In a thrilling episode of "The Voice" that aired on Monday night, tensions ran high as contestants gave it their all during the final round of Battles. The standout performance of the night came from singers Huntley and Brailey Lenderman of Team Niall, who delivered a soaring rendition of "Hold My Hand" by Hootie & the Blowfish.
