AceShowbiz - Blind Auditions for "The Voice" season 22 continued in the Monday, September 26 episode of the singing competition show. In the episode, coaches Blake Shelton, Camila Cabello, Gwen Stefani and John Legend were trying to get the best singers on their respective teams.
The first audition of the night was from Andrew Igbokidi, who sang Billie Eilish's "when the party's over". Gwen, Blake and Camila all hit their buttons before John followed their suit, making it a full four chair turn. John claimed he was "intrigued" by Andrew's choices and even mentioned his recent collabs he's done with West African artists to appeal him. Andrew, however, decided to go to Team Camila.
Following it up was Cara Brindisi, who wanted to impress Blake with her performance of Taylor Swift's "All Too Well". Both Gwen and Blake turned for her. Camila urged Cara to pick Blake. Shockingly, Cara went to Team Gwen. Singing Luke Combs' "She Got the Best of Me" was Pharmacist Billy Craver, but unfortunately no one turned for him.
Valarie Harding followed it up with a performance of En Vouge's "Giving Him Something He Can Feel". John and Gwen both hit their buttons. John praised Valarie for her vibrato as well as her unexpected runs and riffs. Valarie chose to be on Team John.
The next singer was Julia Aslanli, who hit the stage with her version of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together". Gwen liked Julia's voice instantly, turning her chair almost immediately. Gwen was the only coach who turned for Julia, so Julia automatically went to Team Gwen.
Taking to the stage next were Katelyn and Derek from Nashville who made up the country duo The Dryes. Their performance of "Islands in the Stream" by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers was enough to make Blake and Gwen fight for them. Both coaches tried their best to pitch, but The Dryes picked Team Blake without a second thought.
In the second hour of the night, Ava Lynn Thuresson tried to impress the coaches with a rock rendition of Britney Spears' "… Baby One More Time". Camila and John turned for Ava Lynn. After much consideration, the 18-year-old eventually settled on Team Camila.
Performing next was Madison Hughes, who auditioned with Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door". Her performance got Blake, Gwen and Camila hit their buttons. Blake successfully convinced Madison that he could bring the best out of her as she joined his team.
Singing "River", Sasha Hurtado wowed John and Camila. Camila noted that she could see similarities between them and believed that she could help see where her journey could go from here. Sasha seemed to think so as she went to Team Camila. Dominic Patrick then hit the stage to sing Usher's "U Got It Bad", but he failed to make any coach turn for him.
Rounding out the night was Morgan Taylor, who performed Lizzo's "Cuz I Love You". Blake immediately turned his chair and the rest of the coaches did the same. Morgan, however, made it clear that she didn't want to be a country singer necessarily. As she mentioned that she wanted to do soulful pop, Camila started pitching harder. This time, John won the battle as Morgan chose to be on Team John.
