‘The Voice’ blind auditions: Anthony Alexander (‘Redbone’) reminds coaches of Michael Jackson and Prince [WATCH]

During Night 4 of “The Voice” Season 13, Anthony Alexander‘s impressive range reminded the coaches of infamous artists like Michael Jackson and Prince. While Blake Shelton didn’t end up turning his chair around, the other three coaches — Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson — all fought to have Alexander on their teams after his performance of “Redbone.” Who prevailed in the end? Watch Anthony Alexander’s “The Voice” blind audition video above.

Among the bullet points from the coaches’ deliberations, Hudson was “extremely passionate” about having Alexander on her team, Cyrus told him that she has the “fire” in her to win this season, and Levine remarked that he could help improve his falsetto. But it was Levine’s pleas that sold the young singer into joining his team.

“The diversity of your voice is very special,” Levine admitted to Alexander. “The way you sing is so honest and very sincere. And I’m like, this dude almost quietly is going to win this show. There’s some stuff though that I know you can be better at. I just know I can get your falsetto to a 15 out of 10, because to me that is how a male vocalist gets to the pinnacle of their talent.”
