Chris Young has one of the most distinct and underrated voices in all of country music, so singing one of his songs on a reality TV competition like “The Voice,” is no easy task. But, Austin Kilgore went for it with his blind audition on season 14 of the NBC show and he got a four-chair turn out of it.
Austin caused a real scene with his performance of “Tomorrow.” So much so, that Alicia Keys used her one and only block of the season to make sure Blake Shelton didn’t lure him to his team.
But, that wasn’t even the good part.
When Austin revealed that Reba McEntire inspired him to get into country music, Kelly Clarkson let loose.
Alicia Keys added, “I will call Reba McEntire too. I will call Bonnie Raitt.”
Adam Levine said he would call Meryl Streep or “anybody that you want me to call, I will call!” But, really, Adam did not care who he picked because Blake had been blocked.
Kelly went a little deeper and said, “This is going to be pathetic if you do not pick me. That was the Lord saying, ‘Pick Kelly!’ That was Jesus Christ… follow the light. I know country music! I live on a farm. I am a country girl. But, man, if you don’t pick me…”
Kelly also accused Adam of lying from Satan’s mouth. She like, went for it.
In the end, Austin did pick Kelly. Thank goodness. Not sure what she would’ve done if he hadn’t.
