One of this season’s frontrunners on “The Voice” to possibly take the championship is country crooner Adam Wakefield. What did you think of his performance on Monday of the song “Lights” (watch above)? Give your letter grade A-F in our new poll below.
Wakefield is from New Hampshire and has country superstar Blake Shelton as his coach. Out of the nine previous seasons of the NBC reality hit show, Shelton has mentored the winning artist a record four times.
His song choices so far this season have been “Tennessee Whiskey” by David Allan Coe (blind audition), “Can’t You See” by Marshall Tucker Band (battle round), “Bring It on Home to Me” by Sam Cooke (knockout round), “Seven Spanish Angels” by Willie Nelson and Ray Charles (live round one), “Soulshine” by Allman Brothers Band (top 12), and “Lights” by Journey (top 11).
Gold Derby contributing writer John Benutty wrote of his performance on Monday: “When Shelton prefaces a performance with ‘after this you’re going to worship him,’ you kind of expect it to blow you away, right? Wakefield sounded good, but the arrangement was so drowsy. There was nothing exciting about the song, but I guess there’s redemption in the fact that he did something a little bit different this week.”
And now it’s your chance to grade Wakefield. Give him an A, B, C, D or F for Monday’s performance.
