The nerve-wracking tag team fights of “The Voice of Germany” entered the second round on Friday night. And this round was definitely not for the faint of heart: in the end, one coach even had to leave the night without any talent.
Team fights take place over a total of three rounds. In each round there are four seats available for the talent to sit. After the coaches have filled the four hot seats in the first round, the attack begins. Each team can challenge one of these occupied hot seats. In the end, a neutral audience decides who gets to the chair. Only those who at the end of the evening are still in trouble will advance to the next semi-finals. What sounds like an emotion drives not only the coaches, but also the spectators, crazy.

Bill and Tom Kaulitz rely on proven tactics
“Team Toll”, that is, Bill and Tom Kaulitz, also used a similar strategy as above in the second round of team fights: They occupied the first bench with one of their strongest talents to rule out an attack. and ensure that this chair remains occupied by the same talent throughout the evening. For this they sent Sebastian Zieroff to the race, a talent with a very unique voice. With his performance he made the audience tremble from the first second; However, the twins’ strategy was questioned several times that night.
Ronan Keating sat Emely Myles next to Sebastian. The 33-year-old took the stage in a pink suit and the matching song “Respect.” The energy that this song required kept her on stage until the last moment. Not even Coach Shirin could contain herself: “I couldn’t, she moved, I had to move!” Meanwhile, Ronan was filled with pride: “You rampant pig!”

Giovanni sent his talented Laura Schopf to the third chair. He also affectionately calls her “Miss Emotions.” After living up to her nickname with her smooth performance of “Lost Without You,” she took the third hot spot of the night. To end the still harmless first round of team fights, Shirin David placed her youngest talent in one of the hot seats: Fritz Speck, with his extraordinary vocal color, was to melt the hearts of the audience and raise the inhibition threshold. for a challenge. . She charmed the entire studio with her shyness and talent.
Talent displaces Giovanni Zarrella’s candidate
Then the real fights began: And for their first fight, “Team Toll” sent their talent Naomi on the run – to a Tokio Hotel song. The 18-year-old was allowed to sing “Spring Nicht” and she challenged her competitor Laura Schopf from Team Giovanni with this special song selection.
At the end of her performance, Naomi was overcome with emotion and burst into tears before being allowed to sit in Laura’s seat after the public vote. But they took it fairly fairly: “I’m happy to make room for someone like Naomi,” Laura said after the decision. This quick turnaround showed how drastic and tough teamfights are and how quickly even the best talents can be eliminated from this competition.
“The Voice” coaches have to attack
From the beginning of the team fights it was clear: “Team Toll” had it all that night, but it was not an easy match. The twins were challenged round after round. This was due not only to their strong team, but also because they temporarily filled two of the four positions, leaving a talentless coach nervous.
The other teams definitely had to attack, and that’s what they did. The same goes for Ronan Keating: with his talented Alex Seeger, the coach challenges Sebastian from “Team Toll”, but in vain. Despite his soulful voice, Alex failed to lift Sebastian from his chair. But for Ronan there is no problem, since even after making the decision he trusted in his talent: “This is the birth of a star.”
“I feel like he was born to be on stage,” Giovanni began introducing his next talent. “Is this audience manipulation?” Bill wanted to know. Zarrella dedicated this performance to his youngest talent, Elias Biechele, who competed against Team Shirin’s Fritz. With immeasurable vulnerability in her voice, the girl from Giovanni’s team sang “Say Something” and amazed even Ronan Keating: “I think this can be won,” he admitted after the performance.
Shirin David suddenly has no talent
After all the praise for Elias, Shirin also tried to defend his questioned talent: “When I turn on the radio, I realize that it’s fucking Fritz Speck, and that’s very strange,” he argued. All this was unsuccessful because the public chose Elías. So Shirin was left in the chairs without any talent., until he sent Richard to the stage and advised him to attack Sebastian from “Team Toll”. The singer was challenged for the second time, testing the Kaulitz twins’ strategy.

Shirin found clear words after Richard’s performance: “I think his ass needs to be on the bench real quick.” And indeed: Richard managed to oust Sebastian from his throne. “We’re being attacked incessantly today,” Bill complained and quickly retaliated. The twins sent Marc Altergott on stage and had him compete against Richard, who wasn’t even allowed to warm up the hot seat. And suddenly a change occurs, which angers Shirin: “Today I am no longer accessible, I am angry,” she complains, looking ahead. “Well, I’m in a good mood,” Bill continued teasingly.
“The Voice”: Giovanni Zarrella is left empty-handed
But not even Marc was allowed to sit quietly in the hot seat; apparently that same chair was very popular that night. Ronan faced his talent Anne Mosters with the song “Love In The Dark” by Adele. Her performance provoked the astonishment of all the coaches, but the surprise effect did not reach the audience, because they gave Marc the opportunity to continue breathing deeply in a hot seat. Ronan was dissatisfied with this decision: “I’m heartbroken, I can’t believe it,” he announced in disbelief. But Giovanni quickly found the right words, as is often the case: “We will continue to be at Anne’s house and see concerts.”
Then Giovanni brought out his joker and had the three tenors line up. And again “Team Toll” was attacked, this time Naomi. “If Naomi leaves now, she will break my heart,” Bill threatened shortly before the performance. But her heart remained intact because Naomi managed to prevail over the three powerful male voices. Shirin had no talent in the chairs at the moment, so she had to make her next decision tactically. She chose the powerhouse Kim Schutzius, who managed to take down Elias’ strong voice with her performance of Adele’s “Easy On Me.”

So Giovanni failed to take any talent to the semi-finals that night.. His bitter conclusion: “Today was a brutal day. We entered the race with three talents and none of them made it to the semifinals.” Bill and Tom Kaulitz, on the other hand, knew how to defy all attacks and left the evening with two talents (Marc and Naomi). Ronan (Emely) and Shirin (Kim) advanced with one talent each. There is still one more round of team fights before the semi-finals.
