The Voice Recap: Reina Ley, Brayden Lape – Blind Auditions

Hardly had Tuesday’s episode The voice his unfinished business from Monday night resolved – Kate Kalvach finally decided to join Team Blake Shelton – then it was full steam ahead with the blind auditions. In doing so, we were introduced to a mariachi singer who made music to the ears of new trainer Camila Cabello, a contestant whose voice is as interesting as his unique name and a teenage dream that Blake Shelton recruited so enthusiastically he called it ” the greatest day of my Voice Coach life.” Keep reading and we’ll cover them all.

She’s got a voice that won’t stop and a tone that makes you think, “Hey, kinda Linda Ronstadt-y.” I couldn’t believe she only got two rounds of chairs – well, plus this priceless Camila reaction (pictured).

Bryce Leatherwood (Team Blake), “Goodbye Time” – Grade: C+ | This 22-year-old grandfather’s boy bravely took on his later coach’s version of the Conway Twitty classic, and had Gwen saying, “That’s a pretty voice!” from the start. I thought it was him fine-omenal, don’t phe– nominal. It also seemed significant that the coaches discussed his country name and personality as much or more than his voice.

Alyssa Witrado (Team Gwen), “Don’t Speak” – Grade: D | This 19-year-old Californian, who used music to get through her parents’ divorce, got Gwen so smitten while covering No Doubt Kamila turned almost immediately to forestall her. But both coaches must have somehow regretted their quick panning after hearing how brusquely and sloppy the performance ended.

Is there anything?” But that turned out to be his trick. He continued to build his voice, building in intensity with the song until it was less like “Is there anything?” and more like “Whoa, OK, there is something there,” a voice that could be as strong as it is gentle. TBD but promising.

Chello (Team Camila), “Just the Two of Us” – Grade: C- | This aspiring songwriter/producer is about as adorable and funny as it gets. (Throw in his two best friends and he’s a sitcom waiting to happen.) So I was really taken aback that his audition was as flat as a pancake being run over. Maybe twice. I could grow to love him, but first impressions: his personality is much more engaging than his singing.

And at first it was easy to see why: his opening notes were absolute showstoppers. But as he continued, his performance felt less “OMG” and more “Oh…OK.” But he definitely has brains. Maybe he just needs a bigger song to make a bigger impact?

Sadie Bass (Team Gwen), “Dumb Boy” — Grade: B | Despite being prone to stage fright, this 25-year-old country girl managed to scare two turns in a chair with her rendition of Keith Urban’s hit. It wasn’t the jaw-dropping performance, but it was solid and showed that she has both beautiful vocals and real pizzazz behind her.

But his tone really was nice and warm. It will be interesting to see if the One Chair Round trainer can teach him fast enough to get him through the battles. Blake called the day he recruited Brayden the best of his Voice coaching career. But it doesn’t seem promising that Camila had to talk him into panning, or that he seemed more enthusiastic about Brayden’s athletic endeavors than his musical ones.

Peyton Aldridge (Team Legend), “You Can’t” – Grade: A- | This 25-year-old cutie spat out the stage. He just has one of those amazing voices that makes it sound like he gargles Brillo pads every morning. What do I mean as a compliment! It’s easy to imagine how the three-chair turn (which inspired John to use his block against Blake) evolved into this season’s Todd Tilghman.
