Tattoos, 4-Chair Turns, the Perfect Smile and a Boo Complete the Final Night of The Voice Blind Auditions!

The coaches were alternately holding out on and vying for their faves, to make for an exciting Blinds finale!
Even though I love the Blind Auditions, by the end of tonight, I'm ready to move on to the Battle Rounds. Who's with me on this???
On to the recap!
Tonight's Top Performances go to...
"A Thousand Years," Matt McAndrew #TeamAdam
Matt has a funky look to him that is endearing, tattoos and all. Watching him tutor kids kind of did me in. However, I'm happy to say, it was his voice that completely blew me away. The quiet softness exuded a vulnerability that was completely genuine and sincere. Adam grabbed himself a top contender with Matt.
"Best Thing I Never Had," Beth Spangler #TeamAdam
With a solid performance from Beth, the last 4-chair turn of the season was a fight to the finish for the coaches. Gwen and Blake couldn't bribe her with their overall connections and Pharrell's stand-up was unconvincing. Adam ended with such a strong team, there will be plenty for the others to steal.
"Secrets," Ryan Sill #TeamGwen
Not only does this guy have a great voice, he has perfectly white teeth. So white, that I was a little distracted by them. Ryan started out a little shaky, but in the end, he brought it and left me wanting to hear more. I was surprised he went with #TeamGwen, but I'm hoping it's a good fit.
"Let Her Go," Justin Johnes #TeamBlake
Last but certainly not least, was this 15-year old YouTube artist that performed for the first time on The Voice stage. Yowza. Twitter erupted and girls all over the nation, fell in love. Team Blake has a boo.
