Sasha Allen completely blew us away on ‘The Voice’ on Monday, April 8! Watch the performance that took her from backup vocalist to star — and see which judge she chose!
Season four of The Voice is bringing the big talent! And one talented woman’s dreams came true on Monday when all four judges turned their chairs — Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Usher and Shakira all had to fight for 30-year-old Sasha Allen.
Season 4 Highlights Country & Rock Stars
From singer Jeff Lewis who dared to sing Usher’s “You Got It Bad” to Rock Mafia alum Shawna P‘s rockin’ version of “She Talks To Angels,” the stage was filled with talent on Monday night.
Caroline Glaser‘s soft but strong voice turned the chairs of both Blake and Shakira, and it was not surprising. The 18-year-old who is used to singing in coffee shops absolutely nailed “Tiny Dancer.”
Her adorable dimples made all the judges agree that her voice was different from any others they had heard on the show so far.
“I strive to be song writer, so I think I’m going to go with Team Blake,” she finally said, bumming out Shakira. Blake couldn’t have been happier — and then the crowd started chanting his name! It was quite entertaining, as the show always is.
Other entertaining performances included 43-year-old Michael Austin, whose country roots got Adam and Shakira to turn their chairs — that’s right, Blake didn’t turn for a guy nicknamed “Big N’ Country!” He ended up going to Team Adam!
Ryan Innes Impresses Judges — Shocks Us With Choice
With the competition down to the wire, it takes a lot to turn all four chairs of the judges. However, two artists did it with no trouble at all. The last artist of the night left a lasting impression on all the judges. 41-year-old Ryan Innes was a soulful singer, who turned Adam’s chair after just one word!
Blake was quick to follow, and before you know it — all four judges were cheering him on.
“I might be late to the party, but I’m gonna make the most noise,” Ryan said when getting on stage. And that he did — he had the judges begging for him. After all, though — he went with his gut and chose an extremely excited Usher.
Sasha Allen: Experienced Singer Wows Us All
For me, the star of the night was former backup singer for Christina Aguilera, John Legend and Alicia Keys! Before taking the stage, she would probably choose Usher or Shakira if she had the choice, because that would be beneficial for her voice. However, she then adds that Blake and Adam sure would teach her a lot. So, we got no hints!
Sasha decided to take on the Dixie Chick‘s “Not Ready To Make Nice” to showcase her voice… and it completely worked. Her extremely song voice was expressed perfectly with the country song, and she held out the notes a little longer than the original version, showing that she definitely had the voice — it turned all four chairs.
“Beautiful girl singing a country song,” Blake said when she was done. “We’re meant to be, can’t you see that?”
Of course Adam wasn’t letting that happen and he added in that she was “magical.” Plus, while Usher and Shakira were trying their best to win her over, Adam reminded Sasha that they were just rookies!
Apparently, to worked. Even Adam looked shocked when she decided to choose him!
Team Adam may be taking over this season. Tomorrow is the last night of the blind auditions and each team has one more spot open!
