When it comes to NBC’s “The Voice,” it’s inevitable that there will be some banter between judges, especially when they’re vying over the same talented singer.
This time, that singer was Justin Whisnant.
On March 8 during the show’s blind auditions, a 28-year-old Justin – clad in suspenders, ‘wing-toes’ and arm tattoos – channeled Cole Swindell’s “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey.”
While coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine traded competitive looks during the performance, it didn’t take long for Adam to swing his chair around. However, Blake – like a slow-ticking clock – waited until the split second that he heard Justin hit a high-note.
With the ball in Justin’s court, a worried Adam poked fun at Blake in his attempt to sway the country crooner into joining Team Adam. However, with a little bit of sincerity and country charm, Blake ended up coming out strong.
“When I hear or see a great country singer, I take it to heart,” said Blake. “Because I know that there’s probably going to be a relationship that goes on long after this show.”
While both Blake and Justin are fellow Oklahoma boys, there will be plenty to bond over, because after all, Justin chose to be on Team Blake.
The final round of blind auditions will be on Monday, March 14,
