‘The Voice’ Season 13, Episode 4 Recap: Anthony Alexander & Karli Webster Shine In Blind Auditions
The Voice continued with its fourth episode of blind auditions, bringing a vast array of interesting voices for judges Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, and Blake Shelton to add to their teams.
THE VOICE RECAP
First up was Anthony Alexander, a 17-year-old from Fontana, California. He sang “Redbone” by Childish Gambino and convinced three judges to spin around. His falsetto was to die for, and everyone wanted him, but ultimately he decided to join Team Adam to learn from the Maroon 5 frontman.
Sophia Bollman, 18 from Norco, California, was up next, and sang Kelly Clarkson‘s “Invincible.” Her performance started out shaky, but she pulled it together in the end, surprising and pleasing the judges. She joins Team Miley.
Team Miley got another addition in Karli Webster, 20 from Santa Clarita, California. She sang “You’re So Vain” by Carly Simon and her voice is textured and consistent. Levine insists she’s his favorite contestant so far, but Webster chooses Cyrus as her coach.
Stephan Marcellus, 26 of Englewood, New Jersey, takes the stage next and sings “Take Me to Church” by Hozier. His shaky start can’t deter Hudson from turning around, when the chorus comes and his voice blows her away. He joins Team Jennifer.
Lastly, Emily Luther, 24 of Woonsocket, Rhode Island, gets up to bat with “Summertime” by Billie Holiday. She has the voice of an old soul, and those husky tones coming out of a small woman are intriguing. Adam claims he was mesmerized, and Luther joins Team Adam.
So far, the teams are as follows:
Team Adam: Dave Crosby, Brandon Showell, Dylan Gerard, Hannah Mrozak, Adam Pearce, Anthony Alexander, Emily Luther
Team Miley: Janice Freeman, Brooke Simpson, Ashland Craft, Shilo Gold, Addison Agen, Moriah Formica, Sophia Bollman, Karli Webster
