The Voice Recap: What Does It Take?

September 18, 2012 07:27 PM by Shayla Perry

“The coaches don’t always get it right.” Probably the smartest words we’ve ever heard come out of Carson Daly‘s mouth. What was the Blind Audition on tonight’s episode of The Voice that had us all wondering if there was a mechanical glitch in the coaches’ chairs? And what kind of talent does it take to make them turn? All the details after the jump.

Tonight on NBC, in perhaps one of the biggest upsets of the Blind Auditions, coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Christina Aguilera broke the heart of one Trevanne Howell; a 33-year-old single mom of two with hopes of making it big as a recording artist, and teaching her kids to follow their dreams.

Howell dared to take on the late, great Whitney Houston‘s “I Have Nothing,” doing what most thought was a pretty good job, considering it IS Whitney (and usually the first audition they show is a definite shoe-in). But the coaches thought otherwise, sending the young mother home in tears.

So what does it take to get a chair to turn in this competition? At least tonight?

Collin McLoughlin seemed to know, making Adam, Cee Lo and Blake all turn for his “Wild World,” and landing on Team Adam.

Seventeen year old Joselyn Rivera was the first to get Christina to spin around in her chair tonight, singing Kelly Clarkson‘s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).” After some prodding from Adam, Blake also turned, but it was Christina who won Joselyn over.

Orlando’s Benji is “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” turning Adam and giving Cee Lo happy feet. It was almost fitting that Benji chose Adam, since he sounded a little like him. It’s okay though, Cee Lo snagged a few good singers for Team Red Zone.

Blake didn’t have much luck tonight, though.

You’d think that he would’ve gone for 52-year-old Lorraine Ferro, but again, none of the coaches turned their chairs for her.

Mycle Wastman is the final artist to audition for the night, singing Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.” All three of the men push their buttons, with Adam and Cee Lo giving him a standing ovation. Cee Lo makes a good case for himself, being the best current soul singer; and Mycle makes the choice to become a “Soul Brotha”…leaving Blake without any new contestants.

What did you think of tonight’s Blind Auditions? DID the coaches get it right when they didn’t turn around for Trevanne Howell? Is there another artist who made it onto a team that you think Trevanne should’ve replaced? Sound off in the Comments section below. We want to hear from you!

    I was really sad that no chair turned for Trevanne. What’s really heart-wrenching is that her cute little boy’s “mama?” wasn’t enough to stop her tears. Man, I’m still hearing that little boy saying mama in my head… [sniffle]. I surmise that she took a HUGE risk singing Whitney if she couldn’t do sing it either spot on, or better. I wish Trevanne much success, I hope she doesn’t give up.

    I think sometimes being a good or great vocalist is not all you need. You’ve heard this before I am sure, but song choice is so critical. Why try to sing Whitney when you know they are going to compare? I think sometimes women should think about singing tunes a man made popular and use your style and interpretation. Chose a song with an arrangement that ranges from soft and sultry to powerful. No comparison can be made if the original gender is not the same. Really, I think it truly boils down to chosing the perfect song.
