Joselyn Rivera + Sylvia Yacoub Have a Diva-Off to ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ on ‘The Voice’

The two youngsters both have powerhouse vocals, fitting for anyone who chose Aguilera as a coach. Their coach chose Beyonce‘s ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ — troubling for the average Joe Schmo trying to tackle the song in the comfort of their cars, but Rivera and Yacoub were excited to take on the task of singing a Beyonce song, and started their rehearsal with much ferocity.
While it seemed that Yacoub would be the natural winner of the battle, she sometimes came off too powerful and oversang; Rivera on the other hand, had a sweet and soft demeanor to her, which Aguilera appreciated.
It was clear from the previews that one of the girls would be stolen, so it kind of made the excitement of seeing which girl would make it through to the knockout rounds. Then again, both are deserving of a coach, so it’s truly a win-win.
