Blake Shelton Completes ‘The Voice’ Team With Tommy Edwards
Country star and veteran The voice Coach Blake Shelton filled his list of Season 21 hopefuls in Tuesday night’s blind audition series (October 4). The eight-time champion, who calls his team the GOAT (“the greatest of all time”), has turned his chair for rock singer Tommy Edwards.
The 27-year-old from Montana performed in the middle of the hour-long program, auditioning with Train’s “Drops of Jupiter”. As with everything The voice auditions, he channeled the melody to the blind eyes.
The pressure was even more intense for Edwards, as Shelton and fellow coaches John Legend and Kelly Clarkson each had only one free slot in their squads, and Ariana Grande’s squad was already full by the time of her performance. . Fortunately, Edwards’ approach to the song earned him an immediate response from Shelton.
“I like it,” Shelton said excitedly as he swiveled in his chair.
Legend followed soon after, making it a bit more difficult for Shelton to officially add Edwards to his squad. But the country star got into a fight.
“I loved your voice. What I was hearing was the Black Crowes, “Shelton told Edwards after the performance. Even exists on that show for a little while, let alone until the finale.”
“You really know how to make your presence felt,” added Legend. “It’s not always easy with rock music. You have powerful battery life and electricity. I wish you were a member of Team Legend.
Shelton’s talented cast this season includes Peedy Chavis, Wendy Moten, Hailey Green, Lana Scott, The Joy Reunion, Carson Peters, Kaitlyn Velez, Berritt Haynes, Clint Sherman, Manny Keith and Libianca. All teams now engage in battle rounds.
