I nominate Kim Cherry, but this one might be a close 2nd. It’s not bad, just not very interesting or unique in any way. 

yea i agree, Nelson's audition was mediocre imo but at least they leaked a 4-chair turn where a coach used their block.

 

Kim's audition being leaked was just... extremely baffling. Especially because she only turned 2 chairs and her audition was not worth being leaked, even moreso being for the PREMIERE.

They have more effective ways of pimping the TCO now. The audience is too smart after 17 seasons. If they make it too obvious, too much early pimping can backfire. This one was probably chosen for the reasons you mentioned, and I’m not expecting Nelson to be a contender.

I think they were trying to look for something sensation/eye-catching/unexpected, which honestly I consider better than a mediocre (sorry!) audition that for whatever reason got 4 chairs and a block. I would argue that there are many auditions without the 4 chairs and the block that are better than those that do have 4 chairs and a block.

Hey everyone, so a while back (before reveal day, etc.), I spoke with a source and they gave me a list of the 10 people who ended up on John's team. They asked me not to make the list public, but now with Nelson's audition just being released, I asked them again if it would be fine to share the list and they said it would be.

 

Obviously with such a strong claim, I wasn't immediately sure to trust it or not, but this person was the source that gave me Brittney Allen and Mike Jerel - both of whom ended up revealing soon after - so I decided to trust it.

 

Anyways, these are the 10 names that, according to the source, - make up John's post-blinds team:

Brittney Allen

Cam Wesley

Cedrice Webber (1 chair - final chair turn of season)

Darious Lyles

Mandi Castillo (4 chair)

Mike Jerel

Nelson Cade III (4 chair)

Thunderstorm Artis (4 chair)

Zach Day

Zan Fiskum

So we know that Zan, Mandi and Thunderstorm won their battles while Cam and Cedrice lost them. That would leave space for only two more names winning their battles from this list.

We discussed this when they leaked Kim’s video. She was one the most relatable contestants ever. If Team.Minivan could sing, they’d be Kim Cherry!.

If Team Minivan could sing, they’d probably choose a different genre, though. She was a gimmick act who made it further than anyone expected. In real life, her act probably isn’t so gimmicky, but that’s the role she played on TV.

Well, from that list, I'm glad that it looks like Nelson picks John.  I really thought he'd practically gift-wrapped him to Blake by blocking Nick.  I don't even know why John did block Nick.  He didn't sound like he was in his particular lane at all!

Nope. TLC is exactly the kind of thing a 45 yo mother of 3 would sing at karaoke night to seem cool.

45? The median viewer is 60. I don’t know whether they know who TLC is, but I agree there’s a faction of female viewers who identify with Kim and Katie, but clearly not enough to put them over the top.

The average viewer is 60, but surely you don’t think Team Minivan is that old? Team Minivan is another way to say “ soccer mom”.

We need to nail down the definition of “team minivan.”  There are definitely soccer moms in their 50s, approaching 60, but we’re getting lost in the weeds here. I know what you meant, and agree with you.

The average viewer is less a minivan driving mom than a grandma who buys comfortable clothes from QVC!
