'The Voice': Blind Auditions Part Four [Recap & Video] - Guardian Liberty Voice


On The Voice tonight, the Blind Auditions Part Four took place as the four coaches scrambled to shape their teams and try to get the most talented singers possible. When they have their teams set, after just one more night of auditions, the coaches will then have the agonizing job of trying to decide which of their team members to keep and which to let go off during the Battle Rounds , when members of the same teams will go in head-to-head competition against each other.

As usual, Carson Daly introduced the four coaches, Pharrell Williams, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stafani and Adam Levine. Then, the first competitor to take the sage on The Voice was Katriz Trinidad, 15, who sang the Etta James classic At Last .

The second person to perform on The Voice was Ethan Butler, who sang Beneath Your Beautiful . Ethan did a great job singing, getting the audience in to the song and clapping along. He managed to get two of the coaches to press their buttons and turn their chairs for him, Blake and Adam. Ethan did not have to think about it for very long before he said “I pick…Adam!”

Then, the third competitor up on The Voice was Tanner Linford, who chose to sing When You Say Nothing At All . He sounded fantastic, but only Blake turned his chair around. Tanner automatically went to Team Blake.

Roem Baur, 37, was the fourth person to perform on The Voice . He sang Oh, Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison. “If I turn a chair today, I know I’m a rocker,” he said. As soon as he began singing and playing the guitar, the audience applauded and then clapped along a she sang. He did a really good job singing this classic, but none of the coaches turned around for him.

Adam said “Listen, man, Roy Orbison is one of the greatest ever.”

Blake said “I thought he was trying to do Roy’s vibrato too much and that’s what threw me off.”
