Blake Shelton The Voice Coach Performance

The Voice Shelton Levine 14

Kelly Clarkson is a coach on season fourteen of "The Voice", and she and NBC are working hard to make sure the world is aware.

Along with her new role, the acclaimed singer-songwriter also recently released her eighth highly-anticipated new album, "Meaning of Life". Clarkson, Levine and Keys all turned for her. Clarkson wished she had blocked Keys.

Clarkson found fame after winning the first season of American Idol, something that spurred her decision to take a spot in one of The Voice's red chairs.

The 32-year-old, originally from Benton, Kentucky, sang Kenny Chesney's "Never Wanted Nothing More" and had coaches Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson vying for him to join their teams. Is she your favorite coach and will she be the reason that you will tune in each week? Immediately capturing the judges' attention was the voice of 18-year-old Je'Dah Palmer, who wowed the A-listers and viewers at home with her polished runs and bluesy tone.

Who is Kyla Jade? Keys even used her block on Shelton. He performed "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey, and he got Levine's and Keys' seal of approval.

The 21-year-old Kelsea Johnson dedicated her audition to her late grandfather who was a mariachi performer. Her most recent gig has been to sing backup vocals for Jennifer Hudson for the past three years, so she's just gotta have the skinny on how the process works, what the coaches are looking for, and whom to choose if and when she does get a bid. Rayshun got a chair turn from Adam and Alicia, who were surprised that he wasn't white, and Kelly, who was surprised by all the tears streaming down her face. Blake came out the victor, as Baird joined his team.

Drew Cole performs "Sex And Candy" while he plays the guitar and Adam turns around nearly instantly and is very into his performance. Alicia and Blake turn their chairs, Kelly and Adam don't.

Kaleb Lee, 31, Ormond Beach, Florida: His tearful story about his son's Nicaraguan adoption brought me to tears, but this is a competition and these teary-eyed stories make you hope these guys can sing. "And I want to be captivated", she says.

The premiere featured nine blind auditions, and Clarkson ended up getting three on her team, while the others equally had two at the end of the show. What did end up perhaps symbolically killiing Shelton was the fact that King chose to go with Clarkson.

From there, things began to get hairy between Shelton and Clarkson. He ultimately joined Team Kelly.
