The Morgan Twins From Rochester Make Team Blake on ‘The Voice’ – Premiere Recap [VIDEOS]
The coaches may be new on NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ but the competition is still the same. Get a chair to turn around during the blind auditions and you’re in! Blake Shelton and Adam Levine returned for Season four of ‘The Voice,’ with newcomers Shakira and Usher, but it was Blake drawing first blood with the Morgan twins from Rochester New York.
The Morgan Twins ‘Fallin”
Cara and Rhian Morgan kicked off the show with all four coaches turning around. Blake Shelton was blown away by the voices and their beauty. ‘Is this for real? Is this really happening? This is a dream come true from most men. I hit my button before I knew there was a duo. There was some really cool runs and great singing. Then to turn around and see y’all, like a double mint commercial, congratulation.’ Despite the other three coaches pleas, the twins went with Team Blake. His wife Miranda may want to sit in on some of their sessions.
Danielle Bradbery ‘Mean’
16-year-old Danielle Bradbery had the 3 boys fighting for her to join their team, after singing Taylor Swift’s ‘Mean.’ Blake was more interested in her voice then her look. ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so good. You’re pitch is amazing.’ Despite Adam Levine comparing Danielle to Taylor, who he said ‘Is not primarily a country artist,’ Blake disagreed saying ‘No, we take ownership of Taylor Swift in country music. You could become a teenaged star in country music and I want to be the guy who introduces you to Nashville.’ The place Usher thought was a state. Blake corrected him, ‘Nashville is a state of mind.’ In the end Danielle went with her heart and choose Blake Shelton. Team Blake is looking strong.
Christian Porter ‘I’m Sexy & I Know It’
Christian Porter put his own flair into ‘I’m Sexy & I Know It,’ making 3 of the 4 coaches turn their chairs. Blake was impressed with his innovation. ‘So much imagination went into that arrangement. I’m a fan and I’d love to have the chance to work with you.’ Christian oddly, went with Team Blake. Maybe Blake can give Christian pointers on singing and Christian can give Blake pointers on being sexy.
Judith Hill ‘What a Girl Wants’
The steal of the night was Judith Hill, who worked with Michael Jackson and sang at his funeral. Her version of ‘What a Girl Wants’ had all four coaches begging to have her on their team. Adam even threatened to ‘set myself on fire‘ to have Judith on his team. Despite a lot of grovelling, arguing and promises of a win, Judith went with season 1 winner Adam Levine. Team Blake may have to keep an eye on Judith, who could very well win this year.
The blind auditions continue tonight on NBC at 8. Tune in to see if Blake Shelton adds more to his team.
