'The Voice' 2022 Blind Auditions: Who is Nia Skyfer? Miami singer is last contestant to make the cut on NBC show
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'The Voice' Season 22's blind auditions seem to have gone by within a blink of an eye. It seems like just last week when Camila Cabello stepped onto the stage bright-eyed and bushy-tailed ready to coach her team as the new judge on the show. However, in reality, the blind auditions ended after Nia Skyfer amanged to bag the final spot on the show.
The 24-year-old Miami resident, who originally hails from Cuba, made the bold choice of performing to Camila's 'Bam Bam' for the blind audition. Since the judges are known for being very picky and critical whenever any of the contestants on the show perform their songs, we were pretty much ready to see Camila deliver a speech nitpicking all the flaws in the performance. But instead, Camila was beyond impressed by her fellow Cuban-American artist. Unfortunately, since her team was already full she couldn't turn her chair. After watching Camila's reaction to Nia's performance and seeking her approval, John Legend turned his chair for her. Since he was the only coach to turn his chair (and also the only coach with a slot left to be filled), Nia by default joined Team Legend. If you're curious to know more about Nia, the final contestant to make it to 'The Voice' season 22, then keep reading.
