Now, this is a performance!
The blind auditions of 'The Voice' are officially over and the battle rounds have begun.
Which meant two of Team Kelly's strongest, soulful singers went up against each other - and it was unlike any other battle we have seen before!
Belting out a jaw-dropping rendition of Solomon Burke's "Cry To Me," SandyRedd and Cody Ray Raymond set the stage on fire.
The two singers are absolute powerhouses, with their raspy and sultry voices you can't help but be drawn into their performance.
"Individually you all are superheroes, but you're Avengers together," country singer Blake Shelton said right after the performance.

Before announcing her controversial decision, Kelly said: "This is stressful! ... Cody Ray, it's literally like Chris Stapleton. It's so smooth. It's gorgeous. SandyRedd, you're literally one of the best singers I've ever heard in my life. I mean, in the blinds I was hiding behind the chair for a solid reason. Your voice is like, what? It's insane what you do.”
In the end, Kelly chooses Cody Ray.
But SandyRedd’s journey was far from over.
All three of the other coaches pushed their "steal" buttons to save the singer from elimination.
