It’s a pretty busy night, but I have to be honest — I’m geeking out the most over DR. HORRIBLE’s SING-ALONG BLOG’s television debut!

“The Battles Premiere, Part 2”
The “battle rounds” continue and the coaches enlist the help of the music industry’s top recording artists to offer their knowledge and skill as advisers.

In this phase the coaches pit two of their own team members against each other in a dueling duet. After the vocal face-off, each coach must choose which artist from their team is the strongest and in a new twist, also has the option of stealing losing artists from an opposing coach. Each coach has two steals during the battle rounds where their artists will proceed to the new knockout rounds.
