Meghan Linsey Battles on ‘The Voice,’ Ends Up on Team Blake
Former Steel Magnolia singer Meghan Linsey is competing on this season of NBC's reality singing competition The Voice, and on Monday, she duked it out in the Battle Rounds, facing pop singer Paul Pfau.
The pair went head to head in a duet of the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down," and it had a surprise ending.
Pharrell Williams, who served as their coach, praised both singers for their moving performances and vocal skills, but ultimately chose to keep Pfau. The remaining judges all had the opportunity to "steal" Linsey, and all three jumped at the chance.
"I want you to consider three things: my history on this show, our history as friends and, when people look back at the most epic fails of all time, Adam Levine's name will rank among the Top 10," Shelton begged. The third point was in reference to the fact that Team Blake had ultimately beat Team Adam last year, even though Team Adam members comprised three of the final four contestants.
After hearing each coach's statement, Linsey chose Shelton as her new coach (Interestingly, Shelton was the only coach who did not turn around during Linsey's Blind Audition).
Shelton's other artists include an impressive group of talented singers ranging from fellow country musician Cody Wickline to gifted blues singer Sarah Potenza. Linsey, Wickline and Potenza will all move onto the Knockout Rounds, where they will have the opportunity to perform solo.
