Keep locked on this page, The Voice Season 9 September 21, 2015 Premiere Episode recap and videos will be added below. Meanwhile, music sensation and style icon Gwen Stefani will make a return for her second instalment after a season hiatus. She gets everyone but Adam to hit their button.
Night one of the Blind Auditions showcased an vast range of talent, with artists from all different levels of experience fighting to stand out. Let’s take a look at how each contestant did throughout the night. But vocally, singing Bill Withers’s “Use Me“, Mark wasn’t all that spectacular.
Blake Shelton has coached four Voice winners, which is fitting since the man has 14 #1 hits on the country music circuit. The judges commented on his great energy and unbelievable jazz notes.
“I had no idea that I was going to be asked back!” Gwen Stefani and Pharrell eventually turned around too!
“Gwen’s gettin’ kinda cocky, isn’t she?”
Semple is another Chicago native but was originally from Northern Ireland. We’ll be blogging it right here for you. He had oodles of personality – I warmed to him before he even opened his mouth to sing – and he was a fun, vivacious performer.
Sheridan, a 20-year-old San Diego native, put nursing school on hold in order for her to be on the Blind Auditions. But interestingly, when the coaches sang each other’s songs during the premiere’s opening number, Blake did croon the Gwen-penned No Doubt breakup ballad “Don’t Speak“, which surely must’ve had some personal meaning for him, given his current situation.
Alyssa performed with her guitar. “But she should be”, said coach Pharrell Williams. The judges praised that she was fresh, new, and something special. We hear the voices of some of the artists, but none of their faces. Country crooner Brad Paisley will mentor Blake Shelton’s team. Now she’s a personal banker who wants her daughter to know that her mommy worked hard for her. The only thing the viewers knew was the song choice, which was Chandelier by Sia. At the very last possible moment, both Pharrell and Gwen turn their chairs.
Gwen described it as the “wackiest, turn around, Blind Audition” after seeing the 24-year-old Kentucky native. Gwen says he looks nothing like his voice and Pharrell says that’s what makes him better.
Setting that aside, talk naturally turns to whether Adam or Gwen believe they have a chance to win this season.
Rihanna will most likely play the same role as Reba McEntire in Season 8, who sat in on rehearsal sessions for each team and gave them advice to help them win, global Business Times reported.
The next artist goes by Dr. Paul and is a 66-year-old veteran and musician.
