Ok everyone – because of some technological issues, I’m late getting the recap of the final blind audition night. Since it’s going to end up being combined with the first night of the battle rounds, I’m just going to summarize it so this recap isn’t forever long.
Ok, our next video is…sorry, just reminiscing.
First up is Natalie Hernandez. I love how Carson acts so interested when he has mentally gone to his happy place where TRL is still on. Natalie missed prom to attend the auditions. She sings ‘White Horse’ and does a pretty good job at. She even sounds a lot like Taylor Swift. Adam, Blake and Christina turn around. I thought Blake would be the obvious winner, but for some reason Natalie chooses Christina. What 15 year old girl wouldn’t pick Adam or Blake? This brings team Christina to 15 people.
Next we meet Rod Michael. I’ve always lived by the whole ‘Never trust someone with two first names’. I continue to feel that way. Rod was in a boy band in Europe named B3. Nobody in the United States knew him so he crashed and burned. I find his haircut ridiculous, so I was sidetracked during his singing of ‘Please don’t go’. Between the hair and the bad 90’s dance moves, I was praying for the performance to end. Cee-lo gives him some bullshit about the song not letting him take charge. He strangely flirts with Adam before walking off stage.
Caitlin Michele has used music to help her overcome a panic disorder. She didn’t want to turn to drugs to cope with it. Instead, music is her medicine. No offense, but popping a Xanax wouldn’t hurt. She sings ‘Cosmic Love’. What in the hell is up with the mustache on her brother? Does he think he’s a circus performer in the 1940’s? Blake seems to be the only one turning around until Adam hits his button at the last minute. It’s bleeped out, but I believe Blake called Adam ‘Mother-Fucker’. They both kiss Caitlin’s ass, but Christina recommends Adam if she wants something riskier. Caitlin goes with Adam, whose team is now at 15 people.
Nicole Johnson wrote her first song at age 7. I feel that my kids are kind of slacking. My son is 6 and I was impressed that he’s reading chapter books. If I asked him to write a song, it would probably involve some kind of bodily function. Nicole’s family moved to Nashville so she could follow her dream. She sings ‘Mr. Know-It-All’. Cee-lo and Blake turn around. Does it bother anyone else when the audience claps in unison; or when they sway back and forth? You know that that there is some big-ass sign telling them to do it and it just looks really cheesy. Anyway, Nicole put a country twist on the song, so she of course goes with Blake. Team Blake is also at 15 people.
We get a brief glimpse of Kameron Corvet, who is a middle school French teacher. He sings ‘Crazy’, but nobody turns around.
