Tuesday’s edition of “The Voice” marked the end of the Blind Auditions as all four coaches filled out their slates of 12 artists apiece. Alicia Keys bagged two of these singers for her team, while Adam Levine, reigning winning coach Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani got one apiece.
None of the six artists had all four judges hitting the button to turn their chairs.The lone non-survivor was Stephen Bores, who failed to impress with a rendition of Bob Marley‘s 1980 song “Three Little Birds.”
First up was Vanessa Ferguson who rocked the house with her performance of “Don’t Let Me Down,” the 2016 hit for The Chainsmokers. This 31-year-old from Greensboro, NC is classically trained and knows her way around a song. While Levine took a pass, Ferguson had Keys, Shelton and Stefani fighting for heris affections. Shelton tried to make his case that he would not try to countrify her but ,in the end, she went with her idol, Keys.
The next artist, Dawson Coyle, had the crowd hopping with “Happiness,” a track from the 2016 album “Hard Love” by American Christian rock band Needtobreathe. However only Shelton turned so this 16-year-old from Williamstown, NJ ended up as the final artist on his team. Will he be the one to win the show for Shelton again?
Up third was Jozy Bernadette, who had Levine and Stefai turning for her stripped-down version of The Guess Who 1970 rock classic “American Woman.” While Levine tried to win her over, this 25-year-old from Grand Forks, ND opted to become the final artist on Stefani’s team as she identified most with her musical stylings.
Only Keys and Levine remained in the hunt for talent. After both took a pass on Moris, Levine liked the sound of Sheena Brook as she crooned the 2004 Sugarland hit “Baby Girl.” This 33-year-old from Fort Myers Beach, FL started out as a rocker, then tried hip hop and has now turned to country. While she would have been a better fit for Shelton, his team was full. But he could well steal her in an upcoming round.
That left Keys as the only coach still in need of an artist. Knoxville native Chris Blue, 26, sang the blues with his rendition of “Tracks of My Tears,” the 1965 hit for Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Even though no other coach was contending for this talent, he is a good fit with Keys.
