The Voice premiered February 24, 2020 at 8 p.m. Eastern on NBC. The show airs Mondays for two hours, starting at 8 p.m. Eastern.
Here’s what we know about the contestants so far:
The 16 year old St. John native sang “Use Somebody” and got a turn from Clarkson. Then Jonas turned as Legend smiled. She played the keyboard along with her song. John Legend said she was too young and had control issues with her voice. Clarkson spoke about how she lit a fire in her and said she did a beautiful job and that she was going to fight Jonas. The singer picked Jonas who said she’d be a “real threat” in the competition.
This 22 year old college aged singer got a turn from Legend within seconds of opening his mouth to sing. His mother began to cry. He sung “Earned It” by The Weeknd. Shelton also turned for the singer. Clarkson talked about how talented he was and that he was going to pick Legend. Nick said some stuff about how he might have a good time with Shelton. Then the judges sanf Happy Birthdsay to him, but forgot his name. Clarkson was wearing a beaded and sequined pant suit and lost control of herself laughing about the fact that no one knew the singer’s name. Jonas told Cammwess that Shelton would be “his man” for having beer. He went with Legend.
The California native had an “old school” voice that made her sound a bit weathered. Shelton blocked Jonas to steal the country singer. Legend said that her tone was “super duper cool.” Timeless country rock. Welcome top team Blake.
The Baton Rouge native got a turn from Jonas and Clarkson. Legend opined that he heard some pitch issues. Then Shelton also agreed and said, “who cares?” Then Jonas told her that his favorite music to write is country and he said that he’d find coaching her exciting. Then Shelton and Jonas hugged and Shelton gave Jonas a wet kiss on the side of his neck which caused Jonas to react in bodily horror. Collins chose Clarkson.
The classically trained cellist from Long Island was rejected by all the judges because her voice was not totally great and she relied on the cello as a “trick,” said Shelton.
The 17 year old Virginia Beach native is a country singer and is supporting herself singing for tips. She sang 10 words before Clarkson turned. She sang “Take It On the Run” by REO Speedwagon. Two judges turned and Clarkson got up in her jumpsuit to give her a round of applause. Shelton blocked the two other judges. This audition was a big deal because it contained two commercial breaks within it.
Corrie a California native got one turn from Shelton. No one else thought that he put any spirit into his singing. But he went with Shelton. Shelton believed in the lack of spirit this gentleman had and now “the rest is up to [Shelton and Jamal] to put that thing together.”
The New York singer gave a breathy performance of H.E.R.’s “Hard Place.” No one turned.
This 20 year old singer came to The Voice to sing the blues and talk about how his mother left him. He’s been playing in bars and restaurants since he was 11 years old. The singer sung “Lie to Me” and he seemed very theatrical. He seemed to be screaming at the top of his lungs throughout the song. No one turned.
The Hawaiian got a three chair turn before he reached the refrain of “Blackbird.” He got the final turn from Shelton. Legend heard the magic in the tone of Thunderstorm. And Thunderstorm felt the magic in Legend and picked that judge to be his coach.
