Sawyer Fredericks “Trouble” The Voice Video: 16-Year-Old Shows Why He’s A “Star” On Live Playoffs — WATCH!
Sawyer Fredericks was one of the 10 artists to kick off “The Voice” season 8 live playoffs on Monday, and he stood out from the pack with a powerful performance of “Trouble.” Watch below!
The 16-year-old has been a frontrunner since his very first audition, and made it to the Top 20 after having standout performances during the Battle and Knockout rounds. Now, as one of the Pharrell team members, along with Team Blake Shelton singers, to perform on Monday, Fredericks once again proved that he has remarkable talent for his age.
In fact, the teen, who was the last take the stage, left Adam Levine stunned by how his “man voice” handled such an adult song. “It’s so crazy how your soul is way older than you are,” said the Maroon 5 frontman, adding, “I’m just a huge fan of yours, and I really enjoy watching you perform.” Blake Shelton even admitted, “It’s hard to watch Sawyer and not think that the other coaches here are screwed.” He went on to tell Fredericks, “Just keep doing what you do week in and week out up there, and I don’t care what happens on this show, you’re a star.”
And Fredericks’ coach Pharrell was, of course, proud, and shared, “I consider you to be like a super-rare natural. I’m really convinced that America and all those young ladies out there that listen to you sing, they will completely understand.” This not only marked Fredericks’ first live performance on the show, but also the first time he performed in hopes of earning viewers’ votes. It was no surprise that he was the last to take the stage. Check out the video below!
