The Voice returned last night with its season 14 premiere. Blake and Adam are back once again, and this year, they're joined by Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson for the first time. Last night was full of impressive performances that indicate a strong season ahead. What team did each singer choose?
Here's the team standings so far:
Kyla Jade (33, Nashville, Tennessee)
Kyla has been singing backup vocals for Jennifer Hudson for the past three years and now she's ready to take on a solo gig. She sang Aretha Franklin, which Kelly and Blake both loved. In the end, Kyla went with Blake.
Kaleb Lee (31, Florida)
Kaleb Lee sang "Never Wanted Nothing More" by Kenny Chesney. The country singer is a father of three who's been in the corporate world for the last seven years but is pursuing his dreams once again now that his kids are a bit older.
Rayshun LaMarr (33, Maryland)
Rayshun has overcome a lot to get to The Voice stage. Five years ago, he won his battle with cancer, and now he's ready to live out his dream.
Adam's already come up with his hashtag: #RayshunNation.
Drew Cole (25, LA)
For his blind audition, Drew sang, "Sex and Candy." Drew, with his long locks and really hilarious viral video of him serenading a friend's dog, is bound to go far.
Brynn Cartelli, (14, Massachusetts)
Brynn is just 14, which shocks everyone because of her poise and maturity. Adam may have put it best when he said, "You sound like a 36-year-old who's been through it."
Brynn was the first person that Kelly ever turned her chair for. She admits that she's been a huge fan of Kelly for a very long time, and ends up choosing her as her coach.
D.R. King sang "Believer" by Imagine Dragons.
He doesn't offer up too much about himself, except for the fact that he used to be a teacher, but he has an interesting sound that could take him very far with the right songs.
Britton Buchanan (17, North Carolina)
Britton was one of the younger contestants of the night, but he definitely got off to the right start. Blake, Adam, and Alicia turned their chair for the young singer, and he ended up choosing Alicia.
Kelsea Johnson (21, Delaware)
Kelsea is just 21 and sang beautifully. Adam and Kelly both fought very hard for her, but in the end, the singer chose Alisha.
Justin Kilgore (30, Texas)
Justin was an exciting one. Alicia blocked Blake from choosing Justin, meaning it came down to Alicia, Kelly, and Adam. Alicia told Justin that he moved her spirit, and he eventually went with her.
Justin reveals that his voice is what helped him discover his true self, and allowed him to come out as an openly gay man.
