THE BATTLES, PART 5/ THE KNOCKOUTS PREMIERE (TV-PG)
The “Battle Rounds” conclude and the “Knockout Rounds” begin with coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s strongest team members remaining from the “Battles.” The artists will be paired against a teammate once more, but this time they will each select their own song to perform individually, while their direct competitor watches and waits. Ten-time Grammy Award winner and record-breaking global pop icon Taylor Swift, will serve as a Mega Mentor and be on hand to work with all of the coaches and their teams as they prepare the artists for this challenge. The coaches alone will choose the winner from their team to move on to the Live Playoff show. Each coach will have one steal in the “Knockouts.” Carson Daly ("TODAY Show") hosts.
