"The Voice" US Season 8 Blind Auditions part 4 ended on a high note with 13 of the 15 hopefuls, who hit the stage on Tuesday, making it to the next round. The NBC reality television show ended its second week of Blind Auditions with a total of 43 contestants qualifying for the Battle Rounds.
"The Voice" USA 2015 coaches - Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams, and Christina Aguilera – seemed to be overwhelmed by the hordes of talent, as they didn't turn their chairs for only two of them - Quincy Mumford and Jess Gallo – on Tuesday.
However, only contender managed to make all the coaches push their "I Want You" buttons, which could be seen as a sign of degradation of talents in the show. However, it is also possible that some of the coaches could have become choosy as the show progresses while some try to fill in their teams.
Ashley Morgan was the first to hit the stage on Tuesday. She made Pharrell and Blake turn their chairs with her rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)." She joined Team Pharrell.
Koryn Hawthorne took on the song, "My Kind of Love" by Emeli Sande. Pharrell and Christina pushed their buttons but she chose the latter as her coach. Christina also welcomed Katelyn Read (who sang, "Breathe (2 AM)") and Ameera Delandro (who performed "I'd Rather Go Blind") to her team.
Lexa Davila made Adam and Blake turn their chairs with her rendition of Selena's "Dreaming of You." She joined Team Adam. The duo (coaches) got into another fight for Josh Batstone, who sang "Amnesia" by 5 Seconds of Summer but Adam won again. Adam went on to get Johnny Cash (who sang "Ring of Fire") uncontested.
Brenna Yaeger sang Miranda Lambert's "The House That Built Me" and got Adam and Blake turn their chairs. She joined Blake as expected. He also got Bay Brooks, who sang "All of the Stars," uncontested.
Jeremy Gaynor was the next to take the stage. He got all the four chairs turned with his rendition of The Carpenters' "Superstar." He joined Team Christina.
Briar Jonnee set up a fight for Pharrell and Blake with her rendition of Rihanna's "Take a Bow." She chose Pharrell as her coach.
The next contender to hit the stage was Brian Johnson. His rendition of Rod Stewart's "Reason to Believe" made Adam and Blake to turn their chairs. He chose Blake as his coach. Blake defeated Pharrell in another fight for Corey Kent who performed Zac Brown Band's "Chicken Fried."
