Christian Cuevas, Belle Jewel “The Voice” Video: Watch Knockout Round Steal!
Christian Cuevas and Belle Jewel competed in “The Voice” Knockouts on Tuesday, during which one of them was stolen. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop reported, Cuevas impressed during the Blind Auditions with his emotional performance of Michael Bolton’s “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You.” After joining Team Alicia, coach Alicia Keys paired Cuevas with Jason Warrior for the Battles, where they sang Adele’s “Hello.” Cuevas won the face-off, although Warrior was stolen by Adam Levine.
Warrior’s own Knockout aired on Monday’s show, and he was again stolen, this time by Blake Shelton. Now it was time for Cuevas to return to the stage. He chose to sing Luther Vandross’ version of “Superstar,” and was told by key advisers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill to work on his performance style. Keys added, “Because I think you’re so great, you have a lot of work to do on this song.”
In comparison, Jewel has flown under the radar so far this season. She was relegated to montages during the first two rounds, so now this third stage of the competition was the first time viewers could really see her shine. She picked “Don’t Dream It’s Over” by Crowded House for her performance, and all agreed that she was “definitely an artist.”
By the time Cuevas took the stage, he had done his homework and pulled off an incredible performance, and Jewel’s own turn was quite beautiful. “I got nervous for Alicia during this round,” Miley Cyrus admitted afterward, saying how much she was “loves” Jewel and was “falling madly, deeply in love” with Cuevas. Levine told him, “I’m obsessed with your voice,” and said to Jewel, “You’ve made fans out of all of us.”
Shelton even told Alicia he was “mad” at her for pitting these two artists against each other. Keys, too, felt both “completely delivered.” Cyrus was particularly antsy as Keys deliberated, even confessing she was “scared.” Ultimately, though, Keys chose Cuevas as the winner.
And Cyrus then went to steal Jewel as soon as host Carson Daly said she was eligible. “That may’ve been the fastest steal in Knockout history,” he exclaimed! Check out both videos below!
