Colton Smith Lady Marmalade
The Voice season 15 Knockouts continue tonight with coaches Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Blake Shelton and Carson Daly as host. We’re live blogging all the performances and results here.
Coaches have paired up the remaining 32 team members who will each perform songs of their own choosing. The coach chooses the winner, who advances to the Live Playoffs. The loser is eliminated OR can be stolen by a fellow coach. As far as the other coaches are concerned: Adam has used his Steal and his Save, Kelly and Blake have a Save remaining, and Jennifer still has a Steal. There are 12 more performances to go. Nine of those singers will advance to next week’s Playoffs.
Colton Smith vs Kirk Jay – Team Blake – Blake stole Colton from Jennifer. “It’s going to be a tough decision for me,” Blake says. The two freak out when they see Mariah.
Colton Smith – Lady Marmalade by LaBelle – He’s been living with hearing loss since he was a kid. “Lady Marmalade is his mom’s favorite song. But it’s a big song! “Ambitious,” says Mariah. Blake says Colton will need to fill the stage up with “excitement.” During the performance, he plays to the judges.But he seems to run out of steam by the end. He’s distracted, having to pull his inears out during the performance. He seems a little lost. We joined the performance midway–I suspect the REALLY bad parts were edited out. Poor guy.
