'The Voice' season 15: Another 4-chair turn has judges throwing their things around in applause
As the show progresses, the judges — Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton — are becoming more selective with their turns.
The fourth round of blind auditions on 'The Voice' season 15 saw 12 new contestants singing their hearts out in order to win a chair turn from the judges.
But as the show progresses, the coaches — Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton — are becoming even more selective with their turns.
First up to perform was Reagan Strange, singing her rendition of 'Meant to Be' by Bebe Rexha. Before she started performaning, the 13-year-old revealed that she hoped to get Shelton as her coach. Following her strong stage presence and performance, Adam turned his chair first, followed by Shelton, who turned his chair for her towards the end.
Though her initial preference for coach was Shelton, Adam managed to convince her to be on his team by saying, "There was an effortlessness to your power and precision … you can go all the way, I believe it." In the end, Reagan picked Adam who happens to be the right fit for her voice and range.
Next up was Fousheé, a New York City-based full-time singer at a cafe. She performing her rendition of 'Redbone' by Childish Gambino. Though the judges were waiting for her to hit the right note to turn their chairs, Hudson finally hit the buzzer first, turning her chair, and when she hit the high note towards the end Adam also hit his buzzer, which left the two rivals facing off, but it seemed to be a lucky night for Adam, because Fousheé chose him to be her coach as well.
The next person to perform was Wyatt Smith who went country by performing 'River' by Leon Bridges. Though he did not get any chair turns, Wyatt was selected for the season's online series 'The Comeback Stage.'
Next up was Chris Kroeze who performed Stevie Ray Vaughan's 'Pride and Joy,' accompanying himself with a guitar. His bluesy voice made both Hudson and Shelton turn their chairs for him. Kroeze decided to pick Shelton as his coach leaving Hudson hanging.
The next contestant was MaKenzie Thomas who returned for the second time after she failed to get any chair turns when she auditioned last season. This time she performed her rendition of 'Big White Room' by Jessie J. Luckily this time she got Hudson to turn her chair for her strong vocal control and joined her team by default.
As usual 'The Voice' saved the best for the last, Sandy Redd who performed 'River' by Bishop Briggs left the judges bamboozled with her dynamic audition, so much so that she secured a four-chair turn which resulted in the four judges fighting to get her to join their team.
Hudson who threw one of her shoes last week in appreciation at a performance, this time threw both of her shoes on stage. Clarkson too joined the throwing party and threw her jacket on stage; this was followed by Shelton who joined in with his cup and Adam copied Hudson and threw his shoes as well.
And after the throwing was done, Redd chose Clarkson to be her coach and joined Team Kelly.
Season 15 of ‘The Voice’ airs every Monday and Tuesday at 8 pm CST.
