Orlando Dixon, Ryan Innes, Jon Peter Lewis Shine in Latest “The Voice” Battle Rounds

By  | 

Various elements of “The Voice” have come together to make it television’s number one music competition series, and one irrefutable source of entertainment is the Battle Round.

A series of vocal duels that pit two members of each team against each other, with only one advancing to the next round, the battles are good not only for the drama of who will advance but for the spirited musical performances they produce.

Monday’s episode featured well-received takes on “You and I,” “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Ain’t No Sunshine.” The latter, a competition between Ryan Innes and Orlando Dixon, made for one of the more impassioned performances thus far on the show’s fourth season.

Oft-mocked “American Idol” season three contestant Jon Peter Lewis, meanwhile, continued his path to redemption as part of folk rock duo Midas Whale. His group joined Patrick Dodd in a crowd-pleasing version of “Burning Love.”

    Last night’s episode was
    fantastic, and I was happy with the results overall. I work at DISH with a few
    friends who were sad to see Patrick Dodd go, but Midas Whale is so incredibly
    unique. I was just getting on the bus to go home when the episode started last
    night, so I watched the first half on my phone with my DISH Anywhere app. It
    lets me watch my live or recorded TV from home anywhere I go, so I don’t fall
    behind with my lineup and bus rides are much more enjoyable.
