D Smooth, real name David Mitchell, is a contestant on NBC’s The Voice Season 23. He decided to go on this competition to show the world what he has been sharing with Birmingham over the years at smaller venues. And once there, not only did he earn a chair turning from the judges, but also received the Playoff Pass. In the rest of the writing, let us tell you what the pass means, D Smooth journey so far in the competition, and about his life outside of The Voice.
D Smooth On The Voice
When The Voice dropped its playoffs during its May 1 (2023) episode, D Smooth was introduced as one of the four performers, from none other than Kelly Clarkson’s team.
During the April 3 episode, when D battled against ALI on Allen Stone’s “Unaware” during the April 3 episode, Chance the Rapper was looking forward to stealing him for his team. And just then Kelly took him to hers instead, using her Playoff Pass. This first-time power ever on the show allowed D to bypass the Knockout Round and go straight to the playoffs.
“I kinda feel bad because you might want to work with Chance, but I just don’t care. I love you. You have a gift to make it all the way to the finale.” Kelly told D that day.
Mary Kate Connor from Blake’s team, Ryley Tate Wilson from Niall’s, and Manasseh Samone from Chance were also given the Playoff Pass.
Among other things, D also thought of participating in Voice to inspire those with dreams of their own.
D, used to performing Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” before, sang just that song during his blind audition on this show. About it, D said his nerves were a bit raw as he began. But, any sign of nervousness soon vanished as Kelly turned her chair.
Ever since, D has been making the most of the opportunity with his vocal coaches, preparing for whatever’s next, one could tell.
D was not the only singer from Montgomery this season on The Voice. Fifteen-year-old Ryley Tate Wilson, who D refers to as his “Little Bro”, and Jerome Godwin III, 20, both from Team Niall, also have made it through the blind auditions.
