Nineteen-year-old Samantha Howell from Virginia delivered an audition with incredible range, proving that she’s one of the season’s foremost country singers. Her audition featuring REO Speedwagon’s “Take It On The Run” couldn’t have been better, presenting pure perfection with every word.
Blake, or rather ‘Block’ Shelton certainly doesn’t miss a thing, immediately noticing that he was blocked when Kelly turned. She made sure that there weren’t going to be two country stars fighting for this country star. After a brilliant showing, Nick tried his best to win her over by reminiscing over how her voice took him back to his wedding dance. Yet, it was to no avail with Team Kelly becoming one stronger.
Even though Virginia Beach singer Samantha Howell sounds made for country, she is open to all types of music. The extraordinarily talented artist delivered a breathtaking blind audition, taking REO Speedwagon’s “Take It On The Run” and claiming it in her own distinct style.
