Hi there, friends! I’m so excited that The Voice is back becuase it gives me something to look forward to on Monday nights until The Bachelorette begins in a few months. Do you watch? I’m always super impressed with the talent and hearing some of the triumphant stories of overcoming obstacles to pursue dreams. I usually end up downloading a bunch of songs on iTunes after the show, and this past Monday I was also pleasantly pleased with the performance the four coaches did to kick off the show, including the two newbies: Shakira and Usher. I do miss Cee-Lo (and his animals), though; he’s such a character!
Here are some of my favorite performances from the first week of blind auditions:
The one that gave me chills (for all the 90’s kids!):
Monday night’s live show performances on The Voice were pretty spectacular — did you watch? In case you’ve missed them, here are some of my most memorable performances fromt this season so far:
Blind Auditions: Nicole Nelson smooth “Hallelujah” was the first song from this season that I downloaded on iTunes (which, by the way, iTunes downloads of the songs they perform on the Live Shows now count towards votes for the remaining contestants).
Trevin Hunte came out swinging and became an easy fan and coach favorite with his powerful ballad “Listen.”
Amanda Brown & Trevyn Hunt’s duet version of “Vision of Love” had me reminiscing of my Mariah-loving days (let’s be real: I still do)…and I’ve been horribly belting out this tune ever since their show-stopping performance.
Loren Allred’s performance of “You Know I’m No Good” was incredible but sadly, it eliminated one of my favorites, Nicole Nelson.
Live Show 1:
Amanda Brown’s crazy good “Dream On” cover had all the jaws dropped and all the blogs abuzz. Seriously insane how good/how good lookin’ this lady is.
