For the first time ever on The Voice, the teams faced off in a new aspect of the competition with the introduction of the live Cross Battle rounds, in which the four coaches – Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and John Legend – had to pick one member of their team to face off against another team’s member without knowing who the coach they challenge will pick.

One of the best Cross Battles of the night was when Kelly picked 16-year-old Presley Tennant to face off against a member of John’s team and John selected his own 16-year-old team member Kayslin Victoria.

Presley performed “Love on the Brain,” while Kayslin’s song choice for the Cross Battle was “Stay.”

“What just happened? I have always known you were a phenomenal singer,” Kelly told Presley. “That was by far the best I’ve ever heard you. You do better in front of a live audience. I love you. You are so talented. I am blessed to have you on my team. I think you can win this show. You are insane.”

Then John told Kayslin, “I am so proud of you. You sounded so great. Your stage energy, your vibe, you were so confident up there. I was so proud of you. You did a fantastic job.”

Then the neutral coaches weighed in.

Blake said, “We say this all the time but you two are so young, and I can already hear the difference since the last time you performed. You guys have already turned the dial.”

And Adam commented, “You guys were great. Presley, I was blown away. That was a really tough vocal to pull off. I think it was your best performance. Kayslin, you’ve been great all along and that was more of the same from you, which is not a bad thing. I think maybe Presley, but Kayslin… I don’t have to decide, so I am not going to say anything.”

Watch the videos of their performances and decide for yourself.

The Voice returns tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC when the winners of Monday night’s Cross Battles will be announced.
