The Voice introduced us to five more singers who earned spots on Season 24 Tuesday night.
We also met two more singers who turned all four coaches chairs, and they were guys this time on a season that seems like it’s been all about the ladies.
Caleb Sasser and Willie Gomez earned those four chairs, and both wound up joining Team John Legend.
Oh, and a two-hour time splot for The Voice began with a one-hour recap of the blind audition episode that aired Monday.
And The Voice still couldn’t find time to air the full auditions for the three singers montaged so far in Season 24.
Talk about lazy. That’s simply pathetic, Voice producers.
On with tonight’s recap. Follows the links to learn more about each contestant.
BEST OF THE NIGHT
Caleb Sasser, 27, Goldsboro, N.C., “Another Sad Love Song” by Toni Braxton: Caleb showed off his range and immediately got chair turns from Gwen Stefani and Niall Horan. The other two coaches turned as well, giving Caleb a four-chair turn. Caleb’s range is probably as good as we’ve seen from a male contestant so far in Season 24 on The Voice. John Legend called his performance creative and magical. Niall praised the ease of the performance. Gwen said she could bring Caleb out of his shell. Caleb decided to join Team Legend.
ALSO MADE THE SHOW
Olivia Eden, 15, Long Valley, N.J., “This Town” by Niall Horan: Olivia showed off a very pretty tone from the opening note. That earned her quick chair turns from Niall and Reba McEntire. Those wound up being the only coaches to turn in spite of a nice ending by Olivia. Niall complimented her on the maturity in her voice. He also said she has a nice twang in her vocals. Reba said she was “blown away” by the performance and complimented Olivia on her “poise.” Olivia joined Team Niall.
Willie Gomez, 37, Miami, Fla., “La Bachata” by Manuel Turizo: He’s singing in Spanish and gets an early chair turn from Gwen Stefani. Eventually, all three of the other coaches joined him. Willie’s dance background is obvious. Stage presence won’t be a problem for him. Niall Horan called it a cool performance. Gwen liked his vibe. John Legend called his tone “rich.” Willie joined Team Legend.
Caitlin Quisenbery, 27, Denver, Colorado, “Rainbow” by Kacey Musgraves: As soon as Caitlin hit the chorus, she got a chair turn from country coach Reba. A very nice glory note from Caitlin near the end earned a chair turn from Gwen as well. Reba says Caitlin has the sort of voice she loves to listen to. And she noted they’re both redheads. Caitlin opted to join Team Reba. No surprise there.
Kara Tenae, 33, Riverside, Calif., “”Boo’d Up” by Ella Mai: Kara’s high-energy performance earned a quick chair turn from Gwen Stefani. Niall Horan and Reba McEntire later followed. Gwen called her performance “so beautiful” and also liked her personality and style. Kara opted to join Team Gwen.
