Singer Jon Mero has found the perfect coach in Adam Levine. He benefits from yet another four-chair turn for Season 13 of “The Voice” from Adam as well as rivals Jennifer Hudson, Blake Shelton, and Miley Cyrus. Watch the video above as he performs the hot Bruno Mars tune “Versace on the Floor” and gives it his own unique spin for Night 5 of the blind auditions on Monday.
NBC’s Emmy-winning “The Voice” premiered Monday, September 25, with the first blind auditions of this season. We offered fun, exciting live blogs for that episode plus a second night on that Tuesday, a third installment on Monday, October 2, a fourth night on Tuesday, October 3, and this week’s fifth night on Monday, October 9.
For this performance (watch above) of the two-hour episode, our contributing writer John Benutty said in his power rankings item: “Even though Miley was after an all-female team, I wasn’t surprised to see her make Jon’s audition a four chair turn because his stage presence and vocal prowess were evident from the start of his performance through to the end. He’s definitely one of the most energetic performers we’ve seen this season, but gives off the vibe of a seasoned performer primed and ready to jump into the business immediately. He could go all the way, especially with Adam as his coach.”
According to his NBC bio about the 31-year-old from Iowa: “As a kid, Jon grew up playing the piano and trumpet. At 14, he saw Whitney Houston sing in the movie “The Preacher’s Wife” and decided that singing is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. At 25, Jon moved from Des Moines to Atlanta in hopes of finding more musical opportunities. When Jon arrived in Atlanta, he got the chance to perform with CeeLo Green, which furthered his motivation and passion. Currently, Jon works as a corporate singer in the Celebrity All-Star Band. He gigs with the band at parties and corporate events, which has helped him develop his singing and performing skills. He finally feels ready to take the stage by himself and is hoping The Voice will catapult his solo career.”
