Another night of Voice Auditions!
Ducky – “Tighten Up” – Ducky didn’t get picked…Although all the judges say they regret it. His performance didn’t come out and grab me either, and I guess I can see why he didn’t get picked. But his look was pretty rockin! Too bad this competition isn’t called The Look.
Jonathis – “You Got It Bad” – This kid is a great dancer and a great performer, but I don’t know if he is really that strong of a singer. CeeLo and Xtina both turned their chair around, but ultimately he made a great decision and chose TEAM XTINA.
Monique Benabou – “Mr. Know It All” – She has a STRONG voice but she had a few pitch issues especially around the bridge. But it wasn’t so bad that it can’t be fixed. I think that is why Xtina hesitated, but ultimately chose her. She went TEAM XTINA.
Naia Kete – “The Lazy Song” – There are 3 generations of dreds in this family! She is a singer on the third street promenade, and she has a very nice tone to her voice. It sounded strong and soothing at the same time. Blake and CeeLo turned around and she chose TEAM BLAKE.
Erick Macek – “Free Fallin‘” – I really liked his interpretation of the song, but his voice just wasn’t strong enough. He doesn’t get picked.
Charlotte Sometimes – “Apologize” – She has this very indie sound to her voice, and made all four judges turn their chairs. But in a surprise decision, she chose TEAM BLAKE.
Tony Vincent – “We Are The Champions” – This Broadway boy knocked it out with this performance. It is tough to pull off Queen and he did it well. He went TEAM CEELO.
Anthony Evans – “What’s Going On” – He has a voice that can actually be quite versatile. He may not have big range, but as Xtina said, he was technically excellent. He went TEAM XTINA.
Jamie Lono – “Folsom Prison Blues” – What a great rendition of that song! This is one of my favorite performances thus far. Adam and Ceelo turn around, but he goes TEAM CEELO.
Dylan Chambers – “Valerie” – It wasn’t thrilling for me, and I understand why the judges didn’t pick him. he seems too young and needs more work.
Justin Hopkins – “Babylon” – This was a less than thrilling song choice for him–he has a great voice, and I think CeeLo will do well with him. He goes TEAM CEELO.
Nicolle Galyon – “You Save Me” – She has some serious raw talent that can just be refined. I’m hoping she can turn off the nerves and gain some confidence. She goes TEAM ADAM.
A few snippets of performances: Ashley De La Rosa goes TEAM XTINA, Jordan Rager goes TEAM BLAKE, Karla Davis goes TEAM ADAM, and ALyX (WTF is with the spelling?) goes TEAM BLAKE.
Eric Tipton – “You Make My Dreams Come True” – This guy would have gotten chosen if he picked a better song. Hall and Oates? Not so great. He doesn’t manage to turn a chair.
Mathai – “Rumor Has It” – She is a cute girl and had a pretty nice interpretation of the song. Not surprisingly all the guys turned around, and not surprisingly, she goes TEAM ADAM.
One more week of these auditions! I really do find them entertaining, but I’m still going to whine about a two-hour episode. I also hate how everyone has these weird health related sob stories…”I had my jaw wired shut.” “I have half a lung.” Really? I don’t blame the contestants, because clearly this is producer prompted…
Dear The Voice producers,
If I wanted to hear about people’s freak health issues, I would watch the Discovery Health channel. Please stick to singing. thx.
