'The Voice' Recap: Jacquie Lee Slays In Emotional Performances
The Top 6 contestants on The Voice performed two songs each last night – one chosen by their coaches and one chosen by themselves. Powerhouse Jacquie Lee of Team Christina Aguilera stole the show with her emotional performances.
The Voice Recap: Cole Vosbury Performances
Cole Vosbury, the last remaining contestant on Blake Shelton’s team, performed Hall & Oates’ “Rich Girl,” as chosen by his coach. Cee Lo Green, Vosbury’s former coach, told the singer he was still rooting for him, while Adam Levine praised his arrangement. Vosbury chose to sing James Morrison’s “A Better Man” and dedicated it to his first love. The emotional performance balanced out his fun performance from earlier.
Tessanne Chin Performances
Tessanne Chin, one of three contestants on Levine’s team, started with Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.” While Chin was nervous because Marley is an important figure in her country, she slayed the song, as usual. She chose to perform ‘Unconditionally” by Katy Perry for her dedication song, in honor of her parents. While Perry’s songs tend to be difficult, Chin pulled out a great performance that leaves Coach Shelton gushing.
Matthew Schuler Performances
Matthew Schuler took on One Direction’s latest hit “Story Of My Life,” dedicating it to his parents. The coaches praised him on not staying stuck in the “Hallelujah” formula – the song stayed high on the iTunes charts for over a week – and having fun. Schuler took a soulful twist in his next performance, singing a strong rendition of “When A Man Loves A Woman,” as assigned by Coach Aguilera.
Will Champlin Performances
Will Champlin took the stage next, dedicating “A Change Is Gonna Come” to his wife and infant daughter. He lost himself in the song and the coaches noticed, praising his heartfelt performance. Coach Levine then assigned “Hey Brother” by Avicii. Champlin delivered a strong and fun performance, banjo in hand.
James Wolpert Performances
James Wolpert dedicated “Fell In Love With A Girl” by The White Stripes to his supportive father. He performs the song acoustic and the coaches praised his performance. For Wolpert’s second performance, Levine assigned Meatloaf’s “I’d Do Anything For Love.” The second performance was livelier than his first and Wolpert owned the stage.
Jacquie Lee Performances
Lee took on “Cry Baby” by Janis Joplin, as assigned by her coach. The power in her voice, yet again, certainly made the audience question how such a young girl can deliver so much emotion. For her dedication, Lee took on Aguilera’s own song “The Voice Within” in a performance that showed how similar Aguilera and Lee are. Her coach looked on, immensely proud.
