Jeffery Austin closed Monday’s “The Voice” with a stripped-down version of “Dancing On My Own.” Check out the video below!
Austin is Team Gwen’s most promising contestant. Last week, his take on James Bay’s “Let It Go” soared on the iTunes charts. Now the Top 11 contestant sought to replicate that success with a powerful new take on “Dancing On My Own” by Robyn.
Adam Levine told Austin afterward, “There’s just something about your voice. You can’t teach the kind of unique quality you have, and that’s the kind of quality that can be heard by millions of people all over the world.”
Blake Shelton said he had a number of thoughts while watching the aspiring star perform, and one of them was, “Jeffery could win. He could win ‘The Voice’ this season.” He also noted that new girlfriend Gwen Stefani would then be the first female coach to win the NBC music competition.
Stefani was actually crying from the performance, and told her artist, “I’m blown away. I don’t understand how talented you are. You are so gifted. You moved to me tears. I am so grateful to know you and be part of this.”
Watch the performance below. Were you tearful like Stefani?
