Surprise! Last night brought another episode of the Blind Auditions, why? Who knows, but who really cares, we got to see our coaches back at it another day this week! This episode brought in a few more contenders, but only 5 more contestants were added on to the coaches teams.
Brandon Royal – “Master Blaster (Jammin’)”
Almost instantly, all of the coaches were excited when the song started playing. He kind of reminds me of Jason Derulo, and he is absolutely killin’ the performance, I’m surprised it takes so long for the coaches to push their buttons. Gwen is the first to push her button, and Blake follows not too far along after, making them the only two to push and battle it out. Alicia says that there was so much vulnerability and… balls… in his performance, that she was just amazed throughout his whole performance. Blake points out that he has had more wins than any of the three coaches combined, which is true… But Gwen also points out that she has worked with many different artists, including ones with the same style as Brandon. Adam asks the final question, and Brandon chooses to join… Team Gwen!
Casi Joy – “Blue”
First note in and the coaches are all already so impressed. Gwen almost immediately pushes her button, and Alicia is not too far along from her. About halfway through the song, Blake and Adam push their buttons, making this a four-chair turnaround for Casi! Casi had a very soft and sweet voice, and her falsetto was just amazing. Adam continues to make us laugh saying that he’s not going to get his hopes up and goes to sit off the side of the stage. Each coach really gave their best pitch, and it seemed like such a tough decision, but, to no real surprise here, Casi chose to join… Team Blake!
Ashley Levin – “Let Him Fly”
She starts off very strong, seems a little bit nervous, but I mean, who wouldn’t be in this situation?? The coaches seem into the performance, but are still taking their time to process it. Gwen and Blake push their buttons at the same time, and Alicia is not too far after pushing hers. Adam says that she looks like the physical embodiment of a ray of sunshine, and it is true. Gwen tries to convince Ashley to join her team, and oddly enough, uses Blake as her bait. Adam throws in his opinion and says that she should actually choose Alicia just to prevent Blake and Gwen from battling it out. It is a very tough decision, but Ashley chooses to join… Team Blake!
Julien Martinez – “Pride and Joy”
Very rocky and raspy voice, amazing in the first note already. Adam and Blake are both rocking out in their seats to the song, but each of the coaches take their time to push their buttons. In the very last note, ending the song with a very rocker scream, Blake and Adam both jump in excitement and push their buttons. We have not seen these two battle it out just the two of them in such a long time. Julien ultimately chooses to join… Team Adam!
Quizz Swanigan – “Who’s Loving You”
Fun fact: Quizz is the youngest person on this season being only 13 years old, and he used to be a Michael Jackson tribute artist, and when he starts singing, it is very clear why. For someone so young, he has such an amazing voice. Within the last few seconds of the song, Alicia and Gwen push their buttons making it the first time ever that these two have battled it out without Blake and/or Adam. They give their pitches while still complimenting each other, and it is so sweet. Quizz says that Gwen taught him how to spell bananas, and all I can think is SAMMMEEEE. I am kind of surprised thought because Quizz chooses to join… Team Alicia!
That’s it for tonight’s episode! Be sure to tune back in next week for recaps of the episodes.
