It’s time for Season 15 of The Voice. The judges are Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, and Blake Shelton.


First up is 15-year old Sarah Grace from Houston, Tx. She plays piano and trumpet and she used to think the blues were old people, but she realized it’s an emotional genre. She’s really honored to have this opportunity and she’s there with her parents and her sister.


Sarah takes the stage and performs Ball and Chain by Janis Joplin. Kelly hits his button first. Blake follows a short time later and Jennifer hits her button as she’s finishing. Sarah is a 3-chair turn.   


Adam greets her and he says he gets to be an emcee of sorts. Kelly says she had stank face. Jennifer says they call that sass. Sarah did not like the stank face comment. Kelly says she did win last season with a 16-year old. Kelly says she has an old soul voice.


Jennifer says she forgot what she wanted to say. Jennifer says Sarah seems to know who she is and what she wants to do and that was amazing. Blake says when Sarah got to the back half of that song her scream was full of grit and passion. Blake says he’s a fan and he thinks he’d be a great coach.


Adam says Sarah Grace, the pint-sized wonder, who do you pick as your coach. Sarah says this is such a hard decision. She thought she had it figured it out, but now she’s not sure she does. Sarah picks…Kelly.


For the first time ever, there will be a fifth coach. Kelsea Ballerini will be coaching six artists who did not get a chair from the four television coaches. She will select the top two finalists from her team to compete for America’s vote and they will take the final spot on the live shows.


The next artist is Tyshawn Colquitt from Cincinnati, Ohio. He is the oldest of ten kids and he wants to use this platform to get where their family is financially stable. He takes the stage and performs Like I Can by Sam Smith. The coaches listen intently and Jennifer seems impressed. Jennifer finally hits her button. Blake follows a few moments later. Tyshawn is a 2-chair turn.


Blake says Tyshawn had a great voice and when he hit his falsetto it was great. Blake knows he’s in over his head, but he’d like to be his coach and congratulations he’s on The Voice. Jennifer says his voice is fantastic. She asks what he wants to do and he says he wants to bring old school R&B back. Blake says that’s what he does. Kelly says those high things were crazy and Jennifer says he had a little Teddy Pendergrass and Curtis Mayfield in his voice.


Adam asks who Tyshawn picks as his coach. Tyshawn says I pick…Jennifer. Blake says what?!? Are you kidding me? Tyshawn brought pound cakes for the coaches.


Next, we have Tyke James from Laie, Hi. He started playing guitar and singing when he realized it was a powerful thing God gave mankind. He sings at a taco truck. He says there are bigger venues around, he’s just not there yet. He steps on stage with a guitar and perform Perfect by Ed Sheeran. Kelly says pretty. Adam hits his button. Tyke will be on Team Adam.


Adam goes to Tyke and says they should have turned around, but they didn’t. Adam says he loved his voice. Adam says he seems like someone everyone is going to fall in love with. Adam says he definitely has a modern voice but old school too.


The next artist is Ayanna Joni from Yonkers, NY. She was a child actor in several commercials and was in a girl group and opened for Ludacris. But then she got pregnant when she was 18 and she put everything on hold to take care of her daughter. She is currently a wedding singer.


Ayanna takes the stage and performs Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato. Kelly is singing along. Jennifer sings along too. No one hits their button and Adam looks like he regrets it. Blake says he’s sorry he didn’t hit his button, but it was a little out of his lane and he overthought it. Jennifer says she was so close, but some of the notes were a little under. Kelly and Jennifer both tell her to come back.


Ayanna was selected by Kelsea Ballerini so she will still get a shot and be coached by Kelsea for The Comeback Stage. You can checkout details about The Comeback Stage on The Voice app.


Next is Mercedes Ferreira-Dias from Miami, Fl. She was on last season and she says Kelly was so close to hitting her button last season and Adam advised her to come back. Mercedes says she has trained a lot more and she hopes this time she’ll get a chair turn and connect with her song.


Mercedes takes the stage and sings She Used to Be Mine by Sara Bareilles. Blake hits his button and Kelly immediately follows just as she finishes. Kelly recognizes her. Kelly says she’s so proud she came back. Jennifer asks what kind of music she sings and Mercedes says pop. Blake says her voice is so personal and he hears her heart. He says she’s very unique.


Kelly says Mercedes has a beautiful, angelic kind of style. Kelly says she’s so glad she came back and she’s glad she made it. Jennifer says she’d stand out on Blake’s team. Mercedes says her mom has a huge crush on Blake. Adam says who do you pick as your coach? Mercedes says she thinks…she’s going to choose…she’s going to pick…Blake.


Next we have Radha from Jersey City, NJ. Her dad used to be in a band when he was younger and he played guitar. Her first big performance was during a Filipino festival. She takes the stage and sings Mamma Knows Best by Jessie J. Adam hit his button and blocked Jennifer. Jennifer and Blake both hit at the last second and Kelly points to the Blocked lights on the floor. Jennifer is not looking happy. Adam raises his hand.


Adam says the beginning threw him so far back into his chair he didn’t know if he’d get up again. Then he hit his button because he’s not an idiot and then he had to decide who to block. He was so amazed by Radha and she emits an amazing vibe when she sings and he is her guy. Adam apologizes to Jennifer and she says her feelings are so hurt and she doesn’t know what to do about it.


Blake says he doesn’t think they ever had an audition where someone kicked the door down like Radha did and her voice stayed on the whole time. Blake says she should pick him because Adam took away her chance to work with Jennifer. Adam thinks Radha could win with him and Blake says she could definitely win. Radha picks…Adam.


The next act to hit the stage is Kameron Marlow from Kannapolis, NC. He never thought his music would take him anywhere and now he’s here. He sings One Number Away by Luke Combs. Kelly hits her button pretty quickly, followed immediately by Blake. Kameron was a 2-chair turn.


Adam and Jennifer say Kameron was so good. Adam asks if he even had a chance and Kameron says no. Kelly is telling Kameron not to do it. Adam starts chanting choose Blake and the audience starts chanting and Kameron says over everyone and quickly…I choose Blake.


Kelly and Adam have made an alliance to help each other. Our next act is Mikele Buck. He was deployed to Iraq after 9/11 and he had a friend was a song writer, but when they returned home he became one of the 22 soldiers a day who commit suicide. He takes the stage to perform She Used to Be Mine by Brooks and Dunn. The judges are listening intently and Blake and Kelly keep eyeing each other. Kelly and Blake both hit at the very end.


Adam says he’s going to coach Kelly through this because he’s been through it. Adam tells Kelly not to attack Blake because it will make Mikele more sympathetic to Blake. Blake says him singing that song is going to hit America straight in the gut. Adam advises Kelly to take one more breath. Kelly says Brooks and Dunn have been her favorite country singers since she was a kid and she loves country music. Kelly says her husband is Blake’s manager. Mikele asks if she’s been turkey hunting and she says her husband took her for her 30th birthday, but she couldn’t shoot it. It’s time for Mikele to pick a coach and we got to commercial…


We’re back with Mikele Buck and he just finished performing and got both Kelly and Blake to turn. It’s now time for him to make a decision and he looks around and he picks…Kelly.


Next up is Sam Hastings from Portland, Me. His mom has always been super supportive with music. He was always afraid to sing in front of people and his mom helped him overcome that. The biggest crowd he’s played for was 40 people. He takes the stage and sings Angela by The Lumineers. Sam did not get a chair turn.


Blake says he loved Sam’s voice but maybe next time sing something with a little bit more range. Kelly says she loved that he had a Mumford and Sons vibe.


Our next artist is Patrique Fortson from Atlanta, Ga. He started singing when he was 4-years old and he got signed when he was 6 and started performing when he was 7 and was the youngest gospel artist. He takes the stage and performs Get Here by Oleta Adams.  Jennifer hits her button. Adam hits his button as well and Jennifer looks at Adam as if he’s crazy. Patrique is a 2-chair turn.


Adam says he had to turn for Patrique because to not do so would be an insult to singing. Adam says he needs this in his life and motions to his clothing. Patrique says if this doesn’t work out, he’ll style Adam. Jennifer says she’d like to be his coach. That blessed her spirit and when his voice opened up the gates of heaven opened up. Jennifer says she’s done every form of a stage and she can help him get to where he wants to go. Adam says he can help him make things happen to.


Kelly says Patrique, who do you pick as your coach? Patrique says he picks…and then he starts singing a Jennifer song and he has joined Team Jennifer.


The final artist of the night is 13-year old Kennedy Holmes from St. Louis, Mo. She was a dancer and she loves to sing and perform. She also plays volleyball, run track, and swim. She takes the stage and sings Turning Tables by Adele. Kelly, Jennifer, and Blake all look at each other and Adam hits his button. Blake follows, then Jennifer, and then Kelly. Kennedy is a 4-chair turn.


Blake says their ratings are going to shoot through the roof this season. Blake says Kennedy is the best vocalist they’ve had audition this year. Blake doesn’t want her to get distracted by the fact he’s a country artist and she’s the greatest of all time. He would like her to pick him as her coach and teach him to sing like that. Kelly says her voice is beautiful and so good and she deserved every one of those chairs to turn around.


Jennifer says how long have you been singing and Kennedy starts to cry. Kennedy says one of her first performances was I Am Changing and she’s dreamed to sing with Jennifer and Jennifer says she’s ready and she goes up to the stage. Jennifer says she is so gifted. Adam is going to pretend like and Kelly says you have a chance? Adam says very rarely does someone come around that ignites their passion to do what they do and she did that. Adam says after 15 seasons she could be the biggest thing to come from the show. Jennifer says she is a gem and she can instill everything she could for her she will do that.


Blake says it’s time for Kennedy to pick her coach. Kennedy says she truly loves and adores each and every one of them, but…she picks Jennifer.

We’re back for the second night of blinds on The Voice! Let’s meet our first artist of the night! Keith Paluso is from Memphis, TN and he gets excited about birds. He is auditioning for The Voice to show his son sometimes you have to take a chance.


Keith takes the stage and performs Way Down We Go by Kaleo. Blake hits his button pretty early in the performance. Kelly is looking at Adam and asks if he’s going to go. Adam hits his button, but Blake has blocked Adam. Keith is Team Blake.


Jennifer says she loved Keith’s voice, it was so soulful. Kelly loved his voice and she’ll steal him if Blake is stupid enough to let him go. Adam says he got a great coach. Blake says America is going to love his voice, it’s going to be a lot of fun.


Our next artist is Claire DeJean from Dallas, Tx. She’s 17 and she teaches kindergarten through fourth graders acting classes and dance. Claire takes the stage and sings Hurt Somebody by Akon. Blake hits his button pretty early and she shows emotion as she sings, but she gets back on track. Kelly and Jennifer are talking about how pretty her voice is but Kelly is listening for her upper register. Kelly hits her button as Claire finishes her performance. Claire is a 2-chair turn.


Adam says Claire was amazing and he missed out because he’s a dummy, but she should go with Kelly. Jennifer says she has two great picks to choose from. Blake says she is one of those artists that comes around that often. He says he won’t talk about the fact he won 6 years and Kelly says not last year when I arrived. Blake says he’s not from Texas, but he’s darned close.


Kelly says she’s more of a soulful singer and has that vibe and Claire agrees. Kelly says she has no one like her on her team and she’d be stoked to work with her. Adam says I think it’s time…who do you pick as your coach? Claire says oh my gosh…I pick Kelly.


Next we have Franc West from Atlanta, Ga. He says he first sang when his mom was in church and she choked on a piece of candy and he picked up the mic and took over. Franc takes the stage to sing (Sittin’ On) The Dock of The Bay by Otis Redding. The judges seem to be enjoying the performance. Adam and Jennifer are looking at each other. Jennifer looks like she wants to push her button. Jennifer looks at Blake and he nods. Jennifer hits her button right before Franc finishes.


Blake says his voice sounds so accomplished and seasoned. Franc says he found a new love for music when he exited the military. Adam wants to know what was going through Jennifer’s head and she says the squeal got her. She welcomes Frank to JHud productions!


The next artist to take the stage is Michael Lee from Ft. Worth, Tx. He’s a newlywed and he and his new wife do Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has chosen to perform The Thrill is Gone by B.B. King and he’s playing guitar. Adam has realized he’s playing guitar. He hits his button. Jennifer also hits her button. Jennifer throws her shoe and Adam stands up. Blake hits his button at the last moment. Michael is a 3-chair turn.


Blake says he could coach this guy, what a match made in hand. Adam says great pitch Blake. Blake says Michael deserves all the button pushes he could get. Adam says when he turned around…first, he’s the only coach has worked with solo guitar players who play the blues. Blake says he’s also worked with an artist like that. Kelly advises Michael to choose a team he might stick out on and she’s Team JHud all the way because there is no one like him on her team.


Jennifer says she’s sure Michael can put that guitar down and his voice would still stand out and she can’t play guitar but she can sing. Adam asks who he picks as his coach. Michael picks…Blake.


Next, we have Ele Ivory and she lives in Nashville, Tn. She works in a cave and she works in artist relations at The Caverns for the bluegrass underground series. Ele takes the stage to sing Jump by Julia Michaels. She plays the keyboard as she sings. Adam says this close and he’s looking at Jennifer. Adam says this close two more times.


Adam asks what her name is and he says it’s all there and mostly so great. Jennifer says she has a great voice, a beautiful voice, but it took her a minute to find her pitch. Adam tells her to promise him she’ll come back. Adam says she was so awesome it drove him crazy.


Kelsea Ballerini has chosen Ele Ivory for her team for The Comeback Stage. Kelsea says she brought Ele back because when she went from her regular voice to her head voice, it was angelic.


Our final artist of the night is DeAndre Nico from Port Arthur, Tx. DeAndre talks about how their small town was affected by the Hurricane Harvey. He plays piano and drums. Since the hurricane all he’s been doing is performing and sleeping on couches. DeAndre takes the stage and performs When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars. The coaches are listening intently and Jennifer looks down the line. Adam hits his button. Jennifer follows a moment later. Kelly draws back in surprise at a run. Blake hits his button and Kelly is the last to turn. DeAndre is a 4-chair turn.


Adam says he heard the greatness in his voice early and he’s amazing and he is going to fight hard for him. Adam stands up and takes off his sweater. Kelly says she loves the big round beautiful notes he was hitting. She thinks he’s really rad.


Jennifer says the way his voice is, the range, the depth, and he looks good too. She will just let him stand there flat foot and let him be the artist he wants to be. Blake says he has so much skill and he has some similarities with Jennifer, Kelly won last season, Adam was the first to hit his button, or DeAndre can go with the winningest host on the show. Adam feels like he led the charge on this one and he thinks he can take him all the way.


Jennifer says DeAndre, who do you pick as your coach? DeAndre says he’d pick whoever turned first…so he picks Adam.

Last week, the Season 15 auditions began and our coaches were on fire! Tonight, as the talent continues to impress, Blake finds himself being challenged to land a country artist, the returning coach has nothing but love for Jennifer until she’s ready to fight for what she wants, and Kelly will have back-up, Brynn Cartelli.


The first artist of the night is Dave Fenley from Nashville, TN. His wife has supported him even when it wasn’t easy to do so. His mom wants to hug Blake…a lot. Dave is going to perform Help Me Hold On by Travis Tritt. He’s counting on Blake to come through for him, but Kellly knows music and he’d love for those two to turn. Either way, his mom wants to get a hug from Blake. Kelly is quick to hit her button. Adam is yelling at Blake to turn. Blake finally hits his button. Dave is a 2-chair turn.


Adam says he’s been so beaten down by Blake and his country jamboree, but he wants Dave to know he has two options: Blake and Kelly. Dave says he likes hip-hop and he’s a beat boxer. Blake says hats off for Dave’s song selection. Kelly says Travis is her favorite male vocalist in country. Adam says it’s time…and Blake interrupts and says no. Dave says his mom wants a neck hug and Blake says he only does those for his contestants mother’s.


Adam says it’s time for Dave to pick his coach. Dave’s mom says she wants her hug, he better pick Blake. Dave says he’s 40-years old and has asked a lot from his mom and dad and his mom has never asked anything for him. Dave says he picks…Blake.


Our next artist is Steve Memmolo from Boston, MA. He says people tell him all the time he looks like Ben Affleck. He does a stand-up improve once a week, but as much as he loves comedy he wants to follow his dream to play music. He takes the stage and performs Spooky by Atlanta Rhythm Section. The judges listen intently and Adam finally swoops in and slaps his button. Jennifer follows a moment later. Steve is a 2-chair turn.


Kelly says he’s white! She didn’t see that coming. Adam says Steve looks like Ben Affleck and sounds like Aretha Franklin. Adam says every once in a while a Steve happens and he turned because he saw Jennifer getting ready to push her button. Jennifer says what attracted her was her vocal approach. Adam says his voice is there. Jennifer says she can help him find his groove and Adam says his voice has the perfect pocket.


Blake says I think it’s that time…who do you pick as your coach man? Steve says he chooses…Adam Levine.  


The next artist is Audri Bartholomew from St. Louis, MO. She loves music and the power of music is so strong. She’s going to perform Never Enough by Loren Allred, a former contestant from The Voice from season 3. Jennifer is singing a long and Adam is encouraging Jennifer to push her button. Adam looks like he’s thinking. Jennifer hits her button right towards the end. Audri is on Team Jennifer.


Blake greets Audri and he says he’s glad Jennifer turned because that’s where she belongs. He congratulates her. Jennifer says she wants to sing that song and Audri says let’s do it and Jennifer joins her on stage. Jennifer loved that Audri was brave enough to take on a song like that.


Rachel Messer is our next artist to take stage from Fort Gay, WV. Her grandfather was in a bluegrass band and her dad plays guitar and they are the foundation for what she does. She’s going to sing a classic country western song, I Want to be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart by Patsy Montana. Kelly is quick to hit her button. Kelly is looking at Blake telling him not to do it and he hits his button at the last moment. Rachel is a 2-chair turn.


Kelly says she was singing from the first words. Kelly is yelling at Blake and Blake says he not only wants Rachel, he knows what to do with her. Kelly says she’ll sing some Patsy Cline right now and Adam says the sooner you let go, the sooner you can get over it. Adam says this is the Season 14 winner losing her mind. Adam says Rachel is more country than everyone in here. Blake says she’s the kind of artist that excites him because she honors classic country music.


Adam says Rachel who do you pick as your coach? Rachel says Kelly, I love you…but I pick Blake.


The next artist is Brent Morgan from Madison, AL. He’s a jingle writer, but his dream is to be a musician. He takes the stage and sings Feel It Still by Portugal. The Man. He’s singing a slower version and the coaches are dancing in their seats and listening. Brent does not get a chair to turn.


Adam says Brent’s voice was flawless, the performance was great, if he had any advice it’d be to find something to jump out. Jennifer asks what he does and he says he’s streams online. Adam says he can consider himself a vocalist. Is his journey over? Only one artist from tonight will be chosen by the fifth coach Kelsea Ballerini for The Comeback Stage.


We see Brynn Cartelli visiting the current artist’s who are auditioning. We see her greet Chevel Shepherd from Farmington, NM. Her dad named her after a car not because he loved cars, but because he thought it was a rockstar name. She is going to perform If I Die Young by The Band Perry. She would freak out if Blake’s chair were to turn. Blake and Kelly are eyeing each other and Kelly hits her button. Blake listens a bit longer and then hits his button. Jennifer hits her button at the end and Blake is surprised. Chevel is a 3-chair turn.


Adam says Chevel was amazing. He says she was basically a 4-chair turn but by the time he decided what to do everyone else had already turned around. Kelly says Chevel walks the line between country and pop, but she has a great voice and she’d love to work with her.


Jennifer says she turned around for Chevel because her voice was so beautiful and she wanted to see her. Plus, she wanted to see the battle between Blake and Kelly. Blake says hi Chevel and Chevel stops crying and Kelly gets up and says no! Jennifer says if she wants someone sane, she can come to Team JHud. Blake says it’s natural for Chevel to be in her head and there will be a natural growth that will happen very quickly on the show. He would love to be her coach during the process. Chevel says she shares the same birthday with Blake. Kelly says Brynn is here and she’s the winner from last season and she’d stick with Chevel as well.


Adam says Chevel, who do you pick as your coach? Chevel says I pick…and we go to commercial.


We’re back and we’re about to find out who Chevel picks as her coach. Chevel is hesitating and she says…Kelly. Kelly is shocked and Adam is celebrating and goes up to hug Chevel and Kelly.


Next we have Bryan Cherry from Woodbridge, VA. He has a long-distance relationship with his girlfriend who lives in Bermuda. He says the next step for them would be marriage. Bryan takes the stage to sing Nothing Can Change This Love by Sam Cooke. He immediately gets Jennifer’s attention. Adam looks down at Jennifer as Bryan is finishing. He does not get a chair turn.


Jennifer says Bryan lost his way in the song, but she thinks he has an amazing voice. Kelly says he should feel confident when he leaves because he has a really cool voice. Stay tuned to find out if Bryan will be the artist to be chosen for The Comeback Stage.


The next artist is Delaney Silvernell from Los Angeles, CA. Her entire family is in wrestling, but she’s always wanted to be a singer. She takes the stage to perform In My Blood by Shawn Mendes. Kelly hits her button quickly. Kelly is dancing while Delaney performs. Delaney is on Team Kelly.


Kelly is so glad she’s Delaney’s coach. She’s been her in she gets in her head and wants to be perfect, but she needs to let go. Delaney is excited to have Kelly as her coach.


Brynn meets next with Anthony Arya from Santa Cruz, CA. He’s 15 and sings folk rock. He performs Danny’s Song by Loggins and Messina. Adam hits his button. Anthony will be on Team Adam. Adam says it blows his mind and what’s great is because he turned he got to see the performance and people are going to fall madly in love with him.


Kelly says when Adam turned around she knew he was with the right person to coach Anthony. She says he’s so handsome and he looks like a Greek God.  Blake agrees that Adam is the right coach for him.  


Up next we have Natasia Greycloud from Nashville, TN. She would love Kelly to turn for her because she was the first person she seen on a show like this and she’s very authentic. She steps up and sings I’m Not the Only One by Sam Smith. The coaches are all listening closely. Jennifer and Kelly are on the fence and Adam says she’s dope. Natasia hits a high note and both Jennifer and Kelly hit their buttons to turn. Natasia is a 2-chair turn.


Blake says a vocalist like her needed Kelly or Jennifer as a coach so he respectfully decided to sit out. Kelly says her and Jennifer were trying to figure out why they weren’t turning. Jennifer asks who she likes and Natasia says Whitney, Mariah, Kelly, and Jennifer. Adam says if he and Blake had turned it would have been awkward.


Jennifer asks Natasia what she would like in a coach and Natasia says to help her know the moment when to hold out a note. Jennifer says in that case, let me tell you about JHud Productions. She says they do a little everything and Kelly says she doesn’t know if she seen From Justin to Kelly. Jennifer says she specializes in the kind of singer Natasia would like to be.


Adam says Natasia, who do you pick as your coach? Carson asks her family who she’ll pick and they said she was leaning towards Kelly, but they don’t know. Natasia says…I pick Jennifer Hudson!


Next we have Lynnea Moorer from Monterrey, CA. She does YouTube videos and her mother is going to be with her while she performs. She has chosen to sing Location by Khalid. She does not get a chair to turn. Adam says there is a lot happening with her voice and he didn’t know who she was. Kelly asks her to sing something slow and Lynnea sings Someone Like You and Jennifer raises her arms. Jennifer says this is The Voice and she should sing a song that showcases her voice because she was amazing.


Lynnea Moorer is the third artist selected by Kelsea Ballerini for The Comeback Stage. Kelsea says when she sang the second song she could really see the potential. Kelsea says the coaches missed out on Lynnea, but they are going to prove them wrong.


Our final artist of the night is Kymberli Joye from Windsor, CT. She started singing in church and she’s spent time learning and perfecting her craft. She travels with JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise. She would love to work with Kelly Clarkson or Jennifer Hudson. She takes the stage and sings Run To You by Whitney Houston. As soon as the music starts and before she sings Kelly and Jennifer are bickering. Kelly hits her button and turns and she has blocked Jennifer. Jennifer hits her button and sees she is blocked. Jennifer is very upset. Both Kelly and Jennifer are out of their seats. Blake turns at the last second while Kelly is showing Jennifer she’s blocked.


Kelly apologizes to Kymberli and says she had to block Jennifer. Jennifer thought they were friends. Adam and Blake celebrate that Jennifer and Kelly are finally fighting. Blake says he hit his button too, nobody is acknowledging that. Kelly says she’s sorry she took Jennifer out but she knew what she was up against. Jennifer says she thought they were friends, you can’t trust anyone like that. Blake says if Jennifer Hudson is out of the equation, then the next obvious choice is Blake. Jennifer says Blake is a genuine person. Blake says he’s brought artist’s from every genre you can imagine to the final. Blake says he thinks she should be on his team and he would never keep her from working with Jennifer.


Kelly says all joking aside, Kymberli’s voice is insane and she only gets one block the entire season and she used it on Kymberli, that’s how much she loves her. Blake says if you want to win the voice come to Team Blake. Adam says it is time…who do you pick as your coach? Kymberli says…she knew she was going to have a hard time choosing…but since Jennifer is out she picks Kelly.

Week 3 of the blind auditions are kicking off and the artist’s each have 7 artists and Jennifer is the only coach with a block left. The blind auditions continue right now…


Our first artist of the night is Oneup, Adam and Jerome, and they are from Manhattan, NY. They take the stage and perform Could It Be I’m Falling In Love by The Spinners. Jennifer is singing along. Kelly looks at Blake and says it’s cool. Blake is sitting forward in his chair and hits towards the end, followed immediately by Jennifer and Kelly. Oneup is a 3-chair turn.


Jennifer asks Oneup who was singing what and she says they took her to the rafters. Kelly wants to know what kind of music they want to make and they say Motown is timeless. Adam says Blake did do the most amazing work with a duo, The Swonn Brothers. Kelly says they both sound ridiculous. Blake wants to speak and Jennifer goes up to meet them. Blake says he has the most success with duos than any coach. Why not pick a coach with a proven track record with a duo.


Adam says ok, who do you pick as your coach? Oneup discuss it privately and their family wasn’t much help…but they pick…Kelly.


Our next artist is Natalie Brady from Nashville, TN. She takes the stage and sings Barracuda by Heart. Adam is quick to hit his button. Adam gets on his feet and sings along. Jennifer looks deep in thought and Blake is bobbing his head in his chair. Jennifer hits her button towards the end. Natalie is 2-chair turn.


Adam says Natalie should have been a 4-chair turn. Adam says she could easily step in and sing for one of the sisters of Heart. Jennifer says her voice is like an oncoming train. Kelly says Natalie has the range that Ann Wilson has. Blake says shame on Kelly. Blake tries to hit his button again and then says shame on Kelly for not hitting her button. Adam says he’s already thinking of ideas for her. Jennifer says she could sing the clouds out of the heavens.


Blake says first of all…shame on Kelly. Second of all, who do you pick as your coach? Natalie thinks for a moment…then picks Adam.


The next artist to take the stage is Hannah Blaylock and she is from Nimrod, AK. She was in a band and signed to a record label and toured with Rascal Flatts. She takes the stage and has decided to sing Baby, Now That I’ve Found You by Alison Krauss and The Union Gap. The coaches are listening closely. Kelly acted like she wanted to hit at the end and did not. Blake recognized Hannah. Blake says he has an artist on his team that has a similar sound to her and that was not a good reason not to hit. Adam says he almost hit his button while they were arguing, but he missed the window. Kelly says she was waiting for one thing, but she just didn’t hear it.


The next artist is Mike Parker from Gainesville, VA. He had football scholarships, but his grades were not great and he lost it all because he didn’t want to pay attention in class. He takes the stage and sings So Sick by Ne-Yo. The coaches listen closely and Jennifer hits her button right at the very end. Mike begins jumping around on stage. Mike is a 1-chair turn.


Adam says that was the single best reaction he’s ever seen. Blake doesn’t know if he’s ever been happier for someone. Jennifer loves that Mike didn’t give up, the voice was always there. Kelly says she’s never heard someone who’s singing voice is so different from their speaking voice. Adam says that went from almost no turns to one of his favorite moments. Mike is on Team Jennifer.


Our next artist is Joey Green and he’s from Crowley, TX. He is going to perform Baba O’Riley by The Who. Jennifer looks down at Adam. The coaches are all looking at each other trying to decide if they’re going to turn. Jennifer and Blake finally hit their buttons. Joey is a 2-chair turn.


Jennifer says how you do you have Joey up there singing like that and Kelly and Adam didn’t turn around. Jennifer says he may not be in her lane, but that voice deserves to be on this stage. Blake says it’s his lane. Adam says it’s more like his neighborhood, not his lane. Blake says his range and raspiness gives him an edge.


Adam asks Joey who he picks as his coach. Joey thinks about it…he has family from Oklahoma so he picks Blake.


Time to meet our next artist Zaxai from Brooklyn, NY. He’s going to sing Come and Get Your Love by Redbone. Jennifer immediately hits her button. Kelly hits her button and Jennifer has blocked her. The other coaches did not turn and Zaxai is on Team Jennifer and was a 2-chair turn with a block. Jennifer says as soon as she heard his voice she knew she had to block Kelly. She can’t wait to hear more of his voice.


Next we have Erika Zade from Miami, FL. Erika takes the stage to perform New Rules by Dua Lipa. Kelly hits her button. Adam tells Jennifer she’s dope. Erika is a 1-chair turn and is on Team Kelly. Adam says she has an incredible voice, it’s very modern. Jennifer says that was a tough one for her because she loved her voice, it was so unique. Adam says they are a perfect pairing. Kelly says she’s such a fan and she’s glad she’s on her team.


Jarred Matthew if our next artist and he’s from San Diego, CA. He’s going to perform Tired of Being Alone by Al Green. Adam is pretty quick to hit his button. Blake decides to hit his button. Jennifer seems like she’s enjoying the performance but does not hit her button. Jarred is a 2-chair turn.


Blake says the excitement in Jarred’s voice was contagious. He says a fun guy like Jarred and a hilarious guy like himself is a good match. Adam says he liked what he was hearing and he needs help with his falsetto and Adam can help him with that. Adam says if Jarred will teach him astrophysics, he’ll teach him falsetto.


Kelly asks Jarred who he picks as his coach. Jarred says…this is tough…I pick Adam.


Our next artist is Sam Robbins from Portsmouth, NH. He’s going to sing Time In a Bottle by Jim Croce. Adam is looking down the line at the other coaches. He did not get a chair turn. Kelly loved his tone, but she wanted to hear what his upper register sounded like. Adam says he has a gorgeous voice and that’s a really tough one because it’s so mellow. Jennifer was waiting to hear some type of level change and Adam says it needed another gear of intensity. But Sam’s journey isn’t over. Kelsea selected him for The Comeback Stage. She loves that he’s a musician. He plays a guitar and he can write and his voice is gorgeous.


Next we have Colton Smith from Albertville, AL. He’s going to sing the song Alive by Sia. Jennifer is the first to hit her button and she gets on her feet. Colton is a 1-chair turn and he’s on Team Jennifer. Adam says Colton will do great things. Jennifer says he sang I’m Alive, but he gave her life just from his voice. She says she can tell he has a lot of character.


The next artist is ready to take the stage. We have Kayley Hill from Nashville, TN. She sings Gold Dust Woman by Fleetwood Mac. Blake hits his button. Kelly seems to want to hit but she holds back despite Jennifer’s encouragement. Kayley was a 1-chair turn and she’s on Team Blake.


Our final artist of the night is Kirk Jay from Bay Minette, AL. His parents listen to country music and that’s what he performs. He performs Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts. Blake hit his button first. Adam follows a moment later. Jennifer is listening intently. Kelly and Jennifer both hit at the last moment. Kirk is a 4-chair turn.


Adam says Kirk sounded like Cee-Lo and Blake made a country baby. Adam says if for some terrible reason he doesn’t come to his team, he’d like to see Kirk on Blake’s team. Kelly is interested to know what kind of record he wants to make and he says country. Blake gets on his feet. Kelly says his voice has a big soulful presence. Adam says as someone who likes to see Blake suffer, he wants to see Kirk on Blake’s team.


Jennifer asks Kirk why he sang that song and he says it was the first country song he heard. Kelly says she’s country too and Jennifer tells him to follow his heart. Jennifer says who do you pick as your coach? Kirk says he definitely picks Blake.

Jennifer says Cody’s voice is so soulful. Kelly asks why he picked that song and he says it was second nature to sing that song. Kelly says that’s a lot of solitude at the north pole. Kelly says he sounds effortless and that’s what she loved. Cody says he loves to be challenged and Jennifer says she likes to challenge her artists.


Adam says Cody who do you pick as your coach? Cody thinks about it a moment and says I pick…Kelly.


Next we have Jake Wells from Kansas City, MO. He toured with his family to perform gospel music in churches. He steps up to sing When the Stars Go Blue by Tim McGraw. Kelly says she loves this song. Adam looks confused and Blake and Kelly are looking at each other and nodding. Adam hits at the very last second. Jake is a 1-chair turn.

Get ready, America! It all starts right now!


Our First artist of the night is Emily Hough and she’s from Petersburg, IL. She thinks her town will be angry if she doesn’t pick Blake because everyone listens to country. She takes the stage to perform Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell. Adam hits his button pretty quickly. Blake hits his button halfway through the performance followed by Jennifer. Emily is a 3-chair turn.


Blake says Emily has a beautiful, angelic voice and someone like her would stand out on his team. Adam says she had this searing, powerful soulful voice and it’s unbelievable what she does.

Next, we have Josh Davis from Cleveland, TN. He takes the stage and sings Too Good at Goodbyes by Sam Smith. Kelly hits her button. Jennifer hits her button as well. Josh is a 2-chair turn.


Kelly says she has a lot of female power on her team and she needs a man who can hang with them and Josh fits into that niche. Jennifer needs the same type of thing. Blake and Adam make fun of Kelly and Jennifer “fighting” for their artists.


Adam asks Josh who he picks as his coach and he picks…Kelly.    


Next we have Lisa Ramey and she’s from Brooklyn, NY. She’s been in musical theater and performs in a cabaret show. She steps up to the stage and performs Beautiful Trauma by P!nk. Blake and Jennifer keep looking at each other. Lisa does not get a chair turn.


Blake apologizes and he says there were a handful of pitch things and that’s what kept him from hitting his button for Lisa. Kelly thought it was a great song, but maybe not for the blinds. Adam says he’s sure this was amazing to watch. Jennifer says she has a beautiful voice but it’s getting tight on the teams.


The next artist is Katrina Cain from Denton, TX. She performs electro-pop with her husband. She has a keyboard and she’s going to perform Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac.

Adam tells Katrina she should have been a 4-chair turn. Kelly and Adam are so mad. Blake says he’s recorded in Denton, TX and he loves her voice and he’s a big fan and he’d love to be her coach. Jennifer says she would love to be her coach. She thought it was smart for her to switch the song up. Jennifer thinks she might be a better fit as a coach. Blake says he only does country, but he wins The Voice with all different genres.


Kelly says ok Katrina, who do you pick as your coach? Katrina says I pick…Blake.


Our final artist of the blinds is Matt Johnson from Staunton, VA. He’s auditioned for the show every season since season 1. He takes the stage and sings Never Too Much by Luther Vandross. Jennifer is singing along in her chair. Jennifer hits her button as he nears the end. All teams are now full!

Jennifer says it was great to hear someone sing a song by a legend like Luther Vandross. Matt brings his mom out and Jennifer goes up to hug him and meet his mom.


We’re going to check in with Team Kelly and her advisor, Thomas Rhett. Team Kelly’s first pairing is Sandyredd vs Cody Ray Raymond. Kelly put them together because they are the two most powerful people on her team. Kelly has given them the song Cry To Me by Solomon Burke.


Thomas thinks Sandyredd could pull off any song and Cody Ray is so soulful. Kelly says this is going to be remarkable. Thomas says they each have an insane range. Thomas wants to hear the low in Sandyredd’s voice and Kelly doesn’t want Cody Ray to get lost in the song. Thomas tells Cody Ray to get a little gravelly in the song. Kelly is with them at the stage rehearsal and gives some last minute staging tips.


Sandyredd and Cody Ray Raymond take the stage to perform Cry To Me. They get an ovation from all the judges. Adam says he’s excited that he gets to try and pick one of them all up. Adam says they really had a moment up there and they are both masterful singers and that was miraculous. Blake says individually, they are superheroes and together they are Avengers. Blake says there is something vintage about Cody Ray’s voice and Sandyredd has moved the bar higher. Blake would pick Sandyredd.


Jennifer says Sandyredd and Cody Ray were amazing and she doesn’t know what to tell Kelly. Kelly says Cody Ray’s voice is so smooth and gorgeous and Sandyredd is one of the best singers she’s ever heard in her life. Carson says Kelly, who’s the winner of this battle? Kelly says ummm, the winner of this battle is…


Kelly is going to pick the winner of the battle between Sandyredd and Cody Ray. Kelly picks…Cody Ray.


Adam, Jennifer, and Blake all hit their steal buttons for Sandyredd. Adam says he pushed first for her in the blinds and first for her to steal. She has to be one of the best singers they’ve ever heard. He just wants her to remember how he responded to her twice. Blake says he thinks Sandyredd won the battle and he hopes she’ll pick the less obvious coach. Jennifer says Sandyredd is a star and she’s an outstanding talent and she wants to know what she needs from a coach.


Carson says there’s a lot of passion out there. Tell us who is going to be your new coach, Sandyredd? Sandryredd says she loves each of them and she’s sorry but she has to take it home…she’s going with Jennifer.


Next, we’re going to check in with Team Blake and his advisor Keith Urban. Team Blake’s first pairing is Michael Lee vs Joey Green. Blake gave them the song A Thing Called Love by Bonnie Raitt. Keith wants Michael to let go and own what he does. Keith wants to feel like Joey is working for it a little bit. Keith says it’s going to come down to Joey stepping it up a little bit and Michael letting go and owning it.


Michael and Joey take the stage to perform A Thing Called Love. They get an ovation from their coach. Jennifer says Michael’s voice fills the room and Joey has a lot of range. She sensed more presence from Michael and Joey felt more laid back and she’d have to go with Michael. Kelly says Joey’s voice is so laid back he doesn’t have to think about it and Michael’s voice is crazy.


Adam says Joey, Bolo, love it. Adam says they are both so great. He fought super hard for Michael and lost, but Joey has super range and he’s so laid back. Adam says he discovered Joey today. Blake says he thought the battle was great. Blake says it’s heartbreaking he has to make a decision when they’ve been friends for 8 years.


Carson says it’s time to make a decision between Joey and Michael. Blake says he’s going to go with his gut and the winner is…Michael.


Tonight’s artists aren’t the only ones battling it out. Kelsea is pairing her artists for The Comeback Stage. She has paired Madison Cain and Ayanna Joni.


Our final battle pairing is from Team Jennifer and let’s check in with her and Halsey, her advisor. Team Jennifer’s pairing is Colton Smith vs Patrique Fortson. Jennifer has given them the song God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton. Jennnifer says they both have similar tones and ranges, but different specialties.


Halsey tells Patrique and Colton they have to remember the body is a vehicle for the song as well. Jennifer wants them both to have their own moment where they show off. Halsey says Patrique’s voice is beautiful and romantic and soulful and Colton’s is more theatrical and more dramatic. Jennifer says she needs to feel the spirit, that’s what this battle will come down to.


Patrique and Colton take the stage to perform their stripped down version of God Gave Me You. Jennifer throws a shoe after they are done. Kelly wants Blake to do that song like that in his next show. Kelly says they shined even brighter than they did in the blinds. Kelly says Patrique hit some crazy nots. If Kelly had to choose she’d go with Patrique. Adam says Colton is a badass and what he does is very unique and he had some moments of nervousness. Adam says Patrique is so close to being able to wrangle it all with his crazy range.


Blake says he’s really surprised with Colton, he blew him away and he can’t get over how much Patrique sounds like him. Blake says the way Patrique was able to deliver that vocal, with all those herbs and spices, it never hit him as too much. They both did a great job. Jennifer says they sang their face off and then her shoe off. Jennifer says they are both superb vocalists and they are both mind blowing amazing.


Carson says the time has come. Who is the winner of the battle between Colton and Patrique? Jennifer says this is so tough…the winner of this battle is…Patrique.


Colton thanks Jennifer and goes to give her a hug. Blake hits his button. Colton has been stolen. Blake says because that was his record and he knows what level Colton took it to, he had to give respect because he deserved to be there. Colton will now join Team Blake!

Madison chose the song You and I by Lady Gaga. Kelsea advises Madison to bring the full emotion and get into the song. Ayanna performs first and Kelsea says that was amazing and she has chill bumps all over. Then Madison steps up to perform and Kelsea says amazing.
