Night 2 of the playoffs aired Tuesday night on “The Voice” Season 13, with recently stolen artist Adam Cunningham performing Joe Cocker‘s “Have a Little Faith in Me” for Team Adam Levine. The performance impressed Levine so much that he advanced Cunningham to the live shows on NBC’s reality TV program, along with Jon Mero and Addison Agen. Watch Cunningham’s winning performance from “The Voice” playoffs above.
Our writer John Benutty live-blogged the episode, and as he noted, “It’s interesting that Blake Shelton is scared that he let Cunningham go, allowing Adam to steal him and now potentially beat him, as he’s always wanted to, with a country artist. What’s funny to me about that is I think Blake also picked up a potential winner with a steal when he got Chloe Kohanski from Miley Cyrus.”
Back in his blind audition, Cunningham performed “Midnight Rider” and had two coaches turn their chairs around: Shelton and Jennifer Hudson. The next time we saw Cunningham in the battle rounds, he and Natalie Stovall sang “Boondocks” and Cunningham was declared the winner by his coach Shelton. In the knockouts Cunningham was paired up against Esera Tuaolo, with Tuaolo proving victorious, at which point Cunningham was stolen by Levine.
Cunningham is 38 years old and currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee. Here’s the official NBC bio: “Adam, a session singer in Nashville, grew up singing at churches with his mom and dad before releasing a few Christian albums as a young adult. Things were starting to look good until 2011 when his career went on the fritz as he and his first wife divorced. Adam put music on hold until 2013 when he met his current wife, Courtney. She brought light into Adam’s life and he started writing songs again. A year ago, Adam and Courtney welcomed a baby girl into their family. Now, more than ever, Adam wants to make a successful career singing his music.”
