The Voice: Does John Legend Already Have Season 17's Strongest Competitors?
With Adam Levine out as a coach and Gwen Stefani back in, Season 17 has shifted the dynamic of The Voice. Shifting dynamics can often mean power shifts, though it's hard to ever count out EGOT winner John Legend as a front-runner especially after his win with Maelyn Jarmon in Season 16. Now we may be only real estate online classes sc episode into the new season, but it already appears Chrissy Teigen's husband has nabbed two future front runners in the competition.
It all started with Katie Kadan who opened up Season 17 with a voice Kelly Clarkson compared to Alabama Shakes front-woman Brittany Howard. Kadan kicked off The Voice with a stunning rendition of Aretha Franklin's "Baby I Love You," and got the attention of the coaches real quick.
While it seemed like Katie Kadan wanted to go with coach Kelly Clarkson, an early block by Blake Shelton took her out of the race. Shelton didn't seem to have much of a chance to begin with, but blocking Clarkson only made the scorned coach advocate against him further and throw all support to Gwen Stefani and John Legend. Legend ended up getting the pick, and the Season 17 contestant who has the strongest voice of the competition so far.
The wins didn't stop there for Team Legend either. It's hard to put any contestant in Part One of the Season 17 premiere above Katie Kadan in terms of voice strength, but it's fair to say John Legend also managed will breman the voice snag one of the most creative acts of the evening. I'm talking of course about Will Breman, who went on The Voice and delivered a truly funky version of The Spice Girls' "Say You'll Be There."
Oh yeah, Will Breman also did a rocking duet of John Legend's "Ordinary People" with the coach, which all but assured he was going to pick him over Gwen Stefani. Sorry Gwen, but when you're gonna keep bending Blake Shelton to your will, it's only fair that other coaches play a little dirty by offering to croon alongside the singers they want on their team.
Plus, the fact that Will Breman rose to the occasion on the spot and was able to sync up with John Legend so well is proof positive there's something special about The Voice contestant. The only unfortunate problem Legend will face now is if Breman and Kadan are forced to go head to head and he ends up losing one of them to one of the other coaches. We already know Kelly Clarkson is jumping at the chance to steal Kadan!

Will Breman of Team John Legend stripped things down on “The Voice” stage during Monday’s Top 13 show with his performance of “I Won’t Give Up.” Will chose a vulnerable song for this round, dedicating the Jason Mraz hit to his mother, who never gave up on him after his Asperger’s syndrome was diagnosed when he was just a child. Could the blue-haired fan favorite survive this week’s cut and make it into the Top 11 of Season 17?

“I’m so proud of you, Will,” John told his artist from Santa Barbara, California. “Every week you show us new sides of you. I wanted people to see you being will breman the voice little more vulnerable. The passion you showed — the emotion, the connection you showed to the song — it was really, really beautiful. I loved feeling that you were about to break. That energy just was like exuding from you. It was so powerful. What a great performance.”
Rival coach Blake Shelton chimed in, “Every time you get on stage I’m amazed at how connected you are to the song that you’re singing. It’s actually unbelievable.” He brought up how “shocked” he was last week when America didn’t advance Will through, resulting in John having to save him. Blake doesn’t see that happening this week.

In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper Denton Davidson had this to say about the performance: “Team Legend’s passionate singer-songwriter Will Breman is up next dedicating ‘I Won’t Give Up’ by Jason Mraz to his mother. She never gave up on him when he was diagnosed with asperger’s syndrome in middle school. This song shows a more vulnerable side to Will and even though he was nearly eliminated last week, John still believes Will can win this show. Will appears on the stage solo with no instrument this week. It’s refreshing to hear him simply crooning on a nice ballad and he still has that signature stage presence we’ve become accustomed to from him. When he hits the chorus his voice sort of falls apart and he screams his way through it while running all over the stage. The coaches seem thrilled by this performance and give him a standing ovation but I’m not impressed. Blake finds Will’s connection to the music to be an unbelievable gift. John loves the passion and emotion Will gave the song.”SEEexclusive predictions: Who will win ‘The Voice’?

‘The Voice’: Amazing Autistic Singer Inspires John Legend To Perform An Impromptu DuetИсточник: https://etcanada.com/news/511946/the-voice-amazing-autistic-singer-inspires-john-legend-to-perform-an-impromptu-duet/
John Legend is no ordinary duet partner!
The singer and his fellow coaches kicked off “The Voice” season 17 on Monday, and one of the hopefuls was so good, Legend had to get up and perform alongside him.
Will Bremen, a 25-year-old singer and guitar player, opened up in his introductory package about how performing and busking around his hometown of Santa Barbara, California, has helped him deal with his Asperger’s syndrome.
“I’m on the autism spectrum, I had pretty limited interests,” he explained. “It was hard not having a lot of friends growing up. I got told by some people that I wouldn’t amount to much. Music became my biggest solace, and helped me express my feelings in a way that would otherwise not come naturally to me.”
Bremen’s talent was impossible to ignore during his blind audition — where he put a fresh, soulful spin on the Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There.” Legend and Gwen Stefani both turned their chairs to welcome him on their team, and while the singer said he was a No Doubt fan when asked about his musical inspirations, he named Legend as one of the majors.
“I’m standing in front of him,” he marvelled. “You know, John Legend is one of those huge influences for me. I grew up listening to ‘Ordinary People.'”
Legend asked him to perform a little bit of his 2004 hit, and when Bremen paused, he jumped up to join him. “We’ll sing it together!”
The pair launched into the song, showing off Legend’s obvious skills and more of Bremen’s impressive talents as they harmonized together. And of course, there was really no hope for Stefani, as the singer picked Team John.
“I love Will, he’s so creative,” Legend said after the audition. “He reminded me of Bruno Mars in some ways, just being versatile. He could really be a successful artist.”
Earlier this month, ET’s Keltie Knight sat down with all of “The Voice” coaches as they prepared to kick off season 17 — with Legend as a returning champion.
“But I’m not resting on my laurels,” he warned. “We gotta go out and try to prove ourselves every time.”
