'The Voice': Top 5 contestants who stood out in week 3 of the blind auditions
Though there were some really exceptional singers on 'The Voice' this week, we saw way lesser chair turns than usual.
The teams are almost full and with the blind auditions that happened this week, the judges have officially started to be a lot pickier than usual when it comes to selecting who they want on their team.
Though there were some really exceptional singers on 'The Voice' this week, we saw way lesser chair turns than usual. Some of the artists who did not manage to get a chair turn got a chance to be with Kelsea Ballerini on the 'Comeback Stage'. Now since the auditions for this week is over, here is a small recap of five contestants who stood out this week.
We start the list with the first duo performance this season. OneUp is a mixed-race gay couple hailing from New York. They performed their rendition of 'Could It Be I’m Falling in Love' by The Spinners. Though in the beginning, the coaches were a bit confused towards the end, they got a chair turn from Blake, Clarkson and Hudson. Hearing the story about how they met and fell in love, Clarkson was left in tears. And though Hudson and Blake put up a high-end bargain, in the end, the guys went with Clarkson as their coach.
Next up is a performance that received a four-chair turn. Hailing from Alabama, Kirk Jay is a 22-year-old singer who opened up about the struggles he faced growing up. Currently, he performs in a country band which also happens to be his full-time job. He sang his rendition of 'God Bless The Broken Road' by Rascal Flatts. Though the other judges had a banter as to who should be his coach, finally Jay chose Blake to be his coach, which comes as no doubt because he is, after all, a country singer.
Following OneUp and Kirk Jay is Lela who grew up listening to Latin music. She hopes that in the near future she can combine her Latin music influence with R&B and create a new genre. She performed her rendition of Camila Cabello's 'Havanna'. Though Adam and Blake complimented her voice they did not turn their chairs because their teams were getting filled up pretty soon. But, she happened to get Clarkson and Hudson to turn their chairs. She then chose Team Hudson.
Abby who hails from Cincinnati got herself injured during a horseback riding incident which left her almost paralyzed. Currently, she sings at children's birthday parties. She resorted to music during her injury which helped her get through. Performing her version of 'Scars to Your Beautiful' by Alessia Cara. She joined Clarkson's team by default.
Matthew who hails from San-Diego has been a musician practically his whole life. Matthew sang his rendition of Al Green’s 'Tired of Being Alone,' first Adam turned his chair for him followed by Shelton. Adam who confessed that he had become a huge fan of his voice, surprisingly got no comeback from Blake. So, Jarred chose Adam to be his coach for the season.
These five performances were not the only ones who stood out this week, We even witnessed exceptional singers like Cody Ray Raymond, Erika Zade, and Joey Green. The Voice' returns on Monday. Check your local listings for timings.
