A stunning performance on Tuesday night’s blind auditions of “The Voice” brought Megan Rose to Team Miley Cyrus. That move made history as Miley now has the first ever all-female team for the program. Miley had to convince her to join the team over the one for rival coach Adam Levine after she sang the classic hit tune “Ode to Billie Joe” by Bobbie Gentry (watch the video above). She was the next-to-last artist to contend during the Season 13 blind auditions. Both Blake Shelton and Jennifer Hudson had already filled up their teams and could not turn their chairs.
NBC’s Emmy-winning “The Voice” premiered Monday, September 25, with the first blind auditions of this season. We offered fun, exciting live blogs for that episode plus a second night on that Tuesday, a third installment on Monday, October 2, a fourth night on Tuesday, October 3, this week’s fifth night on Monday, October 9, and sixth evening on Tuesday, October 10.
For this performance of the one-hour episode, our contributing writer Denton Davidson said in his power rankings item: “This husky-voiced country singer completed the all-female, history-making Team Miley. While she has a lot of spunk and I dig her style, I’m not sure she has the power to stand up to the competition. She may find her own country lane on Team Miley, but there are better country singers over on Team Blake.”
According to her NBC bio about the 20-year-old from California: “Megan’s dad is her biggest musical inspiration and was a natural musician who could play anything by ear. When she was younger, she discovered that her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis before she was born. Megan attends San Francisco State University while trying to pursue a career in music. She performs in and around school, singing the national anthem or performing at live events around campus. She has even sung at the San Francisco Half Marathon. It’s difficult pursuing a career in country music while living in San Francisco as there’s not much opportunity for country music artists in the area. Her dream is to move to Nashville after college to pursue her love for country music.”
