Monday night on “The Voice,” Wilkes and Dylan Hartigan represented Team Blake Shelton during the third and final knockout round episode of Season 14. Wilkes sang Miley Cyrus‘ “The Climb,” while Dylan took on Ray LaMontagne‘s “You Are the Best Thing.” After both artists performed Blake chose to advance Wilkes to the next round. However, rival coach Kelly Clarkson couldn’t bear to see Dylan go home so she stole him for her team. Do YOU think coach Blake made the right decision? Watch “The Voice” performance video above.
“I thought you both did everything you could do,” Blake told his artists. “We’re not completely sure that Wilkes is conscious in between songs. He’s literally just asleep. Maybe that’s how he can sing those notes, because he exudes absolutely no energy whatsoever outside of music throughout the day. He just saves it all for that moment and he blows the roof off. The winner of this knockout is Wilkes.”
As everyone celebrated Wilkes’ victory, Kelly slammed her “steal” button for Dylan. Just last week the roles were reversed and Blake stole Dylan from Kelly’s team, and now Kelly has stolen him right back. “I couldn’t let you go home,” she explained. “My team is turning out to be a fellas club!”
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger John Benutty declared, “With an unexpected song choice at his feet, Wilkes gives a daring performance and (almost) hits every note required of him with it, but compared to Dylan’s show he’s much quieter on stage. I don’t think the two artists could be more different!”
