On the first live results show on season 13 of “The Voice,” the bottom two vote getters among the Top 12 artists were both from Team Adam Levine: Adam Cunningham and Jon Mero. Each had to sing one more song to try and win votes cast by viewers via Twitter.
Cunningham was up first and tackled the 1969 rock song “Fortunate Son,” which was a big hit for a Creedence Clearwater Revival as the first single from their fourth studio album, “Willy and the Poor Boys.” Rolling Stone has it at #99 on its “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” list. Cunningham connected with the lyrics and the viewers and won the Instant Save.
Mero did himself proud with his rendition of The Jackson 5‘s debut single “I Want You Back,” which rose to number one and came from their 1969 album “Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5.” “I Want You Back” was ranked 121st on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
Those watching the show live in the Eastern and Central time zones knew when to vote via Twitter. Fans of either artist in the rest of the country had to rely on social media if they wanted to weigh in with their pick, albeit without having seen the performances.
