Jordan Smith And Regina Love “Voice” Battle Video: “Like I Can” Leads To Season’s First Steal — WATCH HERE!
Jordan Smith and Regina Love kicked off “The Voice” battle round for season 9 on Tuesday with the season’s first steal. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop reported, Smith’s feminine-sounding voice shocked the judges in the best way possible during the blind auditions. Now coach Adam Levine asked Smith and Love to sing “Like I Can.” Noting Sam Smith’s powerful voice, he acknowledged his contestants would be challenged to “stand up to that same level.” Meanwhile, guest advisor John Fogerty was particularly impressed by how well Smith and Love meshed, saying, “The two of them together is magic.”
That proved to be the case when it came time to perform, and Pharrell stood up well before they were finished. The rest of the coaches joined in a standing ovation, and Blake Shelton even admitted afterward, “I feel like we’re at the Grammys right now or something. That was crazy.”
“Jordan, I don’t even know what the hell just came out of you,” continued Shelton. “It doesn’t make any sense to me. Your voice is like from another planet.” Gwen Stefani went on to tell Smith, “I don’t understand you. You’re just so unexpected. That’s what turns me on.” But she was just as blown away by Love, telling the pair, “It is just shocking to me the ability that you both have.”
Pharrell deemed the performance “masterful,” and gave an interesting analogy. “To be honest, it felt like the jousting of ‘Game of Thrones’ or something,” said the singer-producer. Levine, however, pointed out that “the best thing about it is that you were both able to be these incredible singers without stepping on each other’s toes.”
As the clock ticked down for Levine to choose a winner, he exclaimed, “Man, this sucks! I’m just trying to talk my way out of this… I think you both deserve to be in this competition and I’m starting to feel dumb for putting you both together.”
Ultimately, he picked Smith! And then Stefani stole Love! Happy endings all around! Gossip Cop will have video soon. Check back shortly!
