Ryan Quinn and Owen Danoff Battle In Shocking Knockout on The Voice 2016 (VIDEO)
Owen is up first with his rendition of “She’s Always a Woman” by Billy Joel, and I absolutely ADORE this. He’s not just singing the song, he’s communicating the story simply through his facial expressions and body language. It’s not the most perfect vocal in the world, but it’s got an entire universe of feeling within its borders. I just loved this so much, you guys. Ryan is up next with “Drops of Jupiter” by Train. Strangely, while Ryan’s vocal is note perfect, it doesn’t have anywhere near the depth of feeling Owen’s performance had. Really, this is a contest between a rough diamond and a more polished vocalist. It’s interesting because I’m not sure there’s a wrong answer here. Both guys are just so immensely talented. Watch both knockout videos below:
Result: After an agonizingly long deliberation, Adam makes his pick and awards the battle to OWEN DANOFF! It’s a stunner, but it’s clearly not the end for his opponent, as Christina Aguilera STEALS Ryan Quinn!
