Corey Kent White The Voice Audition Video: Singer Sparks Toughest, Funniest Coaches’ Fight — WATCH HERE!
Corey Kent White sparked one of the toughest and funniest battles of “The Voice” season 8 blind auditions on Tuesday. Watch below!
The 20-year-old revealed he first started playing guitar at 8 and performed in his first show at 11, joining a western band called Oklahoma Stomp. He continued pursuing music throughout his youth, and joined a new band at university. But now tired of playing “the college circuit,” White viewed “The Voice” as “invaluable exposure,” and hoped to get at least one chair to turn.
Well, he got twice that when he sang “Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band. Funnily enough, Blake Shelton and Pharrell kept urging Adam Levine to push his button… and then the pair turned around themselves! Though it was just two coaches competing to get White on their team, neither was willing to let the other one win out.
Pharrell began by noting that he’s comfortable working in every genre, and said that White was an example of “everything that I always preach.” Shelton touted his success with former contestants The Swon Brothers, and noted that unlike some other country stars, White has the goods not just in his head, but also in his heart. Pharrell was not having it, though, and hilariously took off his jacket saying, “I can’t sit back like this. I can’t,” and went on stage to make a more intimate pitch.
Making things even more amusing, Levine then went on stage to plead a case against Shelton. And this actually went on for several minutes. But what did White decide? Well, apparently Oklahoma boys need to stick together. Check out the full video below!
