Adam was not able to turn his chair but pointed out that his team was already full.
“My team is full, otherwise I would’ve turned around first,” Levine noted. “Not only am I sad that I didn’t turn around for you, but you could win this whole thing.” the Maroon 5 frontman boldly declared.
Gwen Stefani was next to comment and said, “First of all, I don’t have a beautiful Pocahontas, fairy princess, angel-like singer on my team. You’re creative with the way that you’ve performed and you seemed like a real honest artist, I can really help you on this journey, because I did this already. I feel like we could have such a connection. There’s like a pure artist coming from your heart”.
Pharell pitched, “I would be unbelievably appreciative to have the opportunity to aid you in that journey…Let me be the guy that can help you explore that side.”
And finally, there was Blake Shelton who seemed to be the judge who wanted Amy the most who compare Amy to Norah Jones and Colbie Caillat, the country superstar said, “I’m already sad right now, just thinking that I don’t probably seem like the right guy for you. But let me say this, I know that I’m looking at a superstar…I’m so impressed, please pick me”.
In the end, Amy picked Pharell but Shelton was happy she made it on the show and looked forward to the prospect of stealing her in a future episode.
