Adam Levine may have Season 10 of ‘The Voice’ in the bag after securing this contestant on his team during the March 7 Blind Auditions! Ryan Quinn’s debut performance on the show was definitely the most memorable of the night, and he’s already proven to be the REAL deal. My money’s on this guy!
There’s always a select few people I gravitate toward after the first round of competition on The Voice, and so far, for Season 10, Ryan Quinn is definitely one of ’em! The 25-year-old totally blew me away with his Blind Audition on the March 7 episode, but it’s already clear that he has much more than just a good voice to offer.
There was nobody better to close out the night than Ryan. He was the episode’s only four chair turn, totally impressing Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Pharrell and Blake Shelton with his rendition of “Can’t Find My Way Home.” The way he floated in and out of that incredible falsetto with such ease was beyond amazing, and it’s clear that singing just comes so natural to him.
But it was more than just Ryan’s voice that had me intrigued — his story was totally touching, too. The 25-year-old hails from upstate New York and teaches music to children who’ve been through traumatic experiences in their lifetime. It’s clear from the second he starts telling the camera about himself that music is his passion, and he really drew me in from the second he came on screen. Hey, it doesn’t hurt that he’s a good looking dude, either, right?!
What I also loved was that Ryan initially said he wanted Pharrell as his coach, but he made his decision in the moment and really went with his gut. He actually wound up choosing Adam, clearly feeling a connection to the Maroon 5 singer when he was finally in front of the panel. To me, this is proof that Ryan is truly taking this experience seriously, and I think he and Adam will make a GREAT team.
Adam won a big four-chair turn with Jordan Smith last season, and the duo rode the whole competition to the end together, with Jordan being named the Season 9 winner in Dec. 2015. I certainly won’t be surprised if Ryan helps Adam get another win under his belt this time around, and I can’t wait to see what he does as the show goes on!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Ryan’s Blind Audition? Do you think he’ll win Season 10?
