The Voice Recap: Who Won Night 2 of the Blind Auditions?

by at .

The Voice returned Monday with a brand new twist, and some of the best vocalists in the show's fifteen season history. 

Did Tuesday's episode manage to keep up the pace? 

Well, there were some excellent performances and some terrible ones. 

Adam Levine on The Voice Season 14

Let's break down the latest string of contestants making their way to the next round. 

Keith Paluso (Team Blake) - “Way Down We Go”

This Kaleo classic is not an easy song to perform by any stretch of the imagination, but 30-year-old park ranger, Keith, made it his own. 

There wasn't a bad thing to say about the performance. It was flawless and put a new spin on this song that has been used a little too much for emotional scenes on drama series. 

Team Blake should be good to Keith if the song choices are right for him. 

Claire DeJean (Team Kelly) - “Hurt Somebody”

Meh. That's about all there is to say about this performance. Clair is 17-years-old and teaches acting and dance. 

Her vocals were bland, and there was nothing to really distinguish her from some of the other performers who did not make the cut. 

Kelly took her on, but we think this is going to wind up being a big mistake.

Franc West (Team Jennifer) - “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay”

This was another sub-par performance. This 38-year-old took up singing while he was in the Navy, but he didn't have the wow factor you expect from the people who advance to the next stage. 

Being on Jennifer's team, there's every reason to believe she will do her best to find the right genre of music for him. 

If she does not, he won't make it very far. 

Michael Lee (Team Blake) - “The Thrill Is Gone”

Michael flew through his performance. It was so fast-paced that it made the judges wonder what the heck was going on. 

But there was a solid voice in there, and one that could be nurtured by spending some time on Team Blake.

Thankfully, he made his way to Mr. Shelton's country crooner club. 

DeAndre Nico on The Voice

DeAndre Nico (Team Adam) -  “When I Was Your Man”

This NBC reality series usually saves the best for last, and DeAndre's Bruno Mars cover found him with a four-chair turn. 

With vocals that reached dizzying heights, we think it's fair to say that DeAndre performed better than Mars himself. He was THAT good. 

Before his performance, we learned that he was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey. 

Okay, what did you think of Night 2 of the Blind Auditions? Did the right ones make it through to the next stage?
