Sundance Head, Josh Gallagher ‘The Voice’ Video: Watch Knockout Round Steal!
Sundance Head and Josh Gallagher kicked off “The Voice” season 11 Knockouts on Monday, leading to a steal. Check out the video below!
Both artists started off the third round of competition Blake Shelton’s team. But unlike the Battles, in which two contestants face off in a duet, the Knockouts require the aspiring stars to sing separately, one after the other. Once again, the coach can only name one winner, thereby eliminating the other person from his or her team.
For Head, a former “American Idol” contestant, he made the surprising choice to sing “The Climb” by first-time coach Miley Cyrus. During rehearsals with key advisers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, McGraw defended Head’s surprising song choice, calling it a great country song for a male, while Shelton deemed it “risky” and a “shock.” Gallagher, meanwhile, picked Brooks & Dunn’s “My Maria.” At his rehearsal, Hill warned him to be careful with his falsetto notes.
But when it came time for their respective performances, both Gallagher and Head ended up nailing it. “That was fantastic,” Alicia Keys said afterward. Cyrus thanked Head for singing her song, praising him for changing some of the notes and giving it “so much youness.” Adam Levine noted he’s “grown to become a huge fan” of Gallagher, saying he could go far “beyond” this show.
Of course, that made Shelton’s job harder since, as noted above, he could only keep one of the guys on his team. He ultimately deemed Head the victor… and Gallagher was stolen by Levine! Watch below!
