GYTH RIGDON vs. ROD STOKES
John Legend said there’s something about Gyth and he’s a great performer. Gyth is comfortable on stage.
STEAL: Adam stole Rod. He liked Rod’s Blind Audition and he did great during the Battles. Adam implied that he thought the Battles song was the wrong song for Rod.
RIZZI MYERS vs. PRESLEY TENNANT
Rizzi is 25-years-old from Kansas City, and Presley is 16-years-old. John Legend said “outstanding performance.” He went with Presley. Adam went with Rizzi because “she’s ready right now.” Kelly could not decide. She agreed with Blake in that she went with the one that could be thrown anything during the Live Shows.
That was Presley who is 16-years-old.

CELIA BABINI vs. KARLY MORENO
Celia was wearing a long glittery pink robe-like coat. Blake said the two singers couldn’t be more different. Blake was the first coach to mention that Ceila’s style really reminded him of Florence and the Machine. Kelly also agreed and along with Blake, they both told her that she should come into her own. Blake intially reacted to her as “holy crappiness.”
