Shi’Ann Jones and Stephan Marcellus sparked a steal on “The Voice” after they sang a Beatles song for their Battle on Monday’s show. Watch the video below!

During the Battles, which is the second round of the NBC music competition, the aspiring stars have to sing duets. Each contestant is paired up with another person from their team and while they need to jointly give a flawless performance, they do so while knowing that only one of them will be declared the “winner” and actually get to stay on the team. In this instance, Jones and Marcellus’ coach Jennifer Hudson explained that she picked them to face off against each other because they’re both “soulful singers,” and she wanted to see which would “deliver a strong vocal with a great stage presence.”

For their duet, they had to sing The Beatles’ “Oh! Darling.” In rehearsals with Hudson and her special guest advisor, Kelly Rowland, 15-year-old Shi’Ann came off as, well, shy, while Marcellus was ready to make up for forgetting the lyrics during his Blind Audition. Once they started singing, it was clear both deserved to be there. Hudson encouraged them both, “You sell that moment from start to finish.”

And sell they did come show time. “Man, that was really, really close to a tie,” Adam Levine said afterward, but he gave his vote to Marcellus. Miley Cyrus, who gave a stand ovation, predicted Marcellus could do “so much” with his career and wanted to see him on the show “a little bit longer.” Meanwhile, Blake Shelton declared, “Shi’Anna could win this show.” Hudson admitted, “This one is definitely crushing my heart.”

So, who did Hudson finally declare as the victor? The win went to Jones. But then a win went to Marcellus, too. Though Cyrus previously celebrated being the first coach in the show’s history to have an all-female team after the Blind Auditions, she now decided to add some testosterone into the mix by stealing Marcellus. By doing so, she saved him from elimination. Check out the video below!
