Christiana Danielle: “Hotline Bling”
This 22-year-old from Fort Wayne, Indiana sang the Drake hit “Hotline Bling.” Keys convinced her to join her team rather than those of either Clarkson or Levine.
Brett Hunter: “She’s a Bad Mama Jama”
This 33-year-old from Oakland, California sang the Carl Carlton R&B classic “She’s a Bad Mama Jama.” Shelton, who has coached six winners to date, got him by default as he was the only coach to turn.
