Soul singer LB Crew performed during Night 4 of “The Voice” blind auditions with Mr Probz‘s “Waves” and caused all four coaches to turn their chairs around: Adam Levine, John Legend, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton. After each panelist gave LB their best pitches, the Arkansas singer surprised everyone with his decision to join Team Adam. “I picked Adam because he gave some constructive criticism and it was honest and I appreciate that,” LB later explained. “I don’t mind getting help where help is due.” Watch “The Voice” blind audition above.
The constructive criticism that Adam gave LB was that he needed to work on his falsetto, telling him, “I think that one of my best skills as a singer is falsetto, and that’s the one area it wasn’t as good as it could be.” When Kelly interrupted to state her disagreement, Adam replied, “They may have a different opinion and you can express it as long as you just wait till I’m done talking.”
Adam finished his relatively brief comments by announcing, “When someone has the gift that you have and someone is so incredible on every level and there’s one little tiny thing that I have the right skill set to help you with, that’s why I turned. I felt like I could help you be even better than you already are, which is pretty hard.”
As for the other coaches’ pitches, Kelly bragged that she was the first one who turned around, John raved about LB’s “magnificent voice,” and Blake tried to bond with him over his knowledge of Arkansas. “Have you ever heard of Toad Suck national park there?” he asked. When the others seemed confused, Blake continued, “Maybe he’s performed at Toad Suck Daze [musical festival], I don’t know.” Adam then interjected, “This has gotta be the worst pitch of your life!”
Do you think LB made the right decision to join Adam’s team, or should he have went with Kelly, John or Blake instead? Be sure to sound off down in the comments section. The blind auditions of “The Voice” Season 16 continue next Monday and Tuesday on NBC.
