The duo consists of Alaska Holloway and Madi Metcalf.
The girls first met when they were 11 and 12 years old in a singing group called American Kids. They became best friends and found that they enjoyed singing together.
Due to Madi having moved to Texas to attend college, the girls were considering ending their musical partnership when they decided to try out for the show.
The girls tried out for the show singing "Barton Hollow" by the Civil Wars. Two coaches - Adam Levine and Blake Shelton- turned around for the girls, both impressed by what they heard. Despite Adam Levine's best efforts to convince them to be on his team, Alaska and Madi picked fellow Oklahoman Blake Shelton to be their mentor.
In this part of the part of the competition, the girls went up against fellow country singer Audra McLauglin on the Everly Brothers song "When Will I Loved". Agonizing over his decision, Blake Shelton choose Audra to move forward, a decision that didn't sit well with either Adam Levine or Usher.
