Blake Shelton’s Team on ‘The Voice’ Includes Iowa Native
Tuesday night's 'The Voice' included an Iowa native revealing which team she wanted to be on. It didn't come as a surprise to anyone that she chose Team Blake, headed up by country superstar Blake Shelton.
Cali Wilson, a native of Salem, Iowa, just southwest of Mt. Pleasant, performed to conclude Monday night's episode.
Wilson, 28, sang Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and one note during her performance got both Blake Shelton and John Legend to turn their chairs around during what's called The Blind Auditions. In the end, only one of the four coaches wouldn't be impressed enough to turn around.
Following her performance, the show turned into a chat between Cali and Blake. After Blake said he'd been to Salem, Iowa several times, Cali recalled seeing Blake at the town's only gas station. The other coaches seemed shocked and viewers may have doubted it, but Blake Shelton is an avid hunter who comes to Iowa often. At that point, anyone watching had to know Cali Wilson being on Team Blake was a forgone conclusion. During Tuesday's episode, she confirmed it.
Here's the video of Cali's performance from Monday night:
