The Voice Season 4 Blind Auditions: Our 10 Favorites (VIDEOS)
Season 4 of The Voice is long gone and Team Blake Shelton has taken home yet another trophy thanks to Texas teen Danielle Bradbery. But that won’t stop us from looking back on this season’s incredible talent.
It all started back in March 2013 with the blind auditions. Hundreds of hopefuls took to The Voice stage hoping to get that coveted button push from at least one coach. Many got all four. Here are our picks for favorite blind auditions:
Unlike past seasons where Lindsey Pavao and Melanie Martinez reigned supreme, Season 4 did not belong to the eclectic sounds of coffee shop singers. Caroline Glaser was the perfect example of this. After an ethereal rendition of “Tiny Dancer,” Caroline joined Team Blake and then was stolen by Team Adam in the live shows.
Though Holly made it far in the competition, none of her performances compared to her moving blind audition. She sang the well-known tune perfectly and after being turned away in past years, managed to get a four-chair turn.
Season 4 was lousy with country artists thanks to Blake Shelton, but Grace had a bluesy vibe added to her country sound that was the essence of cool. Strumming her chrome guitar with one hand and sporting a giant hair bump, Grace took us back to a classic era. She was one of the handful of artists who was gone too early, but we won’t soon forget this audition.
Starting off her Voice career on a sweet note, winner Danielle Bradbery took to The Voice stage and belted out this hit tune without a single bad note or shake of nerves. And though it was the largest audience Danielle had ever performed in front of, her audition went off without a hitch.
Though she went on to sing a variety of genres, Sasha started off The Voice with this Dixie Chicks classic. Her soulful spin on the tune made it unforgettable, and she ended up going all the way to the Top 5 on Team Shakira.
This was our introduction to Sarah’s strange sound, and it captured our attention from the get go. The Team Adam artist has the ability to transition from grit and growl to unaffected vocals at the drop of a hat and her effortless transitions were mesmerizing.
Though there was some controversy over this particular arrangement, Christian’s folksy take on the pop song was a risky choice that paid off. Sadly he didn’t make it past his battle round against The Swon Brothers, but we’ll never forget this “sexy” tune.
Personally, we were shocked that this talented singer-songwriter left the competition so early, but we won’t soon forget her epic blind audition. She sang the Taylor Swift/Civil Wars’ song with a haunting quality that lingered long after she left the show.
As Usher’s final artist and one of the show’s last auditions, Jessica Childress’s adorable rendition of Bruno Mars’s “Marry You” had us falling in love with with her. Then she was brutally axed from the competition during the battle rounds and our lives were never the same.
