The Voice” has one more week of blind auditions before the competition moves on to the next round.

Going forward, “The Voice” will only be airing Monday nights, with the final blind auditions airing March 22.

Here’s a rundown of the eight singers who made it through on Monday night’s episode of “The Voice.”


Savanna Woods

Nick Jonas thought he was going to get Savanna Woods on his team by default, but then Kelly Clarkson turned at the very last minute.

After the 26-year-old singer from Washington performed The Cranberries’ song “Zombie,” Jonas told her he believed he could take her to the finale.

“I was able to really feel that you had something to say, and that’s the kind of artist I want to work with,” Jonas said.

“I don’t even know anyone that’s been like you on the six seasons I’ve been here,” Clarkson added.

Woods grew up in a musical family and has been writing songs since she was a toddler. Legend said he could hear the “confidence” in her voice and loved her “electricity and edge.”

“I’m rooting for you,” he said. “I hope you do very well.”

Woods’ pick: Team Kelly


Rachel Mac

In an ideal world, Rachel Mac would’ve ended up on Blake Shelton’s team. Mac — who at 15 is the youngest singer on “The Voice” this season — did a school presentation about Shelton when she was in the fifth grade.

But Nick Jonas was the only coach to turn during Mac’s performance of Patty Griffin’s “Let Him Fly.” All of the coaches, though, said they were impressed with Mac’s artistry, particularly at such a young age.

“You are ahead of the game at 15,” Clarkson said. “You have amazing tone.”


Lindsay Joan

Lindsay Joan grew up doing musical theater, landing in a national touring production of the Broadway show “Kinky Boots” after graduating high school.

But Joan, who’s always watched “The Voice” with her mom, had an unfulfilled dream of making it on the reality competition show.

“I would always tell her, ‘One day I’m going to be on this show and make you really proud,’” Joan said in a clip that aired before her audition.

Now Joan has made good on her promise.

The 22-year-old singer from San Diego performed Halsey’s “Nightmare” for her audition, getting chair turns from Jonas and Shelton and ultimately causing Clarkson to regret not throwing her hat in the ring.

Shelton and Legend both said they could sense Joan was a little nervous.

“I would be, too. This is the biggest stage in the world,” Shelton said, adding that he believed Joan could develop more confidence. “You’re going to be unstoppable. I really do think that.”

Joan’s pick: Team Nick


Rio Doyle

At 16, Rio Doyle is one of the younger singers on “The Voice” this season. Doyle said she was inspired to audition for the show after her mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

“I never pictured myself to be doing this so young,” she said in a clip that aired before her audition. “But I couldn’t be more blessed to have this opportunity.”

For her audition, Doyle sang Adele’s “When We Were Young” and ended up on Team Legend by default.

“How am I alone here?” Legend said after the singer’s performance. “Honestly, I think none of us could tell you were 16.”


Jordan Matthew Young

From the start, Jordan Matthew Young impressed all of the judges — especially Blake Shelton.

“You don’t sound like anybody in country music,” Shelton told the 34-year-old singer from Austin, Texas.

Originally from Roosevelt, Utah, Young has been touring and playing blues music for the last decade, according to a news release sent to the Deseret News. Like all musicians, the singer’s music career took a hit during the pandemic. Recently, he has been making a living fixing guitars and building houses with his dad.

But “The Voice” has given him a chance to continue sharing music. His performance of Keith Whitley’s “I’m No Stranger to the Rain” got a chair turn from everyone except Legend. Clarkson praised his “old-school country” sound, and Shelton said he liked the singer’s “gravely, baritone sound.”

Young’s pick: Team Blake


Zania Alaké

As a single mother of a 2- and 3-year-old, Zania Alaké has made a steady income as a banker over the last several years. But ultimately, Alaké said she wants to be a singer full-time.

“A chair turn proves to me that I have something,” the 34-year-old singer from Detroit said ahead of her “Voice audition. “This is where I’m supposed to be. I’m doing this for myself and I’m doing this for my two little kids.”

Both Legend and Clarkson, who praised Alaké’s “classic and timeless” voice, fought for the chance to coach Alaké this season.

Alaké’s pick: Team Legend


Savanna Chestnut

Savanna Chestnut is from a small, one-stoplight town in Kansas.

“Being such a small community, there weren’t a ton of musical opportunities,” the 25-year-old singer said in a clip that aired before her audition, adding that she would hang out at her grandparents’ bar and sing on karaoke night.

For her audition on “The Voice,” Chestnut said she wanted to show her “creative edge.” So she transformed the classic 1980s pop song “Hold Me Now” into a country ballad.

“If you strip away the dance beats, it’s really just a beautiful love song,” she said. “As a country artist, those lyrics speak to me.”

All of the “Voice” coaches said they were impressed with Chestnut’s artistry and unique interpretation, but Shelton was the only one to turn his chair, so Chestnut ended up on Team Blake by default.


Anna Grace

Although Anna Grace loved to sing, she was somewhat shy when it came to performing in public. But that all changed when she was 17.

On “The Voice,” Grace revealed that when she was 17, she had a blood infection that led to her going into septic shock. She was admitted to the hospital, and doctors weren’t sure she’d make it through the night.

“I remember thinking in that moment, ‘If i make it through this, I’m not going to be scared to sing in front of people anymore,’” Grace said.

Now, the 20-year-old singer from Milwaukee has received a four-chair turn on “The Voice.”

“This show is all about great voices, and you are one of the best we’ve heard,” Jonas said after Grace finished performing Billie Eilish’s “My Future.”

Grace’s pick: Team Kelly
