#VoiceBlinds is on its last night tonight. The coaches joke backstage and Adam makes poop jokes. Shannon and Whitney are sisters and the only duo auditioning this season. The sisters sing Stevie Nicks Landslide and get a four chair turn from all the coaches.
Adam says that collaboration was tough and they did it beautifully. Blake says they sound country and they drew him in. He says siblings can only do that and says he did it with the Swan Brothers and no one else has and says he’s a hard worker and would be honored to be their coach.
Alicia says it was beautiful and the world needs them. Alicia also woos them and says they are a beautiful example of the world she wants to create. Miley says she loves this song and it means so much to her. Shannon and Whitney go with Alicia.
Guy coaches go gaga for Goo Goo Dolls cover
Miami IT guy Johnny Rez who has struggled with sobriety is up next and he does Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. He plays his guitar and sings with a smooth rich voice. The coaches sit thinking and looking at one another. Adam and Blake turn together in the last moments.
Johnny is thrilled they turned. Adam says it was sneak attack. Adam says he needs some work on his falsetto and he’s the guy to help with that – Miley agrees. Adam says he’d love to have him on his team. Johnny says he loves country but covers Maroon 5 often.
Blake is excited. Miley says is it Mr Falsetto or Blake? Miley points to Adam. Johnny chooses Adam despite Blake shouting for him to pick him. Blake says he has cool hair, great pitch but the wrong coach. Adam has three spots left on his team now.
Funky chick Maye draws Adam and Miley
Maye Thomas is up next and her dad is a country deejay. She sings Roses by The Chainsmokers. Adam turns early on for her funky different voice. Miley turns when she picks up the pace. Miley gets up to dance totally digging the sound.
Adam tells Miley to zip it and let him talk then says her voice is different but still has to be good and says she went flat a couple of times and would be truthful as a coach. Miley says she loves that she jammed but wants to hear her do a song that’s not so current and is more about the voice.
Miley asks if she’s her coach and says she can make her the gothic Dolly Parton. Adam says he knows Maye will pick Miley and then, of course, she does and Miley is thrilled. Maye is so excited and she says Adam never had a prayer.
Country singer gets crushed
Johnny Hayes is up next and he’s the child of musician parents who pushed him to pursue his education but he moved to Nashville anyway and joined a band. Johnny sings Traveller by Chris Stapleton. Blake and Miley are both very attentive to the country song but no chairs turn.
Adam says a lot of it was good but there were some issues but he has a good voice. Miley says he’s so close. Alicia says his voice would shine if the song was more about him and he should strip it back. Blake goes to shake his hand and offers a hug.
The judges all greet him warmly and Alicia says this is hard and Miley says she hates that part. Blake says Johnny should come back again but with so few spots, he’s waiting for something really special for his team.
Alicia vs Blake for soulful singer
Adam mocks Blake who hasn’t scored an artist yet. Next up is Courtney Harrell who’s a songwriter in LA who has written for Neyo, Mary J Blige and many others. Courtney sings Let It Go from James Bay. Blake is first to turn for her. Alicia turns pounding on her button. She yells at Adam to turn too.
She says it’s the first time she sang publicly in 15 years. Blake says she has a brilliant voice. He says she has mad respect for her voice – Adam says he’s never said that before. Blake says he believes in her. Alicia says she feels her soul and she calls her a dedicated, beautiful loving woman.
Adam says he has to know who she picks as her coach. Her mom yells for her to pick Blake. Courtney chooses Blake and he’s thrilled. Alicia is stunned. Courtney says he respects true artistry and she trusts that. Blake is shocked and thrilled and Alicia asks how that happened. Adam calls it amazing.
Final spots narrow to five
Blake added another country artist, Tarra Layne, Miley got Charity Bowden, a country artist. Adam scored JSoul, an R&B artists and indie artist Belle Jewel went to Alicia. That leaves five slots left among the judges. Kylie Rothfield’s audition is next.

Blake tells him to hush. Miley thanks her for being amazing and says she’d love to see her with Blake or Alicia.
Blake says she had him from the start and then mocks Alicia for being new but says he’d be a rock for her. Alicia makes her pitch then Kylie has to choose between them. Kylie says she respects both of them and then goes with Alicia. Blake goes to hug her. That takes Alicia’s last team slot.

Optician doesn’t see eye to eye with judges
Miley mocks Blake who sings one of her songs at him. Nicholas Ray is an optician who aspires to be a full-time musician and sings in a wedding band. He hopes to land Adam as a coach. Nick sings I’ve Got the Music in Me by Kiki Dee.
The song did not showcase his voice very well. Adam says it didn’t get there for him and then the last thing was flawless so it’s confusing. Miley says they loved the moment at the end and Blake says it felt loungey and Nick admits he’s a wedding singer.
They encourage him and offer feedback and tell him how to come back and get a chair turn next time. Nick heads backstage to hug his BF Braxton and seems positive about how it went. Adam says with just one spot left, he has to hold out.
