-You did? -He did.
-Oh. -He’s a liar.
-Oh, my God! I love you! ♪♪ -That was so good! Ohh! Who did it?! You did it, cowboy!
-It was Blake Shelton. -No!
-Now, excuse me, Kelly. -Take my jacket.
-You’re not a part of this conversation, Kelly,
unfortunately. What is your name,
and where are you from? -My name is Katie Kadan. I’m a professional musician
in Chicago. I’ve only been doing it
for about eight years. -Okay.
-Oh, my God. -I was afraid to perform. I was a chubby chick
living in a skinny girl’s world. -[ Laughs ]
-So I didn’t feel too good about it, but now I’m okay.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Katie, you came in here
and rocked this audience. -Thank you so much. -You know, some singers
come in here, and they’re technically
very good, but they don’t give you
any kind of thrill… -Passion.
…-because there’s no rock-‘n’-roll energy. And you gave us all of that, every bit of rawness
and the fire in your voice. And then I turn around, and you’re, like, just this
fountain of excitement. You’re perfect for this show. You’re gonna do so well.
-Aww. Thank you! -This show is so incredible
’cause people don’t realize, when you’re blind,
turned that way — I was picturing Cee Lo.
You know what I thought of? I thought of one of my favorite
bands, um, Alabama Shakes. -Brittany Howard.
-I think that the most infectious part about you is,
I was already 100% in when I was turned around
listening. I mean, I was like,
“Oh, okay, flawless.” That’s what we need
in the music industry, is just a revamp of actual
talent, like, and that’s what you are.
-Yes. -And that’s what Blake
took from us! -[ Laughs ] -You’re not in this
conversation, Kelly. -I know!
Did you block me, sir? -Blake blocked you.
-No, that’s not — -I promise you
Blake blocked you. -I am gonna take you down,
Shelton! -He — [ Laughs ] -We know for a fact
that I didn’t do it ’cause I’m telling you
I didn’t do it. -I know, ’cause you’re not
a liar, but you are! -So I know “Block” Shelton
did it. -“Block” Shelton.
-That’s not true. -Is that true?
-No! -But, Katie, this is not about
Blake and his lying ways. It’s about you. And I want
the other coaches to sell you before you decide
to join my team. -Blake’s gonna sell you
a stinker. It’s not gonna be a good car.
[ Laughter ] -I’m sorry that John took the opportunity away from
you to work with Kelly. -It’s really sad to build
a relationship on a lie. -That’s how you make it
in the music industry! -Oh, my God.
[ Laughter ] -Katie, I was in…
Chicago last week. -Oh, great, and you got
some Garrett’s popcorn. Live your dream.
You’re not gonna get her. [ Laughter ] -I was walking around,
and I felt…something. [ Laughter ] -And then he went
to the bathroom. -And I was like, “What is this? I’ve never felt this connection
to Chicago before, you know? It’s like, what is –” And now it all makes sense. I mean, you see this,
the eye I’m giving you? -I’m seeing it.
-Fight it. -Keep on talking me into it,
Blake. -Look.
-Keep on talking. -I don’t know how you rock
like you do, but you rock. -Thank you.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Thank you, because you made the
show better this year already by being on it. I know now Gwen’s gonna talk about how she’s a rock legend
and all that stuff, but I have the connection
to Chicago. I’m just saying.
[ Laughter ] -I was the one
that flew him to Chicago, so he can just, you know…. But, seriously, you think about
the people that actually — I just dribbled on myself. Um, you —
-She is salivating over you. [ Laughter ]
-You’re welcome. -But —
[ Laughter ] -Yes, Katie!
-Too much? Too much? -Yes!
-But that’s exactly right. The people that actually
rise to the top — it’s really personality
and originality that people are attracted to. It’s not just
your incredible voice, but to be able to showcase
that God-given gift. I think, on this show, you would just have to pick
the right songs, pick the right outfits,
which you already are doing… -Thanks, Gwen.
-…and just — just be you. And I can help you be you, so I
would love to be your coach. -So, Katie, who are you gonna
pick as your coach? [ Audience shouting ] [ Dramatic music playing ] -John or Gwen, John or Gwen,
John or Gwen, John or Gwen. -I pick…
