The first night of the Knockout Rounds on ‘The Voice’ ended with a match up made in heaven — Taylor Phelan and Luke Wade went head to head for a spot on the live shows! Being their judge, Pharrell had a hard decision to make and he ended up letting Taylor, a fan favorite, go! Luckily, Adam was their to swoop him up on to his team!
As usual, the Knockout Rounds on The Voice were tough with the judges having to make some pretty hard decisions. The most difficult choice of the night came when Pharrell paired Taylor Phelan and Luke Wade up against each other! Do you think Pharrell gave Adam Levine the winner when he let Taylor go? Check out the reasons why Adam just gained the potential winner of season 7!
Taylor Phelan — Three Button Steal During Knockout Rounds
After Taylor and Luke performed during the Knockout Rounds, Pharrell was faced with the difficult decision of who to keep on his team. Luke Wade sang Rich Girl by Hall & Oates and Taylor Phelan sang Rather Be by Clean Bandit. Both singers did an amazing job but Pharrell ended up choosing Luke!
Immediately after Luke was named the winner, Adam and Gwen both started warming their hands up in preparation for hitting their steal buttons for Taylor! Adam even jokingly stood up to get a back stretch in — too funny! “You’re an idiot,” Adam said to Blake when he was the only judge who did’t push his steal button. “Watch this,” Blake replied as he proceeded to hit his button — making Taylor the night’s most desirable contestant!
Poor Pharrell — he gave up a singer that all three of the other judges wanted desperately. Adam told Pharrell that he made a mistake — he sure did! Taylor may just win this whole thing!
Taylor chose to join Team Adam for the remainder of the season!
Unforgettable Audition Performance With A Four Chair Turn
Taylor blew America away during the Blind Auditions when he sang a unique version of the song, Sweater Weather. All four judges turned their chairs for him!
His audition video on The Voice‘s YouTube page has nearly 1 million views — one of the most views out of any other remaining contestants! Many fans commented on the vid expressing how much they prefer his version of the song to the original!
Taylor Is Now On Team Adam
The fact that Taylor is now on Team Adam is exciting for a number of reasons. First of all, it seems as if Taylor fits better with Adam’s musical vibe. Although Pharrell is extremely talented and will probably be a great coach, Adam has way more experience on the show and will help Taylor to really make it to the end!
