Last night on The Voice the blind auditions continued, and Blake Shelton‘s worst nightmare came true when he lost a Country artist to Adam Levine. Tonight, the blind auditions continued with some major powerhouse vocals for the mentors to fight over! Would Blake Shelton get his revenge?
After last night’s defeat by Adam Levine, Blake Shelton showed up for day four of the blind auditions on The Voice, armed with his male Country artist award, because, well, “Usher doesn’t have one of these,” he chuckled.
Even an award can’t help sometimes, or at least in the case of Audrey Karrasch, who came out singing Price Tag and really showed super confidence on the stage. Her vocals were awesome and her stage presence rocked – girl knew exactly how to work it! Blake was the first mentor to turn, but Audrey went with Usher because he was just too cute to say no to. So much for that award, eh Blake?
19-year-old Brandon Roush, who works with Autistic children, gave us a powerful rendition of With A Little Help From My Friends. Shakira was thrilled that she was the only one who turned, adding him to her team, while Blake and Adam were shocked by Brandon’s look. “I didn’t expect a white guy with long hair,” Shelton joked, while Levine compared Brandon to someone from Megadeth.
And the powerhouse vocals seemed to be the theme tonight on The Voice, as Patrick Dodd hit the stage next with his version of Walking in Memphis. Patrick blew it out of the park with his raspy, soulful sound. It was a battle between Adam and Shakira, both of whom pleaded their hearts out. Adam told Patrick he had the utmost respect for what he could do with his voice, and in the end, Patrick was team Adam.
Then we saw a few quickies added: Trevor Davis, a pop artist joined team Blake; R&B artist, C. Perkins joined team Shakira; and returning hopeful, Agina Alvarez won Adam over with her second audition.
When Orlando Dixon hit the stage with his version of Ne-Yo’s So Sick, he was sweating as he waited for someone to turn around. His performance was not the best, but Usher heard something there, and turned around. Orlando was ecstatic that he would get to work with his very own idol.
The final audition of the night came from Savannah Berry, with her version of Safe And Sound. Not only was her voice angelic, but she had some power behind it as well. Oh, and did we mention that she was only 17? Wow, she nailed it, and even Usher called himself an “idiot” for being the only mentor to not hit his button. Of course, when asked to name her musical influences, she said Miranda Lambert, which sparked a war between Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
Of course, that was until Shakira put her two cents in. “These two guys, they’re almost deaf already,” she chuckled. Then Blake pulled out his Country power, claiming he also hung out with Jennifer Nettles recently (who Savannah also idolizes) and then adding how much he would love to add Savannah to her family. Of course, at the end of the show, Blake whipped out the ole award, displaying it proudly and exclaiming, “I didn’t even have to use this!”
