‘The Voice’ Battles: Samara Brown sparks battle among coaches, stays with John Legend
Earlier in the blind auditions, Samara Brown had picked John Legend despite Ariana Grande wooing her
The battles on ‘The Voice’ Season 21 continued on Day 2 as we saw two of the most skilled singers namely Brittany Bree and Samara Brown locking horns from John Legend’s team. The battle was expected to pick up heat and that’s exactly what happened when both the contestants got a standing ovation from all the four coaches.
Brittany Bree, who had earned a rare four-chair turn in her blind auditions, performed Aretha Franklin’s iconic number ‘Something He Can Feel’ along with Samara Brown. The latter had picked John Legend in the blind auditions despite Ariana Grande wooing her. Brittany Bree sang all her life in a church whereas Samara Brown from The Bronx wowed Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, John Legend, and Ariana Grande with her insane vocals in the blinds.
Samara Brown sparks battle between coaches
John Legend with the help of his advisor Camila Cabello prepared the two powerhouse singers before their epic face-off on the stage. Brittany Bree and Samara both proved how amazing they can be with their melodies. All the coaches stood up in excitement as they belted out their performance with an intention to move to the knockouts.
John Legend was very much aware that whoever he picks as a winner, the opponent will be stolen by the judges. Keeping in mind the same, Legend ultimately picked Bree as the winner and as expected, the rest of the judges namely Kelly Clarkson and Ariana Grande jumped on the opportunity as they pressed their respective red buzzers to steal Samara Brown. However, the biggest twist came when John Legend too stepped in with only one ‘SAVE’ left. Brown had to pick between Kelly, Ariana and original mentor Legend in order to continue her journey on the show. Despite everyone wooing the singer, Brown showed her loyalty and opted for Legend after much deliberation. Ariana and Kelly will now use their steals next week.
