The one battle on everyone's lips was Armand Joubert and Samantha Leonard from #TeamKaren.

The pair performed a show stopping duel of The Darkness’s, I Believe In A Thing Called Love.

As both Armand and Samantha displayed what Karen called “an insane vocal range”, she wanted to test their entertainment value. 

Initially, Samantha lacked some confidence when co-coach Emo Adams joined Karen to prepare them for their Battle, but a pep talk did the trick. 

Samantha’s boosted confidence coupled with Armand’s natural ability made for one of the most epic Battles of the night. “That was war! It was absolutely incredible, like something out of a movie… POWER!” Lira exclaimed.  

None of the coaches could give Karen advice on what to do, but due to the immense progress that she demonstrated, Karen chose Samantha as her winner, much to Samantha’s utter shock.  Luckily, Bobby felt that a talent like Armand’s couldn’t leave the show and opted to steal him for his team.
