Season 14 of The Voice is moving into the Battle Rounds this week, and one showdown, in particular, has coach Kelly Clarkson dancing out of her chair. In a sneak peek video from Monday's new show, contestants Brynn Cartelli and Dylan Hartigan deliver a powerhouse duet of Taylor Swift's "...Ready For It?"

The performance has a unique country feel to it, as Cartelli and Hartigan go back and forth on the song's rap verses, and absolutely slay the vocals, with the stage presence to match. Hartigan in particular shows off plenty of personality, even addressing coach Clarkson directly at one point: "Hey, KC, are you ready for it?"


Clarkson has plenty of fun watching her team members perform, as she cheers them on and stands up to dance along throughout the performance. "I love Kelly's reaction!!! So ADORABLE!!" wrote one YouTube commenter. The coach has a difficult decision in front of her, as she's tasked with choosing one performer to move on. 

Cartelli, who is only 14 years old, auditioned for the show with a performance of "Beneath Your Beautiful" by Labrinth and Emeli Sandé. Hartigan, a 21-year-old former actor, got Clarkson's attention with a cover of Loggins and Messina's "Danny's Song." We can't wait to see who the coach chooses to remain on her team.
