The Voice 21 Audition: Bella DeNapoli’s Pop Style Impresses (Video)

The Voice 21 Blind Audition Bella DeNapoli

It takes a minute, but coaches Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande and John Legend hit their buttons for Bella DeNapoli’s rendition of Danity Kane’s “Damaged” on The Voice.

Meanwhile, Blake Shelton’s feud with Ariana from Monday night (Read our Recap) seems to be over as he encourages her to turn for the budding pop diva from Long Island, New York. 

Bella and Ariana instantly bond over their shared Italian roots. Is the singer’s decision on which team to choose already made? Bella is over-the-moon excited that she got three chairs to turn. 

John finds the song choice interesting, and loves the arrangement. “You created this whole new version of the song,” he says. And while it had a singer-songwriter vibe at the beginning, she busted out the big notes at the end. “And then you were giving us the notes that these ladies are known for,” he says, gesturing at Ariana and Kelly on either side.

Kelly didn’t know the song, so the performance made her feel that she could be at Bella’s show. She adds that Bella’s ability to navigate “all those little colors” of her voice is important for a talent competition. “Each week you have to show them something different,” she says. 

“It’s great to have the ability to do a lot of different things with your voice,” Ariana observes. “Your control is great,” Ariana adds, “I love the different tools you have in your kit so that you can look for different places to implement them.” 

Blake admits that he got stuck on Bella spelling words in the song. He’s sort of kidding, but not entirely! It’s another way to say, “your genre is way out of my depth.” Then, he advocates for his former frenemy, Ariana. 

Which team will Bella choose? Tune into The Voice on NBC tonight (Sept 28) at 8 pm ET/PT to find out.
