  1. This is The Voice! Last night on The Voice, the Battles began and the coaches were scrambling to protect and strengthen their teams, with the first ever 4-chair Save/Steal Battle. After losing her Battle with Jeremy Rosado, Team Kelly's Jershika Maple was stolen by both John Legend and Ariana Grande. It's time to find out who she picks as her new coach. I pick... John! Both Jeremy and Jershika are going to The Knockouts! Next to battle from Team Blake is Hailey Green and Lana Scott, singing Girl (Maren Morris). Blake says Lana's voice has a country edge. Hailey's voice is wild yet in tune, she's so young and so talented. He tells Hailey there are parts of her voice to lay back on. It's time to battle. Lana's voice is dirty and gruff, while Hailey is more modern and full of grit and attitude. While Lana remains softer and in the groove, Hailey is pushing the envelope of how big her performance can be. John says Hailey's power and tone grabs you, she puts everything into every note. Lana has a lot of subtlety, a songbird quality. Kelly says Lana held her own and Hailey is like a cheetah. Ariana says Lana's voice is pure and sweet with a different energy from Hailey's colorful, rock'n'roll energy. Blake says Hailey is literally a high school football linebacker, and that was actually dialed back. Lana is sweet country. The winner of this battle is Hailey! Get your a$$ back on that stage, Blake yells at Lana, hitting his button for the Save. The only question he had, Blake explains, was who he thought could handle 30 seconds of broken heart better. I was never going to let you go. I'm so excited to have a female country artist on my team this year! Sticking with Team Blake, Tommy Edwards does battle with Libianca, singing Save Your Tears (Weeknd). Blake chooses Libianca for her unique voice and tone. For Team Kelly, Carolina Alonso and Xavier Cornell do battle over telepatia (Kali Uchis), their voices fitting together like fingers in clasped hands. Kelly picks Xavier as the winner. Moving on to Team Ariana, Katherine Ann Mohler is pitted against Vaughn Mogul, singing Dilemma (Nelly, featuring Kelly Rowland). Katherine is working on her Masters in Psychology but her dream has always been in music. During rehearsal, Ariana cannot believe Vaughn is the same sweet singer from the Blinds. Coming from a line of nurses, he's ready for a career in music. Kristin Chenoweth says Katherine is like her, so technically beautiful, it is silk. Ariana tells Katherine to get out of her head and have a moment at the end. They work with Vaughn to put an explanation point on a big note. He listens, Kristen says, and wants to be great. Don't tell him, but he is. At stage rehearsals, Ariana says there's more work to be done. They are so polite to each other, letting each take turns. Try singing to each other more. When you get close, the audience will go crazy. It's time for the Battle and Blake is already jealous of Vaughn's pants. Katherine opens with a twirly vocal, with Vaughn providing the anchor to this conversational song, just a boy and a girl dancing around each other in melodic rhythm. Katherine gets to shine with more acrobatic runs while Vaughn's stability holds the performance together. The only "dilemma" is who Ariana will pick as the winner. John says I wasn't expecting how fun this would be. It's cool for a coach to take artists out of their comfort zone to see if they can handle it, and both had the enthusiasm and connection to each other. Katherine stood out with a compelling voice. Kelly says Katherine's voice cuts through and that's awesome for a live performance setting. Vaughn chose to showcase himself with that higher falsetto harmony, that really stuck out to me. Blake says I could not wait to hear that song for the first time. Did you live under a rock, Kelly asks incredulously? There are a lot of rocks where I live, Blake allows. Vaughn had a warmer tone but I thought Katherine gave it that extra little bit. Ariana has the final decision. Katherine is so precise and technically perfect, this was a stretch and she surprised him. Vaughn stepped into a new persona and what he delivered was incredible. The winner of this battle is... Katherine Ann! The final battle of the night comes from Team John, with Samara Brown and BrittanyBree, singing Something He Can Feel (Aretha Franklin). It's BrittanyBree's first time performing secular music. They have the chops and soul they need, John says, to pull this off. Samara relates the lyrics to her own life. John tells Samara to not deviate too much from the familiar - it's a matter of balance. Camila Cabello advises her to fight the urge to change everything about the song to make it hers - if you do too much, it's hard to hear. Samara has wanted to be where her sister Amanda Brown was (Season 3, Team Cee Lo, Stolen by Adam Levine in The Battles, eliminated in the Top 6). John tells BrittanyBree to think about the lyric, who she's singing to and how she wants them to feel. That's how Aretha did it, she took who she was and applied it to pop music. Camila says the past and present are not two separate things, bring the church and soul into the song. Camila says BrittanyBree's voice makes her feel things she hasn't felt in a long time. Samara Brown's tone, how she moves her body, this could be the best Battle of the night. Camila suggests creating some tension by having a riff battle between the two. It will be a soulful, sultry battle and we'll see who does the song justice. Let the Battle begin! As the opening notes ring out, both artists turn around and let their voices shine, confident and full of character. BrittanyBree sounds most like the Queen of Soul but Samara Brown holds her own note for note, providing a delicious counter-balance and a powerhouse performance in her own right. The question is whether you like your performances big or large, they both delivered something the audience could feel. Kelly says your voices are insane. BrittanyBree, you have rock'n'roll soul. I don't care about John, because one of you is going to be available to steal. Blake says I was blown away - you both stepped up and owned the moment and stage. Ariana says your tones are different but complimentary. Your stage presence, your gorgeous looks, I can't help John. John says I wanted you to be your absolute best so either I could save you or one of these other coaches would steal you. Samara, I coached you to stay true somewhat to what the songwriter wrote and you did it exactly the way it needed to be. BrittanyBree, that stank on your voice hits me right in the heart, and you to delivered with that passion, personality and charisma. John, the time has come. Who is the winner of this Battle? The winner of this Battle, John drags out, is... BrittanyBree! Every note that came out of her mouth was perfect, John allows, but he could have gone either way. Immediately, Kelly, John and Ariana all press their buttons for a Steal, Save and Steal, respectively. Come back home, John says. Did you sense his hesitation, Kelly points out. He did hesitate, Blake piles on. You knew exactly what I was planning to do, John claims. Ariana says I adore you, I have one steal and I said backstage if I was going to use it on anyone, I'd use it on you. That's the truth. He did hesitate, Blake reminds Samara of John. Kelly says you are such a gifted vocalist, you are a blessing to the show. If you stay with your coach or come to the right team, you would look so cute in my turquoise jacket. John says I truly loved working with you, and every once in a while we put 2 people together that we never should have put together. You two are some of the best talent in the entire competition and I would feel so fortunate to continue coaching you. The decision is yours, Carson tells Samara (I pressed my button first, Kelly slips in). Who do you choose as your coach? Kelly calls her over to her team. Come on home, John leads. Ariana sits their quietly, not fighting at all. This is impossible, Samara Brown says, thank you to all of you. I'm gonna choose John! Over the first two nights of Battles, Team Kelly loses Jershika Maple to Team John, saves Kinsey Rose and Carolina Alonso is eliminated. Girl Named Tom, Jeremy Rosado and Xavier Cornell win their Battles and advance to the Knocknouts. Kelly has used her Save but still has a Steal. Team John loses KJ Jennings, steals Jershika Maple and saves Samara Brown. BrittanyBree and Samuel Harness both win their Battles and advance to the Knockouts. John has used both his Save and his Steal. Team Ariana loses Vaughn Mogule and Chavon Rodgers, and saves Bella DeNapoli. Katie Rae, David Vogel and Katherine Ann Mohler all win their Battles and advance to the Knockouts. Ariana has used her Save but still has her Steal. Team Blake loses Tommy Edwards and The Joy Reunion and saves Lana Scott. Hailey Green, Libianca and Peedy Chavis all win their Battles and advance to the Knockouts. Blake has used his Save but still has his Steal.

  3. This is The Voice! Let's get to the last of the Blind Auditions, starting with wedding singer Aaron Hines, a John Legend fan performing Heartbreak Anniversary (Giveon). He has a soft and creamy voice, with a slight sandpapery texture. He gets all 4 chairs to turn. John says he sounded like he knew what he was doing. Aaron sings a bit of All Of Me for John. Kelly loves his voice, very moving, sincere and intimate, but with big notes as well. I've navigated a comp before and am your Magellan for the show. Ariana says your tone stopped me in my tracks, runs were super clean. Blake says if you caught Season 20, I wasn't the obvious choice for Cam either but it worked out. I'm worried about you with these other three. Kelly blew off Texas, John talks too loud... And Ariana lacks confidence, Blake concludes. Ariana pulls out her vocal lunch box. Who you going to pick, John asks? I pick, Aaron says... Kelly! OMG, she screams! Each coach now has only one spot left. Will it be filled by the trio KCK3? Singing No Tears Left To Cry (Ariana Grande), the 3-part harmony surprises her. They're really good she says, before pushing her button, turns around and starts dancing. The other coaches concede the artist. This is the kindest thing y'all have ever done for me! KCK3 are a sister trio (Kyla, Chelsea, Kaitlynn) from Brandon, MS. They've been singing together since forever, and are 3rd generation singers. Ariana says she didn't even realize it was her song at first, she was taken by the harmony. You are the last slot on my team! Kelly says obviously Ariana, but also she already has a group. John says he wanted to leave their lane open. Blake already has a trio. Ariana grabs a mic, steps in onto the stage and sings in long, melodic notes, My Team Is Full! She then takes stands in front of Blake and drops the mic. The next artist is is Tommy Edwards from Big Fork, MT. A professional performer with his father, he's a family man himself, singing Drops of Jupiter (Train). His voice emotes honesty and energy. Blake says he likes that and follows it up with a button push. Kelly looks at Blake as if to press her button and he waives her off. John says I'll do it and pushes his button. No! exclaims Blake. Kelly says she was looking for more range. Blake said he heard Black Crows, a straight up rock guy lost in the music. Ariana says she loved his interpretation of the song. But I'm not going to pick as a side. John says you know how to make your presence felt, power, range, electricity. Kelly asks, who do you pick as your coach? Come on, Tommy Boy, Blake says. I pick Blake, Tommy says. Tommy Rocks, Blake brags before the Blake Cam. His team is full of every genre and he can't wait to get to work with his artists. My team is Full! Shadale is from Douglassville, GA who has been involved in music all her life, and traveled around the world with a gospel group. A single mom, she's singing That's What I Like (Bruno Mars). Kelly turns around after her first note and John soon follows. I turned first, Kelly makes sure John knows, even as Shadale continues blowing the roof off with her no-longer-blind audition. Blake says she would behis extra person if his team was not full. Ariana too - it should have been a 4-chair turn Ariana says you are an amazing vocal technician, sustaining gorgeous pure, vibrato notes. John says you put on a show too and it was so fun. Kelly says I was screaming, because Jesus told me, I was watching Bruno & Beyonce, sass and whit. Who do you pick as your coach? Without hesitation, Shadale says I pick John Legend! John takes to the stage to announce his team is full! Be brings back a golden oldy and sings the Welcome To Team Legend. You made your choice, now let's go win The Voice, welcome to Team Legend! Team Legend is full! Joe McGuinness is a 43yr old stop motion animator who creates short films frame by frame, as well as playing a lot of instruments (except bagpipes). He started his first band at 15 and dropped out of HS to hit the road. Singing Midnight Rider (The Allman Brothers Band), his voice is infused with a southern rock vibe, but he doesn't capture Kelly's interest. She says she loves a soulful rock voice but he was on 11 all the time. John says we couldn't hear the finer points of his voice. Parker McKay's whole life has centered on music. She moved to Nashville to pursue a career in country but realized her heart lay in pop. Her supportive mom's fire went out with dementia except when she sang. She passed but not before learning Parker would be on The Voice. Singing Slow Hands (Nial Horan), Parker's voice is full of enthusiasm and attitude. OK, says John. Kelly is in no hurry, soaking in the performance. When Parker throws in a little growl heading into the chorus, Kelly presses her button to claim her prize. She's thrilled that Kelly was her only option. John says how she soared on the high notes was really compelling. Kelly says I'm the obvious team for you. Kelly stands on the stage and yells out, My Team Is Full! She is joined by the other three coaches in celebration. The Blind Auditions are over! Let's take a look at the teams heading into The Battles! For Team Kelly, Girl Named Tom, Holly Forbes, Kinsey Rose, The Cunningham Sisters, Carolina Alonso, Jershika Maple, Gymani, Xavier Cornell, Jeremy Rosado & Wyatt Michael are joined by Aaron Hines and Parker McKay. For Team John, Jonathan Mouton, Keilah Grace, BrittanyBree, Jack Rogan, Samara Brown, Samuel Harness, Janora Brown, Joshua Vacanti, KJ Jennings, Paris Winningham & Sabrina Dias are joined by Shadale. For Team Ariana, Katie Rae, Raquel Trinidad, Sophia Bromberg, Katherine Ann Mohler, Halley Mia, Vaughn Mugol, David Vogel, Chavon Rodgers, Bella DeNapoli, Jim & Sasha Allen & Ryleigh Plank are joined by KCK3. For Team Blake, Peedy Chavis, Carson Peters, Libianca, Wendy Moten, Kaitlyn Velez, Lana Scott, Berritt Haynes, Hailey Green, Clint Sherman, The Joy Reunion & Manny Keith are joined by Tommy Edwards.
  4. This is The Voice! The Blind Auditions continue with 20yr old Ryleigh Plank, singing Anyone (Demi Lovato). Kelly is the first to turn around, followed by Ariana at the chorus. She has a lot of emotional honesty in her 2-chair performance. Being a singer/songwriter has been her dream since she was 6, though life's experiences led her to experiencing depression and anxiety. Since leaving HS, she has discovered who she is. Ariana says she was brought to tears, her vibrato was wide and beautiful, very moving. John says it was a challenging song and she had a few execution issues, but that's what coaching is for. Blake asks if Kelly has a chance? Kelly will always have a chance, Ryleigh says, I love her. Blake says these are the two coaches you should have. Who do you want? Wait a second, Kelly stammers, first, you look rad as heck. Your voice is incredible. And I have navigated (cheers) the competition. The obvious choice is Florida, but this jacket would look good on you. Ariana pulls out her vocal lunch box. Who do you pick as your coach, John asks? I think I am going to have to go with... Ariana! I'm sorry, Kelly! Blake tells Kelly her problem is she's offering an artist from Florida a coat. Next to navigate The Voice stage is Jershika Maple from Killen, TX, a security guard by day for a tech company. She is power with a wand, but singing is her passion. Inspired by Rose Short, the Season 17 finalist has become a mentor. Jershika is singing Can You Stand The Rain (New Edition), with a beautiful intro run, a deep, creamy lower vocal, and hints of strong power that she finally lets loose, triggering Kelly and John to look at each other and press their buttons. Kelly starts to talk and Ariana interrupts to say her low tones were so beautiful, she loves every part of her voice. John says she was ready for the moment, a powerful, electric performance, the challenging high notes. Kelly says you're so light and that smile. At this point it's about picking songs, I can help you maneuver through this competition. (she didn't say it, Blake whispers to Ariana). She shows Jershika the turquoise team jacket and John pulls out his boxing robe & sings. Jershika picks Team Kelly! We have a steal, Blake jokes! The next artist is Manny Keith, a huge Grande fan. His dad is a musician and his mom a dancer, but he was shy as a kid. He started dancing in middle school instead of sports, & discovered his passion for singing. His mom died of cancer but is still supporting him. Singing Break My Heart (Dua Lipa), his vocal is light and energetic, soft and confident. Ariana tells Blake he's good so Blake turns his chair. He has a fun stage presence that entertains the audience but does not turn any more coaches so he's stuck with Blake. John says Manny's voice is warm and inviting. Ariana starts to speek and Manny admits to being the biggest Ariana Grande fan. His tone reminded her of JC from Nsync (I love JC, Blake claims). You don't who that is, Kelly accuses. I hope to steal you, Ariana says. Blake says you say you're the biggest Ariana fan. Blake turns around to an audience member who earlier had claimed to be the biggest Ariana fan and asks, are you going to just take this? Blake says he thought Ariana would challenge him. You have a great singer. Welcome! Blake tells Manny to go over and say hi to Ariana. He can't believe his first hug after Covid is Ariana Grande! Austin Perario was in a boy band as a teen signed to a label, but despite a couple singles and videos, it never went anywhere and it hurt his self-confidence. He is looking for a coach that will help him learn how to struggle with confidence. Singing This Town (Niall Horan), Austin has a soft, boyish voice. He wins over the audience but the coaches aren't biting. He gives a disappointment sigh. Ariana says she could hear the nerves but maybe a different song would have showcased his voice better. John suggests raising the key - you can hear the nerves down where he was signing. Kelly says he has great tone, he could picture the beautiful scene behind him. Boogie Boarding KJ Jennings loves wake-surfing, dirt biking and bee-keeping, all of which has prepared her for the stage. Her mom is a music theater performer and she studied music in college. She is singing Put Your records On (Corinne Bailey Rae). Boogie Boarding KJ Jennings loves wake-surfing, dirt biking and bee-keeping, all of which has prepared her for the stage. Her mom is a music theater performer and she studied music in college. She is singing Put Your records On (Corinne Bailey Rae). Blake says you have a cool voice, very floaty, the run in the first half made us go woah. Once you get past the nerves, you'll be killer. Ariana loves her tone and choices. John says you were so charming and inviting, an adventurous singer, bringing Jazz to pop. You bring light and energy to the stage, John continues. Kelly asks, who do you pick as your coach? I would love to pick Team John! Some more artists that earned single-chair turns: John chose Sabrina Dias from Brazil, who sang Garota De Panema (Girl from Nowhere, Antonio Carlos Jobin), and Kelly turned for 17yr old Xavier Cornell, who sang Teenage Dream (Katy Perry). Libianca moved from St. Paul, MN to Cameroon when she was 4 yrs old. They had nothing she was familiar with from her short life in America but she became exposed to African music. She returned to America at age 13 but her social skills didn't fit in. So she started singing and people took notice. Singing Good Days (SZA), Libianca has an easy flowing voice, that flows like velvet and Ariana turns around and lets out a squeal. Blake presses his button for this smooth vocalist. Kelly says her runs down low was so warm. John says the song made it tough to hear every aspect of her voice. Ariana says that song is so unique and she did a beautiful job making it her own, your sat in your low range but you sprang into your higher range at the end. Blake says I am obviously the coach for you. Why, Libianca asks? Let me think about that, he says. Blake says there's nothing Ariana can't sing - she picks her performance. You are just like her, so much control and volume, and my job is to help you be the best you can. Libianca says that somebody said something that gave her a sign, and I asked god to give me a sign. OK. So Blake, I'm going to go with you! Ariana is crushed, and Blake is gloating. Kelly is stunned. God was speaking through our Cowboy, John says. Libianca tells Carson that what Blake said is that his job is to help her become the best at what she does, and he's going to help her do her thing. John jokes that god came down with tablets and said, pick Blake! Baseball was always Jared Brasher's true love and he planned for a career in the majors. He was drafted by the Washington Nationals but released 2 years later and had to find a new way to make a living. But through it all, singing was a passion he never pursued. He has never performed live before, but he's singing Drunk On Your Love (Brett Eldredge). He has a deep country voice, singing in a mid octave. Blake encourages Ariana to push. He waivers on some of the stretched out notes and is disappointed when no one turns. Blake says you have a great country voice but you never felt comfortable, you couldn't control it. Kelly says you can't teach confidence like you have. Ariana says you have a special tone but there was a little control missing, but you knocked it out of the park. John tells him to commit to his music the way he committed to Baseball. Next up is 18yr old Sophia Bromberg. She's learned a lot in her high school music program but she has struggled with believing in herself. She turned to music during her recovery and has grown a lot, now hoping to inspire others who are struggling to open up to a friend. Singing Heather (Conan Gray), Sophia offers a light, nuanced vocal w/a lot of movement on her voice and she hits one run triggering immediate turns from Ariana, John and Kelly. Wow, Kelly says. Sophia hits a high run and Ariana drops an air mike. Then she goes falsetto. Ariana says there are so many people in your throat box, beautiful, interesting and well oiled. Color and entertaining plus whistle notes. John says you have all these things you can and my job is to help you figure out how to use it to connect and tell a story. You paint with your vocal chords, Kelly tells Sophia. Ariana says my team is a canvas, so you can paint your way over here. Blake says I didn't press my button to protect someone already on my team, but who are you going to pick as your coach? Sophia says I would be lucky to work with any of you but the coach that I pick is... Ariana! Blake tells Ariana that watching her win a 3-Chair turn is like watching one of his kids graduate. You are so charming and infantalizing at the same time, she replies. What does that mean, Blake asks? It means you talk to me like a child. Oh, I do that, Blake agrees. He and his brother started a rock band when they were kids but that's not the musical direction this artist ended up going in. Singing Mack The Knife (Bobby Darin), he's rat pack from head to toe. Ariana & Kelly love it and they both press their buttons for Wyatt Michel. The more Wyatt listened to Jazz and big band, the more he realized playing in grungy dive bars was not for him. Sinatra was the original holder of the nickname, The Voice. Blake says he was looking for a little more personality and one of these girls will bring it out. John says it was a little too spoken and it wasn't clear what your singing voice was like. Ariana says you have a time capsule in your throat, transporting me to another time, joyous and warm. We can navigate where you want to go together. Kelly says your voice is a timeless classic and nobody on the show will sound like you, plus we would sound amazing singing a Frank & Nancy duet in the Finale. John asks, who do you pick as your coach? My GF is a huge fan of Ariana but I have to go with my gut and pick Kelly! Performing makes 20yr old Alexandra Stojack happy. In HS, she learned hear brain was too big for her skull and that threatened her life. She had brain surgery to enlarge her skull and she was able to find a new voice singing. Performing The Way I Am (Ingrid Michaelson), Alexandra delivers a suave, coffee shop vibe that excites the audience but she's a bit pitchy and the judges don't appear to be interested, leaving their chairs unturned. Kelly says she has a cool sound and vibe but it was a bit pitchy. Ariana says the yodeling thing was technically impressive but nerves got in your way. John says come back, you can do it. The final Blind Audition tonight is BrittanyBree who started singing in church at age 5. Her life changed after having 2 daughters and now picks boxes on an assembly line and a second job as assistant adjuster. But she's still dedicated to the church and singing. Performing outside of church for the first time, BrittanyBree sings Call Out My Name (The Weeknd) with soul, passion and a juicy vocal. She hits the chorus and immediately Ariana and John turn around. Another power note turns Kelly. Blake throws in for a 4-chair turn! Ariana starts out babbling. You are unbelievable, your tone, fullness, soul, texture, every choice you made added emotional value. John says your voice just grabbed us, your energy flows from the stage. I know what it's like to step out of the church for the first time. You are such a great storyteller, Kelly starts. I was going to say that, Ariana interjects. Yeah, Kelly says without missing a beat, but I did. Blake nearly chokes on his "juice". Kelly says I was already in and just listening when you hit that chorus. OMG! Kelly continues rapidly, I've on the show before and know how to navigate (Ariana and Blake toast each other), and if your voice isn't in the finale, something's wrong. I'm worried about you, Blake says, you could really screw up - you need more stability than Kelly. No one is more the poster child of stability than Blake Shelton, Ariana teases. Kelly abandoned her home state, Blake says, John probably hasn't been in a church in 30+ years, walked away from it. Ariana could be the greatest coach ever seen on The Voice. Or, Blake continues for BrittanyBree, she could be the worst we've ever seen. In fact, I'm leaning... I on the other hand have been here forever and would be honored to be your coach. BrittanyBree says this is so hard, John! Team Kelly has 2 spots left, and includes Girl Named Tom, Holly Forbes, Kinsey Rose, The Cunningham Sisters, Carolina Alonso, Jershika Maple, Gymani, Xavier Cornell, Jeremy Rosado & Wyatt Michael. Team John has only 1 spot left, and includes Jonathan Mouton, Keilah Grace, BrittanyBree, Jack Rogan, Samara Brown, Samuel Harness, Janora Brown, Joshua Vacanti, KJ Jennings, Paris Winningham & Sabrina Dias. Team Ariana has only 1 spot left, and includes Katie Rae, Raquel Trinidad, Sophia Bromberg, Katherine Ann Mohler, Halley Mia, Vaughn Mugol, David Vogel, Chavon Rodgers, Bella DeNapoli, Jim & Sasha Allen & Ryleigh Plank. Team Blake has only 1 spot left, and includes Peedy Chavis, Carson Peters, Libianca, Wendy Moten, Kaitlyn Velez, Lana Scott, Berritt Haynes, Hailey Green, Clint Sherman, The Joy Reunion & Manny Keith. The final 5 spots will be filled during Tuesday's final Blind Auditions, so be sure to join Morty's TV as the coaches select the last of the Top 48 artists!
  5. You may have noticed, it didn't pan out this season. Despite weekly requests, BB fans were not in a Meme-generating mood this season and we received only one entry over 12 weeks. For that reason, I pulled the plug on the contest. I do want to thank Melynda Hartnett Baker from the Morty's TV group on Facebook for her one entry. I'll have to think hard whether I want to bring the contest back for next summer. If you have any thoughts as to why it did not work out this season, please feel free to share them with me at contact.mortystv@gmail.com. Fuskie Who always thought memes were a fun, creative and accessible way for any BB fan to share their thoughts and offer commentary on what turned out to be an extraordinary season...

If Azah could have pulled out Final HoH Part III and had chosen Derek F, she could have scored enough Morty's TV Bucks to win, since she didn't, I can say... Congratulations to BeastModeEMT with the Xavier HG Token and a final balance of $9,581! You win the Grand Prize of a T-Shirt from Morty's TV! Congratulations also to Dade, who also selected her hometown hero Xavier as her HG Token. She never wavered in her Day 1 selected HG Token and actually earned the most Morty's TV Bucks ($11,000), but as a volunteer for Morty's TV, she was ineligible to win the Grand Prize. Runner up is Kelso, who just eeked out 2nd place from Jpef by just $50 in Morty's TV Bucks. Congratulations also to titanjo and Brittleeg2387 for ending the game without going Bankrupt! And thank you to everyone who played in the Morty's TV Big Brother Season 23 Monopoly Game! Tell your friends and join us for the next round of Morty's TV Big Brother Monopoly!
  7. 9:20am BBT X tells DF it's the last day in the BB House. We may never set foot in this house again. DF says he should take the train back to Philly (he hates flying). X says he'd never make it - the trip is 4 days! DF says he could watch the whole season then. 9:26am BBT On the LR couch, DF can't wait to find out everyone's real ages and jobs. X is in the KT. Azah is alone on the Big Blue Couch in the YBR. 9:38am BBT Azah comes into the KT and asks X to time her speech as she delivers it silently to herself. She asks him to count more quietly (she can't hear herself think). 9:41am BBT DF and X are playing cards at the DT while Azah has returned to the BBC in the YBR to read her HoH letter. 9:45am BBT After FotH, DF and X say goodbye to Live Feeders. Azah is still in the YBR in quiet thought. DF says he has to get used to wearing a mask again and covering his mouth/nose when he coughs/sneezes (that should be standard behavior anyway). 9:53am BBT Azah joins X/DF at the DT. I'm going to miss you guys, she says to Live Feeders, knowing every single detail of my life and accidentally seeing her boobs. She immediately regrets saying that. X wonders if BB will tell them when feeds shut off. 10am BBT, DF says. 9:59am BBT X challenges the KT corner camera. DF says it's being aggressive. DF and X continue playing cards while Azah watches. It is symbolic of much of the Live Feed experience, watching HG doing absolutely nothing (with apologies to Seinfeld). 10:00am Big Brother Season 23 Live Feeds are over. On behalf of the entire LFU/TFU team at Morty's TV, thank you for trusting Morty's TV to be your source of Live Feed updates. Join us tonight live in the Morty's TV Fan Forums & Chat for Survivor & the live BB23 Finale!
  8. 11:03pm BBT The card game has broken up. Azah is in the YBR. DF is sitting in the left F2 chair as if imagining what it might feel like). The HG look to be winding things down for the night.
  9. 9:30pm BBT DF/X are playing cards at the DT while Azah watches. DF thinks he looks like a mess like he's in an insane asylum (he's certainly driving live feeders crazy). 10:38pm BBT X takes a break to visit the WC. DF waits for him to return, shuffling the cards. Azah has been painting her nails while the boys play cards. 11:00pm BBT It's the last night in the BB House and DF/X are playing cards while Azah watches. It hasn't been announced, but the feeds will likely come to an end late morning BBT with a thank you watching and sign-off by the Final 3.
  10. This is The Voice! Last night, Holly Forbes received a 4-chair turn, but Ariana used her Block on John. Who will she choose as her coach? Holly grew up listening to Kelly Clarkson. She chooses Team Kelly! And Ariana wasted her Block. Rookie move. Next to audition is Bella DeNapoli from a large, loud Italian family in Long Island, NY. The family performs together on weekends, but this is her chance to prove she can stand out on her own. She is singing a slowed down acoustic version of Damage (Danity Kane). Blake points to Ariana and says that's you, but nobody is pulsing her button. Then all of a sudden, John, Kelly and Ariana all turn their chairs at the same time. Bella can't believe it. John says it was such a fun song choice. Ariana loved the arrangement. Kelly tells Bella she thought she was at her show, her voice was fluid and emotional, a lot of emotion. Ariana says you can do a lot of different things with your voice - you started out one way and ended up something else. And your outfit matches my gift. Blake says he didn't turn around because she's in Ariana's lane. Who do you pick as your coach? Holy Cannoli, she says, I have to go with Ariana! 23yr old David Vogel has never done anything like this. Singing Breathin' (Ariana Grande), he's going to flip it into a rock song. She is his dream coach. It takes a second for her to recognize the song but his light, pop masculine vocal has all the coaches moving. Ariana has her hands hovering over the buzzer, then right at the end, she turns her chair around. She thought it was a really unique take. His life has been around music since he first started playing drums at age 9, as a musician, singer and producer. Kelly said it took her a minute to recognize the song, it was so cool. Ariana loves his tone and style. She waited to the last minute to keep the others from turning around to challenge her. Just saying she's on The Voice is crazy to Janora Brown, who sings with her mom at home, at church, to get attention from her older sister, who struggles with Lupus. Her mom donated a Kidney when she ws a teenager, but it didn't take and she's been on dialysis for 6yrs. Singing Angel Of Mine (Eternal), Kelly and John don't wait to turn around as Janora's voice rings out, soft but powerful, growing in intensity and beauty. John says her version was so cool, they both turned when she hit that tight run, then she kit those high notes. Kelly says it takes a lot of control to do those runs, and she immediately starts coaching. John wants to set up a blueprint that impresses at every moment. Blake says I'd recognize your voice on the radio any time. Janora picks John! 21yr old Kaitlyn Velez grew up watching the show, it's an out of body experience being here. She's been writing songs for 7 years as an expression for her insecurities growing up Latina in a white community. She has six songs on Spotify for Artists that been successful. Singing Please Don't Go (Mike Posner), she's giving it authentically her with a moody, acoustic feel. The song feels a little tentative and unsure but that is by design. John likes it and Blake is intrigued and they both turn their chairs. John thought her vibrato was distinct but she needs to open up a little more. That's what coaching is for. Kelly liked her tone and was waiting for her to open up. Ariana says her voice has lots of personality. Blake says I could tell you're a songwriter comfortable with how you express yourself. John says she has an interesting perspective and could carve her own niche. Who do you want to carve a niche with? Kaitlyn says she's shocked this person turned but grateful. Kaitlyn chooses to join Team Blake! Though she is going to need a step stool to be able to talk to him. Blake also turned his chair for 19yr old Berritt Hanes, who sang Mercy (Brett Young). It was a literally a dream come true - he was granted a Make-A-Wish and he wished to be in the audience for The Voice, but it wasn't granted due to COVID. Then his mom sent in a tape. Clint Sherman sang Brown Eyed Girl (Van Morrison) and drew Blake's chair turn. He sang it for the brown-eyed girl to whom he just became engaged. Blake says he has a cool vibe and cool voice. Next to audition is 22yr old Kayla Lilly who gestated to Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston. She went to a low income boarding school and took advantage of all the musical opportunities. Now she will be the first from her family to graduate college at Temple University. Singing Never Enough (The Greatest Showman), her voice is immediately impactful, declaring I have arrived, though she's a little pitchy, and none of the judges turn. Almost there, Kelly says. Ariana says her voice needs to be more consistent. John says it felt you weren't on sure footing until she started soaring on the high notes. Kelly says you sounded confident but maybe if she took a chance on the song it might be more believable. She begs Kayla to come back. John says she was in her head too much. Marie (14) and Macie (15) are the Cunningham Sisters from Hamilton, OH. They are pop gospel artists who sing together in the church. Their mom is a white redhead and their dad is an albino Black man. They look neither white nor Black and that led to bullying in school. Dad encouraged them to own who they are. They are singing Never Alone (Tori Kelly) because no matter what, they have each other. Marie starts with a low vocal, but it's Marie's mid-octave tone that gets the coaches attention while Dad dances in the wings. They start delivering some youthful power vocals, energetic and fun, and John and Kelly both turn their chairs. Ariana says your tones are both very distinct. Kelly says we get it, you're from Ohio, John's from Ohio. Kelly says she started singing in church. John too. John says all the other teams have duos or trios. You would be my first. Kelly says you may have a lot in common with John, but you'll learn new stuff with me. She says you could have careers as individuals but you need to learn how to blend as a duo. Ariana asks Macie & Marie, who do you pick as your coach? Dad doesn't know what they'll do. They say in unison, we pick Kelly! Kelly can't believe it. OMG, what? Kelly takes over Blake's Win Camera to introduce the Cunningham Sisters. After 40 Blind Auditions, here's how the teams shape up. Team Kelly has Girl Named Tom, Holly Forbes, Kinsey Rose, Carolina Alonso, Gymani, Jeremy Rosado and the Cunningham Sisters. She has six spots sill open. Team John has Jonathan Mouton, Keliah Grace, Jack Rogan, Samara Brown, Samuel Harness, Janora Brown, Josh Vacanti and Paris Winningham. He has 4 spots still open. Team Ariana has Katie Rae, Raquel Trinidad, Katherine Ann Mohler, Hailey Mia, Vaughn Mugol, David Vogel, Chavon Rodgers, Bella DeNapoli and Jim & Sasha Allen. She has 3 spots still open. Team Blake consists of Peedy Chavis, Carson Peters, Wendy Moten, Kaitlyn Velez, Lana Scott, Berritt Haynes, Hailey Green, Clint Sherman and The Joy Reunion. He has 3 spots open.
  11. 11:37pm BBT X lays the blanket over Azah and crawls into his bed in the YBR. Azah is already in bed and DF is playing solitaire in bed. General convo between X and DF. 11:40pm BBT The F3 are in the YBR discussing who in the JH will be upset and who will see their games. They expect Ky came into the JH gun blazing. They say Ky wasn't playing Big Brother.
  12. 7:15pm BBT After the show, Azah wants to go to CVS and just walk up & down the aisles. DF wants to use his credit card. He's looking forward to wearing a mask to just going out, playing video games, driving. He needs to get a passport so he can go to Canada for his bday. 7:20pm BBT DF hopes his roommates clean the house before he gets home (hey guys, just in case you're reading @mortystv on Facebook or Twitter!). First thing they have to do is pay their October rents. 7:25pm BBT Azah loves the BB oven but they didn't have all the utensils she needed to cook, so she had to find other ways. DF says she McGyvered the meals. Who is McGyver, she asks? (Oh, Azah, the man can do incredible things with a pocket knife and roll of duct tape). 7:50pm BBT Azah/DF/X are all together and think everyone in the JH is tired and wants the Finale to come as much as they do. DF says he's over it and he's still in the House. There's to much downtime. He doesn't believe it when Azah/X tell him other seasons have been longer. 7:55pm BBT The F3 talk about not having seen rain in 3 mo (they should head down to San Diego - the 1stt weather delayed baseball game since 2017). X wants to go to TJ Maxx after the show. Azah wants to check her CVS Extra Bucks. X decides to go to Target instead. 8:00pm BBT DF is eager to connect with people again. This is the longest he's ever been cut off from other people. X hasn't had any problem being off the grid, he just misses movies. Azah repeats DF's plan to watch the season on the flight home (he might get 2 weeks in). 8:10pm BBT DF thinks he must have been bleeped out a lot given what his mother said about his cussing (Mother knows best). X and DF joke that Azah must be JCM's most and least favorite HG because of how she messes up on live comps. X 11:00pm BBT DF is brushing his teeth, preparing for bed. X hasn't left Azah's side all night long (or is it the other way around). For much of the day, DF has been on his own. 11:15pm BBT DF is playing solitaire in bed in the YBR while X/Azah continue cuddling under Azah's yellow blanket on the LR couch. 11:30pm Azah has crawled into her bed in the YBR where DF continues playing Solitaire. X gets up from the LR Couch as well. He takes out his contacts and puts on some lotion in the SGBR then grabs Azah's blanket, makes a trip to the WA/WC, then joins Azah/DF in the YBR.
  13. 8:50pm BBT Azah explains that Tiff and Ky were not objective like her. She warned Ky that evicting Tiff at F6 would not be good for him but he thought it would buy him support from DF and X, rather than leave her in so she could be a bigger target before him. 8:53pm BBT X disagrees & thinks Tiff would have targeted Ky before X as well. There's a bottle of wine in the SR (they call it Josh) & X runs to get it. Azah thinks Tiff would have tried to get Ky to go after X & X to go after Ky. DF is listening but not joining the convo. 8:58pm BBT X says everyone in the group hated Ky; he was always going to go as soon as he stopped winning comps. Azah says Tiff was still trying to protect him. X disagrees. He & Azah have different views of how the game unfolded and keeps explaining until Azah agrees.
  14. 8:22pm BBT X is out of the DR. DF has been sitting in the nom chair and Azah is laying on the LR couch under her blanket. Azah is hungry and gets a burger out of the freezer. There are 4 left and X says they should eat up all of them. 8:25pm BBT Azah is animated now, her mouth salty and she's bouncing around the KT. She asks X if he wants cheese on his burger (he does). DF thanks her. The burgers were already cooked, so she heats them up in the microwave, melting some American Cheese. X gets the buns. 8:30pm BBT X and Azah are eating their burgers in the LR while DF just sits and looks miserable. X talks about how nice it is without Ky in the house. He imagines what excuses Ky is making to the Jury. Azah says no intellectual discussions either. 8:35pm BBT X says that they have survived so much this season - DF survived Tiff, Azah survived Ky, and X survived both. They deserve alcohol. X says doing things against the group was problematic to him. Tiff and Ky forced the group (meaning X) to shift the plan. 8:40pm The F3 still haven't been able to get over Ky, again talking about his faults and mistakes. It's the same convo they've had a dozen times and will have a dozen more, dissecting Ky's game and justifying their endgame. 8:45pm BBT X says Paul lost twice because he didn't own his game. We was nice in his GB messages but didn't own up to how he played the game. You can't be Mr. Nice Guy and be a gamer, Azah says. You can, X says, but you have to own it. Dr. Will owned it. Ky never owned it.
  15. 3:22pm BBT X comes into the CBR and DF says he couldn't even win against one perspon. If Azah wins the third part... Azah won Final HoH Comp Part II!
