The ladies stole the show for the second night in a row on The Voice Tuesday. And an epic steal showdown between coaches Adam Levine and Usher ensured that two of the youngest singers in the competition – unassuming singer-songwriter Caroline Glaser, 18, and wholesome high school country powerhouse Danielle Bradbery, 16 – would not go home.
Coach Blake Shelton paired the two shy young singers together to perform “Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae.
Shakira praised their performances “as refreshing as tangerine ice cream,” while Levine called himself an “imbecile” for not turning his chair for Glaser during the blind auditions.
“Danielle’s performance was maybe more perfect,” said Levine. “But Caroline, there is just something so ethereal and magical and wonderful about your voice.”
Usher felt their harmonies in the middle were “a little shaky,” but praised them for correcting themselves by the end of the song.
But the decision rested on a tortured-looking Shelton, who ultimately picked Bradbery – who’s never had a formal singing lesson – after telling Danielle, “I don’t know what your parents are feeding you, but I want a big loaf of that. Your natural singing ability really blows my mind.”
