The Voice Recap 9/28/15 – Season 9 – Blind Auditions Night 3
Tonight is the third night of Blind Auditions for Season 9 of The Voice! Last week we saw some completely phenomenal performances and watched as the judges duked it out to land top talent on their teams. That said, Jordan Smith’s jaw-dropping performance last week is going to be tough to top! He sang a pitch perfect rendition of Chandelier by Sia and completely blew everyone away. It might be a little too early to be calling a winner, but he’s my pick!
We’re going to see another group of The Voice hopefuls sing their hearts out and hope to turn the chairs of at least one of the four judges – Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, and Pharrell Williams. Of course host Carson Daly will be on hand to give us the scoop on each contestant before and after their audition.
Morgan Frazier – 22 – Nashville
Song: I Want You To Want Me by Cheap Trick
Morgan has been singing since she was a little girl. At the young age of 9, Morgan’s parents spent $5,000 to record an indie CD. They hit the road, selling copies along the way and made $30K. At 16, she found a manager in Nashville and lived in Nashville on her own as she collaborated with songwriters. Her manager didn’t pan out. She currently plays a couple of nights a week at at a local club, but wants to perform to a wider audience.
Judges reaction: Gwen turns immediately. Blake turns at the last minute. Morgan giggles. Gwen is not happy and tells her, “I know what to do with you!” she exclaims. Blake compares her to Emmylou Harris.
Morgan chooses Blake. He’s one of her heroes
Amanda Ayala – 17 – New York
Song: Mississippi Queen by Mountain
Amanda joined her first classic rock band at the young age of 12. They played around town, including the Bitter End in NYC. Amanda is looking for direction from a fellow female rocker – she really hopes Gwen turns. No one turns around initially but then Adam, Blake and Pharrell hit their buttons. Pharrell tells her he loves her tone. He can help her get to the second level. He sees potential. Blake is looa classic rocker on his team, noting the others have tons of rockers. Adam calls Blake “Sir Lies A Lot.” He thought her vocal got better as the song progressed. He sees that as some sort of sign. He’d also love to coach her. Amanda chooses Adam. She’s cannon fodder. Amanda admits she was eyeing Gwen.
