Blind Auditions 5
October 7
THE STORY SO FAR! The son of a rock legend, a cruise ship singer, a concerned brother, a returning player, and an IT consultant who turned four chairs are all locks to the next round. But on the final night of Blind Auditions, some heads - and some chairs - are still waiting to be turned.

First up for the evening, it's a returning contestant, Matt Cermanski (20; Phoenixville, PA) likes to switch things up, but felt that "Teenage Dream" was not an ideal Blind audition. Will he do better now that he's "found himself genre-wise"? He'll try on "Have a Little Faith in Me" by John Hiatt... with a guitar. ADAM's in instantaneously. BLAKE wants in on some action. "Damn it!" Yeah. CEE LO says "Not so fast!" So we have a gentlemen's disagreement. Adam was first. Blake doesn't want him to compromise. Last season was "weird". This time... Adam's calling his shot. And Matt... picks up on it. Welcome to TEAM ADAM! One spot left.

Diego Roman Navaira (22, San Antonio) grew up in a family of singers, including one Emilio Navaira (his father), a famous Tejano singer (he and Selena are cited as two of the bigs that brought Tejano into the mainstream). Of course, The Voice wouldn't want you to know that Emilio's album, "It's On The House" is on sale now, otherwise, why else would they have posted a copy of it on the show? But don't let that fool you... Diego is a punk rocker through and through, and he's been writing rock songs since he was 11. Now he's ready for the next stage.... and he's taking it over with a "Rebel Yell" from Billy Idol. And with a rebel yell, the coaches cried no, no, no.

Tamara Chauniece (23; Wharton, TX) got into music through the church... where she spent most of her free time. Her first public performance was when she was 7, and since then, it was all weddings and the like. Even when she was 11, she self-released her own inspirational album. Having been burned out, she became a leasing agent. But she always wanted to get back into music. Her coming out party... "1+1" by Beyonce. Christina wants to round out her team right now. Cee Lo... wants to prevent that from happening. Tamara calls CEE LO a beast... and she likes the Beast. That and she wants him to come to Jesus. Two spots left.

Brandon Chase (20, Arlington, TX) says he's a driven competitor who always wanted to do country music. He's also super smart, having graduated college at 17. It's actually a miracle he's able to do all these things, seeing that his childhood was medically labored. He actually stopped breathing 60 or so times in a 12-hour period. Now he hopes to fulfill his destiny with "Wanted" by Hunter Hayes. And Blake wants him. Christina tries to get Cee Lo to give Blake competition... and he does! After Cee Lo gives Blake a chance to lie, Brandon gives his vote to... BLAKE.

Lupe Carroll (26; Bourbonnais, IL) makes other people happy through his work as a flower arranger & deliverer. He would gig in restaurants and street fairs, but he'd like to get into something permanent. In the meantime, he's happy having met and married his best friend, a cellist by the name of Melissa. Who knows, maybe he's singing for her? He sings "If I Were A Carpenter" by Johnny Cash. Cee Lo is looking to build onto his team.... and he WILL! One spot left.

Grey (24; Jacksonville, FL) was singing since she could talk. She's a graduate of Berklee College of Music, but ended up with a job as a wedding singer. she wants to get out of that and into something different. She'll break out with "Catch My Breath" by a good friend of Blake's, Kelly Clarkson. Adam wants in on the breath-catching. Blake's not letting this one go without a fight. Neither is Cee Lo. So it's a battle between men... and apparently the fates don't want Blake to have this one because technical accidentally turns his chair BACK! WOOPS! When it's all said and done, .... Grey goes with what she knows best... She grew up singing country, and because of that, she's going with... ADAM?! Well... That's a team!

Dominic Scott Kay (17; Malibu, CA) started young... as an actor (a little movie called "Minority Report"). In fact, Neal McDonough is here with him cheering him on. His dad is actually the drummer for the Commodores, and of course, he's pulling out "Easy" by said band. If only getting a chair to turn was that easy.

Michael Lynch (27; Chicago) likes to do pop with a Spanish flair, having used music to learn the language. But can this Anglo handle Enrique's "Bailamos"? If it helped, he was doing music in Mexico City as well... hard market to crack, that. But let's see what he's got. He's. got... enough to get Christina to turn her chair. And Blake.... And Cee Lo! It's a three-turn! Remember, Adam has a full team. Christina is half-Irish. Cee Lo is half-amazing. Blake... is half whatever you want him to be, baby. But he's going to round out... TEAM CHRISTINA! And they celebrate with a little duet!

It's down to two spots. Will one go to Deanna Johnson (17; Hazlehurst, GA)? She sings at church and at mule roundups and rodeos, but she's by no means a country singer. She loves Adele, even though half of her small town don't know who she is. They will tonight. Google it, kids. Her gambit: "Stars" by... yeah, her. No room for this star, though.

Brian Pounds (24; Austin, TX) is a full-time musician in a family of athletes. He wanted to be a baseball player... but ultimately wanted to concentrate on the guitar, gigging at bars. His words: "I've never been so happy to be so broke." He is beginning to sow seeds of doubt when it comes to making this a professional thing, but a chair turn would turn that around quickly. He tries "Wagon Wheel" by Darius Rucker... and OCMS... and Mumford & Sons... among others. Blake's like, "Let's do it." And so does Blake. Someone's going to fill his team right now... It's BLAKE!

So to review...

One spot left...  and hoping to fill it is an Army veteran Shawn "Big Sexy" Smith (32; Utica, NY), who calls music his release. He went from tours in Iraq to tending bar. He actually has 80 percent hearing loss in his right ear from an IED while he was in Iraq. He's definitely doing this for the boys who didn't come back. We end the Blinds with a little Zac Brown Band, "Chicken Fried". And... HE'S IN!

And that's it! You can relive the Blinds tomorrow, but next week... PREPARE FOR BATTLE!
