Blake Shelton secured an additional contestant for Team Blake on Tuesday evening (March 2) after an intense battle with fellow The Voice coach John Legend. 

Aaron Konzelman, 39, of Waco, Texas, auditioned for the hit NBC show with a cover of Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World.” His performance earned chair turns from Shelton and Legend. 

“We don’t get a lot of artists like you on this show,” Shelton told him, adding, “I’m guessing you perform a lot?”

Konzelman explained that he often performs with his wife and that their music falls within the Americana/ Folk/ Rock genres. 

“I think you and I musically have way more in common than you and John,” the country star went on to explain. “And I think playing it safe on this show is important!”

As Kelly Clarkson encouraged Konzelman to join Team Legend, the R&B singer praised his “infectious” voice, complimenting the “combination of being raspy and angelic at the same time.” 

“Not only can you sing, but you’re a real musician and you come with artistry,” Legend said. 

Shelton continued to try to convince him to join Team Blake and he was ultimately successful Konzelman chose to join his team. 

“You’re welcome to take my bobblehead and put it on your dash,” the “Minimum Wage” singer told him.
