Season 4 of The Voice kicked off by introducing two new coaches. R&B Heartthrob
First up, The Morgan Twins (A duo and two new coaches introduced on the same night? That doesn't sound planned -_-). Apart from making the male judges hot and bothered, they give a decent rendition of "Fallin'" by Alicia Keys. They manage a 4 Chair Turn and pick Blake Shelton as their coach. Then, it's Jess Kellner who in my opinion did the best, even though the last performer that night got the rave reviews (More on her later; no matter how much I hate her). Her rendition of "Can't Help Falling in Love" is very pleasing, but only manages a 2 Chair Turn (Neither of which came from Adam Levine O_o) and picks Usher as her coach leaving Shakira muy triste (Yo hablo [escribo] poco español tambien.) Third up is Mark Andrew who managed a 2 Chair Turn from Adam and Shakira for his take on "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and picks Shakira (Believe me; this is pretty much the only memorable thing about him. The show would go on to put him in the "Who?" file very quickly.)
Then it's the fourth total but first reject of the night, Janetza Miranda. She struts in with hooker shoes, afro, red lipstick and has a thing to her known as the "Bird Call" (VoteForTheWorst realness, hunty.) Then her audition song "Titanium" by David Guetta ft. Sia has us wondering if she could even go pyrite in the music industry. She is axed and carried off by her supporting family squawking better than she sang. Fifth,
Seventh up, Christian Porter who sang "Sexy And I Know It" by LMFAO...-_- He should've been axed on song choice alone, but this is The Voice not "The Song Choice" (in this case, BOO)
Then a montage (people hate this with a burning passion) of 3 singers who didn't make it, followed by a shocking no chair turn. Eleventh up, Leah Lewis (Who could easily be an Asian-American answer to Selena Gomez) who despite being adorable, apparently picked the toughest Carrie Underwood song to sing live, "Blown Away". There's always
Then came a really shocking no chair turn. Thirteenth up was James Irwin, who sob story aside (you have my typed condolences and real ones too) picked a cursed song for males, "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" by The Script (A song that famously screwed David Dunn in Season 2 and any other man who dared sing that). I don't know why that song is hexed, but sadly, James became the biggest no chair turn shock in Voice U.S. anthology.
Last and certainly least in all four of my eyes (Glasses joke) former Michael Jackson backup singer of "This Is It" fame, Judith Hill. Being backup for Michael is not the issue with Judith; it's her inability to project her voice while singing; making her sound like the laziest vocalist I've heard on the show. Her rendition of "What A Girl Wants" by S1-S3 (and S5 no matter how many people hate her) Voice coach, Christina Aguilera is half assed and that's me being nice. Yet for some reason, she got all 4 Chairs to turn (The earwax must've been turned up at SpinalTap levels) and picked Adam as her coach.
All in all, despite Judith, I rather enjoyed the S4 premiere. Next up for my brand of scrutiny, the Blind Auditions Part 2.
