Season 5 of The Voice premiered last night, and the original four coaches were back battling for contestants during the blind auditions. Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green returned to their spinning chairs to claim potential superstars alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and the game is starting off stronger than ever. Adam took the lead last night with three standout contestants, while CeeLo and Christina snagged two each and Blake settled for just one performer.
The show got off to a rocking start when the foursome took the stage for an energetic performance of Joan Jett’s I Love Rock and Roll before Carson Daly declared, “The blind auditions start now!” With that statement, it was anybody’s game, and the first contestant delivered a performance that had three of the four judges swiveling in their chairs simultaneously. Christina and Blake fought hard, but CeeLo was selected as the first judge to add to his team.
Levine scored his first singer with 54-year old Donna Allen, an R&B singer from Florida. Christina punched her red button to claim the performer first, but it was Levine’s comment about her voice being “like the heavens opening up” that won Allen over. Team Adam grew with the additions of Nic Hawk and James Wolpert, giving him a solid start for the show’s premiere.
At the end of the first round of blind auditions, the standings are:
Team Adam: Donna Allen, Nic Hawk and James Wolpert
Team CeeLo: Kat Robichaud and Caroline Pennell
Team Christina: Matthew Schuler and Josh Logan
Team Blake: Shelbie Z
Emmy-winning The Voice returns tonight for another exciting round of blind auditions on NBC at 8/7 central. Stay tuned to see who else the coaches choose for their teams, and watch as fresh talent takes the stage to battle it out and become the next singing star.
