Older lounge singer Ryan Innes said before his blind audition, “emotion doesn’t have an age. I may by late to the party, but I’m going to make the most noise.” The first mentor to turn around was Adam, followed by Blake, Usher, then Shakira. Blake said “Ryan’s got soul. That’s the most fun I’ve had listening the whole day. The audience was like ‘that is the perfect pair.’ I think I’d be a great coach for you!” Shakira reacted to Ryan’s performance with, “I would love to have you on my team because you show a confidence.” Adam said, “I would like to point out the lighting quickness that I turned around. That’s what’s great about this show is these electric moments where you want to be part of someone’s career.” Usher had the most convincing speech with “You show true substance. I’m here to win and I know it’s only going to be by having incredible talent. I feel that I could help you but also win,” he told Ryan. Ryan chose Adam, stating “becasue I sing soul music, I pick Usher!”
Young Mary Miranda from Cuba sang a Selena song and got the attention of Shakira first, then followed by Usher and Blake. Mary sang the song in Spanish. Blake reacted, “No one can understand anything that I say either. I think you’re awesome. I have to think of some way to get you into the in zone,” Blake said. Mary ultimately chose to be on Team Shakira.
Grace Askew selected Team Blake. Blake said she has a blend of country and blues. “I think she’s a serious weapon that’s going to be a thorn in these mentors’ sides,” Blake said about Grace.
Adam said, “I can see myself stealing Ryan.”
