Flashback to Morgan Wallen on the Voice

Known for hits like The Way I Talk, and Whiskey Glasses, Morgan Wallen’s short stint at The Voice helped propel him to Country Music success.

He joined The Voice on its sixth season in 2014 but didn’t progress past playoffs.

Morgan Wallen is one of The Voice contestants who have proved that one doesn’t have to win at the reality show to conquer the music industry.

The exposure is enough to motivate the contestants who get eliminated to work on their craft independently, which is exactly what Morgan Wallen did.

For a reminder of Morgan’s stay at The Voice, you can count on this guide for a detailed flashback of the now platinum-selling and charting country music singer.

Who Was Morgan Wallen’s Coach on The Voice?

During his blind audition, Morgan Wallen performed Howie Day’s Collide.

He impressed Usher and Shakira, each turning their chair around to see the man who had put up a wonderful performance.

Morgan Wallen chose Usher’s team, making Usher his coach.

However, Morgan Wallen later ended up in Adam Levine’s team after the Maroon Five singer stole him when Usher preferred to retain Morgan’s competitor in the second battleground.

What Place Did Morgan Wallen Get on The Voice?

After a successful blind audition, Morgan Wallen delivered subsequent performances with songs like Avicii’s Hey Brother, and Story of My Life.

Morgan, however, didn’t succeed past the first round of The Playoffs after his Stay performance failed to impress the coaches.

Despite missing a chance to feature in live shows, Morgan Wallen was ranked among the Top 20 artists of the sixth season, finishing in the 20th position.

Who did Morgan Wallen Lose to on The Voice?

In the early stages of the competition, Morgan’s competitor in Usher’s team was Stevie Jo.

In their second battle round, Usher chose Steve over Morgan, prompting Adam Levine to steal him.

Morgan, therefore, lost first to Stevie Jo but still had a chance to prove himself under Adam’s team.

Unfortunately, Morgan Wallen lost for a second time to Jake Worthington, a country singer who eventually finished as a runner-up in the competition.

Was Morgan Wallen Discovered on The Voice?

Yes, Morgan Wallen was unknown to the Voice’s audience when he auditioned.

Unlike other contestants like Cassadee Pope, who had a music background and a following, Morgan didn’t have much to his name when he first appeared on The Voice.

 However, he didn’t take long to win the adoration of the audience and viewers alike, and by the time Morgan was leaving the stage after being eliminated, he was a different version of himself.

When he left the reality show, Morgan took his time to strategize his entry into the music industry.

His collaboration with Florida Georgia Line for Up Down was a successful hit that marked the beginning of his success in country music.

Was Morgan Wallen on American Idol?

No, Morgan Wallen has never been in American Idol as a contestant or in other capacities.

Morgan only contested on The Voice’s season 6 in 2014 but didn’t win.

He, however, used his experience at the contest to launch a successful country music career.
