Gwen Stefani snatches singer from bickering coaches
Stefani emerged victorious in the fourth round of blind auditions when she tagged Tanner Howe, a 29-year-old freelance artist from Huntington Beach, California. Howe’s “Mercy” Soaring Cover by Shawn Mendes not only earned him a three-chair turn from Stefani and coaches Blake Shelton and john legendit also created friction between Shelton and Legend.
“Your voice sounds really good in the low end. It was a little off there, but once you got up into that tenor section of your voice, it was so clear and so powerful,” Legend said. to Howe “I would love to work with you and help you make the most of the amazing voice you have.”
Shelton immediately disagreed with Legend’s interpretation of Howe’s voice. “I don’t think you should sag like he suggests and not get better,” he said. “That’s the whole point of being on this show, it’s getting over that hump.”
Ultimately, Howe was influenced by his connection in Cali with Stefani (Shelton’s wife), choosing the ‘Orange County Girl’ to be his coach.
“See John, your insistence on fighting me has derailed both of us,” Shelton said. “Stop trying to argue with me.”
