Last night, the talent was high, and the stakes were even higher as the coaches fought to fill their teams with those they think can bring a win. Shakira added two artists to her team. After turning her chair more than a few times, she finally managed to starting filling her roster. She picked up gospel trained and powerful vocalist Cierra Mickens after her strong rendition of “Crazy” turned three chairs. Also joining Team Shakira was Ddendyl. Trained in opera but now more Blues and Jazz, Ddendyl performance of “Stand By Me” was enough to grab Shakira's attention.

Adam had a good night, picking up four artists. During the quick-clip, we learned he added Josh Murley (“The Freshman”) and Austin Ellis (“Drift Away) with no competition from the other coaches.

After somewhat of a slow start, Blake hit it huge last night. He picked up four great singers, with two of them rounding out my Top 3 performances of the night. Blake beat out Shakira and picked up Paula Deanda after she sang “The Way.” Paula had been signed in the past and was looking to restart her music career.
Cali Tucker (“Black Velvet”), shown during the quick-clip also joined Team Blake.

There's only one more night of Blind Auditions, and the coaches each have only one spot left to fill. The competition to even turn a chair will be tight, and the battle of the coaches to win the artist they want will be fierce.
Tune in tonight (Tuesday) for the final Blind Auditions... 8/7c on NBC.
