'The Voice' recap: Blake Shelton misses out on three artists but wins four-chair turn Pryor Baird

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/28/2018 

The Voice's fourteenth season picked up five more artists in the Blind Auditions round during Tuesday night's one-hour broadcast on NBC.

The Voice coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson selected five artists for their teams based on their initial auditions, advancing them to the next "The Battle Round."

After a night of several artists turning down Blake in favor of other coaches -- and the country star becoming a little frustrated and deflated over the turn of events -- Blake landed a huge four-chair turnaround, which gave him confidence and something to brag about going forward.

Pryor Baird, a 35-year-old from Nashville, TN, who manages the restoration of homes, took the stage with "I Don't Need No Doctor," and all four chairs turned for him.

Kelly admitted Pryor looked like "a sexy man," and Adam said it's rare to find a person who plays the guitar that well but also sings the way he can simultaneously. Usually, a person is a better singer or guitarist, but he's equally proficient and skilled in both.

Blake called Pryor an "incredible vocalist" and said it sounded like the artist smoked a pack of cigarettes and drank a bottle of whiskey before stepping on the stage, which separates him from the pack. Blake absolutely loved the guttural and raspy sound to his voice.

"I want you! I want you on my team!" Blake screamed.

Alicia then pointed out that Pryor has great power and range, and she'd love to explore what else he can do. Alicia also insisted she's the only coach who could hit Pryor's notes and sing that high, but Kelly was shown making a confused and displeased face, because she's obviously one of the best female vocalists of all time.

In the end, Pryor opted to join Blake's team. The guys felt an immediate bond or "kinship" with each other. Adam confessed "that one hurt" to losing Pryor, but the artist appreciated how Blake is just a "down-home regular guy," who would probably focus on what Pryor's music should sound like.

Blake, however, lost out on Davison, a 23-year-old from Little Rock, AR; Jaclyn Lovey, a 16-year-old from Placerville, CA; and Molly Stevens, a 34-year-old from Raleigh, NC.

Davison sang "To Love Somebody," and both Blake and Adam pressed their buttons for him. Davison chose "Team Adam" because he thought the Maroon 5 frontman understood and appreciated his artistry and purpose. Adam believes Davison "will be a finalist."

Jaclyn performed "Can't Help Falling In Love" for her Blind Audition, prompting both Blake and Alicia to turn around. Jaclyn picked Alicia because they both love classic songs. Alicia promised the young singer they would keep her vocals honest and genuine, and it will be all about her.

Molly took the stage with "Heavenly Day." She managed to get Blake and Kelly to both turn around, but she chose to join "Team Kelly" because they seemed to connect on a "soulful level," according to the coach, because of her rock and country base.

Kelly also snagged Dylan Hartigan, a 21-year-old from Wyckoff, NJ, for her team. She was the only coach who turned her big red chair around for his performance of "Danny's Song," but she predicts he will be a "dark horse" in the competition because his voice is solid.
