Our Favorite Performances on Week One of ‘The Voice’ [VIDEOS]
I guess my Monday and Tuesday nights are booked for the next few months, because NBC's 'The Voice' is BACK! Three hours of blind auditions aired this week, and I am already stunned by this season's talent. I'm also in love with all the judges. Blake Shelton and Adam Levine are always great, but Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson are great additions to the show. Kelly is just so genuine and bubbly, I wish she could stay on permanently. Jennifer seems to be a little bit tougher than the other judges, but every competition show needs that. When she's impressed, you know the singer was GREAT.
The teams are pretty even right now, with Jennifer and Blake at four and Adam and Kelly at three. It's hard to choose a favorite at this point, but there are a few contestants that stood out to me. Let's start with Mikele Buck.
Mikele talked about his military history and shared the story of his veteran best friend who committed suicide. His story was heartbreaking, but he still went out there and NAILED his performance of Brooks & Dunn's "She Used to Be Mine," landing a spot on Team Kelly. His wife and daughter MAY have had something to do with his decision...
And then there was Kennedy Holmes! Her performance of Adele's "Turning Tables" was outstanding, especially considering the fact that she's THIRTEEN YEARS OLD. She ended up on Team J-Hud after getting to sing a duet with her.
DeAndre Nico chose Adam as his coach after a rare four-chair turn. His performance of "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars was obviously VERY impressive.
And finally, I have to give a shout out to Tyke James. The 17-year-old from Hawaii sang a fantastic rendition of Ed Sheeran's "Perfect," and I think he's going to be a huge hit with the ladies this season.
Like I said before, choosing my favorites was very difficult because everybody was so good. I could've picked at least four other artists to include in this blog! If you want to check out all of this week's performances, click HERE.
