Song Support: Nicolle Galyon Backs RaeLynn On “The Voice” With Her Voice

nicolle gallyon and raelynn

Shortly after Nicolle Galyon left The Voice, we asked her who she would be supporting on the show.  The singer/songwriter admitted she’s a fan of all the contestants, but her loyalties lay with RaeLynn.

It’s one thing to say you’re supporting somebody, but Nicolle’s taking it to another level by singing about her!  The former member of Team Adam posted the song “California” on her Facebook page with the caption:  “Any guess who this was written about??”  (If the lyrics don’t give it away, the link to The Voice voting page and the request for folks to vote for RaeLynn certainly do!)

You can hear the song below and also get a free download of it here.

Actually, the song has a double-shot of support from former contestants on The Voice.  Hailey Steele from the country duo The Line (formerly on Team Christina) sings the background vocals on the song.

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 8

The Voice

And there you have it…

The Voice‘s battle rounds are now complete, and six members from each team are moving on to the live shows.

As we already know, Team Blake consists of RaeLynn, Jordis, Charlotte Sometimes, Erin Willett, Jermaine Paul… and tonight Naia Kete was added to the group!

Coach Blake Shelton paired Naia up against country boy, Jordan Rager. The amazingly talented Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert were there once again to help mentor the team.

For the battle, Naia and Jordan performed Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.” As the coaches pointed out, we have seen better from both contestants and their full skills were not on display this round. When it was time for Blake to make a decision, he decided to advance Naia to the live shows.

VIDEO: Gwen Sebastian Sings At Blake Shelton’s Concert

Say what you will about Blake Shelton‘s sometimes over-the-top humor, but you have to admit that he is an all-around good guy. After inviting eliminated Team Blake member Gwen Sebastian to be part of his touring family, he let the North Dakota native have her time to shine in her home-town last night during his “Well Lit & Amplified” tour. Gwen took center stage to perform a moving rendition of Sugarland‘s “Stay” with Blake’s band backing her up. She received a standing ovation at the end of her performance.

Watch Gwen’s performance of “Stay” in front of her home crowd and make sure to let us know what you think about Gwen joining Blake on tour:

 

Blake is nominated for the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of The Year. The fan voted award is up for votes right now at voteacm.com and fans can vote once a day!

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 7

The Voice

The battle rounds are coming to an end on The Voice, and Team Blake is almost complete!

This week, we saw Jermaine Paul up against ALyX and Erin Willett versus Gwen Sebastian. Two of our favorite girls, Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert, were back to mentor and assist the team. Jermain and Erin got some help from Kelly, while ALyX and Gwen worked with Miranda.

Jermaine vs. ALyX

Jermaine and ALyX performed Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” for their battle. Both did a great job and it was a solid fight, but Coach Blake Shelton decided to go with Jermaine.

Jermaine is a seasoned performer with such professionalism and killer voice. He had me the whole round, and I felt like I was at his own concert.

Congratulations to Jermaine! We can’t wait to see you next round. Also, good luck to ALyX! We are sure she will have success.

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 6

The Voice

On Monday night, the battle rounds continued on The Voice. This week’s recap is relatively short since there was only one Team Blake battle.

This past episode, we had Charlotte Sometimes up against Lex Land. Team Blake’s awesome mentors (I’m pretty jealous, to be honest), Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert, were back. Kelly worked with Charlotte (read more about their mentor session), while Miranda helped out Lex.

Blake chose Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” for the girls’ battle. Charlotte and Lex gave it their all on performance night, and Blake ended up choosing Charlotte to advance in the competition.

Charlotte vs. Lex Battle:

Charlotte gave a great performance, and we are happy to see her continue with Team Blake. And we didn’t know beforehand, but Charlotte is also pretty funny and has a great sense of humor.

Congratulations to Charlotte! We are looking forward to seeing her again next round.

We also want to wish good luck to Lex. We are sure more good things will come her way.

Kelly Clarkson & Charlotte Sometimes Cried During The Voice

Blake Shelton & Kelly Clarkson on "The Voice"

In one of the segments not shown on television this week during the Battle Rounds, Kelly Clarkson and Team Blake contestant Charlotte Sometimes shared a moment together. In a telephone call yesterday, Charlotte admitted that her and the pop superstar were crying as they spoke about how other people’s opinions effected them:

“I’m such a big fan of Kelly Clarkson. I think she’s so awesome, so she really just taught me like, you know, when we had our moment together when it wasn’t shown on TV — we had this moment where we both crying and talking about like just people’s opinions about us.”

Charlotte explains a bit further as the pair talked about body image. Charlotte admits that she was anorexic growing up, and she bonded with Kelly over this fact:

“And our bodies and completely way that, you know, didn’t know I went through. But I was anorexic all growing up and when I first — my first record came out everyone was kind of like trashing me and calling me fat and all these things.”

It looks like those few minutes with Kelly affected the singer, who says that Kelly gave her the confidence to be herself and be confident in who she was as a person before hitting the stage:

“She just kind of really made me feel comfortable in my skin. And just gave me confidence and just made me feel like it was okay to be myself and that was good enough. And I just – I’m just so thankful that I got to have that conversation with her.”

The Voice continues next Monday night at 8 pm EST. Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert both return to help mentor members of Team Blake Shelton. See who else moves on to the live rounds next week and stay tuned to Keepin’ it Country for all your up-to-date and exclusive Team Blake news.

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 5

The Voice

With all teams complete, The Voice is officially in the second phase of the competition!

The battle rounds began last night, and our Team Blake had to send two members home. It was a fight between Adley Stump vs. RaeLynn and Brian Fuente vs. Jordis.

Joining Team Blake as mentors are music superstars, Miranda Lambert and Kelly Clarkson. Miranda and Kelly are each in charge of six members. This week, Miranda worked with RaeLynn and Jordis, while Kelly helped out Adley and Brian. None of the team members knew that they were being mentored by Miranda and Kelly. Needless to say, they were all very excited when they walked into the room and saw them. I loved getting to watch Miranda and Kelly work with the team. They are both so unbelievably talented, knowledgeable, and down-to-earth. Not to mention, you cannot beat their first-hand experience when it comes to singing competitions.

RaeLynn vs. Adley

Blake chose Tom Petty’s, “Free Fallin'” for RaeLynn and Adley’s battle. The girls both sounded great and Adley has some vocal range. Unfortunately, Blake had to make the difficult decision of sending someone home. In the end, he decided to have RaeLynn continue forward in the competition.
