Team Usher Takes Center Stage In The Final Night Of Playoffs
T.J. Wilkins: He sang “Tell Me Something” and the judges loved him. He started off with a ton of energy and set the bar really high. The judges said he was a representation of what R&B soul really is. Everyone was so happy for him.
Melissa Jimenez: She opted to sing Beyonce’s hit song, “Halo,” and she was radiant. Shakira and Adam Levine weren’t really sure about it because they said it was a song everyone knew so it was up for criticism. Blake called it solid, “pretty dang good,” but no one is too thrilled.
Stevie Jo: He sang “The Thrill Is Gone,”he was incredibly soulful and the audience was so in love with it. Adam and Shakira loved it and Usher said he was a fan of how courageous he was to pick this song.
Bria Kelly: She sang “Wild Horses” and played her guitar which was such a nice touch. She had the entire crowd on their feet and her performance sounded a lot like Melissa Etheridge, is was awesome. Usher seemed to be a big fan but didn’t want to give her too many compliments because her performance spoke for itself — it was amazing.
Josh Kaufman: Josh sang “It Will Rain,” and it was like a dark horse, we had no clue he would blow everyone away! Usher said that he did an incredible job and we have to agree!
