When The Voice returned on Monday night this week for the final battle rounds, Team Cee Lo singers Avery Wilson and Chevonne squared off on “Titanium” by David Guetta featuring Sia.

It was an interesting battle for coach Cee Lo Green on Monday night’s battle round on The Voice as 16-year old Avery Wilson went head-to-head against former Lady Gaga back-up singer, Chevonne.

Although Avery struggled with the song in rehearsals, Wilson raised his game on stage to eventually beat Chevonne, who was quickly stolen by Christina Aguilera for Team Xtina.

Interestingly, Cee Lo found Avery to be so good at such a young age that he praised the Wilson as a prodigy.

So, how did Avery find his groove with the song by the time he hit The Voice stage for battle?

“It was pretty intense,” Avery told The Deadbolt this week after his battle with Chevonne. “When we did our first practice, I didn’t really know the song at all and it was new to me. I hadn’t really heard of “Titanium”, so I had to learn it and pretty much sit with the song.”

For Avery, however, going up against such a seasoned singer in Chevonne was intimidating at first. Despite his early discomfort with the song, it was Chevonne who made a huge impact in rehearsals.

“I practiced a lot with Chevonne,” Avery added to The Deadbolt, “and she helped me get it together and then take it into my own hands, sculpt it, and make it “Avery-ized.” It was pretty hard but I felt that I came out on top.”

After singing David Guetta’s “Without You” in what turned out to be a stunning and stellar blind audition, Avery is a strong contender to go far in the competition.

How do you like Avery’s chances this season on The Voice?
