The Voice season 3 auditions are back again tonight with another round of (hopefully) sensational singers. Coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera have reached the halfway point in filling their teams. The remaining The Voice season 3 auditions will have to be truly stellar to win one of the dwindling spaces on their teams. Let’s hope we see some seriously amazing new performers in our The Voice recap for Tuesday and watch those teams fill out with awesome talent!
While The Voice season 3 auditions last night were perhaps not quite as thrilling as the ones from last week’s premiere shows, there were still some great performers selected for each of the coaches’ teams. I’ve already started compiling a list of my favorites for the season and I’m really hoping they’ll survive through to the end.
WARNING: THE VOICE SEASON 3 SPOILERS AHEAD!
This post contains spoilers from The Voice season 3 blind auditions. Please stop reading if you do not want to know what happened!
Before we get started in our The Voice recap of the blind auditions round 5, here’s how the teams are lining up so far from The Voice season 3 auditions so far:
Team Adam Levine: Bryan Keith, Joe Kirkland, Samuel Morton, Nicole Nelson, Loren Allred, Melanie Martinez, Brian Scartocci, Alessandra Guerico, Adanna Duro (9 out of 16)
Team Blake Shelton: Terry McDermott, Gracia Harrison, Casey Muessicman, Julio Cesar Castillo, Crystal and Alison Steele, Liz Davis, Kelly Crapa (7 out of 16)
Team Christina Aguilera: De’Borah, Devon Deloera, Adriana Louise, Aguile, Nelly’s Echo, Lisa Scinta, MarissaAnn, Beat Frequency, Paulina (Total: 9 out of 16)
Team Cee Lo Green: Daniel Rosa, Trevin Hunte, Mackenzie Bourg, Domo, JR Aquino, Nicholas David, Avery Wilson (Total: 7 out of 16)
From the tally so far, it looks like Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green have a bit of catching up tonight as they have two less team members each than Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine. Let’s hope tonight in our The Voice season 3 recap there will be plenty of fantastic talent to go around!
Up first tonight hoping to impress the coaches is Trevanne Howell, a single mother of two from Bronx, New York. She gives a somewhat strained performance of “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston. Sadly for Trevanne, her song fails to inspire any of the coaches to hit their buttons.
Cee Lo Green tells Trevanne it was just too much. Christina Aguilera thinks there were some good runs, but the performance was just too shaky. Adam says the song was ambitious, but it was too much of a tall order for her.
The next performer is Colin McLoughlin, a former NYU student who quit to pursue his dream of being a singer, even though his parents would much rather he stayed in school. Colin may have a future in music despite what his parents think. He is able to impress Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine enough to get them to push their buttons with his performance of “Wild World” by Cat Stevens.
The only one not to spin her chair, Christina says the song was just too mellow for her. Cee Lo says he was very impressed and loved it. Blake says he was the only one to start singing along. Adam says Colin has a great, pure tone and sound. Colin chooses Adam as his coach.
Joselyn Rivera was a premature baby and was a late speaker after being in the hospital for a long time. After a doctor gave her music as a therapy prescription, Joselyn bloomed and music has been part of her ever since. She sings a very appropriate song for her life story, performing “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson.
Both Christina and Blake hit their buttons for Joselyn’s performance and they have a little play catfight over her. Blake says he was totally caught up in her performance. Christina says she wants to nurture her on her team. Blake interrupts to say (jokingly) that Christina is abusive. Joslyn finally decides to go with Christina.
Benji is a former race car driver who ran out of money and decided to try his hand at being a singer. He says if it is meant to be, it will happen. Benji gives a totally entertaining performance of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan and has all the judges smiling and Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green spinning their chairs.
Adam says Benji has an amazing dynamic and he is the real thing. He loves his scream. Christina didn’t hit her button, but she also loves his screams and says he had some great moments with a bit of “Adam” tone in the mix. Cee Lo says he heard real heart and soul and is at a loss for words. Benji decides to choose Adam for his coach.
We have a brief montage of other successful auditions for the night with all the contestants choosing to join the team of Cee Lo Green. Cee Lo adds Todd Kessler, Ben Taub and Emily Earle to his roster.
Now we have an audition that does not go so well with 52-year-old vocal coach Lorraine Ferro. Sadly, Lorraine’s performance of “Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato is just not up to par and she doesn’t get any of the judges to turn for her.
Cee Lo says Lorraine is beautiful at 52, but her control was lacking and her high notes were off. Blake says there just wasn’t a spark with her performance and her consistency wasn’t there.
The last performer of the night is Mycle Wastman, who has a big voice that just doesn’t go with what he looks like at all. His story is sad with his parents dying when he was young and his grandfather passing away just a week and a half ago. His performance, thankfully, is really great and he snags Adam, Cee Lo and Blake with his rendition of “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green.
Adam wiggles around saying something like “where are you hiding the big black guy with that voice”. Cee Lo gets up for a standing ovation and says he was fabulous. The praise is universal all around. In the end, Mycle decides to pick Cee Lo as his coach.
