The battle rounds are now over on "The Voice."

Tuesday marked the end of this season's battles. Usher began the episode with one last steal, and by the time the episode was over, he had used it.

Read on to find out what happened:

Shakira pitted Brandon Raush (one of the show's youngest competitors, at 19) against Shawna P. (the oldest, at 45) to sing Janis Joplin's "Piece of My Heart." The coach called it a battle of eagerness versus experience, and this time the experience won out -- Shakira picked Shawna.

The night also featured a battle between Latin singers Cathia and Mary Miranda, singing Shakira's own "Antes De Las Seis." The women earned praise from all four judges, and Shakira praised them for making her song their own. She chooses to keep Mary.

But, it wasn't over for Cathia just yet -- Usher had one steal left, and he used it to save her.

"You really sold me at the end of your performance," he said.

From Team Adam, Duncan Kamakana sang with Sarah Simmons on Lady Antebellum's "Wanted You More." Blake Shelton tells Simmons she's one of his favorite singers of all time, and Adam Levine agrees, keeping the music student for his team.

In the night's other battles, Usher chose Michelle Chamuel over Chelsea M., Levine picked Amy Whitcomb over Agina Alvarez and Shelton chose Justin Rivers over The Morgan Twins.

Next week, "The Voice" will begin its knockout rounds, which feature two members of a team singing different songs in front of each other and one being eliminated.
