The Voice USA: Season 21 Mega Mentor Announced

This week ends the phase of “blind auditions” in the 21st season of The Voice from United States. Thus, the teams will be formed and the battle phase will arrive. On this occasion, members of the same team sing in duet, but only one will be chosen by their coach to advance in the competition. Once this phase is complete, Knockouts begin, when survivors compete against each other in a similar format to the previous phase. The difference is that they sing alone.

John Legend praised her: “I love this song, it’s a classic, and I’ve been in a good mood since the song started. What I liked the most about your version is that you put some power in it, it was really cool, it was very different“, he said.

Kelly Clarkson also commented, explaining the reason why he did not turn his chair: “Sabrina was really cool, but I already have Carolina, who is also bilingual, so I didn’t want to put the two in competition, so I didn’t come“, he said.

Unfortunately the presentation was not aired in its entirety, with just a few seconds. Anyway, it’s a great achievement!
