'The Voice' Season 19: Will Ryan Gallagher, Kelly Clarkson win show? Fans say 'there's no reason you shouldn't'
This 31-year-old opera singer from Michigan had coaches, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton, fighting over him, and even declaring their love for him
Although Season 19 of 'The Voice' just premiered, fans are already picking their winners. While watching the blind auditions segment of the show, quite a few singers have made a strong impression on fans, thanks to their beautiful voice and incredible personality. One such contestant is Ryan Gallagher. This 31-year-old opera singer from Michigan had coaches, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton, fighting over him, and even declaring their love for him!
Gallagher performed 'The Prayer' during the blind auditions round. As soon as Kelly heard his baritone voice, she was sold. She was singing alongside him from her chair but was a bit hesitant about whether to turn around for him or not. The other coaches gently nudged her to turn around, as she seemed to genuinely enjoy Ryan's performance. As soon as Kelly turned, Blake too turned his chair, and thus began the age-old catfight between Blake and Kelly.
When Ryan finished his beautiful song, Kelly jumped up with joy and expressed how she was in love with his voice from the very beginning. Blake on the other hand, resorted to taunting Kelly. Even before pitching to Ryan on why he would be a great coach to him, Blake advised the singer against joining Kelly's team because according to him she already had three other opera singers in her team. Kelly called Blake out and accused him of lying, and again tried persuading Ryan to join her team. She even pulled out the shirt she got for her team members, and displayed it to him, and stated how he would look great in that shirt. The coaches then began complimenting Ryan's looks, with Blake declaring that he looked like James Bond, while John Legend agreed with him.
Despite all the flattery, Blake failed to impress Ryan, for he decided to join Kelly's team. Kelly was thrilled at stealing a classical singer away from Blake and was also happy about her newest team member. Fans too were happy with Ryan's decision and began rooting for the duo to win the competition. A fan tweeted, "@kellyclarkson #VoicePremiere I really think you got a winner with Ryan. You did good not letting Blake still him from you. Good luck love you and your voice." Another fan wrote, "@kellyclarkson #VoicePremiere You got a winner with Ryan for sure." "@kellyclarkson #VoicePremiere you are going to win with Ryan!," predicted a fan.
Another fan expressed, "@kellyclarkson #VoicePremiere Not only can Ryan sing, he is very good looking ! With his voice & your know how there is NO reason you should not WIN!!!!!!!" If Ryan does manage to win 'The Voice', this wouldn't be his first victory. He has won 'American Idol' in the past, and has even appeared on 'Ex on the Beach: Peak of Love'.
'The Voice' Season 19 airs every Monday and Tuesday at 8/7c only on NBC.
