strong parts as well.



    Shelbie vs. Justin: This song was designed to give both some parts to sing, but Shelbie clearly won.



    Caroline vs. Anthony: There is something unique and polarizing about Caroline's voice, but the only fair thing is to judge on this performance not potential and Anthony was slightly better.



    Tessanne vs. Donna: Best battle of the night between two powerhouses. Donna is raw and has huge range, but Tessanne was slightly stronger.



    Jacquie vs. Brianna: Easy win for Jacquie. Did not see anything in Briana.moreless
