Not only is the Top 11 Voice hopeful a tremendously talented young woman with a booming voice in her own right, she’s managed to single-handedly neutralize Team Blake. Voice coach Adam Levine may have snagged Brown out of a desire to troll long-time rival Blake Shelton by winning The Voice with a country artist, but he also found a way to split the country vote and protect non-country artists.
