Reagan Strange ‘dazzled’ Adam Levine in ‘The Voice’ knockouts, but what about Radha’s Mariah Carey cover? [WATCH]

During Monday’s episode of “The Voice,” Adam Levine paired up Reagan Strange and Radha in the fourth knockout round of Season 15. Reagan blew the roof off of Calum Scott‘s “Dancing on My Own” while Radha boldly sang Mariah Carey‘s “I’ll Be There” … in front of Mariah herself. Because Adam was impressed by both young artists, he chose to advance Reagan to the next round and he also used his one and only save to keep Radha in the competition. Watch Reagan’s “The Voice” video above and read the coaches’ comments below.

“Radha, you’re like this powerhouse,” Adam said when it was time to make his decision. “You’re singing Mariah Carey songs in front of Mariah Carey. That’s crazy. And then Reagan came out and the fact that you chose this song was kind of gutsy but it made you stand out even more. I mean, this is a tough choice. I’m gonna go with the person who just kind of dazzled me in a way that is hard to explain. The winner of this knockout is Reagan.”

As Reagan celebrated, host Carson Daly reminded all four “Voice” coaches that Radha was available to save. Before Radha could even say a single word, Adam slammed his hand down on his “Save” button to keep her on her team. “Radha is a great, powerful singer,” Adam explained, “and to have that be a jumping-off point for the lives is pretty damn cool.”

In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the knockout: “In Radha’s performance she managed to switch between her chest and head voice as the song requires, but overall it came off a tad bit lifeless when compared to Reagan’s performance. Reagan took the pop dance song and slowed it down to something much more vulnerable that matched her own youthfulness.”
