Oklahoma country music star Blake Shelton and R&B hitmaker Usher will narrow their teams down to four contestants each as the knockout rounds continue tonight on “The Voice.”
That means Muskogee sibling duo The Swon Brothers, contending on Team Blake, will be competing for their chance to go to the live rounds on Season 4 of the hit reality TV show.
“The Voice” airs at 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
“Our parents made us sing together,” Zach, 28, said with a laugh during a recent conference call. “We’re not the best duo that’s ever been on the show, I’m sure, but I think we are just so comfortable with each other, it really helps us when it comes to high-pressure situations, you know. And I know that I could not be on that stage without him, and I wouldn’t want to.”
In 2008, Colton, 24, made it solo into the top 48 on rival reality show “American Idol,” but he prefers singing with his sibling, too.
“I would think the edge that we have definitely comes from the harmony — just the brother harmony — because some of these battles kind of get stressful … and just having the other person to lean on during this whole thing, I think that’s a big, big advantage. Because if you’re going through this alone — I can’t imagine doing this alone. It would be pretty tough without my brother,” he said.
