How do you make a contestant choose you over Blake Shelton? Well, sing a duet with him! That’s what Christina Aguilera does to impress Joe Maye, the incredibly talented singer who auditions on the March 8 episode of ‘The Voice.’ You have to watch this duet!
Who could say no to Christina Aguilera‘s voice?! Spoiler alert: the answer is no one. This week, Blake Shelton and X-Tina spin their chairs for returning contestant, Joe Maye and Blake will say anything to get Joe to pick him. But he won’t do anything, and Christina totally will. Just watch.
Christina turned almost immediately after Joe began singing “I Put A Spell On You,” the song by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins (most famous by Bette Midler); he has some intense rasp — much like hers. Toward the end, Blake decided to also spin around and even stand up and cheer.
“You are my man, Joe! You have got to be on my team,” Christina told Joe. Pharrell actually pointed out this wasn’t the first time he saw Joe — he remembered that last season he had auditioned with “Word Up” but the judges didn’t like the song choice. And now, he’s back!
“I am so happy I’m here this season, and I heard you with fresh ears,” Christina said before turning to Blake and asking why he didn’t turn for him last year. “When he auditioned last season, my team was full,” he made up, before admitting “I don’t remember!” He tried to win Joe over by pulling the “I’ve won before” card, but it definitely wasn’t going to work — and yes, Blake did say that Joe put a spell on him.
“That is one of my favorite songs in the whole wide world to sing, I would actually love to sing that with you someday,” Christina says before Pharrell makes it happen and gets her a mic! Let me just say their duet is so good that Blake even ends up standing up, clapping, and actually bowing down to them. Seriously, I got goosebumps ALL OVER MY BODY.
So, do you think he’ll chose X-Tina? C’mon now! The Voice airs every Monday and Tuesday at 8PM on NBC.
