Ian Harrison The Voice
Columbus, Ohio native Ian Harrison is a contestant on the NBC singing competition “The Voice” season 22. Harrison performed “The Night We Met” by indie rock band Lord Huron during his Blind Audition.
Country singer Blake Shelton was the first to turn his chair for the central Ohio singer, followed by Gwen Stefani and then John Legend, leaving new coach Camilla Cabello the only coach to not turn around for the musician, which she later regretted.
A moment after his performance showcased Harrison’s Buckeye pride when fellow Ohioan, Legend, gave the state’s famous call-out “O-H” to which the 20-year-old replied “I-O.”
Legend complimented the quality of Harrison’s voice in his pitch to coach the young talent.
“I think everybody was impressed with the character of your voice,” said Legend. “It just has this tone that’s really enchanting and it sounds good singing so many things and it’s always fun to work with artists like that.”
Shelton revealed his inner struggle about the performance and what ultimately made him turn his chair for the young singer.
“I was waiting for a moment where I, ‘He’s going to have to do something bigger here,’ and then it finally dawned on me, ‘He doesn’t have to do that,’ because your performance was so powerful with just the character of your voice that I was finally like, ‘This guy’s already done every single thing he needs to do for me to hit my button,’ so I hit it, man,” Shelton said. “I’d be proud to be your coach, dude.”
However, it was Stefani’s speech that swayed Harrison into joining her team.
“I think you’re just a super-interesting artist,” said Stefani. “You showed me your heart, it was very pure. I think it would be really fun to work together because I come from that kind of background — been in a van, we just got together and, like, asked my dad for five bucks for a microphone and go to rehearsals — it’s like, homemade.”
“And just because you have more of a character voice than like, a styled, fancy voice that’s kinda like me as well. Like, I’m trying to just show my heart to people. So, I would love to be your coach, I think it would be really cool to work with you.”
Before Harrison made his final choice to join Team Gwen, Cabello expressed her disappointment with not turning around for Harrison.
“You have a really beautiful voice and I was so, so, so close to turning around darn it, and I should have turned around for you,” Cabello said.
