We bring Week 2 of the Voice Blinds to a close tonight on The Voice 2017, as The Voice coaches 2017 (Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys and Adam Levine) look to put the finishing touches on their teams! The Voice Season 12 has seen some great artists so far, but what will tonight bring for us on The Voice USA 2017? 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 moved into Night 4 of the Voice Blinds. The coaches have been on top of their game with the banter this season, as it has been really fun to watch. They have a good rapport among them all, but the focus should be on the artists, right? One of those artists sent Adam and Blake into a battle themselves, as they both wanted Gaby Borromeo on their team! In the end, she chose Team Adam and he felt like his team started slow, but is getting stronger as the Voice Blinds move on.
The fun has already begun, so follow along with our live recap below and watch as the Voice Blinds on The Voice Season 12 take place!

The coaches talk some smack backstage and Gwen feels she is getting the artists that should be on Team Blake! Now to the new Voice Blinds tonight!
He was kind of a loner in school, but then some kids asked him to join a band because he had long hair! He heard Taylor Swift’s first single and decided that her label would play their music, so they went to Nashville. They got a showcase in New York City and got signed, but it never went anywhere. He definitely has that rocker sound to his voice and he does this thing with his voice at the end which is cool. He gets everyone but Adam to turn for him!
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Alicia said his energy went through the whole place and his tone is amazing. Gwen said he is incredible and she is the best choice for him. Adam said he loves that song. Alicia said she loves the range he had and we don’t hear guys in that register. Blake said he is capable of a lot of things and would love to see him stay in that rock lane.
RESULTS – Johnny picks to join Team Gwen!
He grew up in D.C. and lived in a rough neighborhood and just wanted to get out. His father has been in prison since Malik was 2 years old. He said he has put years into this, but breaking into music is hard. He works retail for now, but he has a daughter and she is his life. This is the first time his daughter will see him perform on stage! He has a good sound to his voice and gets Adam to hit his button pretty quickly. I like him and think he could use some work, but a good coach can help.
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Alicia said a man who can wear his heart on his sleeve is a man who can make powerful music. Adam said he clearly has raw talent. He is happy he turned around because clearly he is a good dude.
RESULTS – Only Adam hit for him, so Malik joins Team Adam on The Voice 2017!
She has been singing since she could start singing. She performs in the school choir. Her family has been so supportive of her and her singing, so being on The Voice 2017 is validation for her. She sings “Girls Want To Have Fun,” but it is more of an acoustic/songwriter version and I am loving it. I love this style of voice and she was having fun with it, as she gets Gwen, Alicia and Blake to turn for her!
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Gwen said she is 16 and she has such a cool style and loves her voice. Alicia said it was so cool and thought there were two people singing at one point. She is a really special artist and is hoping to get to work with her. Blake said even though she is singing this song, he still had to push his button.
RESULTS – Lauryn picks to join Team Alicia!
He moved to Dallas to be closer to music and do open mics. After high school, he did college and worked as a bell hop, but music is his first choice. His father was in the Army and died in battle. He has a good voice and shows off some good notes along the way, but he seemed a little all over the place. He is young and needs more practice, but no coaches hit their button for him.
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Gwen said he got a little all over the place in the middle.. Adam said that is a difficult song to dance and sing to, so he needs to entertain us. Alicia said he has good energy and she was dancing with him.
RESULTS – No buttons for Paul, so he is headed home for now!
Growing up, they had a family band, but I guess they only knew how to sing one song? She got more and more into music and was singing in festivals and bars. She is only 16 years old, so had to sing outside a bar one time! She starts out the song and is very quiet and soft. It’s like, let it out girl and let them hear you! She kicks it in a little bit and Gwen hits her button for her. Blake joins her right at the very end.
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Alicia said sh is so talented and so excited she is on the show. Gwen said she loved her voice and so much control and patience. She said Blake has never lived her dream like Gwen has. Blake said he has had a lot of success with young talent. He needs someone like her on his team to take him through her journey.
RESULTS – Caroline picks to join Team Gwen!
He has always been drawn to music and performing. He currently sings in a band and works as a bartender. He is married with kids, so it is tough working as a touring musician and trying to make ends meet. He starts singing and gets me teared up already, as he sings to his family backstage. I like the tone of his voice and he is very confident on that stage. He has great stage presence and gets Gwen and Blake to hit for him!
COACHES’ THOUGHTS – Adam said he has a very soulful voice and glad he is on the show. Gwen said she enjoyed his performance and has no one like him on her team. Blake said he should be on the show and if he is going to be on the show, he should be on a winning team. Alicia said beautiful job tonight and that was cool.
RESULTS – Josh picks to join Team Blake and he finally wins one from Gwen!
