Usually the results of the battles are leaked by now. It's awfully quiet

Might be a good idea to have a very clearly marked "BATTLE ROUNDS SPOILER" headlined thread for this.

So these are the final 3s going into the Lives? Interesting in regard to the steals and proves my theory regarding shortage of talent this season.

Apparently the second one I stated KILLED IT and she had no choice but to pick the person because she would have been absurd not to. I'm looking forward to see how that all plays out on TV and whether or not the positions were well deserved.

I'm still confused/curious to how the Knockout on the BBC's version will work out seeing as they'll be 7 artists after the battles?..I don't see where the tension will be created from.

Danny looks (on paper) to have a weaker list of artists going into the lives than in season 1...if there is to be a third season, I think they need to look at someone more well known.

She told me, but I can't really remember as it was very confusing.

Being famous doesn't give you a better ability to judge others. Mariah Carey is showing that on Idol.

I should have mentioned and with personality..the point I'm making is that during the blinds most 4 or 3 and even 2 turns involving Danny, he loses. One big reason is that artists are more familiar with the other 3 coaches.

I still don't understand why the BBC thought the US format for the Knockout rounds wouldn't work in the UK..I mean they're still singing in a boxing ring and as far as I'm aware boxing involves two sportsmen/women.

I don't agree. I think he has the winner in his group and I think he proved to be a good coach last year. He made one or two mistakes but so did Will with some questionable song choices for his finalists. Although Tom had the winner last year I think Danny will prove to have the most successful artist of last year's acts and that IMO is more important than winning but we shall see.

You may be confusing the Battle rounds with the Knockouts. Understandably given the boxing ring thing.

The Battle rounds (in the boxing ring) are between all the people on one team. Where the coach pits one team member against a fellow team member. Then the coach chooses who they will keep between the two.

The difference this year is any person who is eliminated (at this stage) can be snatched up by another coach.

The following round (The Knockouts) is where the 7 remaining team members have to sing their Killer Song to make sure they are one of the 3 chosen by their coach to go through to the live rounds.

Imo, the Battle round and the Knockout round are pretty similar since it's two members of the same team pitted against eachother. So pretty much

Battle Round - Two contestants of the same team pitted against eachother singing one song- like a duet. Whoever loses may be stole by another coach

Knockout round - Two contestants of the same team pitted against eachother singing a song of their own choice () and only one will go forward to the live shows

What did you mean by 7 artists? I assumed there would be 8 contestants advancing to the knockout rounds (6 winners & two steals) to keep the team even? Maybe I'm wrong, i'm just basing it on how the US version is

The knock outs are between ALL remaining team members (the 6 they are left with after the battle round plus their 1 steal).

That is why it is s confusing. The battle rounds narrow it down to six, but the coaches also get just one steal making it seven per team. The format for the nock outs can't make any logical sense from the way I see it with an odd number of people. From that seven, three go to the lives.

Taken directly from the BBC Voice site

The Knockouts

As the series hits the Knockouts, the Coaches must pick their top three finalists from their seven. It’s at this stage that the artists themselves take control. Each artist must select a “Killer Song” to perform. They will all perform their Killer Songs, and the Coaches will have to decide which three artists will go through to the Live Shows.

So I presume (each coach) will wait until all 7 perform before they make their decision. I guess it can work when their are no commercials!
