Monday night on “The Voice,” country/pop singer Jackie Verna represented Team Adam Levine during the live Top 12 episode of Season 14. With Adam’s help, Jackie chose to perform Avril Lavigne‘s “I’m With You” because it’s a song she loved when she was younger and it helped her escape into music. Do YOU think that Jackie will advance to the next round on NBC’s reality TV singing competition? Watch “The Voice” performance video above.
“In a weird way I was kind of forced to make this crazy decision last week,” Adam told Jackie about when he saved her during the live playoffs. “I don’t even remember last week, by the way, because it was so crazy. I felt like I just had to make this quick decision and I chose you because the explosiveness in your growth over the time that I’ve spent with you has been so amazing and your poise through it all has been so amazing.”
Adam added, “That’s a hard song to reproduce live. It is so astonishing, you guys, how hard that was and how she rose to that challenge. You are amazing and everybody in this country should vote for you tonight.” Jackie, Rayshun LaMarr and Sharane Calister are the last three artists remaining on Team Adam.
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger John Benutty wrote, “To be honest, Jackie sounded really good in the verses, but when the big chorus hit she got pitchy and ultimately sounded like she was screaming rather than singing. I think she does have a good voice, but she might have bit off more than she could chew this week with such an ambitious song choice.”
