The Voice RECAP: Tension Gets High With the Final Day of Blind Auditions
Hello everyone! It's your neighborhood BroadwayWorld Recapper, and I'm here to do what I always do, recap The Voice and tell you what you guys may have missed, or may want to here again! This was a really important episode because it was the last blind audition episode before we head for the Battle rounds. Each celebrity coach only had two spots left to fill, making the atmosphere heavy with competition. We got some great quotes from the judges this week, but the judge highlight of the night was when Adam decided to go "sit in the corner" because he wasn't wanted and ended up laying on the steps to the stage, followed by, of course, a comment from Blake about staying here. Don't worry Adam, we love you!
In case you've forgotten, we start the night of with Adam having two spots left, CeeLo having three, Christina having one, and Blake having two.
Okay, so to start the night we had a comeback kid, Matt Cermanski, who came to audition last season and didn't get any chairs turned. Taking what the coaches said to heart and singing a slower song "Have a Little Faith in Me" rather than "Teenage Dream", he got three chairs to spin around. Adam, followed by Blake and CeeLo. When the coaches pitched themselves to Matt, Adam did nothing short of begging for Matt on his team. Which seemed to pay off - Matt picked Adam, leaving Adam with one more spot.
The next person was Tamara Chauniece, who sang the soulful song "1+1". Her soul quickly captured the attention of Christina and CeeLo. Once the song was over, CeeLo made it clear that he wanted Tamara (in maybe more ways than one!). At the very least, he wanted her on his team, and he sold himself well. Tamara picked CeeLo. As for anything else CeeLo may have wanted, we're rooting for you, CeeLo! With three spots to fill, Tamara left only two more spots open on Team CeeLo.
Up next we've got Brandon Chase with his rendition of "Wanted" by Hunter Hayes. He got two chairs to spin around, Blake first, followed by CeeLo. If Brandon wasn't sold when Blake told him that country was "in his blood", it definitely was when Christina pointed out that Brandon was wearing plaid, like Blake, and not leather, like CeeLo. At this point it turned into a competition of who he would rather be dressed like, but we all knew Blake had him at the chair spinning around. Brandon goes for team Blake, leaving one more spot to fill.
Lupe Carroll was up next, a florist who delivers flowers who got onto CeeLo's team by default when CeeLo turned for him. Not much to write home about without a fight, but nonetheless, I can't wait to see what he'll show us in upcoming battles, knockouts, and live shows!
Grey was the next person up, hailing from my homestate, Florida, and wowed the men with her rendition of "Catch My Breath". All three men turned around for her, making for a heated debate about who would be the best coach. What was nice about Grey was that she was a typical seventeen year old. She had no idea who to pick! It's rare that a person will realize that they're choosing between superstars to help coach them, and it's always nice to have a contestant who shows how surreal the moment is. In the end Grey went with Adam, filling up Adam's team.
