Blind Auditions From The Voice

Do you have a favorite, feel-good television?

When I’m ready to unwind, I turn on The Voice! I’ve been a fan since its inception! Are there any other Voice fans among us?

India Carney – New York State Of Mind

For those of you unfamiliar with the show, talented contestants of all ages perform – sight unseen – before a panel of celebrity judges who decide, based on what they hear, if they want the contestant on their team. Once they press their button, they can turn the chair and watch the performance – and then, the contestant gets to choose which judge (if they were lucky enough to turn multiple chairs) they will choose for their coach.

Sawyer Fredericks – I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow

Watching the dynamics between the judges is a hoot – but that’s only part of the fun. Once the teams are picked, there are battle rounds and coach steals, before the live television voting even begins!

Corey Wickline – He Stopped Loving Her Today

Based on the preliminary blind auditions, I am looking forward to another exciting season!
I thought I’d share a few of my favorite auditions with you this week (mind you, this is only a few – there have been some talented performances to date!)

Who are your favorites so far? Be sure to leave a comment – I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Corey Kent White – Chicken Fried

Enjoy the music and have a wonderful week!

Monday’s often get the short end of the stick

    I am ready to be inspired. Your party is a good way to start the week – thank you for hosting. I am so grateful for the invite. Have a splendid new week!

    • Charlotte, I’m so glad you are joining us each week! There are always so many wonderful contributors and contributions…
      Have a wonderful week and thanks for taking the time to chat!

  5. We have been watching Voice since the first series and love everyone, they always have such great talent and of course love the coaches, Im liking this combination this season, they work well off each other. I know he is young and very naive but Im thinking Sawyer has a good chance at staying for a good long time.

    Thanks for hosting, hope you have a great week!
    Karren @Oh My Heartsie Girl

    • I think Sawyer will go far. I love those 4 chair turns! I love watching the coach interaction just about as much as I enjoy watching the talent!

      Have a great week and thanks for sharing your Voice thoughts!

  6. stevebethere says:

    I don’t mind watching the voice we have just got passed the blind auditions here in the UK

    I quite like Britain’s Got Talent 🙂

    Have a voicetastic week 🙂

    • We are about to close the blind auditions and move into the battle rounds in the US!

      The battle rounds are actually both thrilling and heartbreaking for me. Thrilling because you see some of the best performances of the season there – but heartbreaking because, invariably, you always lose someone you think should move forward.

      The coaches don’t always get it right – thankfully there are the steals – can’t wait to see what this season holds!

  7. Robin @ The Golden Rule Kids says:

    Thanks so much for having and hosting this party every week!

  8. Thanks for the party Ramona! I have not watched the Voice before, I think I need to check it out, my 7 year old son would probably enjoy it too as he loves to sing. Have a wonderful week 🙂

    • Joy, I hope you get a chance to check it out – it’s so much fun!
      I just watched a preview of one of the upcoming battle rounds with another one of the guys that I liked –
      If you check it out, be sure to let me know what you think! 🙂

  9. Thanks for hosting. I like the journal and the friends coffee cup card. And, I’ve started to watch the voice a little and that Sawyer kid can really sing. Hope he does well.

    Have a great week.

  10. Meryl says:

    Have a great week!

  11. Joyce says:

    Auditioning on that show would be quite nerve racking.

  12. thanks a lot for hosting.
    Have a Great week!

  13. Ashleigh says:

    Happy Monday and thank you for hosting! Have a wonderful week ahead! xx Ashleigh @SimplyWright

  14. I’m always honored to have my humble artwork featured in your blog. Blessings!

  15. Naila Moon says:

    Man those folks have got some lungs but I have to go with India Carney right now!
    Great picks to start off Monday!

  16. We started watching The Voice last season and sorta got hooked on it. Mostly, it was the judges interactions that won me over because in the past I never thought they had near the talent on the show to draw me in, but I’m finding I now prefer The Voice over AI. Talk about a switch-a-roo! Anywho, I think of the your high lighted picks ~ India and Corey show tremendous promise in the competition and it’ll be fun to see how far they go.

    • Season 1 was limited but it has just grown from there! I also love watching the judges interact – that makes it so much fun!

      I thought India stood out among the women and wasn’t Corey fun?

      I could have easily doubled the amount of picks I featured – but then I’d need another post!
