'The Voice': Blind Auditions - Part 7

Amanda Brown - The Voice

With only 12 spots remaining on the four teams, the coaches are looking for something very special in their remaining spots.

Sylvia Yacoub traveled a long way to appear on “The Voice” stage; all the way from Alexandria, Egypt where the opportunities for women are few.  Of the four coaches only Adam did not push his button for Sylvia.  Sylvia chose Christina for her coach.

Country boy and North Carolina pig farmer IJ failed to turn any chairs.  IJ has a high voice and the coaches were convinced that IJ was a girl. 

Charlie Rey took on the Michael Buble hit “Home” and got Adam and Blake to turn their chairs.  Blake liked the vibrato in Charlie’s voice; even saying that Charlie was a bit like Buble.  Adam thought Charlie’s voice had a refined quality to it.  Charlie chose Blake to be his coach.

Like many singers Amanda Brown grew up singing in the church but when she discovered Radiohead, all of that changed; but only Cee Lo turned his chair for Amanda.

Saying she was there to represent, 55 year old Yolanda Barber – one the show’s oldest contestants – took on another Yolanda…Yolanda Adams for her audition.  While Yolanda had been performing on cruise ships, she failed to turn any of the coach’s chairs even though Adam thought the performance was amazing.  Christina admitted to “almost” pushing her button several times.

Former rock band member Cassadee Pope finished up the night’s performances.  Since the breakup of her band – Hey Monday – Cassadee is turning her attention to being a solo artist.  Cassadee became the first singer to turn all four coach’s chairs in over a week; Adam, Blake, and Christina turned their chairs almost at the same time with Cee Lo joining them later.  Adam called Cassadee amazing.  Christina said Cassadee could do it all.  Cee Lo called it a wonderful performance.  Blake noted that there was nobody like Cassadee, believing she is a superstar.  Cassadee chose Blake to be her coach.

With the addition of the singers on Tuesday’s audition show, all four coaches have 14 singers on their teams.
