The second night of Season 3's premiere wasn't as exciting as the first, but we still got a look at some of the great talent we'll be seeing along the competition.
First contestant of the night was New York waitress Ariana Louise with Jessie J's "Domino." I wasn't as impressed as the coaches were with her voice, and there were too many woos peppered throughout her performance, but all four pushed their buttons for her. Christina made her case by saying that she thought they'd be a match made in heaven. Because the first record she ever bought was by Aguilera, it wasn't that hard for her to choose Christina as her coach.
Xtina also scored Aquile, a biracial butterfly who has a lot in common with Kanye West. After breaking his jaw at 19, he learned how to play guitar and has been pursuing music ever since. He auditioned with Elton John's "Your Song," and although he is a cutie, I wasn't really feeling his voice either. Both Adam and Xtina turned for him at the same moment, but we would have to wait until after a commercial break to find out who he picked. He goes with Christina after she asked for a "private concert." I don't see him going that far, but hey, he's nice to look at.
Team Cee Lo
It seems like almost every other contestant on these competition shows has contracted some almost fatal virus or bacteria. (What, am the only one who watches 'Chopped'?) Anyways, Mackenzie Bourg almost died from heart failure after an illness but is stronger, for the most part. The Bieber look-a-like did a pumped-up version of Foster The People's "Pumped Up Kicks" that got Cee to hit his button. He was the only one that turned around, so he didn't have to fight with any of of the other coaches for him.
It was no question who Casey Muessigmann, pronounced like Musicman, would end up with. Blake actually heard his boots as he walked onto stage before he started singing. He turned pretty early during "Sweet Home Alabama," then Cee Lo followed. The former amateur wrestler impressed Shelton with his ass-spanking, yes that happened, and Blake scored another member for his team.
The last contestant to go was Mariachi singer Julio Caeser Castillo who was the first singer in the short history of the show to audition singing entirely in Spanish. His rendition of "La Bamba" got Blake moving right away and Cee Lo hit his button right before the last note. The coaches ask him to sing more a cappella, but I don't think he sounds as good without music. Interestingly, he goes with Blake.
Adam didn't score any team members tonight, and he sulked over in his chair. The only singer to be featured that wasn't picked was Ryan Fogarty, who was encouraged to audition by LeAnn Rimes, yes that crazy ass LeAnn Rimes, who he is the production coordinator for on her tour. I'm sure he was expecting at least Blake to turn for him, his performance of Chris Young's "Tomorrow" just wasn't good enough. Blake even said it was hard for him to hear him sing it without thinking about his friend Chris' version. It also didn't help that he sounded so nervous. Maybe next year dude.
The Blind Auditions continue tomorrow night, and the show will be up against 'The X Factor' because I don't have enough things to pay attention to. Watching t.v. is hard guys!
