Beth Spangler & Mia Pfirrman Battle on The Voice Leads To Final Steal! (VIDEO)
Beth Spangler and Mia Pfirrman went head-to-head during the second and final week of battles on “The Voice” on Tuesday. As Gossip Cop has reported, now that each coach has his or her team of contestants following the blind auditions, the mentors have to pair up their own singers to face each other.
To help whittle down the teams before the competition goes live, the coach can only pick one singer as the battle victor. The other contestant is instantly eliminated… unless another coach goes for the steal. And that’s exactly what happened in the final minutes of Tuesday’s show during the very last battle of season 7!
But first, coach Adam Levine gave Spangler and Pfirrmann some guidance for their big duet. They were further advised by none other than the legendary Stevie Nicks. Keeping things in “The Voice” family, the women were tasked with performing “I Turn To You,” the epic ballad by Christina Aguilera, who is set to return to the panel next season.
After performing, and hitting some seriously high notes, Blake Shelton commented, “That was definitely a couple of divas up there, giving it all they had.” Pharrell actually commended competitor Levine on the pairing, and said he sees a lot of potential in both Spangler and Pfirrmann. Interestingly, Gwen Stefani said the song was more suited for Pfirrmann, and found herself surprised by Spangler holding her own.
But Levine had to make the ultimate decision himself, and he amusingly exclaimed, “Oh son of a gun!” He pointed out that both received four-chair turn-arounds during their auditions, and said his decision now was almost like a coin flip for him. In the end, he chose to keep Pfirrmann on his team.
And then came the major twist! As Spangler was saying goodbye to the coaches, she hugged Stefani… and Stefani pushed her button for the steal! Needless to say, the contestant was shocked, happily so, and the studio audience went wild.
Next week, the Knockout Round begins with special guest Taylor Swift!
