NBC’s ‘The Voice’ review: Darius Scott, Morgan Frazier, Korin Bukowski take on the Knockouts

VoiceReady to kick off some more Knockout Rounds on “The Voice“? Tuesday night’s new episode marked the next batch of performances leading up to the arrival of the live playoffs next month. Yep, the show’s tradition of taking forever to get to the live shows continued!

There were only a small handful of Knockout Rounds featured here, but hey, we’re happy that we at least get six performances versus just three in the Battle Rounds.

Korin Bukowski defeats Summer Schappell – We really cannot say that this was the most stunning defeat in the world. Korin has had the edit of someone who would make it to the live shows, and Gwen Stefani seemed very impressed with what she did with “All I Want.” This was a very solid vocal! Summer seemed to struggle with the right performance style, and a few pitch issues here and there.

Keith Semple defeats Dustin Christensen – Probably the Knockout Round performance that we feel the most “meh” over right now. Neither really blew us away, but we would say as a whole that Dustin delivered something that was a little more unique. It was almost country-rock more so than clinging to any one genre, but he may have been hindered slightly by Adam Levine having so much more history working with Keith (at least in the form of a Battle).

Darius Scott defeats Morgan Frazier – We love Darius’ voice. We loved Morgan’s song choice. This is one of those cases where we are so happy both advanced that we really don’t care that this was a hardly-exciting way to end the Knockout Rounds. Darius won as predicted, and Morgan is now back on Team Blake. We know he loves to steal back his old artists!
