AceShowbiz - As the Blind Auditions of "The Voice" season 12 is winding down, the coaches fought harder than ever to nab the best and talented singers on their teams. On Monday, March 13 episode of the show, Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine were impressed with one of that night's contestants Valerie Ponzio who performed "Ring of Fire" very beautifully.
The first contestant to take the stage on night 6 of the Blind Auditions was Kenny P. The 30-year-old Cleveland native sang Todd Rundgren's "Hello, It's Me". With a rad Captain Hook mustache and a hipster flair, he opened the performances that night. Although he displayed some inconsistency during his performance, Gwen and Blake wanted to give him a chance as they hit their buttons. Kenny P chose Gwen over her boyfriend to be his coach.
Enid Ortiz, 25, from Tampa performed "All I Ask" by Adele. She joined the show to try out her potential future in music. Enid sounded shaky in the first half of her performance, but she found her groove once she hit the chorus. Again, Gwen and Blake turned their chairs before Enid picked Blake.
Next up was R.J. Collins from Chicago. The 18-year-old singer performed Justin Bieber's "Purpose". R.J. only sang the first line of the song when Adam turned his chair for him. Alicia followed shortly after, impressed by his voice and determined to get the blues singer on her team. Although Adam praised him by dubbing his voice "winning voice", R.J. picked Alicia who was "ready for magic."
Austin Tyler Jones, 27, performed "Alison" by Elvis Costello. Unfortunately, the Columbia native failed to convince the coaches to hit their buttons. He didn't earn any chair turns from them.
Performing "Take Me to the River" by Talking Heads was TSoul. The 29-year-old soul singer from Richmond had been touring with his choir group and made living gigging across the world. His Stevie Wonder-style funk and cascading range work impressed Blake. Adam and Alicia couldn't help but turn their chairs for him. TSoul decided to join Team Blake.
Hanna Eyre, 15, from Laguna Niguel, took the stage to perform a unique version of "Blank Space" by Taylor Swift. She got a voice which sounded similar to Danielle Bradbery's. The other three coaches except Alicia turned their chairs for her. Adam desperately tried to make her join his team and much to his like, Hanna picked Adam.
The next singer to perform was Casey Jamerson, 26, from Pendleton. She sang a rock rendition of Pat Benatar's song "Shadows of the Night". Although she showcased her powerful voice throughout the performance, she sounded shaky in her delivery. No one turned their chairs for her.
Hunter Plake, 20, from Baton Rouge performed Fun.'s "Carry On". Gwen turned her chair right away after he started his performance, while Alicia hit her button when Hunter was about to end her song. Alicia dubbed him one of a kind, while Gwen tried to convince him that they would do something right if he chose her. Hunter, eventually, went to join Team Alicia.
Another contestant performed Adele's song from her Grammy-winning album "25". Nala Price, 17, from Sebring sang the British singer's "Send My Love (to Your New Lover)". It was quite a tricky song to perform, though Nala got Adam and Gwen turning almost simultaneously in the first half of her performance. Nala chose Adam to be her coach.
Sammie Zonana, 24, from Austin sang a fresh rendition of "Dangerous Woman" by Ariana Grande. The trained screenwriter turned the pop anthem to a more 90's sounding song. Her chic rock style suited Gwen, who was the only one turning her chair. Sammie went to Team Gwen by default.
Valerie Ponzio, 32, from El Paso came to the show to showcase her country singing skill. Performing Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire", she was the first contestant to get a four-chair turn that night. Adam showered her with a praise, hoping she would choose him despite knowing that she came from a country background. Just as expected, Valerie unsurprisingly chose Blake.
"The Voice" also showed a couple of montages at the end of the episode. One singer in the montage was Andrea Thomas, a former Carrie Underwood backup singer. She impressed Blake with her rendition of "Baby, Now that I've Found You" by The Foundations. Andrea joined Team Blake given the fact that the other coaches didn't turn their chairs. Another singer in the montage is Davine Leone who sang Sia's "Cheap Thrills". The YouTuber's performance got herself a spot in Team Gwen.
