Why OK3’s “Heart-Racing” 4-Chair Blind Sparked the Coaches’ Most Chaotic Brawl Yet

Sometimes, no matter how great the Artists are, The Voice Coaches steal the show.

By Matthew Jackson

Getting a Four-Chair Turn on The Voice is coveted for a lot of reasons. It's impressive, of course, and it's an ego boost, sure, but it also presents you with options. If you come on the show, presumably you know which Coach might be a great fit for you already, and if you get all Four Chairs, you can easily take the option you want. Granted, a Four-Chair Turn also means that the Coaches are all ready to fight for you, and sometimes the fighting gets out of hand.

How to Watch

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

Kenna, Sierra, and Courtney are childhood friends who perform together as OK3 (so named because they're three girls from Oklahoma). After meeting through their shared vocal coach, they performed together as teenagers before splitting up and going their separate ways. Then came The Voice, with its history of previously successful groups of contestants, and the trio saw an opportunity to reunite and pool their talents for a shot at the spotlight.

Needless to say, they came prepared, with a harmony-packed cover of Meghan Trainor's "Made You Look," and the Coaches were all suitably impressed.

Almost immediately, three Chairs turned, as Coaches Reba McEntire, John Legend, and Dan + Shay all immediately wanted to watch the trio perform the rest of their number. Coach Chance the Rapper took a little longer, listening intently to the harmonies, before finally hitting his button and completing the Four-Chair hat trick. In the end, all five Coaches were dazzled by OK3, and that meant they had to launch serious campaigns to get the trio on their teams.

"I grew up arranging songs for groups, and then when I went to college I was like an award winning acapella arranger," Legend said. "If there's nothing else that I do, I do this. I feel like there's a lot of space for a big pop girl group right now, and I would love to be your Coach."

"My heart is racing right now because I want you guys so bad," Shay Mooney said. "That was my favorite performance that we've seen so far."

Even as Dan + Shay made their case, Legend kept trying to get a word in, until the duo finally pointed out that they're more than just arrangers for groups.

As Mooney put it: "We're literally in a group! This is literally what we do!"

Legend, not to be outdone, declared "I need a partner to help me advocate," then hit his button, summoning a bright blue inflatable tube man from behind his chair with "PICK TEAM LEGEND" plastered across its body. By the time it was Chance's turn to talk himself up, he was almost too stunned to get his words out.

"I feel like John doing that inflatable tube man thing has taken all of my spirit away. It's so loud and distracting," he said. "They're in a group, and John arranged for groups, but I have a '3' hat, so..."

When it was McEntire's turn, she also revealed props, barely starting to talk before noticing something else in her chair, and pulling out a Grammy Award.

"We have three of those in the duo/group category," Dan + Shay countered. 

"But did you bring 'em today? I travel with mine," McEntire said.

After what was truly one of the wildest Coach debates we've ever seen on The Voice, OK3 was so stunned that they had to bring their vocal coach over to give them feedback. So, who did they pick? 

Ultimately, they went with Team Legend!

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC, and streams the next day on Peacock.
