The Voice Season 13 Premiere: How Did Jennifer Hudson Do as Judge?

The Voice Season 13 Premiere: How Did Jennifer Hudson Do as Judge?

"The Voice" returns on Tuesday, September 26 at 8 PM with more blind auditions.

Some interesting information was discerned during The Voice episode 2.

In the season premiere, the competition is fierce, the talent is exceptional and the surprises abound as coaches Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton all vie to discover and coach the next singing phenomenon from the country's best vocalists in the "blind auditions". Besides being one of country music's biggest stars, Shelton has a history of taking seasoned singers, including Craig Wayne Boyd and Jason "Sundance" Head, to "The Voice" title.

Danielle Bradbery is busy promoting her new single, "Sway", and readying her sophomore album, I Don't Believe We've Met, which comes out December 1.

Dylan Gerard, a 28-year-old nurse's assistant from Jacksonville, FL, sang "Say You Won't Let Go" and managed to convince both Adam and Jennifer to press their buttons.

All the judges added singers to their teams. If more than one celebrity turns their chair around, the contestant has the option to choose who they want to be coached by. But even so, she knows that her best shot at getting a meeting in Nashville is through Blake, so he barely even has to do the finger wiggle move for her to sign up for his squad.

Maharasyi was also on the receiving end of Jennifer being in coach mode. She still has those diva note runs on tap, of course, but she manages to mesh that soul with this Southern song without skipping too many beats.

After all four judges battled for her, Simpson selected Cyrus. She was probably won over by that note. "I'm here to win The Voice with a country artist, and, Red, you are as country as they get". He tells a amusing story about his previous experiences with Blake then the next artist on night two of the blind auditions takes the stage. Still, Miley spent all those years in pop, so she needs to prove herself by breaking a country newcomer.

Closing out the night, Ashland Craft gave a classic country performance of "You Are My Sunshine".

Cyrus tried to persuade Keisha to be on her team, and elevated her roots over Shelton's Oklahoma home town. Miley was beyond thrilled to have Ashland.

Outside of "The Voice", Shelton has managed to take home other wins such as the Billboard Music Award for top country artist and the People's Choice Award victor for favorite male country artist. "You have a voice, and I want to showcase that".
