We have three nights of the Voice Premiere this season, so things have only begun on The Voice 2017! Tonight brings us to Night 2 of The Voice Season 12 premiere and the blind auditions on The Voice USA 2017 will continue, as more artists are looking for The Voice coaches 2017 (Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Alicia Keys) to hit their button for them! We had a strong start to Season 12, so can these new artists keep it up tonight on NBC? Check it out with us during our The Voice 2017 Live Recap and see who made it through to the next round as the Voice Blinds continue!
Last night on The Voice 2017 Season 12, we kicked off a new season and it was definitely a night of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, huh? I loved it, but I am sure there are people that were annoyed by the focus being on them a lot! However, we did see some pretty good blind auditions along the way, including Felicia Temple, who got to sing along with Alicia Keys before joining Team Alicia, and Mark Isaiah, who joined Team Adam! Who gets those red chairs to turn around tonight?
The fun begins soon, so follow along with our live recap below and watch as the Voice Blinds on The Voice Season 12 take place!

After some trash talking backstage, it is time for the auditions to begin for tonight!
Carson Daly heads out to New Jersey to meet this next artist, who is a coach for figure skating for the past nine years. She started figure skating herself when she was 3 years old! As a child, she was in an all-girl group and they recorded music together, but it never went anywhere, so she got out of music. She is back and this is her “Last Dance,” hence the song choice! She has a very strong stage presence and gets Adam to hit his button right away. She hits some big notes along the way and gets all four coaches to turnaround eventually!
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Adam said the grace and the sound like her does not come around often and she could easily win this show. Gwen said she is so blown away and she is incredible. Alicia said she was enjoying her voice and how it grew and is probably one of those women that is just good at everything. Blake said this girl is unbelievable and that was so good and he is dying for her, as he is drowning in a pool of coaches.
RESULTS – Autumn picks to join Team Alicia!
It looks like we have a rocker here on The Voice 2017, huh? He said he is playing a guitar tonight that he shaped himself. He actually played in a band that opened for Judith Hill, who appeared on Season 4 of The Voice. It lasted four months, but then his dad passed away and it took him away from music. I love his voice, as it is so smooth and very good. He is feeling those lyrics and playing the guitar very nice and so bluesy. Adam hits quickly for him.
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Adam said his voice is very precisioned and hears some Cee Lo Green. Alicia said that voice is next-level killer. She did not turn around, as she thought if she did, that would be another artist that Adam would not have on his team!
RESULTS – No on else hit besides Adam, so Jesse joins Team Adam!
She is only 15 years old and already has opened up for Jesse McCartney at the BET Experience and went to the BET Awards. Her father, who was a drummer, passed away when she was only a month old. She starts singing and I am loving her voice. She has a deep tone to it and gets some growls in there. She hits some big notes along the way. She definitely is young and could use some coaching, but she is good. Blake eventually hits, but then Alicia and Gwen join him at the end!
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Blake said he has had a lot of success with young artists on this show and she has so much power in her voice. Alicia said the song is grimy and she was so pure and she loved it. Gwen said back when she was 15, she was just discovering music and she has to learn what message she wants to deliver with her music and would love to be her coach.
RESULTS – In a shocker, Aliyah picks to join Team Blake on The Voice USA 2017!
She has had some issues growing up and her father walked out on her family. It made her have to grow up fast, but her stepdad came in and saved the day. She is from a small town and does gigs when she can, as a 16 year old. She has a strong voice and hits a huge note and gets Blake to hit his button. Savannah is beyond excited, but powers through and gets Gwen to hit her button at the end!
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Alicia said she has so much potential in her voice and she is so glad these lovebirds hit their button for her. Blake said Gwen knows nothing about girls from the south, but she said hello, Southern California! Gwen said why would you go with a grown man when she could hang out with her! She is now a mother and can mother her. Blake said she has lived her dream and was never a little girl, but Savannah is his chance to live the little girls’ dream.
RESULTS – They battled it out and Savannah picks to join Team Gwen!
He is from a small town and played pretty much every sport in growing up. Music was not really an option in a small town, but a theater group came to his town and he signed up and went there! He definitely has a voice made for the stage, as I just can listen to him and hear Broadway. Blake comes close to hitting his button, but backs away. He can hold a note forever, but no coaches turn for him on The Voice 2017 Season 12!
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Adam said he has a great voice, but he is a tiny bit flat. Try to be sharp and he’ll come right in that sweet spot. Alicia said she heard more of the technicality and not the emotion, so she would mix that up.
She is an actor and singer in Los Angeles, but to make ends meet she is a server. Carson sat down and chatted with her for a little bit. She comes out and is giving us that old school vibe with this song choice. Her voice is so, so strong and so smooth. She shows off some good range and is very confident up there, as she gets Blake, Gwen and Alicia to turn for her!
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Blake said there is something so classic about her. She is so good and asked her to pick him! Alicia said that was so cool. She would love to explore that world with her and let that be her lane. Gwen said she loves her voice and it has that theatrical sound to it and would love to be her coach. Alicia puts it all out there, as she sings some song to her that she makes up on the spot and Lilli is blown away!
RESULTS – The song worked, as Lilli picks to join Team Alicia!
