It was night two of The Battles: Round Two on Tuesday on "The Voice." Artists from Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher's teams were represented in four battles. Adam Levine's team did not participate in the one-hour episode.

Once again, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin served as a guest adviser during rehearsals.

Here's what happened:

Team Blake's Biff Gore and Sisaundra Lewis kicked things off with a rendition of James Brown's "It's a Man's Man's Man's World." Usher favored Biff, but only because he was Biff's mentor before Blake stole him during the previous round. Adam joked he was 80-percent sure that Sisaundra is "not from Earth," given her talent. Blake named Sisaundra the winner, saying he can't miss out on the opportunity to work with such a brilliant vocalist. None of the other coaches stole Biff.

Shakira paired Ddendyl with Deja Hall. They joined forces on A Great Big World's "Say Something," a version of which features usual Voice coach Christina Aguilera. Adam said Deja has a "richness" to her voice. Blake added there was an innocence to her performance. Shakira said that while Ddendyl is artistic, she felt the artist who has made the most progress and has made the most "tangible choices" is Deja. Deja advanced to the playoffs, while Ddendyl was eliminated.

In a battle that was quickly recapped, Team Shakira artists Emily B. and Kristen Merlin sang "I Can Love You Better," by the Dixie Chicks. Shakira picked Kristen. Emily said goodbye to the show.

The final battle featured Team Usher's Stevie Joe and Morgan Wallen. They chose to perform One Direction's "Story of My Life." Adam said it's a song that was recorded by boys -- referring to the members of 1D -- but was performed by men on The Voice stage. Blake gave the edge to Stevie Joe due to his technique. Usher said he discovered Morgan's falsetto with this performance. He also noted that Stevie Joe has a "soulful essence."

Stevie Joe was declared the winner, while Morgan was stolen by Adam.

NBC will air the final battles next Monday night at 8 p.m. Eastern time. The following night, the top 20 will compete in the playoffs.
