‘The Voice’ Knockouts: Esera Tuaolo Pits Against Adam Cunningham [Watch]
Tonight (Oct. 30) The Voice‘s Season 13 Knockouts begin. Just like the week before, team members are pitted against each other — however, in this round, each singer is allowed to perform a solo of their own choosing. One member wins, the other loses…and each coach is allowed one steal, should they choose to use it.
Kelly Clarkson — who is famously tied to another reality show, American Idol — will be on hand to help the teams, which are headed by coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus. Clarkson herself will be a coach when The Voice returns for Season 14 in the spring.
Country fans have their eyes, of course, on Team Blake. This evening, team members Esera Tuaolo and Adam Cunningham went head-to-head, with Tuaolo choosing the well-covered “Superstar” by Leon Russell and Cunningham opting for “Either Way” by Chris Stapleton.
Tuaolo’s rendition showed off his soaring range and enormous vocal power, while Cunningham’s mellow delivery built more slowly and was perfect for his song choice.
In the end, it was a tough choice for Shelton, who decided to go with Tualolo. However, Levine saved Cunningham’s day by using his one steal to take the singer over to his side.
The Voice Season 13 will continue to air on Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
