The Battle Rounds on 'The Voice' came to a surprising close this week, but the NBC hype machine maybe set our expectations a little high. Usually when we see people's jaws dropping in promos, we're anticipating a twist in the competition, but this was nothing like that.
The final pairing was Emily Valentine and Curtis Grimes from Team Cee Lo Green. He chose Lady Antebellum's mega-hit 'Need You Now,' which was a natural fit for country boy Grimes. Valentine had to reach a little out of her rock comfort zone to find the song, but we thought she juggled it admirably.
What was more evident was her feelings for Grimes. He'd already given up one dream -- baseball -- for a girl, so he said he wouldn't do it again. But at the end of their performance, he took off his cowboy hat and planted a kiss on her that told another story.
