It certainly didn’t take long for Davon Fleming to cement his status on Season 13 of “The Voice.” Coaches Adam Levine, Jennifer Hudson, and Miley Cyrus turned around almost immediately after he began performing the pop song “Me and Mrs. Jones” by Amy Winehouse. Blake Shelton was a little further behind in his chair turn for Night 3 of the currently-airing blind auditions. Davon ultimately chose to join Team Jennifer, and might well be on his way to a long run this year.
NBC’s Emmy-winning “The Voice” premiered Monday, September 25, with the first blind auditions of this season and continued for a second night on that Tuesday. This third installment on Monday, October 2, was live blogged with instant analysis on Gold Derby.
For this performance (watch above) of the two-hour episode, our contributing writer John Benutty said in his live blog: “One line into ‘Me & Mr. Jones’ and Davon has 1-2-3 turns. Then a late fourth from Blake, making Davon the first four-chair turn of the night. Not to mention, he’s the first tonight to make Jennifer throw her shoe at him. Davon with tears in his eyes, Jennifer saying she’s never seen the panel this speechless, and Blake declaring that Davon will be in the finale. Once the topic of Davon’s love for Whitney Houston came up, the other judges kind of gave up, letting Jennifer, literally, take the stage from them to perform ‘I Will Always Love You’ with Davon. Try as they might, the other judges were no match for Jennifer on this one and Davon rightfully chose to move forward with her.”
According to his NBC bio about the 25-year-old from Maryland: “Davon grew up in a rough neighborhood, experienced a lot of poverty and witnessed hustling on the streets, but he was never caught on the wrong side of the law. Instead, he was known as the singer in his neighborhood. Davon knew he wanted to sing at three years old after watching his mother perform in the church choir. Being a singer was always his mom’s dream before she had kids, but she had to give up that dream in order to support her family. Currently, Davon works as a worship leader and assists with the musical arrangements for the church choir performances.”
