Blake Shelton sent Erin Willett and Gwen Sebastian into the battle round on tonight's episode of 'The Voice.' They were paired up to sing Pat Benatar's 'We Belong.' Willett is big and bold, full of power, while Sebastian is a country singer who can hit the highs and lows. To call this battle a "toughie" for Shelton would be an understatement.
Gwen Sebastian of North Dakota's initial appearance on 'The Voice' was misleading. With her short and spikey two-tone hair, she looks like she'd be belting Pat Benatar in a dimly lit dive bar. The image is further driven home by her black-clad drummer boyfriend, whom she affectionately calls "Lala," and with whom she put off a wedding and children to pursue music.
That image is shattered as soon as you hear her sing.
