Contestant Name, age and other details about their performance.
Betsy Ade 40 years of age – single mom, and moving back into singing with her band. Hunger was her song choice. Legend turned followed by Adam. A comparison to Annie Lennox and Florence influence. Kelly suggested Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares To U. She chose…Legend in a flat second .
Dalton Dover from Georgia, who works in a factory and we meet the family. His brother in law and other family introduced him to music, with a guitar in hand he sang Don’t Close Your Eyes (Keith Whitley), a slow ballad, which eventually attracted Blake. Team Blake by default.
Rebecca Howell 18 years of age, small town, Georgia. She sang two bars, and Kelly turned. Legend hit his button, with a good solid vocal note-perfect throughout. She chose … Kelly @ImRebeccaHowell
Kendra Checketts 19 years of age, from San Diego California, music started in fourth grade for her, family trauma brain surgery for her father was revealed and she tried to stay happy throughout the ordeal. She performed Sober with a lot of emotion, good breathing, and they all went to sleep. Kelly wants to hear her ache. Team Blake.
JT Rodriguez, 28 from Chatanooga TN., he is a fitness coach and a singing niche. His mom has always been a musician and moved to Nashville TN in chasing a music career. Auditioning with a slower rendition of Higher Love (Steve Winwood). His tone was a bit off and sent the panel to claim he sounded to be between 70 – 90 years of age. No turns for him. He received a comeback call.
LB Crew 29, from Little Rock Arkansas – with Waves – Both Kelly and Blake went fast into his vocal, with a stronger and moving performance, then Legend and Levine move into the party for four chairs. Watch it below. Some serious pitching took place, range, depth, and tone all the boxes… Toads Suck is a place and Blake knows of it. He chose…Adam Levine. His reason was based on Adam’s fair criticism.
Implied that they’d be on Social Media: Selkii Not shown tonight.
