NBC's The Voice had a lot of ups and downs during the last of the battle rounds. It was the last show before the broadcast goes live, and both the contestants and coaches brought their a-game. Unfortunately for the country- crooner, James Dupree of Team Adam, it just wasn't enough to advance in the competition. 

Dupree was paired with the other country singer on Team Adam, Shelby Brown. Brown's cover of Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take The Wheel" blew the judges away and left Dupree fighting for the only country spot on Team Adam.

It was a safe choice to pick Blake Shelton's hit "Sure Be Cool If You Did", but it might not have been the right pick. Shelton had already used his steal, so hope of a save from Team Blake wasn't in the cards. But regardless, Shelton gave his advice on the song choice. 

Dupree has a solid country sound, but lacked in stage presence compared to Brown. Shelton also referred to his song choice as "mellow for the battle rounds", and was unimpressed with the overall performance. As a result, Dupree was eliminated from the competition, and Brown will advance to the next round. 

Watch Dupree's performance of "Sure Be Cool If You Did" below, and let us know what you think! 

LYRICS BELOW 

I was gonna keep it real like chill like only have a drink or two
But it turned into a party when I started talking to you
Now you're standing in the neon looking like a high I wanna be on
Baby it's your call, no pressure at all

You don't have to throw back your pretty pink lemonade shooter
And lean a little closer
You don't have to keep on smiling that smile that's driving me wild
And when the night is almost over
Meet me in the middle of a moonlit Chevy bench seat
And do a little bit of country song, hanging on
You don't have to keep me falling like this
But it'd sure be cool if you did

You can't shoot me down cause you've already knocked me dead
Got me falling apart with my heart talking out of my head
Let your mind take a little back road just as far as you wanna go
Baby, I'll do, whatever you wanna do, wanna do

You don't have to throw back your pretty pink lemonade shooter
And lean a little closer
You don't have to keep on smiling that smile that's driving me wild
And when the night is almost over
Meet me in the middle of a moonlit Chevy bench seat
And do a little bit of country song, hanging on
You don't have to keep me falling like this
But it'd sure be cool if you did

Have a night that you'll never forget
And now you're standing in the neon looking like a high I wanna be on

You don't have to throw back your pretty pink lemonade shooter
And lean a little closer
You don't have to keep on smiling that smile that's driving me wild
And when the night is almost over
Meet me in the middle of a moonlit Chevy bench seat
And do a little bit of country song, hanging on
You don't have to keep me falling like this
But it'd sure be cool if you did
Yeah, it'd sure be cool if you did
