BWW Recap: THE VOICE - Top Six Sing Two Songs, Showing Off Range and Versatility
As we slowly reach the finale of The Voice on December 16th, the show is going to offer more abilities to see the artists' potential. This week, each contestant will sing two songs: one chosen by their coach, and one that they chose and dedicate to anyone in their lives.
First up we have Cole with his song chosen by Blake, which is "Rich Girl" by Hall and Oates. We got to see a bit behind the scenes, and we see that Blake got Cole a new guitar! After his song, Blake called him a pro, and said the song was perfect. Both CeeLo and Adam agreed, saying that it was a great performance. CeeLo said he was happy that Cole was still in the competition.
Next is Tessanne's song that was chosen by Adam "Redemption Song" by Bob Marley. Adam said that he knew what the song meant to her, and that it's hard to take ownership of a song, but she did, and she made everyone in Jamaica, as well as everyone else, is proud of her. Christina agreed with Adam, saying that she got lost in the song, and that she did a really lovely job.
Matthew Schuler went next with a song that he chose, "Story of My Life" by One Direction, which he dedicated to his family. Christina said he did a great job making the song his own and the choir that he had behind him made it special. Adam said that, while he didn't know the song (much to Blake's upheaval), he said Matthew does a great job making every song his own.
Will Champlin's song that he chose came next, "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke, which he dedicated to his wife and daughter, since a change is going to come to them soon. Adam loved the fact that Will played the piano during the song and he loved the courage he had to sing the song and do it his way, and felt that the song was genuine and real. CeeLo agreed, saying "You definitely got soul, and you have heart" and that he deserves to be alongside the amazing singers that have covered that song.
James Wolpert's song that he chose was next, which is "I Fell In Love With a Girl" by the White Stripes, and dedicated it to his father because he's always encouraged him to have fun and do what he wants. Adam liked that the song brought the simplicity back to his voice, instead of going for huge notes. Blake loved it so much that he didn't even notice he messed up a little! That's when you know you're good!
Jacquie Lee sang Christina's choice song for her, which was "Cry Baby" by Janis Joplin. Christina said that she laid her heart and soul on the floor, and came up onstage to show that she showed that when she left the microphone stand on the ground. Adam said that if this is what Jacquie sings like when she's never had her heart broken, he can't imagine what it'll be like when she does.
