‘The Voice’ Blind Auditions Continued With A Much Better Week
Last week on The Voice there were only a couple of artists that really stood out to me but this week was a different story. There was some real talent on the stage. Once again we saw Kelly and Alicia dominating the competition, though Blake definitely did better this week than he did last week…not that that’s hard.
Hotline Bling by Drake has never been more soulful. Danielle was on point and she delivered big time. She got turns from Adam, Kelly, and Alicia and she very wisely chose Alicia. She needs someone with Alicia’s soul.
Young Brett did Stevie Wonder’s She’s A Bad Mamajama and it was a lot funkier than one would imagine from this guy. Blake was the only one to turn his chair but I think Blake can definitely mold this guy.
Jamai, who was sporting a very Adam type shirt, sang Usher’s U Got It Bad and you could really feel it. He’s not got the best vocal control but that can be helped. Alicia and Kelly turned for him but he chose Alicia, who I think can help him the best.
Mia sang Zayn’s PILLOWTALK in her deepp sultry voice and charmed the coaches. She ended up on team Adam, which given her pop/rock possibilities seems like a good fit.
Jackie reminds me of the girls I used to do musical theater with. I mean that in the best way possible, I love that. She sang Pink’s What About Us and you can tell she’s had vocal training. She’s got great control. Alicia and Kelly turned around for her and she picked Kelly.
Reid annihilated Elton John’s Take Me to the Pilot and kind of sounded like Elton. Alicia, Kelly, and Adam turned around for him. He was a little too rocky for Blake. Of course, Blake won with rock goddess Chloe Kohanski last season. He picked Adam which is definitely the best choice.
He did Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee and who doesn’t love that song? Jorge is the first of the two Latin artists this episode to sing in Spanish which makes me very happy. Kelly was the only one to turn around and that’s going to be…interesting.
Talk about the second coming of Michael Buble. Austin did Marvin Gaye’s How Sweet It Is in a real ring-a-ding swing style. He ended up on team Blake which, again, is…interesting.
Now we’re talking. Johnny is a soulful Latin singer from New York that sang a touching song to his motherland, Puerto Rico. He got all four chairs to turn and after being serenaded in Spanish by Alicia, he chose her as his coach which was the right move.
