Two episodes into the new season of The Voice, and the blind auditions have been going great. Fans are waiting for the blind auditions to continue in episode 3 of season 21 of The Voice. With all the contestants coming, the judges were definitely having a hard time over whom to choose. The very first episode of the new season began with the much-needed performance of the brilliant judges, followed by some incredible people coming up with their incredible voices.
This new season, a new judge is making their debut. Ariana Grande, took the judge’s seat in her first season, as she replaced Nick Jonas. While Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend made their way back to the show, following their previous seasons. As the audience calmed down with all the energy, the judges settled into their seats for the blind auditions to start. The rules for the audition were simple. The contestant comes up on stage and performs, while the judges are turned around, not knowing who the person singing is. If they like the voice, they press the buzzer and turn around for the voice to enter their team.
