its another night of THE VOICE and lets get right into it!
Adriana Louise – age 22 year old waitress/bartender from Brooklyn, NY. For her audition she sings Domino by Jessie J. She has really cool control over her voice. I would listen to her if she came out with an album. Cee Lo and Adam are the first to turn around. Christina and then Blake turn around. The second person to receive all 4 chairs and a great way to start off the episode. The coaches are really fighting for her in this episode with Christina making the most passionate plea, also throwing in that Cee Lo is “pervy”. In the end Adriana chooses TEAM CHRISTINA!
Casey Muessigmann – pronounced “MUSICMAN” The singing wrestler. He gets major points for saying 180 degree turnaround. LOL. A lot of people mistakenly say 360 turn around. For his audition he sings Sweet Home Alabama. This dude has a great soulful voice. I think he is one of the best country voices yet. Blake of course is the first to around. Cee Lo also turns around to Blake’s dismay. Blake really enjoyed the “ass-spanking” as well as the southern rock country element. In the end Casey chooses TEAM BLAKE!
Aquile – A biracial kid, 24 years old born in San Diego raised in Wyoming. When he was 19 he was punched in the jaw and had his mouth wired shut until he was healed. Craziness. For his audition he sings Your Song by Elton John, one of my favorite songs. Christina and Adam immediately turn around. Cee Lo turned around towards the end of the song. The guy will be the lady killer of the show methinks.
All of the coaches make their pitch, but Christina took a page from Cee Lo’s book and started in with the flirting saying she would love a “private show.” In the end Aquile goes with TEAM CHRISTINA! Hmm. She has a lot of vocal powerhouses on her team. I hope this isn’t his undoing. Her battles tend to be powerhouse against powerhouse and this dude is awesome but really smooth.
Ryan Fogarty – 28 year old dude from Nashville Tennessee and he is the Tour Production Coordinator for LeeAnn Rimes. Well that isn’t too shabby. That is some star power backing him. For his audition he sings Tomorrow by Chris Young. You can tell he is a little nervous, but he has a nice voice. Unfortunately no coaches turn around for him. Cee Lo said “Wow what a surprise” and Ryan responded quickly with “I love country.” That moment when the coaches find out that it’s a black dude singing country. LOL. Ryan you don’t have to defend yourself!!! It was a good audition. Blake said he was looking for something different than what Chris Young would do but it never happened.
Mackenzie Bourg – out of Lagayette, LA he is 19 year old who contracted a virus that shuts downs organs. Not good obviously. For his audition he sings Pumped Up Kicks, and the guy also plays guitar. He has a really good indie sound. Cee Lo took his time to press his button, but when he did Mackenzie’s dad flipped out. Christina said she enjoyed his performance and was waiting for that “moment” but she didn’t hear it. Blake said he loved the Harry Potter vibe. Christina said he looked like Justin Bieber, but Mackenzie said “let’s go back to Harry Potter.” Another win for TEAM CEE LO! His last name is BOURG. Like the BORG. From Star Trek. Lol
Julio Cesar Castillo – the final artist of the night out of Chicago, who is hoping The Voice can help him break free of his musical roots. He plays in a Mariachi band to support his family. His dad has epilepsy so it’s hard for him to get a job. For his audition he sings LA BAMABA, becoming the first artist to sing a song entirely in Spanish on The Voice. Blake turns around immediately. My favorite part of this show is when the family/friends celebrate backstage when a chair turns around. Cee Lo also turns around, and of course Blake hates this, calling him a “jackass.” In the end Julio goes to TEAM BLAKE!
Alright another cool night of The Voice. I have one more episode to catch up on. Who were some of your favorites of the episode?
