Every season it seems that Blake Shelton finds a way to get one up on his fellow judges over on NBC’s The Voice. Now, the country singer is the only coach with a steal and is planning on bringing on all of the drama possible when he uses it.

Shelton was kind enough to post a sneak peek over on his Instagram page. It shows the four coaches discussing the upcoming decisions. Ariana Grande is getting to experience these things for the first time and is taking it all in from the looks of it. She might not have known what she was getting into.

“Well well… will y’all look at who’s the only coach with a steal. Tonight will be fun!!!!! And yes.. there will be drama #TheVoice #VoiceBattles,” the post read. It was a short video featuring Blake Shelton, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend.

Legend got things going by asking if anyone had a steal left in the competition. Shelton was eager and happy to reveal he did have a steal. That puts him in a great position to make a big move in tonight’s episode. He could be taking one of the eliminated contestants from his fellow coaches’ teams. So, get ready to see someone given a second chance.

Clarkson tries to explain to Grande what Blake does with his steals. He keeps it to the last moment and then usees it. It keeps everyone including contestants on their toes and makes for good television. John Legend said it was a “Bobby Knight approach.”

Battle Rounds End Tonight on ‘The Voice’

Everything began with the blind performance rounds. Then the Battle Rounds began. This is where contestants are going up against each other hoping to make it to the next round. The knockouts are dramatic and usually bring out wonderful performances. There is no telling what to expect in these rounds.

While Blake Shelton is holding onto his steal so far in this season of The Voice things won’t last long for that steal. However, last night Manny Keith and Wendy Moten went up against each other. Manny Keith became available to steal. This season Ariana Grande has had her eyes on Keith.

She followed through on her feelings. She used her steal to bring Keith to her team. The contestant is a huge fan of the pop star and now will get to work with Grande.

“I think he can absolutely shine in his own right if given the chance to do so,” The Voice coach said.

Now, another night is set up to bring the drama. With it being the last night of the knockout rounds, Shelton has saved his steal for the last moment. It is going to be a long-awaited decision. Who is going to be saved by the country singer?
