The Voice Recap: Benji Brings It

by at . Comments

One would think after five episodes and three seasons in less than 18 months, The Voice's blind auditions would start to fizzle a bit. Hasn't been the case so far.

The judges are on fire (namely Blake) and the talent keeps pouring in. Let's break down the contestants who advanced last night, with video performances ...

Team Adam Levine

Benji, a former race car driver, slayed with "Knockin' on Heaven's Door." Dude just commanded the stage and showed off some seriously impressive range:

Adam also picked up Collin McLoughlin, whose "Wild World" rendition was very good, even if it didn't knock any socks off like Benji. Take a look below ...

Team Cee LoGreen

Mycle Wastman joined Gang Green with "Let's Stay Together." That was a pretty terrific audition, even if he'll have to branch out considerably to stick around:

He also added Todd Kessler, Ben Taub, and Emily Earle:

Team Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera turned around only once all night, surprisingly. The "Your Body" singer was impressed only be Joselyn Rivera's "Stronger." This would be why:

Team Blake Shelton

Blake managed to steal the show despite going 0-4 on potential team members (he even admitted he's going to have to start trying harder). Man, he's funny though.

What did you think of the fifth round of The Voice blind auditions? Who is your favorite contestant so far in Season 3? What coach's team is looking like the best?


I agree, with so much of The Voice in 18 months one would think it would have worn thin, but this season has been really interesting so far. My coworker at DISH got me watching the show from episode one and I was apprehensive at first. I still think there is a bit of a gimmick to the whole thing. All of these singing shows have some sort of gimmick. That said, I am hooked, and thanks to my Hopper DVR I won’t miss an episode. It has this really creative feature called PrimeTime Anytime. What it does is automatically record all the shows in prime time from the four major networks. I don’t have to think to set a reminder for any given prime time network show, my Hopper just takes care of it. I am always a fan of Team Adam, he’s such a perfectionist, I think he seems to care the most, but Blake has gotten some serious talent this year.
