If you missed last week’s episodes you can read our full and detailed recaps here -> Part 4 and Part 5.
On last night’s show the Voice’s fourth and fifth blind audition rounds premiered. These were, by far, the worst audition rounds of the season. No-one, except Avery Wilson, made our eyes twinkle with excitement. The most notable performance was from 16-year-old phenom Avery Wilson who spuns four coaches around with his “Without You.” Avery grew up in a family of dancers and when he was seven, his father realized that he was really a singer. Avery felt like he owed this one to his dad who recognized his talent.
Adam loved Avery and could not believe that Avery was 16, he thought he was beyond his years. Christina could tell that he had had no singing lessons, she remarked you cannot teach him what he had. Blake hit his button out of absolute respect for his vocal abilities. Cee Lo showered him with compliments; he was humbled and inspired and felt that even he could become even better if he worked with him. Avery chooses Cee Lo.
Here are how the teams look so far – Team Christina – De’borah, Devyn DeLoera, Adriana Louise, Aquile, Nelly’s Echo, Lisa Scinta, MarissaAnn, Beat Frequency, PaulinaPaulina and Joselyn Rivera.
