Ranking The Teams
Adam Gets A Country Singer
In this post I will be ranking the teams on an episode to episode basis. I will be taking into consideration the picks, the coaches decision, tactics and who has a pet bird with them.
1. Team Adam
Already on his team: Judith Hill, Midas Whale, Sarah Simmons
Adam ended up with three new artists after this episode. He stole Karina Iglesias from Shakira and also stole country singer Warren Stone right out from under Blake (and wouldn't let Blake hear the end of it). Duncan Kamakana, one of the artist we didn't see on the episode, has his own YouTube page and is pretty good but I wonder how he is going to do in the battle rounds.
Best Performance: Warren Stone
2. Team Blake
Already on his team: The Morgan Twins, Danielle Bradbury, Christian Porter
After an episode where Blake didn't pick anyone up, he ended this episode with a country superstar and a duo good ol' country boys. Holly Tucker, the best performance of the night, had all four judges turn but seemed to be choosing Blake even before she started to sing. The country duo, The Swan Brothers, killed it and have wound up with the perfect coach for them but if history proves anything duo's don't usually make it past the battle rounds.
Best Performance: Holly Tucker
3. Team Usher
Already on his team: Jess Kellner, Vedo, Josiah Hawley
Usher is having a real hard time so far, he cant' get any of the country stars from Blake and he is nowhere near Adam when it comes to selling themselves to people. Even if that is the case Usher picked up three artists, Michelle Chamuel and Taylor Beckham were pretty great and he might have been higher in the rankings if I knew anything about his third pick, Chelsea M. (She wasn't shown on the show.) Usher is quietly building and pop power house.
Best Performance: Taylor Beckham
4. Team Shakira
Already on her team: Mark Andrews, Kris Thomas, Tawnya Reynolds, Cathia
Shakira is the only coach that has had to rely on being the only one to turn in order to get the talent. She turned by herself for Garrett Gardener and J'Sun (wasn't shown on the show) and only got Latin singer Monique Abbadie because she ended up being a Shakira super fan, even telling her that she is her inspiration. Shakira needs to steal a few amazing singers if she wants a chance to beat Adam or Blake.
Best Performance: Garrett Gardener
