Alicia Keys emerged victorious in securing an artist that all the judges fought hard for.
Season 14’s Blind Auditions continued on NBC’s The Voice on Tuesday night with coaches Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine all fighting for artists. Heading into the night, Clarkson was the only coach with a block remaining.
First up was Spensha Baker, singing The Beatles’ “Blackbird.” Baker came to the competition with a lot of experience, and she gave a folk-country performance that caught the eyes of Clarkson and Shelton. Shelton praised her lower register. Baker ultimately leaned into her country side and went with Team Blake.
Next up, Alexa Cappelli sang “I’ve Got the Music In Me” by Kiki Dee. She put a lot of power behind her vocals, and Clarkson and Levine turned quickly. Shelton sided with Clarkson, playing up his rivalry with Levine. Clarkson even sang with Cappelli, sealing the deal. She joined Team Kelly.
Adrian Brannan sang “Two More Bottles of Wine” by Emmylou Harris in the next performance. Brannan’s delivery had a strong country sound, but failed to turn any chairs.
The following artist, Wilkes, turned things around with his performance of “One Headlight” by The Wallflowers. Levine and Shelton both turned for him for a classic showdown between the two longtime coaches. Wilkes ultimately went with Team Blake.
In auditions that were not fully aired, JessLee joined Team Blake, and Jordyn Simone joined Team Alicia.
Next, Jaron Strom sang “This Magic Moment.” His crooner sound got Shelton to press his button, and Strom joined Team Blake by default.
The last artist of the night was Terrence Cunningham, the grandson of Etta Baker. He sang “My Girl” by The Temptations and secured a four-chair turn effortlessly. All four coaches fought hard for the artist, but he joined Team Alicia.
Who do you think has the strongest team so far? The Voice continues next week on NBC.
