Enid Ortiz “The Voice” Audition Video: Watch “All I Ask” Performance!
Enid Ortiz‘s audition on “The Voice” on Monday led to accusations of cheating against Blake Shelton. Watch below!
The 25-year-old medical assistant currently plays in a reggae, rock and funk fusion band, and said she was “ready for the opportunity on a larger scale.” She was happy, however, that she would be judged only on her voice, revealing that she suffers from vitiligo, which led to years of torment while growing up. With the panelists’ backs turned, as always, Ortiz sang a beautiful rendition of Adele’s “All I Ask.”
Stunningly, though, she sang and sang without a single coach turning around. Towards the end, Gwen Stefani even whispered, “She deserves to be on.” But it looked like she wouldn’t be… until Blake Shelton hit his button at the last second, shocking his colleagues, who were now unable to turn around, too.
Taken aback, Adam Levine announced, “That’s so dirty… that was the dirtiest thing I’ve ever seen.” Shelton was proud of his trickery, though, and actually took a few bows. He told Ortiz, “That was dirty, how I played, but I got you.”
Stefani asked, “Is that cheating, what you did?” An unashamed Shelton bluntly responded, “Yep.” And after Alicia Keys told Ortiz to “screw” the haters, the country superstar announced, “A toast to the big screw-you, starting with these three coaches who didn’t turn around for you.”
Stefani actually tweeted during the broadcast, “I’d like to toast @blakeshelton for being the BIGGEST cheater in Voice History!!! Everyone raise your glass & drink to Blake. I’ll toast to Enid, but not to @blakeshelton who tricked us all!” Check out the video below!
