Louisiana and Arkansas will face-off in a head-to-head as Team XTina featuring Shreveport’s own, Dez Duron, will take on Team CeeLo featuring Little Rock, Arkansas’s Cody Belew, next week on NBC’s ‘The Voice’.

As the Knockouts round came to a close Thursday night, the final selections for Team Adam and Team CeeLo made for tough decisions for both judges. The top 20 contestants are now preparing for the most brutal of battles next week in the Live Playoffs beginning on Monday night at 8/7c on NBC.

Local Native and Favorite, Dez Duron, who secured his spot on Wednesday night’s elimination knockout, performed Lionel Richie’s “Stuck On You.” He is now preparing his performance as anticipation mounts for the singer, his family and his many fans, for the next round for Team XTina.
