The Voice Season 7 Premiere Recap [WATCH VIDEOS]

The Voice” Season 7 has finally premiered, and we are just so happy to see the coaches back, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. The two new coaches just made things even better as they graced the contest with their presence, Gwen Stefani and Pharell Williams. Read on to learn more about the Season 7 premiere.

Stefani and Williams were so comfortable during the whole show. It’s as if they have been coaching for years now.  It was so nice to see that they are enjoying what they are doing. There were a few banters to each other during the show, and there was one when Levine noticed how comfortable Williams and Stefani were and called their attention, telling them that it was still his show. The whole thing was really nice.


So who made it to the show?

Luke Wade, 31, Dublin, Texas

He sang a rendition of “That’s How Strong My Love Is,” and the coaches have given their insights on how they can improve Wade’s voice and a few sweet words to persuade him to join their respectable teams. Wade chose to be on Pharell’s team.

Clara Hong, 22, Atlanta

Clara had three chairs swiveled in front of her when she started singing “Chuck E.’s in Love” by Rickie Lee Jones. Levine and Williams wrote poems to persuade Clara to join their teams, and she chose to be in Levine’s team.

Damien works for the Transportation Security Administration at Los Angeles International Airport, and he was involved in the 2013 open fire at a security checkpoint, in which his partner got shot in the leg and another agent was killed. After this whole incident, it inspired him to pursue his musical dreams because he realized how life is so short. He sang “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday,” and he was able to turn four chairs. He got so emotional and Stefani gave him a hug. Damien chose Levine’s team.
