The Voice is back, and it's looking as strong as ever as Season 16 rolls through its blind auditions. There's been some incredibly talented performers only two episodes in, and it's led to the coaches being rather cutthroat with their blocks and getting into squabbles when forced to compete for a competitor. The latter was the case when an amazing act made show history, and became the first trio of performers to get selected in the competition. Check it out!
To get the serial killer jokes out of the way right now, The Bundys really "killed" that performance. John Legend took the wordplay another direction in his evaluation of the band, and started singing the Married...With Children theme to the sibling group as they prepared to hear Blake and Kelly's pitches to be their coach. Blake put up a good fight, but it was Kelly's mention of one of the group's favorite artists that led them to choose her.
The Bundys made The Voice history as the first trio of performers to have performed and get chosen by a coach. Long-time Coach Adam Levine admitted it was something he didn't know was possible, which seemed to be a reason he didn't press his button. To be fair, he would've almost certainly lost out to Kelly or Blake regardless, as the coach doesn't typically dabble country music acts. Apparently the sibling trio wasn't enough to make him take a chance.
There's a chance The Bundys could make history yet again in The Voice, as a group act has yet to be crowned the winner of the talent competition. There are duos like The Swon Brothers who have had fairly high placements in the competition, of course, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty, it's usually solo performers that find themselves in the late rounds and competing for that contract more often than not.
It's really too early to say how The Bundys will fare, as the blind audition rounds are still ongoing, and then there's the battle rounds and America's voting. The elaborate elimination process of The Voice has made it nearly impossible to predict which early hopefuls will end up taking the competition, and has led to some rather shocking eliminations. America may rally behind The Bundys unique story and sound, or drop them due to thinking 3 against 1 is unfair.
