Carson Daly asked the coaches how is it going into the Battles. Blake answered that he hates it. He said “I beg these people to be on my team. Then I kick half of them off” during the Battle round. He said this is why he drinks on the show. Blake joked to Jennifer and Kelly on which one of them will cry first. Daly said he’s never seen JHud cry.
