'Voice' Blind Auditions: Shane Q Sings Chris Stapleton's 'Tennessee Whiskey,' Gets 4-Chair Turn
On Tuesday's episode of "The Voice," one contestant got the first four-chair turn for a powerful rendition of "Tennessee Whiskey."
On Tuesday's episode of "The Voice," the first contestant, Shane Q, a bus driver for special-needs people, wowed the judges to secure the first four-chair turn.
In a Twitter video post shared by NBC with the caption, "We'll never tire of a 4-chair turn," the contestant gave a powerful rendition of "Tennessee Whiskey," by Chris Stapleton, and the new addition to the judges' chair, Gwen Stefani, had a "Wow" reaction when she heard Shane's voice for the first time.
Blake Shelton may not have won season 16 of the voice, but he is still the greatest of all times
Stefani pointed to country music singer, and her partner, Blake Shelton to turn around first, but when he didn't oblige, she turned herself around. A minute into the performance, Kelly Clarkson joined her co-judge, and Shelton followed her.
John Legend waited till after the performance before joining his fellow judges. He opened the comments, telling the contestant,
"You've got a lot of gospel flavours and run-ins. You started hitting all the right notes, and it was so much fun."
Stefani pointed out that she turned first, after which she commented on the Sacramento native's ability to switch voices. The singer's man took up the comment by reading an excerpt from a news article about him. It read,
"Blake Shelton may not have won season 16 of the voice, but he is still the greatest of all times."
The rest of the night went in favour of the Legend, Stefani, and Clarkson, with Shelton receiving the short end of the stick
The country singer has won the competition six times, but Clarkson reacted to the news article with a question to Shane. She asked,
"Do you want it to be all about the coach or all about you?"
The question seemed to resonate with the contestant because after the back and forth between the judges, Shane Q chose Clarkson. The rest of the night went in favour of Legend, Stefani, and Clarkson, with Shelton receiving the short end of the stick.
However, at the end of the second episode, the "God's Country," singer found his man. 24-year-old Cory Jackson, from Jonesboro, Arkansas, chose the singer to be his coach. Shelton happy with the pick said about the country farmer,
"I can't wait to work with this guy, and figure out where he wants to go as an artist."
"The Voice" airs weekdays on NBC at 8 ET.
