It was the third night of the Battle Rounds on The Voice Monday, and one battle had everyone seeing icons. Blake Shelton's team members, Carson Peters and Clint Sherman, battled it out to Vince Gill's "Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away," and Kelly Clarkson thought Carson should be singing in Road House. Kelly said, "Carson, I was like, 'Oh, my God.' Seventeen years old looking like a country Patrick Swayze. I'm like, 'What?'"

The former American Idol winner wasn't the only one impressed with Carson. Blake's team advisor, Dierks Bentley, saw another legend in Carson. "Carson could be a big superstar. His voice has got the bluegrass stuff and the country stuff. But it has almost like an Elvis kind of harder-edge tone happening," Dierks said.

In the end, Blake chose Carson as the winner of the battle, and is excited to see what the 17-year-old has in store. "I just feel like Carson had the edge. He's just got a few different gears he can go to as a vocalist. Carson's only 17 years old, and as a coach, that's very exciting. Also, we haven't yet heard him play fiddle. I can't wait for that."
