Season 12 of ‘The Voice’ kicked off this week, and it’s already clear that the ladies are going to dominate this time around! I was most impressed with how many young voices stepped up and proved their power in this first week of the show, and while there were a few men who stood out in the auditions my picks this week are going to the ladies! Check out some of my top picks from the first week of the Blind Auditions below!
Stephanie Rice – This girl actually had Kelly Clarkson herself in tears with her moving performance of Piece By Piece!
Lauren Duski – Something about this lady’s smooth, deep voice made her a quick favourite for me! Take a listen to her rendition of Jewel – You Were Meant For Me.
Felicia Temple – This cancer survivor had everyone at home won over with her story of courage, but it was her powerful vocals that had the coaches fighting for her to join their teams! It was pretty obvious who she’d go with after Alicia got talking though!
Anatalia Villaranda – All I can say is “WOW!”, this 16-year-old grabs your attention from the very first note. Hopefully she’ll be around for a long time in this competition!
Lilli Passero – This was actually my only pick from night two of the Blind Auditions. Something about her voice was so simple and classic. She definitely stands out in her own lane, can’t wait to see where she’ll go in this competition!
