She is ready to win and comes in with a new energy for The Voice USA 2017! Alicia said Gwen has a cool, diverse variety on her team. Blake said he thinks the world of Gwen, but he is here to win. Adam said Gwen is on fire and Season 12 is all about her. Now to the artists on her team, or the ones they are highlighting tonight on The Voice 2017:
- JChosen – This was the one that Alicia was hiding behind Gwen’s chair on. It was a four-chair win for Gwen and his “Sexual Healing,” even though she was not feeling confident when it started.
- Sammie Zonana – Loved this performance of “Dangerous Woman” and her unique, indie tone.
- Brandon Royal – He is a firefighter with those island roots. Blake said he wanted to help him hold his hose!
- Savannah Leighton – Another victory over Blake for this one, as it was Gwen’s theme this season during the Voice Blinds. Gwen went up for a hug and won it early with that one! Adam said Blake could b sleeping on the couch after this one. Gwen used the girl power defense and it worked.
- Johnny Gates – He had some success early on, as him and his band toured with Rod Stewart back in 2015. Blake said Johnny has that Mick Jagger stage presence. Gwen used the rock band and garage band defense and it worked!
- Kenny P – He is a rocker that is new to Nashville.
- Aaliyah Rose – She is the younger member of Team Gwen on The Voice 2017.
- Caroline Sky – Gwen said Blake has never lived her dream like Gwen has and it worked!
- Stephanie Rice – I loved, loved, loved this performance. She took on “Piece By Piece” by Kelly Clarkson and even got a tweet of love for Kelly! Alicia said she was upset she did not hit her button for Stephanie and really wanted to.
- Troy Ramey – He started singing after losing his father. Troy said his mother is amazed by Blake’s dimples, but it did not help and Gwen won another four-chair turnaround on this one!
That is all we get to see from Team Gwen on The Voice 2017 tonight! We then see a sneak peek of the Voice Battles for them, as Celine Dion will be the team’s mentor and I am going to love seeing her in action!
He has won the show three times, so he wants another victory. Gwen said he is impossible and determined to get an artist on his team. Blake said he will not take no for an answer and Alicia said Team Adam has a strong team and he has shown off some swag this season! Now to Team Adam:
- Johnny Hayes – He tried out for Season 11, but did not get a coach to turn for him. Not this time and Adam swoops him up! Adam said he is a great artist and we need to watch out for him.
- Sheena Brook – Blake said Adam’s dream is to beat him with a country artist and Sheen may be that artist to do it.
- Julien Martinez – That final screaming note is what won over Blake and Adam, so they had to hit!
- Kawan DeBose – He definitely has a lot of soul in that voice. Adam said he rendered him speechless, which Blake was beyond excited for. Blake said he has horrible taste in coaches, but Kawan will be around for a while on The Voice Season 12!
- Josh West – Carson Daly said this was one of Adam’s biggest wins of the season. Josh is an alternative rocker and sings in a band with his dad. He was a four-chair turnaround victory for Adam! He said it was like talking to a 17-year-old version of him with better hair and a better voice.
- Malik Davage – This guy definitely made me cry, as he said he was doing this one for his daughter. Once he got a team, he started crying and I am crying again!
- Hanna Eyre – Does that smile not warm you up? Is it a young Taylor Swift?
- Mark Isaiah – He used to be overweight and was nervous. He lost weight in college and gained confidence along the way and now on The Voice 2017. Adam said people are going to be surprised how far he goes on the show and he is a ringer.
That is it for Team Adam! He said they are a dynamic team and he has a good variety and a couple of them could definitely win. Now a sneak peek of their Voice Battles, as John Legend is Team Adam’s mentor! Adam is going blonde for the battle rounds, so prepare yourselves!
She is back for her second season as a coach. She said she has a competitive nature and it is alive and well. Blake said she has been dedicated to getting under his skin this season. Adam said she is a blast. Gwen said Alicia will do anything to get an artist on her team and she is fearless. Now to her highlighted artists:
- Anatalia Villaranda – She took on a Bruno Mars song and I loved it! Alicia said she was next level and this was crazy. This was a four-chair turnaround victory for Alicia.
- Jack Cassidy – He comes from a famous family, as his uncles are David and Sean Cassidy and his grandma is Shirley Jones from The Partridge Family! Alicia said she was was lost in his performance and felt so much from it.
- Felicia Temple – She is a nurse that was battling cancer, but is cancer-free now. She also is a huge fan of Alicia and got to sing with her, which Adam said was one of his favorite moments of the entire show!
- Autumn Turner – She has been coaching ice skating for nine years, but can now finally focus on her singing and thinks this could be her last chance. Alicia said she kept getting better and better and she was really a shocker, as Alicia won another four-chair turnaround!
- Hunter Plake – Alicia said he has a clear tone and a beautiful style. She wants to explore songs with his voice.
- Quizz Swanigan – He is 13 years old, so the youngest contestant in Voice history. He has played a young Michael Jackson and his voice sounds like him! Alicia said he sang so effortlessly and cannot wait to get her hands on him.
- Lilli Passero – Alicia said that Lilli is in her own lane and no one else like her on the show and she is really special. This is the artist that Alicia sang to and made up her own song and it worked!
- Chris Blue – His fiancee had an operation on her brain and she flatlined. She was revived, so he locked her down and does not want to miss out on any more chances in life and auditioned for The Voice 2017! His voice is amazing and Alicia was loving the fact that she was the last coach with a spot when he auditioned!
That is it for Team Alicia. She said they are fresh, with a fresh sound and fresh energy. She has a lot of young people on her team and they are ready to take over. We get a sneak peek of their Voice Battles, as DJ Khaled serves as their mentor.
He is coming off a victory in Season 11 and wants his sixth victory! He has been sporting the dance moves on The Voice 2017. Gwen said it is so hard to go against Blake and wants to beat him so bad. He said every season starts with a fresh start and that is why he loves being on this show. Now to his highlighted artists here:
- Lauren Duski – She comes from a family of dentists, so she is breaking the family tradition. Blake said she is one of those artists that you know there is something special about them and she has a star quality.
- Valerie Ponzio – Carson said this was one of the biggest wins for Blake this season. Blake said she is unique and has an earthy quality to her tone. This was a four-chair victory for Blake! Gwen said that is one that got away and she was heartbroken.
- Ashley Levin – She takes care of her ailing father, but with her family’s support, she is here. Gwen tried the forget about the genre thing, but it did not work!
- Aliyah Moulden – She is one of the youngest members of Team Blake. Gwen said she is the cutest thing she has ever seen. Blake said she had so much power and energy in her vocals.
- TSoul – Soul is what he heard all his life, so he changed his name to it! Blake said he has vocal chords that sound like chains and he has a big, manly voice.
- Andrea Thomas – Blake said she had a beautiful, angelic voice.
- Josh Hoyer – Blake said he has a weathered sounding voice and it sounds so good.
- Brennley Brown – She is only 14 years old. It was a battle with Alicia, but Blake gets the young girl on his team again. He loves the potential he has with someone like Brennley.
- Casi Joy – It was another big win for Blake, as he got another four-chair turnaround victory. She is a country artist from Nashville, so duh! He said she is the type of artist that when you get them on your team, you think you truly have a chance to win this thing.
Team Blake is complete and he said he is very happy with his team and he wants to win this season as badly as he wanted to win in Season 1. We check out a sneak peek of their Voice Battles, as he gets helps from country superstar Luke Bryan!
We check out some never-seen-before footage of The Voice 2017 coaches, which is always hilarious to see. I just love all of them. Then we see a performance from the coaches, as they sing an unplugged version of “Waterfalls” by TLC. I love this performance and it is so cool to see.
We are done for tonight! Who do you think has the strongest team on The Voice 2017 heading into the Voice Battles next week?
