Season nine of NBC’s The Voice rolled on Monday, with the third night of blind auditions. Fourteen more acts (including the season’s first duo!) took the stage hoping to land one of the remaining spots in the Top 48. If you missed any of Monday’s episode, here’s who won over coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams, as well as some statistics you might not know.
Adam now has seven of his 12 artists, while Blake and Pharrell have eight. Gwen, who picked up several artists last Tuesday, slowed down on Monday and is also tied at eight. Below are the singers who made it through on Monday, with the results of their auditions in parentheses. Click any of the links to watch their blind auditions:
5. Amanda Ayala, “Mississippi Queen” (turned 3 chairs, Adam, Pharrell & Blake)
6. Manny Cabo, “Here I Go Again” (turned 4 chairs)
7. Cassandra Robertson, “Ghost” (turned 1 chair)
6. Morgan Frazier, “I Want You to Want Me” (turned 2 chairs, Gwen & Blake)
7. Chris Crump, “Thinking Out Loud” (turned 4 chairs)
8. Tyler Dickerson, “Hard to Handle” (turned 1 chair)
7. Jeffery Austin, “Lay Me Down” (turned 1 chair)
8. Lyndsey Elm, “Lips Are Movin” (turned 4 chairs)
5. Madi Davis, “It’s Too Late” (turned 2 chairs)
6. Riley Biederer, “Invincible” (turned 1 chair)
7. Daria Jazmin, “Dear Future Husband” (turned 3 chairs, Gwen, Pharrell & Blake)
8. Jubal and Amanda, “Seven Bridges Road” (turned 2 chairs, Gwen & Pharrell)
By The Numbers:
Jubal and Amanda are the first duo to audition for season 9. Though The Voice has always been open to duos, the number of them has dwindled since the early seasons when they didn’t find much success. The most successful duo in the show’s history is Team Blake’s The Swon Brothers, who were the third-place act in season four, but they’re the only pair ever to make it to the finals.
This episode featured two different Meghan Trainor songs in two separate auditions – by Lyndsey Elm and Daria Jazmin. Trainor has also performed both “Lips Are Movin” and “Dear Future Husband” on The Voice as a musical guest, and previously served as the battle rounds advisor for Team Blake.
Every coach picked up a defaulted (one-chair) artist on Tuesday, and everyone but Pharrell also collected a four-chair artist.
That also makes this the third consecutive episode with three four-chair auditions to be aired during the episode. It’s the first that doesn’t open with a four-chair turn, but every episode in season 9 has so far ended with a four-chair audition.
Adam pushed his button for 5/14 acts on Monday night, while Blake wanted 7/14 (including three consecutive singers), and there was a tie for most active coach between Pharrell and Gwen. Pharrell pushed for 8/14 and Gwen was also 8/14.
If you remove the three unsuccessful auditions from the count, that means Pharrell and Gwen were both involved in battling for nearly every singer on Monday – 8 of the 11, or a whopping 72.7 percent.
The Voice continues tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
