Kris Thomas - Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Kris Thomas

The first Memphian to be picked to a team during blind auditions was Kris Thomas, a graduate of Trezevant High School.

Shakira was the only judge to turn her seat around, but the others admit that they were fooled by his voice and high notes as he belted out the Whitney Houston favorite "Saving All My Love For You".

"I wish I knew you were a guy," Adam Levine said after he turned around.

When Shakira found out Thomas was a man, she kept a straight face so that she wouldn't tip off the fellow judges.

"I'm so glad you're on my team because you're a champ. Your control, falsetto, pitch, I loved it."

"In my four seasons, I've never seen anything like that before," added Levine.
