Monday night on “The Voice,” Britton Buchanan represented Team Alicia Keys during the live Top 24 episode of Season 14. Britton rocked out to Grand Funk Railroad‘s “Some Kind of Wonderful” with the help of his trusty guitar, and was immediately voted through to the Top 12 based on America’s live results. Britton’s fellow teammates (Johnny Bliss, Kelsea Johnson, Terrence Cunningham, Jackie Foster and Christiana Danielle) will get another shot to advance to the finals when they perform on Tuesday’s live episode.

“This crew, this gang, this team is so spectacular,” declared Alicia after all six of them gave it their all. “I think you are so special. I mean, just look at you all. Not only are you extremely talented but you’re all very beautiful, like gorgeous. And it comes from inside. We were talking earlier and you are all individual artists. You are true definition of artist. Not one is like the other. You each have your unique own way of expressing your passion and tonight you did that in a way that was so authentic and so genuine and so powerful.”
Alicia added, “I hope you all know that you are incredible and this is more than this moment. This is everything that this leads to next for all of you.” After Britton was named the winner of America’s vote, Alicia jumped to her feet to cheer him on. Britton hugged Johnny before rushing over to celebrate with his team leader Alicia.
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger John Benutty summarized, “Britton is really young, but performs well beyond his years. Tonight is no different from the high level of performance we’ve come to expect from him. I like him with the guitar and with the edge he has on display here. I honestly don’t even know what is going to happen with Team Alicia anymore. They had four extraordinary performances!”
