Tuesday night on “The Voice,” Austin Giorgio represented Team Blake Shelton during the second live playoff episode of Season 14. Austin slowed things down with Justin Bieber‘s “Love Yourself” and will find out if he advances to the Top 12 on Wednesday, April 18. Four of Austin’s teammates (Spensha Baker, Pryor Baird, Gary Edwards and Wilkes) also performed, while Kyla Jade sailed through to the finals thanks to America’s vote during Monday’s episode. Do YOU think Austin’s performance was good enough to make it to the next round? Watch “The Voice” video above.
“Austin, first of all, I love that new camo that you have on, whatever pattern that is,” Blake said about his suave gray-and-black suit. “I gotta say man, you also have earned your place moving forward on this show. There’s nobody else, not only on this show, but really out there carrying the torch for what you’re doing musically.”
Blake continued on, “You’re not like anybody else out there and that’s super exciting for me as a coach and for me as a fan of this show and somebody who loves this show to have you on it. You’re a gift to us man and I hope people vote for you.” Find out if Austin makes it into the Top 12 when the results are revealed Wednesday night on NBC.
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger Denton Davidson said, “Austin shows restraint by staying seated on a stool until midway through the song. I love the idea of him putting his spin on contemporary music, but I don’t think this is going as well as he’d hoped. He seems to struggle when attempting little runs and the lyrics were oddly difficult to understand. That being said, the charisma of this kid is off the charts. I’d also add his wardrobe is sick!”
