Reba McEntires team conveys the emotion in a big way The voice Battle Rounds!
On Monday, Reba paired two of her younger teammates, Alison Albrecht and Angelina Nazarian, for a Battle duet of Lauren Daigle’s “You Say” — a song that Reba told the singers “touches my heart.”
This was evident during rehearsal, when Reba burst into tears several times as she instructed Alison and Angelina to bring the emotion into their performance.
“When you sing this song, it’s very humbling,” she explained. “It exposes your soul.”
Their second run-through hit the nail on the head for Reba, who broke down again as she praised the singers.
“By the time they were done, I started crying,” Reba said through tears. “That’s the kind of reaction you want from an audience.”
“If you can touch someone’s heart like you just touched mine, you’ve done something amazing,” she praised.
However, when they took the stage, the performance was powerful, but for Reba it lacked some of the heart they brought to rehearsal.
“Emotion means a lot to me,” she reiterated. “You did that during rehearsals. You were quiet, you had meaning. You saw what it did to me, I cried. Today you went back to how you did it the first time.”
However, Reba assured, “You are both great vocalists, and I am very proud of you.”
That said, Reba followed the recommendation of fellow coaches Niall Horan And Gwen Stefaniwith Alison being named the winner of the battle.
ET spoke with Gwen ahead of this season’s Battles, where she talked about how surreal it is to return to The voice without hubby Blake Shelton by her side. The Cowboy left the NBC singing competition earlier this year 23 seasons.
“It kind of feels like (my) first season, before I even knew it existed,” she said. “It’s a little weird, but it’s also like I’m having so much fun.”
“Like, I’m just here because it’s fun,” Gwen added. “Coaching and actually getting to know your team after the Blinds is my favorite thing because it feels like the dream is there.”
However, she admitted that it’s a little unnerving to look at Blake’s chair and watch instead The voice‘s newest coach: the Queen of Country herself.
On how Reba has handled her first season so far, Gwen laughed as she reflected on the Blind Auditions.
“She did great. She didn’t have to do anything,” she recalled. “They’d say, ‘I think you’re great. I’d love to have you on my team,’ and they’d say, ‘I’ll pick you!'”
The voice airs Mondays at 8 PM PT and Tuesdays at 9 PM PT on NBC.
