Moriah Formica, Davon Fleming dazzle coaches on The Voice

Moriah Formica was one of the teenagers to impress The Voice coaches during Monday’s episode.

Twelve more singers earned spots on The Voice Monday night.

Earning the warmest receptions from the show’s coaches were soul singer Davon Fleming and young rocker Moriah Formica, each of whom turned four chairs.

They joined Team Jennifer and Team Miley, respectively, giving each of The Voice’s female coaches two four-chair turns so far in Season 13.

Only Adam, once the king of four-chair turns, has failed to land a singer all the coaches wanted.

Unfortunately, Monday’s episode also marked the return of the montages.

After three episodes in which the show treated us to full introductions to five singers who didn’t make Season 13, The Voice decided to deny us introductions to three singers who did. Which makes absolutely no sense.

You know what makes less sense?

The show has taken a step backward by not posting the full auditions on line. That’s right, cameras had to be rolling, but the show is too lazy to edit a clip so that at least we can watch what we didn’t see during the episode on the show’s YouTube channel.

That’s pathetic for a show that basically expects contestants to put their lives on hold — and keep participation in the show a secret for months — in order to take part. Remember, these auditions were filmed in June.

Alexandra Joyce, Anna Catherine DeHart and Eric Lyn were the singers we didn’t meet. I’ll try to remedy that through this blog. In fact, I’ve already posted a blog about Anna.

As for the performance, it was probably the best set yet in Season 13, which made selecting my top three quite difficult, especially since Adam Cunningham was so solid, Davon flashed vocal brilliance (though with a lot more frills than I prefer) and Shilo Gold displayed such unique vocals.

Voice Views Top 3

1. Moriah Formica
Song: “Crazy On You” by Heart
Chair turns: Miley Cyrus turned quickly, all the other coaches followed. She chose Team Miley.
Why: She displayed tons of power in a spot-on vocal. My favorite part: Just 16, Moriah saw Miley turn early in the performance, acknowledged it with a smile, and just kept getting stronger.

2. Noah Mac
Song: “Way Down We Go” by Kaleo
Chair turns: Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton turned. Noah joined Team Blake.
Voice Views profile
Why: First off, Noah deliver a great vocal. But what drew me in more was the passion in his performance. He has the potential to be one of the best male alternative-pop artists the show has seen.

3. Addison Agen
Song: “Jolene” by Ray LaMontagne
Chair turns: Adam Levine and Miley Cyrus turned. Addison picked Team Miley.
Voice Views profile
Why: How in the world does a 16-year-old get that much heartache in her voice? How in the world did only two coaches turn for that performance?

Also making the show:

Adam Cunningham
Song: “Midnight Rider” by The Allman Brothers
Chair turns: Blake Shelton and Jennifer Hudson (at the last moment). Adam choose Team Blake.
