Natasha Bure auditions on “The Voice”; Tyler Golden/NBC(LOS ANGELES) — The third and final week of blind auditions on The Voice began Monday night.
Coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys were back in their rotating chairs, aiming to round out their teams. By the end of the night, each coach had 12 artists on his or her roster.
The two-hour episode was highlighted in part by the daughter of a Full House star taking the stage.
Here are the highlights of Monday night’s show:
Shannon and Whitney, two sisters in their 20s, kicked off the show with a duet of the Dixie Chicks version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.” Alicia and Miley were both surprised to hear two singers performing. All four coaches ended up turning around. Blake noted that the only successful duo in Voice history was an act he coached: season-four group The Swon Brothers. Alicia declared to the sisters, “The world needs the two of you. We need to see you.” Miley detected a “psychic connection” between Shannon and Whitney, and explained to them that “Landslide” means a lot to her on a personal level. The siblings chose Alicia.
Johnny Rez played a slower version of the Goo Goo Dolls‘ hit “Iris.” It took a while to draw a response from the coaches, but in the final moments of the performance Adam and Blake pressed their buttons. Johnny joined Team Adam.
Everything came up “Roses” for 27-year-old Maye Thomas, who lives in Nashville and whose father is a radio DJ. She took on the song “Roses” by The Chainsmokers. She had her choice of Adam or Miley, though Adam conceded that Maye and Miley would be a good match. Miley said she would like to hear Maye perform a song that’s not as current. As expected, Maye picked Miley as her coach.
Johnny Hayes was passed over by all four coaches after they listened to his rendition of Chris Stapleton‘s “Traveller.”
Courtney Harrell, 36, has written for Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Ne-Yo and Kelly Rowland. She had Blake and Alicia battling for her talents with her take on James Bay‘s “Let It Go.” When Adam asked if she was nervous, Courtney said yes, then revealed it was her first public performance in more than 15 years. Courtney selected Blake, citing the fact that he respects “true artistry.”
Kylie Rothfield, who’s coming back from a vocal hemorrhage she suffered two years ago, put a soulful spin on OneRepublic‘s “Wherever I Go.” Alicia and Blake both turned around for Kylie. Blake said there wasn’t a moment when Kylie didn’t have his attention. Despite the compliment, Kylie ended up as the 12th and final member of Alicia’s team.
Natasha Bure, the 17-year-old daughter of Full House actress and The View co-host Candace Cameron Bure and her husband, former NHL player Valeri Bure, was up next. Before Natasha’s audition, she was shown a taped message of support from Cameron Bure’s Full House co-stars, Bob Saget and John Stamos. Natasha sang the Elvis Presley classic “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Adam pressed his button and added her to his team. He described Natasha as a “self-assured” performer who fell apart a bit during her audition because of her nerves.
Blaine Long played John Hiatt‘s “Have A Little Faith In Me” and drew interest from all of the coaches except Alicia, who said she didn’t turn around only because her team was full. Blake was pumped when Blaine chose him, saying Blaine is an artist who only comes along once every other season. Blaine was the final addition to Team Blake.
Nicholas Ray was unable to advance with his cover of “I’ve Got the Music in Me” by The Kiki Dee Band. Blake said it was a bit “lounge-y,” to which Nicholas replied that he’s a wedding singer. He was denied in part because of song choice, in part because there were so few open spots left.
Adam and Miley both competed for Ponciano Seoane, who sang Phillip Phillips‘ “Home.” Miley joked that they’re both “super Cuban,” and added that she could be very “calm” with him. Adam said he would love to make Ponciano a better version of singer than what he was before he auditioned. Ponciano rounded out Adam’s team.
Since Miley was the only coach with a vacancy, the last audition was pretty anti-climactic. She scooped up teenager Josette Diaz after Diaz played “Love Yourself” by Justin Bieber.
The blind auditions round wraps up Tuesday night with a one-hour, best-of recap airing at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
The Voice battles kick off next week, with the help of the following advisers: Sammy Hagar, for Team Adam; Bette Midler, for Team Blake; Joan Jett, for Team Miley; and Charlie Puth, for Team Alicia.
