Blake Shelton uses his last steal on 'The Voice' 2023
As the season progresses, the coaches on 'The Voice' have utilized all their available resources to get their team to the top. With Playoff Passes and Steals already used up, the competition has become even more intense, leaving coach Blake Shelton with his last-ever steal. But when NOIVAS, a four-chair turn, found himself on the chopping block, Blake couldn't resist taking a chance on him once again. Despite being blocked by Chance the Rapper earlier in the competition, Blake saw potential in him and used his last steal to keep him from going home. Blake was impressed by NOIVAS' energy and style, feeling like he was looking at one of his "old album covers." The country superstar was drawn to his unique look, including his hair and cowboy hat.
Blake appreciated the singer's boldness in getting up close and personal with the audience while belting out his tunes, proving that NOIVAS was not just a pretty face but also a talented performer. He said, "NOIVAS, I felt like I was looking at one of my old album covers standing up there. You’ve got the hair and the cowboy hat. I like it. I just thought your energy when you get in people’s face like that and you’re singing, that’s your way of saying, ‘Pick me.’ It was working for me, so I would go with NOIVAS.” With Blake's last steal now utilized, it remains to be seen if the singer has what it takes to go all the way on 'The Voice'. However, one thing's for sure — he's got a big fan in coach Blake, who saw something special in the singer that others might have missed.
Who did Chance The Rapper pick as the winner?
As the performance judgment reached its climax, Chance the Rapper was left with a tough decision to make. Having already used his Playoff Pass, he was faced with a difficult choice between two talented contestants who had given their all on stage. Addressing both NOIVAS and Ray, Chance noted how impressed he was with their performances, and how each of them had brought their unique style and interpretation to the competition. Speaking directly to NOIVAS, Chance acknowledged how he had blocked Blake in order to secure him a spot on his team.
He praised his passion and control on stage and expressed his belief that the singer had the potential to go all the way and win the whole competition. But Chance also had high praise for Ray and noted how he had held his own and improved throughout the competition. "This is really tough for me," Chance admitted, acknowledging the difficulty of having to make a choice between two talented artists. In the end, Chance chose Ray to move forward to the next round.
'Right move Blake'
The coaches on 'The Voice' have a reputation for being fiercely competitive, but sometimes they surprise fans with their acts of compassion. Fans were touched by Blake's gesture, seeing it as a redemption of sorts for the country star. Despite being unable to secure NOIVAS earlier, Blake recognized his talent and didn't want to see him go home without a fight. A fan tweeted, "Dear Blake, I am so bummed that this is your last season on The Voice. I absolutely love this show. You are making a difference in these singers lives. Good luck to you and Gwen. I hope you return to your chair one day." while another said, "Blake for the win".
Another tweet was also found saying, "Blake your team is great I believe you will be the voice champion" As The Voice dropped a preview of the latest episode on Youtube, fans crowded the comment section there as well. Some said, " OMG Blake. Thank you for choosing noivas!! I really wanted him in the competition!!" while some said, "Did you just use your LAST steal on Noivas?? Mad mad respect Blake". One comment really stood out. They said, " Blake is making some great calls on his last season. I hope he returns someday:(("
