‘The Voice’ Judges Want ‘Someone Like’ Angel Taylor

If you think Angel Taylor‘s name, face or voice sound familiar, it’s because they should. The Los Angeles native experienced mild success with her single ‘Like You Do’ in 2009 and 2010, being featured on ‘One Tree Hill’ and as a VH1 Artist on the Rise. When her deal with Columbia Records came to an end, Taylor still used music to “find hope in the blackness.”

Oh, and did we mention Taylor toured with none other than Adele? That experience came in mighty handy at her audition for ‘The Voice.’

Taylor performed her former tourmate Adele’s massive heartbreak hit ‘Someone Like You,’ and she blew away every man on the panel with her smoky vocals. Adam Levine picked her first, followed by Blake Shelton, then finally Cee Lo Green.

Levine said her voice was slightly off in the beginning, and Shelton cut him off, interjecting, “I thought she was good in the beginning.” Levine reminded Shelton that as a coach, he needs to be honest with his team in order to improve their performances. Fair enough, but you also have to butter them up to get them to join you first!

Cee Lo was all about technique, telling Taylor, “I enjoyed your performance. That low register is difficult to stay in.”

Taylor admitted she had a “massive crush” on Blake Shelton, who told her, “I don’t know what I can do for you, but I will be damn proud to try.”

Of course, Levine couldn’t let that go so easily. “I don’t blame you for having a crush on Blake,” Levine said.  ”He’s tall, handsome …” Shelton stood up and waved at the crowd as Levine continued, “but I do know what I can do for you. I did pretty well last year.”

You know how Christina Aguilera always says that Levine is a salesman? He’s a good one. “I think … ” Taylor eked out, “I’m going to go with Adam.”
