We’re only four nights into Season 14 of The Voice (Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CTV), but it appears we may have just found the next winner. We know, we know, the show tends to say that in their promos for every episode while the coaches are picking the teams, but we agree this time!
On Tuesday night’s episode, coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys all added to their teams, with Adam Levine going zero for three. But his loss isn’t so bad when you consider that Kelly and Blake are in the same position after losing out on Tuesday’s final performer. He’s worth the hype.
All that, plus fun families, dancing celebs, and too many tears. Enough with the tears already!
TOO MANY TEARS
Spensha Baker is a 24-year-old gospel singer from Texas who cried her way through her background video because she left music. On her own accord. Because it was tough. Are we supposed to feel bad that she got a record deal and was later dropped? Like, that sucks, but dang girl, don’t you remember that movie about the pop singer who got to the top of the charts with no work? No, because it doesn’t exist. Her voice is pretty and she looks just like Gugu Mbatha-Raw. She’s going to go far in this competition. Just cool it with the pity party.
Like the guy you date for longer than you should because you love his family, Alexa Capelli is the singer we want because her family is just so darn cute. To be clear, the 18-year-old music student has a great voice and deserved a chair turn from Adam and Kelly, but we want to see more of Alexa and her twin brother Nick. They’re so happy together! They’re so fun! They don’t sleep in the same bed (as far as we know)!
Wilkes is a stay-at-home dad, a former emo rocker, and a current bone of contention in my house. I thought he had a great voice and beautifully performed a difficult song, making it his own along the way. My viewing/life partner thinks Adam/Blake/Me need our hearing checked. But isn’t that why we love The Voice? Because it’s not about the best singer, but the most exciting. And in this case, the most divisive. Now don’t embarrass me, Wilkes.
CELEBS GOT TALENT
There’s no shortage of reality shows that feature average people doing incredible things. Singing, dancing, juggling, whatever this is, it’s all there. The reason we watch The Voice each season is because we see average people doing incredible things AND we get to see huge celebrities grovel, sell themselves to average Joes, and best of all, make fun of themselves. Get down with your bad self, B-boy Blake.

DIVINITY ENTERED THE ROOM
In the promos for the final performance of Tuesday night, it felt like The Voice was going overboard in hyping up contestant Terrence Cunningham. They weren’t. He’s that good. After stepping away from music to raise his daughter, Terrence got back behind the piano and played “My Girl” as if we had never heard the famous song. Like, it’s “My Girl.” How much can someone change “My Girl?” Apparently, so much. Alicia Keys just won this season.
