This evening, the blind auditions continued on The Voice and eight lucky people were able to join coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Pharrell Williams on the show’s tenth season. The hopefuls were eager and ready to shine and we were completely blown away by their performances.
ICYMI: watch our favorite auditions from last night’s premiere here.
Check out our audition highlights from tonight’s episode below…
One of the most interesting battles was for Emily Keener, she covered of “Yellow Brick Road” by Elton John. After all four judges turned around Blake asks her how old she is and she’s only 16, very shocking for such a powerful voice. Emily showcased a variety of tones in her audition she had a voice that brought a breath of fresh air to the show. “Just know that my style of coaching is not about telling people what they have to do, but more or less just listening to who you are and steering what is there. I won’t change you,” Pharrell said, securing him Emily on his team.
There was a bit of a shock when Kata Hay stomped her way to the stage and rocked it with “Redneck Woman” by Gretchen Wilson. She was one of the most energetic performers of the night. She was spunky, she ran to hug Adam Levine and jumped in his arms. Kata‘s performance made three out of four of the judges turn, the judge that didn’t turn was surprisingly, Blake Shelton. As a viewer I was very taken back I wanted him to push so badly, but he said, “Here’s Kata! Y’all fight for her! Don’t sit there and look at me like idiots!” He was giving the panel an opportunity to grab a country singer since they all yell at him for taking them. Kata stirred up quite a bit on stage, she even kissed Christina Aguielra causing Pharrell to think he was dreaming. In the end, Kata chose Christina as her coach.
Here is the complete team list from tonight’s auditions:
Team Pharrell: Emily Keener, Joe Vivona
Team Blake: Adam Wakefield, Angel Keilhaur
Team Christina: Shalyah Fearing, Kata Hay
Team Adam: Caroline Burns, Laith Al-Saadi
