Team Blake picked up a non-country singer.
Night two of the Blind Auditions had season 12 coaches Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton and Alicia Keys getting serious about their turn strategies. Keys said she’s looking to support young artists, while Stefani and Levine are both looking for singers with strong artistry from a range of genres. Shelton is looking to hold down the strong country sound that has led his team to the finals so often.
Figure skating coach Autumn Turner was the first artist to audition, singing “Last Dance” by Donna Summer, saying that The Voice might be her last chance to change her life by taking her passion for music to the next level. Levine turned first, impressed by her early runs. Stefani turned once Turner hit the upbeat chorus, followed by Keys and Shelton. “The grace, and the soul, and everything about you rarely comes around,” Levine told Turner. Stefani admitted that she doesn’t even have the same vocal abilities as Turner. Turner ended up joining Team Alicia, which was the right choice.
Professional musician Jesse Larson came to The Voice after a lull in his career. He sang “Jealous Guy” by John Lennon and played electric guitar, getting an early turn from Levine. He ended up being the only coach to turn, so Larson joined Team Adam by default.
