‘The Voice’ recap: Blind Auditions end
Tuesday night (Oct. 10) season 13’s Blind Auditions came to a close on NBC’s The Voice, with coaches Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson having to be very selective as they completed their teams in view of The Battles. Well, let’s review the final group of singers advancing to the next stage of competition:
- Team Adam: Dave Crosby, Dylan Gerard, Hannah Mrozak, Adam Pearce, Anthony Alexander, Emily Luther, Brandon Brown, Whitney Fenimore, Jon Mero, Michael Kight and Gary Carpentier.
Just a little pastry trivia for you: yesterday night one of the artists came out and sung a cover of “Sugar” by Maroon 5. Liking his own music, Adam Levine hit his button for him, who said he was inspired by Adam. We’re talking about Michael Kight!
- Team Miley: Janice Freeman, Brooke Simpson, Ashland Craft, Shilo Gold, Addison Agen, Moriah Formica, Sophia Bollman, Karli Webster, Chloe Kohanski, Ilianna Viramontes, Katrina Rose and Megan Rose.
The Younger Now hitmaker’s team is officially an all-female team, marking the first time in the history of the entire franchise that a coach has formed a team composed entirely of one gender.
- Team Jennifer: Chris Weaver, Shi’Ann Jones, Lucas Holliday, Maharasyi Hansa, Davon Fleming, Alexandra Joyce, Kathrina Feigh, Stephan Marcellus, Eric Lyn, Ignatious Carmouche, Meagan McNeal and Jeremiah Miller
Did you know that most of Americans do love this new judge? Hudson was an instant success on “The Voice” U.K. earlier this year, mentoring artist Mo Adeniran to a victory on her very first season. As regards US, in a recent poll, exactly one-third of respondents said that they “absolutely love” her, a whopping 49% voted that she should “stick to singing,” and 18% opted for the “she’s okay” option.
- Team Blake: Mitchell Lee, Esera Tuaolo, Keisha Renee, Red Marlow, Adam Cunningham, Noah Mac, Anna Catherine DeHart, Dennis Drummond, Rebecca Brunner, Natalie Stovall, Ryan Scripps and Kristi Hoopes.
Lots of the program’s fans are betting on one of Shelton’s singers: Dennis Drummond. The Warren native chose country music star over Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine on Monday night’s Blind Auditions. Drummond performed the Black Crowes song, “She Talks to Angels” and everybody got blown away for his skill.
The Battles round will start with episode 7, next week on The Voice. Season 13’s advisors include: Joe Jonas for Team Adam, Billy Ray Cyrus for Team Miley, Kelly Rowland for Team Jennifer, and Rascal Flatts for Team Blake. The coaches can steal two losing artists from another coach. Contestants who win their battle or are stolen by another coach will advance to The Knockout rounds.
