The Voice Blind Auditions Part 4 Recap

The VoiceAfter last week’s marathon of blind auditions of The Voice, I had lost a little of my enthusiasm for tonight, having been burned out a bit from three solid days of the show. Like a good little writer, however, I tuned in and found my enthusiasm instantly renewed, with amazing talent and just plain fun interactions between the judges.

Tonight kicked off like any other blind audition night on The Voice, with Blake Shelton being a braggart about his country music accomplishments and Carson Daley pretending to care about the back stories of the contestants. Then, a little girl with two toned hair and a bow on her head stepped onto stage and sang Britney Spears’ “Toxic” in a quirky acoustic manner while playing the guitar with a tambourine between her feet. With a killer kick off to the second week, Adam scored this the unique talent that is Melanie Martinez for his team.

The second contestant of the night was not so lucky, despite having a hit single that had previously sold over two million copies. Cupid, best known for his “Cupid Shuffle” (Visit any bar late at night that has a DJ to catch a sample of this song if you’re not sure), had fallen into the trap of the one hit wonder. He snatched up the opportunity on The Voice to break out of the pigeon hole that he had been placed in, so for his audition he decided to sing a song to help him do just that:  The Cupid Shuffle. Note to Cupid: If you’re trying to separate yourself from that song, don’t sing it for your audition. Needless to say, none of the judges turned their chairs around.

Several other contestants wowed the judges throughout the evening, including single dad, Brian Scartocci, who sang Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely,” earning him a spot on Adam’s team. The husband and wife duo known as ‘Beat Frequency,’ managed to win over Team Christina, leaving me to wonder if it must have sounded way better in person than it did on my television.  Country girl Liz Davis earned a spot on Blake’s team after he wooed her with visions of his Academy of Country Music Award.

Also winning over the judges was YouTube star, J.R. Aquino, from Anchorage, Alaska who knocked it out of the park with Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are.” After a bit of bickering, J.R. found his way over to Team CeeLo, much to the disappointment of Adam and Christina.  Making up for lost time, CeeLo picked up another team member with Nicholas David from Minnesota and his very unique and interesting rendition of “Stand By Me.’

Wrapping up the night were two high school students that took the judges off guard with their strong vocal abilities. Alessandra Guercio, a seventeen year old fine arts student, impressed Adam enough with her powerhouse, albeit shaky, version of “The Climb” for him to ask her to join his team. Last up was sixteen year old Avery Wilson with “Without You,” which may have been one of the most impressive performances of the competition thus far. After enticing all four judges to press their red buttons, Avery chose to join a very fortunate Team Cee Lo.

Tomorrow night, The Voice judges continue their search for talent to add to their teams. After tonight’s very impressive performances, one must wonder how they could possibly top it.

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
