The Voice 4: Blind Auditions Part 3

Why do I feel like Nashville decided to audition this year? TOO. MUCH. COUNTRY. But what do I know? No disrespect to the genre because I like some country music, but I need variety!

As for the contestants, they were mostly fine, but just like every other The Voice episode, it was all about the judges and I thought they somehow carried the show pretty well. To be fair, I saw a couple of interesting singers in this episode.

Anyway, here's how the contestants did in this episode.

The Swon Brothers
American Girl
Can I say generic? Sure, I quite enjoyed their performance, but I didn't think they brought anything different to it. Oh, and fun fact, Colton Swon was an American Idol Season 7 reject. Just so you know. 6/10

Taylor Beckham
I'm Going Down
Ugh. There's something annoying and shrill about her tone - it reminded me of Cassadee Pope's high pitched tone - and I felt like she didn't do the song any justice. Her voice just didn't have the soul to pull it all off. 4/10

Karina Iglesias
I'm The Only One
Eh. I wanted to like her, but she was WAY too screechy for my taste and it didn't compare favorably to some of the version I've heard before. 4.5/10

Garrett Gardner
Seven Nation Army
I'd give him extra points for the song choice, but I'd probably take it back for the strange arrangement and affectations. 5/10

Holly Tucker
To Make You Feel My Love
Holly Mother Tucker! She has a beautiful tone with some great vocal control, although her style was a bit Broadway for me. Still, she probably is one of the best singers tonight. 7/10

Michelle Chamuel
I Kissed A Girl
Very nice. I seriously enjoyed that. I love her voice, I thought the arrangement worked perfectly with the whole nerd power angle, and I can see her progress from nerdy to serious alternative rock force. Her journey should be fun to watch. 8/10

Monique Abbadie
She sure was a firecracker and I appreciated her song choice, but I don't know. She just hits middle ground for me. Not yet sold. 6.5/10

Warren Stone
Colder Weather
I thought Warren did a nice job with this. I was a little iffy with his lower register as it needed a fuller sound with those notes, but that was just me nitpicking. I have a funny feeling he will go deep into this competition. 7.5/10

Uhh ohh. I was expecting you'd like Loca girl. HAHA For me, the best tonight I don't know why. Maybe she's (so far) the most dangerous on Team Shakira! HAHA
