An opera singer killed a small town of Michigan.the sound Performance when it matters most during the second round known as the Battle Round. Ada’s Ryan Gallagher performed with and against Marisa Corvo of Staten Island as the winner advances to the next round.
The two performed strongly for Celine Dion’s song “Give Up”, which made their coach, Kelly Clarkson’s decision to pick a winner extremely difficult. The coaches praised Gallagher for his voice, but noticed how Corfu looked like he was actually in control of the song.

Blake Shelton said after the show, “Ryan, we know you have a big voice, but Marisa takes over the room and ruins the place.” “Ryan, I just think at this point she was built to shine Marisa. She had to give birth and she did,” John Legend said.
“You guys are almost the opposite of the way you attacked the song. I wanted to watch Ryan the whole time because you were comfortable all the time singing these cool notes. It’s like you don’t even try. Gwen Stefani said.”
Clarkson said, “The cool thing is, I’ve never heard a man sing this song about your depth and control. You both are very talented. This is a very difficult decision.”
Clarkson ended up choosing Corfu as the winner. “They are both great singer. I couldn’t deny how Marisa did it.” However, Gallagher’s time on the show was not over. Clarkson used one of them and just kept for him. “I don’t want him to come home. I think he’s very talented and very mobile. It’s a voice that moves us.”
Gallagher will now be appearing on the knockout tour that begins tomorrow evening at 8 pm
