Monday night during Night 3 of “The Voice” Season 15, pop singer Natasia Greycloud took on Sam Smith‘s “I’m Not the Only One” and caused two coaches to turn their chairs around: Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson. Both female coaches fought hard for Natasia, while also sharing their love for one another and saying how they wanted to be on each other’s teams. In the end Natasia decided to join Team Jennifer despite being a personal fan of Kelly’s. Watch NBC’s “The Voice” blind audition video above and read the coaches’ comments below.
“I just wish y’all would have blocked Kelly,” Jennifer told male coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. “That’s what got me, girl. When you went up there, I said I want to hear the range. It’s tough for me because I wonder who you’re gonna pick. I heard a bit of JHud in there and then I was like, but I hear Kelly, too. That’s kinda what made me hit my button.”
When Jennifer said that she’s done everything from theater to film, Kelly laughed, “I don’t know if you saw ‘From Justin to Kelly’ … didn’t win an Oscar!” After she made her choice, Natastia confessed that she initially wanted to pick Kelly but then her “gut” told her to pick Jennifer instead. Did she make the right decision?
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the performance: “29 year old Natasia Greycloud from Tennessee went into her audition hoping that Kelly would turn around for her. Her performance of Sam Smith‘s ‘I’m Not the Only One’ showed off her smooth, big vocal ability. After both discussing that they were on the fence about her, Jennifer and Kelly hit their buttons at the same time, right when Natasia hit the first big run of the song. Everyone on the panel admitted that Natasia belonged with one of the big female vocalists because that’s the lane she already exists in. Jennifer won Natasia over by explaining that she is the type of coach that shows her artists that a song is more than a song and brings more to the table like theater and film training.”
