The Voice 2012: Blind Auditions Episode 5 Recap
The Voice 2012 continued the Blind Auditions Tuesday night and the coaches, well most of the coaches, continued to build their teams.
An hour shorter than the night before, there were fewer acts for us to hear, but what we did hear included some great singers. Let’s take a look at the standouts of the night now.
Collin McLoughlin. This guy decided to leave school behind to pursue his real dream of music and I think it’s a safe bet to say he made the right choice. His version of “Wild World” was smooth and effortless and he seems like an incredibly genuine person. Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine were all on board for Collin and he ended up going with Team Adam.
Joselyn Rivera. This 17-year-old’s version of Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” caught the attention of Christina Aguilera and Blake. I wasn’t completely on board with the performance, but I’ve definitely heard worse auditions. I feel like the song was a bit demanding for her and that I’ll probably like her better when she sings something a bit slighter. She decides to join Team Christina.
Benji. At first I was all, OK, he’s too cool for a lat name. Then when he started singing “Knocking On Heaven’s Door” I was like, OK, he really is too cool for a last name. I loved his performance. He has a great tone and somehow manages to make his voice be both rough and smooth. I don’t even know how that’s possible. I look forward to hearing more of this guy. Benji picks Adam over Cee Lo.
Mycle Wastman. Not that this has anything to do with anything, but I was amazed that this guy was 40 years old. He looked so much younger. But anyway, his version of “Let’s Stay Together” was soulful and as smooth as honey. Another great performance. I’m not sure if I was into his performance or Benji’s more. This time around Cee Lo beats out Adam and Blake.Subscribe for Free to The Voice spoilers & updates on Facebook, Email, or Twitter
