The Voice season 20 Blind Auditions continue with returning coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend. Nick Jonas rejoins the panel after a season off. Carson Daly returns as host.
Gean Garcia – 19 – McAllen TX – The episode kicks off with a super-secret audition. We don’t see the singer at first! Blake is the first to turn, followed by Nick. OH BLAKE BLOCKED NICK. Dang. Kelly also turns. AND NOW we see why the show hid the singer initially. The female sounding vocal most definitely belongs to a man. A Black man who sounds like a white girl ballady singer.
In his package, Gean explains that he’s grew up in New York City, and his dad is a well known Spanish Christian singer in South America. He started touring with dad, and eventually the recorded a song together. Gean loves Spanish music, but he loves all kind of music. Blake denies it. Nick calls him a bully while Kelly calls him a liar. Nick immediately begins advocating for Kelly.
She calls Gean’s voice “beautifully broken.” Blake feels “passionate” about Gean’s voice. He uses his big boy words, calling his voice “melancholy.” He LOVES his voice. In the end, Gean picks Team Kelly – Blake, Nick and Kelly turn. Blake Blocks Nick, Gean picks Kelly
