The celebrity coaches showcased their top talent on Monday night’s live episode of The Voice. While solid performances prevailed overall, a handful of the remaining contestants gave viewers at home a good reasons to vote for them.
Trevin Hunte blew viewers away by singing Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman.” He has never failed to impress the coaches and audience alike, but this performance was particularly special for the soulful crooner.
“I believe that you are going to be a blessing in so many lives,” his coach Cee Lo Green told him.
Adam Levine agreed: “You have this magical ability to just bring down this house every time you come here,” he said.
Team Blake Shelton‘s Cassadee Pope hoped to reach out to her father by singing Kelly Clarkson‘s “Behind These Hazel Eyes.” The song of love lost reflected the broken relationship Pope shared with her father, she said, and the coaches felt her pain.
“I got to feel your heart,” Christina Aguilera said in praise of the raw performance. The coach said she could relate, having experienced her own issues with her father.
Team Adam’s Bryan Keith has worked hard to leave his metal background and embrace more diverse music. “It’s a sign of growth for me,” he said. He proved his range when he belted out Amy Winehouse‘s “Back to Black.”
Levine was thrilled. “This was your day and this was your moment to show America what was happening,” the proud coach said.
Dez Duron on Team Christina was great vocally, but even better in terms of sex appeal. Singing Lauryn Hill’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” Duron had the female members of the audience swooning.
“That performance was impeccable,” Green said.
Aguilera, delighted by the response, promised “more to come” from Dez.
