'The Voice' Season 3, Episode 2 Video Recap - Blind Auditions #2
The second night of the blind auditions was just as exciting as the first, bringing some more impressive singers to the stage. Who wowed the coaches and which team did they end up joining? Check out the audition videos below to find out!
Sometimes a singer on "The Voice" will come out and perform a pop song much better than the original singer. Adriana did just that with "Domino," and managed to turn all four coaches. The Brooklyn singer's backstory involved a robbery, which is a strange tragedy to bring to the show, but maybe it'll help her connect with voters going forward. In any case, her strong vocals will fit with Christina well.
You didn't even have to hear Casey sing to tell that he was going to end up on Blake's team. The cowboy getup was enough. But his even more countrified version of "Sweet Home Alabama" impressed both Blake and Cee Lo, so Casey had his pick. You can't take the country out of the country boy, though, and Casey should be right at home with Blake.
Team Cee Lo
A creative cover? Better call Cee Lo! Though "Pumped Up Kicks" is known more for its catchy hook than its vocal possibilities, Mackenzie still managed to turn it into a winning song as his acoustic guitar cover turned Cee Lo's chair after some deliberation. That's a big win for young Mackenzie, who was hospitalized with congestive heart failure just last year.
It's inevitable that a one-named singer comes along in this competition, and the odds of him/her ending up on Team Christina are pretty high. Aquile landed there with ease, impressing both Christina and Adam right off the bat with his lovely rendition of "Your Song." If there was one word for Aquile, it would be "smooth."
Julio Cesar Castillo
You might not have expected to tear up when Julio Castillo hit the stage singing "La Bamba," but there's a decent chance that you did by the end of his audition. His rendition of the classic Richie Valens song was a lot of fun and turned Blake immediately, but when Julio broke into a mariachi song, "El Rey," and his parents teared up... well, it was a pretty great moment. Hopefully the language barrier doesn't get in Julio's way, as he has a terrific voice.
