The Voice: The 11 Best Blind Auditions

Now that The Voice has completed its Blind Auditions for Season 12, we can see clearly a few things: 1. Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are that couple, the one that makes googly eyes at each other so much that other couples wonder whether they’re still demonstrative enough. 2. Adam Levine’s much-mocked sweater will go down in history as the most talked-about article of clothing since the white-gold/blue-black dress. And 3. some contestants are better than others — way better.

That being the case, as the NBC talent show reviews the tryouts with a two-hour special Wednesday (8/7c), TVLine has done, in essence, the same, ranking the 11 best Blind Auditioners from least- to most-promising. Of course, this countdown is completely subjective, so you are not only welcome but encouraged to weigh in on these picks with a list of your own.

    Reading your gallery only confirms my sense that this is not the greatest season, or maybe it confirms my sense that the show has to stop airing twice a year. The talent this year falls into very predictable categories, and apart from the twangy take on “Believe” and the bluesy take on Ariana Grande, hardly original. Bad news for a show (in)famous for failing to launch new talent.

    How did Chris Blue get ranked #2 when he only received a B grade?!

    • Charlie Mason says:

      Because although he (debatably) packed too many tricks into his audition performance, it still demonstrated what a kickass voice he has. When he doesn’t have to try to do it ALL in one song, he’s gonna be stellar. Plus, he definitely resonated with the audience. I took more heat for that one grade than I had since people realized I was at best a poor man’s Slezak. ;)

    Watching “The Best of the Blind’s” on Wednesday tonight, with a peek at the Battle-rounds, I think there is a lot of good entertainment here and some very good vocals……………………… “The Voice” has never pretended to be obsessively looking for an “American Idol” to sell multi-platinum albums and be on every TV awards show, etc…………… but gives nice exposure and a good resume to — 1.lucky Young singers that want to go beyond their local school plays….2..older guys and girls that been around in bands but never made the big-time yet ………….. 3. Back-up singers for some bigger names that want to try to see how they would sell on their own ………4…2nd chance for some artists that were once signed and had some previous degree of fame, like Billy Gilman, Alisan Porter, etc. I think the Battle-Rounds will be very good and the guest mentors, Celine Dion and Luke Bryan, etc,,, will be fun to watch :)

    Hey, where’s Autumn Turner (Last Dance figure skater) and J Chosen on your list? And Brandon Royal? There’s a lot of fine singers this season, and may the truly gifted prevail, instead of by-the-book-young-girl-mediocre-pop-singers-that-Blake-coaches that made me stop watching for awhile.

  6. Lizzie says:

    I found this season’s blinds to be mostly boring. And since I don’t like Gwen and Blake together, that is getting on my nerves as well.

  7. JennaM says:

    So far I’m not all that pumped for this season. We’ll see.

    Blake & Gwen . . . so annoying. Where’s Miley when you need her? :-)

  8. No way Kawan suppose to be off the show. Very disappointed in Alicia support. She knows talent, and conforming. He was by far the most talented person on the show….
