Session singer…and Dad…Adam Cunningham gets the night of auditions started off with his performance of The Allman Brothers hit “Midnight Rider”. It wasn’t until the last second of the song that Jennifer and Blake pushed their buttons. During the audition, Jennifer kept standing up.

Calling it the hardest decision, Shiloh chose Miley saying that Miley would be good for her voice.
Samantha Rios failed to turn any chairs despite being a member of the Children’s choir who performed six times at the White House. Miley said that there were so many moments when Samantha was close.

Worship leader Davon Fleming became the first four chair turn of the night and had Jennifer throwing things again and brought the coaches to their feet.

Noting that they both love Whitney Houston, Jennifer sang “I Will Always Love You” with Davon. Saying that Davon is going to be in the finale, Blake noted that the best way to inspire others is to win the show; adding that he has won the show five times. Noting that Davon has his own style, Miley said that she was happy to see him in all his glory when she turned around. Adam noted that having a bond and the same taste is a good thing but it is more important to have someone who will take you where you want to go. Davon choe Jennifer to be his coach.

After getting no chairs to turn around last season, Adam Pearce returns this season with a performance of “Hot Blooded” by Foreigner. This time Miley and Adam turned around for Pearce. Adam noted that Pearce was wild and crazy but controlled and refined at the same time. Adam noted that people were cheering even before he started singing. Calling his voice ridiculous, Miley said that every single note was on. Jennifer said that she didn’t turn around because she didn’t think she had anything to offer Pearce. Blake said that he thought the Adam Pearce should choose Miley because he thinks it will be cool for them to sing “Wrecking Ball” together. Adam Pearce chose Adam Levine to be his coach.
Multi instrumentalist, dancer, and singer Myles Frost chose the Stevie Wonder song “My Cherie Amour” for his audition but failed to turn any chairs. While the coaches agreed that Myles had a good voice, nerves got the better of him. The coaches invited Myles to come back and get them all to turn around.
IN the final audition of the night, 16 year old Mariah Formica rocked “The Voice” stage with her rendition of Heart’s “Crazy on You”. The rocking teen has opened for Michael Sweat and performed on his record. Mariah became the second artist of the night to turn all four chairs. Miley said that she had a feeling the voice was bigger than Mariah. Adam called her a pint sized powerhouse; adding that Heart’s getting old and Mariah could be in the band. Adam noted that Maria is an old soul with good knowledge of rock and roll; adding that she could be the next great female rock and roll singer.
