The Voice S03 Episode 06
Here’s where we stand so far on the teams: Adam – 11; Blake – 7; Cee Lo – 10; and Christina- 11.
Michelle Brooks Thompson –age 28 from Massachusetts. Her husband made it to the NFL but was dropped before he even touched the field for the first game. For her audition she sings Proud Mary. Cee Lo and Adam turn around when she hits the note in “proud”. She has a nice voice and it was a fun version of the song. Christina turned her chair around for Michelle’s last note. Adam calls her incredible; Christina said she was waiting for a crack and a flaw, but figured she would have to be an idiot to not see what was going on behind her chair; Cee Lo said it was a very seamless vocal. Which team does she go for? TEAM ADAM!
Diego Val – Age 25, originally from Peru but lives in Miami, Fl. When he was 8, he was afflicted with a disease that was supposed to cripple him for life. Since he spent so much time in the hospital as a child, he now works with a non profit organization singing to kids in the hospital. Such a dope guy. For his audition he sings Animal accompanied by the guitar. Cee Lo is the only coach to press his button. He did a good job. It was a win for TEAM CEE LO!
Lauren Brooke – Age 24 from Paulie (sp), NY. They are playing country music in the background while talking about her, so I wonder if she sings country. For her audition she sings Cowboy Casanova. She seemed to lose her confidence in this audition. She had good moments, but none of the coaches turned around. General consensus isshe was a little pitchy but with a little correction she could be good.
Suzanna Choffel – Age 32 from Austin, Tx (!!!!). For her audition she sings Landslide. Adam presses his button really fast. Her voice is really unique. She reminds me of a raspier indie version of Dolly Parton. Blake also turns around. Cee Lo said he could tell it was a grown woman singing the voice. Adam said its hard to come on stage and sound refreshingly unique, which is what she did. Between Adam and Blake which does she choose? TEAM BLAKE!
Michaela Paige – singing “Sober” for TEAM BLAKE
Ryan Jirovec – singing “Amazed” for TEAM BLAKE
Dez Duron – 22 year old from Shreveport, LA, who also auditioned last season. He is back. For his audition he sings “Sara Smile”. The girls are screaming while he is singing. He has a good voice and suddenly Blake presses his button. When he recognizes him, he yells out in surprise. Then he turns to Christina and says playfully “you don’t want that one” and she presses her button, it seems to spite him. LOL. That was awesome. Cee Lo is the last to press his button. Dez finishes his song and struts around the stage in celebration. They all fight for this dude. Christina just kept going on and on. LOL. And Blake had a serious man crush. I thought Dez was going with Blake for sure, but who does he go for? TEAM CHRISTINA!
VJ – Age 25 from Bellflower, California and he teaches music at a conservatory. He wants to take the next step from being a teacher to a full fledged performer. For his audition he sings “Forget You.” He sings in falsetto a lot and has a high register. I just don’t think this was the best song for him. None of the coaches turned around. Christina said he was missing the spank in the song. Cee Lo said he had great taste in music. Then he gets up to sing the song and accidentally sings fuck. LOL. Then they sing the song together onstage. Good stuff. Honestly that probably left the best impression VJ could get from Cee Lo after not getting picked on a team.
Alexis Marceaux – 23 year old from New Orleans, LA. For her audition she sings “Go Your Own Way”. I am not familiar with this song, but she reminds me a little of Cheesa from last season. Cee Lo is the only coach to turn around for her. He says her voice is wonderfully impeccable. It’s another team member for TEAM CEE LO!
Sam James – singing “Imagine” for TEAM ADAM! I really liked this guys voice, even though he had about 10 seconds on screen.
Laura Vivas - singing “Whataya Want From Me” for TEAM CHRISTINA!
Lelia Broussard – singing “We Can Work it Out” for TEAM BLAKE! She is really familiar to me. I wonder if she is related to Marc Broussard.
Brandon Mahone – 17 year old from Chicago but living in Indianapolis. For his audition he sings “I Wish It Would Rain.” I love his tone. Adam turns around first. But the best part is his mom back stage screaming at the television like she is watching a football game. Cee Lo presses his button followed by Christina. They all feel his voice very experienced. No one felt he was imitating being a soul singer. Who does he choose? TEAM ADAM!
Jeffrey James – 25 year old from Indianapolis as well. For his audition he sings “A Little Less Conversation.” He has a good voice. Its really difficult to sing so many words at once and articulate to where anyone can understand. But no one turns around. Wow. That really surprised me. That sucks. I hate when Adam says you’re really good but he didn’t turn around.
Jordan Pruitt – 21 year old from Loganville, GA. Former Disney star that is tired of doing the kid Disney music. For her audition she sings “The One That Got Away”. Christina is the only coach to turn around. Afterwards she tells her she has been waiting for her and loved her falsetto parts.
Terisa Griffin – a lovely 42 year old woman. Already I smell a diva. LOL. She seems really nice. For her audition she sings “Someone Like You”. I love this song, so I wasn’t feeling the song, until it got to the chorus. Blake is yelling at Christina to press her button, and when she finally does, he pushes his as well. Blake tells her he was prompting Christina to turn around, but then thought to himself to hell with Christina. Who does she pick in the end? TEAM BLAKE!
Highlights for me: Sam James, Brandon Mahone, Dez Duron
