During the "Battle Rounds," coaches pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal face-off, coaches must then choose between their two artists to determine who will continue on in the competition.
At the end of the "Battle Rounds," each coach will have six members remaining on their respective teams as they head into the live stage shows in April.
