After opening with a group performance of My Chemical Romance’s “Sing,” Christina Aguilera‘s and Cee Lo Green’s singers took the stage for their solos.
Devyn DeLoera and Diego Val strived to give it their all, but ultimately fell short. Team Christina’s DeLoera hoped to show viewers her softer side with a rendition of Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love,” but her vocals did little to convince the coaches that she had more than one singing style. Team Cee Lo’s Val banked on singing Enrique Iglesias’ sultry hit “Bailamos,” but didn’t wow the coaches.
Other competitors fared much better: Nicholas David on Team Cee Lo thrilled the coaches with an incredibly sexy and soulful take on Barry White’s “You’re the First, the Last, My Everything.” (Watch below if you’re on a desktop computer.)
The performance certainly got Adam Levine’s approval. “Barry White makes baby-making music,” he said. “And I want to make a baby now.”
De’borah did her coach Aguilera proud with Pink‘s “Who Knew,” and won over Green, who commended her ability to capture elements of pain, soul and swagger in a single performance. “I love you, I love what you do,” he said.
Trevin Hunte wrapped up the night with a captivating rendition of Michael Bolton’s “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You.” He might be on Team Cee Lo, but even Blake Shelton couldn’t deny his breathtaking performance.
The results show airs Thursday, but Shelton already has a long-term prediction of his own. “You have everything it takes to win The Voice,” he told a delighted Hunte.
