When The Voice battle rounds began this week, powerhouse singers Trevin Hunte and Amanda Brown went head-to-head on Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love”.
For the first night of battle round competition on The Voice this past Monday, coach Cee Lo Green chose vocal heavyweights Trevin Hunte and Amanda Brown as his main event of the evening. Although Cee Lo underestimated the vocal ability of Amanda during her first audition, Brown proved that she was a true contender on Monday by holding her own against favorite Trevin Hunte.
After a near flawless performance of “Vision of Love”, Cee Lo named Trevin the winner and the one to advance for his team. However, Amanda’s performance had all of The Voice judges on their feet in the hopes of a steal. In the end, Amanda chose to go with Adam Levine as her new mentor.
In what ways did Trevin approach the battle rounds differently to deal with his confidence?
“At first I was kind of nervous,” Trevin admitted to The Deadbolt after this week’s battle, “because I really didn’t know the song very much. I don’t know. I came into the battle round trying to be positive because Amanda is very amazing. I stayed positive and I kept to myself and just practiced every day.”
As for Amanda on The Voice, she now has to adjust to a new team and coach in Maroon 5′s Adam Levine.
Now that the first battle is over and behind her, how did Amanda feel about going up against such a powerful singer in Trevin Hunte?
“For me,” Amanda confessed, “it was a pleasure and an honor. I always enjoy working with talented people, and Trevin is very talented. I just wanted to remain as positive as possible so that we could give this awesome, amazing performance, which I felt that we did give. So I’m very proud.”
