Mari vs Anthony Ortiz Sing
Mari likes being bold with her hair and makeup. She grew up in a musical family, her parents are worship leaders. Anthony says it’s a dream to work with Charlie Puth. He grew up in a skateboarding family and working in a bakery. They were both one chair turns for Team Adam. Anthony says Mari is tough competition. Charlie says Mari reminds him of Esperanza, a jazz singer and Anthony reminds him of himself at that age. The song is in a male key so Mari will have to work a little bit harder. The stage rehearsal goes well, Anthony is wearing a weird red hat. Mari is ready to go.
Anthony starts off, he has such an airy voice. Mari’s voice is more powerful. Anthony is wearing one suspender and the red beanie hat. Mari has on a sparkly jumpsuit. Mari’s a little hard to understand in a few places, but I’m not a fan of Anthony’s style of voice. Don’t really care who wins this one. This is okay, but nothing special. Tonight a little disappointing so far. I’m still waiting for the energy in this song. Meh. Blake says it was a fun performance. Anthony sings like he’s whispering, and Mari has fun stage presence. Kelly tells them vocally it was great, Mari killed it. John said Mari took ownership of the song gave her energy and funk. Adam liked their chemistry and energy. Felt the nerves got Anthony, but he finished strong. Mari was amazing, they did a great job. The winner of this battle is….. Mari! (Not surprising based on coaches comments). Adam says Mari is just a little superstar who comes out of nowhere. Anthony appreciates the platform and the advice. Anthony Ortiz is eliminated.
