As The Voice continues on with blind auditions, viewers and judges alike get the chance to fall in love with more talented vocalists.
With the usual fun banter and jokes thrown around by the judges, they all competed for a number of their favorite auditions to round out their teams. This go round, Adam Levine came out on top. Likewise, Celeb Secrets has a breakdown of the night three’s (March 6) top talent and which team they ultimately chose.
Gaby Borromeo: Both Levine and Shelton turned their chairs for Borromeo, but Levine—who was stunned she didn’t get a four-chair turn—nabbed the singer after her performance of “Happy” by Leona Lewis. Borromeo has made demos from the age of 12. Not long ago, she also had the opportunity to work alongside John Legend.
Josh West: After his performance of “Ordinary World” by Duran Duran, West became a member of the exclusive four-chair turn club. West—who was the last performer of the night—chose Levine after they bonded over their love of 90s rock. The vocalist currently performs in a two-man band with his father.
Kawan DeBose: Prior to his audition, Dubose grew up singing in his church’s choir at the age of 5. His previous choir training paid off because his performance of “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye led three of the judges—Levine, Gwen Stefani, and Blake Shelton—to hit the buzzer for him. Ultimately, he was won over by Levine after he compared DeBose’s falsetto to Prince’s and because the coach stated, “You are truly one in a billion. You are the number one priority on Team Adam if you come to me.”
Taylor Alexander: Levine was the only judge to turn their chair for him, which automatically placed Alexander onto his team. Alexander’s country-stylized version of “Believe” by Cher quickly grabbed Levine’s attention. Before finding his home within country music, Alexander wrote his first song at 11 years old during his punk rock phase.
Micah Tryba: After boldly choosing to audition with “I’m Every Woman” by Whitney Houston, Tryba’s vocal abilities led Stefani and Shelton in to a an all-out war. Ultimately, Tryba chose Shelton despite the fact that he said prior to her decision “I can’t say that I know what it’s like to be a girl, and Gwen can’t say that she knows what it’s like to win this show.”
Aaliyah Rose: Stefani was the only judge to turn their chair for the young vocalist, which automatically placed Rose onto her team. The 14-year-old singer won Stefani over with her rendition of “Rise Up” by Andra Day. Before her audition, the famous YouTuber received a video message from Meghan Trainor. Trainor became aware of Rose’s talent after the YouTuber’s cover of her song went viral.
Troy Ramey: After his soulful performance of “Wild World” by Cat Stevens, Ramey was the second artist of the night to receive a four-chair turn. Although Shelton attempted to suck up to him, Ramey’s love for Stefani’s early work in No Doubt led him to choose her. The vocalist’s audition song of choice was his way of honoring his late father who battled throat cancer.
Jack Cassidy: Cassidy’s decision to sing and play the piano during his performance of “One of Us” by Joan Osborne was wise to say the least. Naturally, Alicia Keys was intrigued by his audition because of her piano-playing skills. Although both Keys and Levine fought for him, Cassidy ultimately chose Keys. Cassidy is a descendant of the famous Partridge Family.
Missy Robertson: Robertson has watched The Voice from its early beginnings and finally decided it was her time to audition for the show. Her performance of “Scars to Your Beautiful” by Alessia Cara led both Shelton and Keys to turn their chairs. Keys won the battle primarily because of her grasp of the positive message from her audition. Robertson is a member of The OutGo alongside her sister.
Prior to Monday night’s episode, 18 contestants had made it through. We look forward to seeing the next round of vocalists that make it though to the knockout rounds!
Season 12 of The Voice airs Monday and Tuesday at 8 PM EST on NBC.
