Week 2 of NBC’s The Voice came to a close and another week is in the books for judge Blake Shelton, and the competition is getting FIERCE! He added some more amazing talent to his roster this week. Check out who became apart of Team Blake in week two.
Bree Fondacaro “It Ain’t Me Babe”
Bree comes from Orange Country, California and is going to be an interesting asset to Team Blake. Her voice is raspy, yet brings about true emotion. This was a surprise pick from Blake for me, but I’m interested to see what they come up with working together!
John Martin “Sweet Pea”
This song started off with him whistling, so I instantly thought “Day Drinking” by Little Big Town – who are going to be Team Blake’s mentors this season – so he already fit on to the team! I thought John’s voice was very soulful and had even a little bit of a jazz appeal. I’m excited to see what Blake and John are going to do together; hopefully more than “cheesy love songs.”
Kensington Moore “Run Loves Out”
Kensington is going to bring more of a “rock and roll” vibe to Blake’s team. She has a more edgy and raspy voice than a sweet, rolling voice. With the right songs from her coach, she is definitely a threat to the others in the competition.
Tanner Linford “When You Say Nothing at All”
Another season 6 return has made an astounding comeback, earning a spot on Team Blake. At 17 years old, Tanner has a solid, soulful sound. Many of the judges thought he was a girl while singing … could that bring him some extra leverage in the competition? We will have to wait and see!
Craig Wayne Boyd “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’”
Craig has a sound that reminds me a lot of the 90’s country music artists. Travis Tritt, to be exact. He was also very comfortable in his stage presence, which gives him a leg up in the competition already. Will he bring some old school 90’s love back to country music? We will soon find out.
Grant Ganzer “Unaware”
At just 16 years, Grant has a powerhouse of a voice and is going to bring a more soulful feel to Team Blake. This was a different choice for Blake Shelton, but he seems to be taking chances on these young artists and different genres this season!
Week 2 of The Voice is now under our belt! Any shockers? Any new favorites?
