‘The Voice’ Recap: Blake Shelton Officially Fills His Final Team
The final night of Blind Auditions began with the final four-chair turn of the season, NariYella, singing “One Night Only” from Dreamgirls. Now that the audition has officially aired on TV, fans know that the singer picked Team Chance.
Blake Shelton Fills His Final Team With Country Singer
Near the middle of the episode, Shelton rightfully earned the final singer for Team Blake 2023. The singer, Grace West, came to the stage singing “Maybe It was Memphis” by Pam Tillis. As soon as she began singing, it was clear that she was going to join Team Blake. If you’re a country artist, you’re choosing Team Blake, especially for his last season.
Shelton was the first coach to turn for Grace, followed by Niall Horan, who was hilarious dressed like The Voice vet. Even though Horan dressed the part, he wasn’t able to convince the singer to join his team in the end. In a shocking moment, Kelly Clarkson turned on her charm and advocated on behalf of Shelton. After years of arguing like siblings, it was cute to see the sibling rivalry diminish.
Following his final artist, Shelton celebrated with tons of screaming, and on stage fireworks. This was truly a moment for the show, since his final team is officially closed. It was truly a bittersweet moment for all The Voice fans.
