Watch a sneak peek of ‘The Voice’ blind audition that wowed coaches

NBC’s “The Voice” may have found its next champion in a Nashville-based singer-songwriter. (It wouldn’t be the first time.)

Earlier this year, Dave Fenley floored coaches Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson with his “blind audition” on the singing competition — performing an acoustic cover of Travis Tritt’s “Help Me Hold On,” reports The Tennessean, which is part of the USA TODAY Network. 

Fenley’s audition is set to air Monday night, but “The Voice” has already posted a sneak peek online to stir up excitement.

Fenley had a robust, gritty and soulful take on Tritt’s 1990 ballad. The audition had Clarkson turning her chair around first, followed by Shelton, who made it clear he knew all the words by heart. 

Both coaches then made their pitch to Fenley to join their team. Shelton tried to bond with him over Tritt trivia — “That was his second single. That was right after ‘Country Club,’ wasn’t it?” — while Clarkson rolled her eyes.
