With only a few spots left on the teams this season, the blind auditions are heating up on NBC’s The Voice. This marked the end of the blind auditions and the coaches have to fill the remaining spots on their team to make 12.
First up was Matt Cermanski, who returned for a second audition on The Voice stage. Cermanski performed “Have a Little Faith In Me.” Levine was the first to turn around for the acoustic rock artist. Shelton closely followed Levine by pushing his button; Green then quickly turned his chair around. After a heated battle, Cermanski chose to join Team Adam.
Next up was an Irish rocker named Diego Roman Navaira, who performed “Rebel Yell.” Even with a passionate performance, Navaira did not get any chairs to turn. All of the coaches had a positive review for Navaira but said due to the limited amount of spots, they could not turn around.
Tamara Chauniece performed “1 +1.” Instantly, Aguilera turned her chair around. Green also turned his chair around within the first opening notes of the performance, leaving Aguilera and Green to fight over Chauniece. In the end, Chauniece followed her gut and became the next member of Team Cee Lo.
Brandon Chase from Texas took The Voice blind audition stage next. Chase picked “Wanted” by Hunter Hayes to sing for his blind audition. Shelton was the first coach to turn around for Chase. Green also pushed his button for the country singer. The competition for Chase heated up, but in the end Chase joined Team Blake.
Next up was Lupe Carroll, a flower delivery person. Carroll performed “If I Were a Carpenter.” Green was the first and only coach to turn his chair around, so Carroll became a member of Team Cee Lo.
Now each coach only had one remaining spot on his or her team. Next to audition was the vocalist known as Grey. Grey performed “Catch My Breath,” originally performed by Kelly Clarkson. Levine was the first coach to turn around, followed by Shelton. Green was the last coach to turn around for Grey. After much discussion, Grey became the last member of Team Adam.
Dominic Scott Kay, a former actor, took to The Voice stage to perform “Easy.” Even with a strong performance, Kay could not get any coaches to turn around. The coaches encouraged Kay to keep working towards his dream.
Michael Lynch from Chicago was up next. Lynch performed “Bailamos,” originally performed by Enrique Iglesias. Aguilera was first to turn around, closely followed by Green and Shelton. The fight over Lynch was heated and Levine even excused himself to go sit on the edge of the stage. In the end, Lynch became the final member of Team Christina.
Denna Johnson was the next vocalist to audition for The Voice. Johnson sang “Stars.” Even with a passionate and powerful performance, none of the coaches turned around.
Shelton and Green had the last two spots left up for grabs.
Brian Pounds, took The Voice stage next. Pounds sang “Wagon Wheel.” Shelton was the first coach to turn around which was closely followed by Green. Even though the competition was tough, Pounds became the last member of Team Blake.
Green was the last artist left with a spot on his team.
The last person to take part in the blind auditions was Shawn Smith. Smith is a veteran, experienced IED and due to that lost 80 percent of hearing in his right ear. Smith performed “Chicken Fried” by the Zac Brown Band. Green hit his button and Smith became the final member of Team Cee Lo.
Tomorrow night NBC will have a special two-hour recap of The Voice blind auditions. The battle rounds will start next week.
