The Blind Auditions continued with incredible performances on ‘The Voice’ Sept. 29, and as the coaches teams began filling up, they fought hard to get the singers they wanted most. But nobody blew the four judges away more than an incredible and unexpected twin duo!
It was an all-out battle between Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell on the Sept. 29 episode of The Voice! A night full of amazing performances totally impressed all the coaches, and a surprising duet had them all completely in awe. Read our full recap of the night here!
Darius Scott kicked off night four of the Blind Auditions and Adam, Gwen and Pharrell were completely blown away. After a tough battle between all three of them, Darius basically admitted he’d had his mind made up from the beginning — Team Pharrell it is! The next contestant of the evening is what The Voice is all about. Korin Bukowski is admittedly “different,” but on this show, the voice is all that matters, and hers really impressed Gwen. The No Doubt frontwoman was the only one to push her button, meaning Korin immediately found her home. YAY!
Up next was small town country girl Krista Hughes, who really proved her musical chops by bringing a guitar on stage to accompany her INCREDIBLE rendition of “Angel From Montgomery.” Adam turned around almost immediately, and the rest of the coaches quickly followed. And, not surprisingly, Krista went with country coach Blake — his team is SERIOUSLY filling up with southern singers at this point.
Jane Strother was ready to give it her all on stage next, and really brought the energy with her performance of “Uptown Funk.” Unfortunately, it just wasn’t enough to get a coach to turn around. Next, and hoping to have better luck, was 15-year-old Chance Pena — you guys, HOW cute is he!? Adam was totally intrigued and was the only coach to push his button, landing his first team member of the night.
The next artist, Viktor Kiraly, came all the way from Budapest, Hungary to audition for the show — and it was worth it! Adam pushed his button RIGHT away, with the rest of the coaches following before the end of the song. Gwen wanted Viktor on her team SO badly, that she even rushed up to the stage so he could look right in her eyes. All four really brought their claws out to fight for this one, but Viktor ultimately went with the King of four chair turns, Adam.
18-year-old perfectionist Julie Broadus performed next, and although she was hoping for a four chair turn, it wasn’t enough for any of the judges to press their buttons. Julie did sound a little bit raw and nervous, but she’s definitely one that can benefit from coming back next year. Cole Criske hoped to fare better when he took the stage in honor of his late father, and he was thrilled when Gwen, Blake and Pharrell all turned around. Thanks to his connection to Blake’s season 1 contestant, Xenia, Cole couldn’t help but pick the “Sangria” singer, and they’re going to make a great team.
Up next, Alex Kandel hit the stage to sing a rendition of “Bright,” leaving Adam and Gwen to battle it out. But it was all about girl power on this one — Team Gwen, baby! Another powerful female singer, Celeste Benton, was next, and Pharrell showed his approval by pushing his button right at the end, automatically adding another member to his team. SO awesome for both of them!
Closing out the night was twin duo Andi and Alex, and from the very first note, I was immediately in awe. The girls were COMPLETELY in sync during their rendition of “Thank You,” and it was NO surprise when all four coaches turned around. The judges fought harder than ever on this one, but the girls went with….Adam, just as I suspected. His track record with those four chair turns is unbeatable!
After night four of the Blind Auditions, all four coaches have 10 contestants on their rosters. The four superstars will complete their teams in next Monday’s episode, and then it’s onto the Battle Rounds — and you know we’ll keep you updated every step of the way!
HollywoodLifers, do you think the twins have what it takes to win the whole thing? Do you think they picked the right coach?
