The second night of the knockout episodes on “The Voice” only had three match-ups and one of them was a clear favorite with the coaches and viewers. That was the last sing-off, which pitted two of the artists on Team Alicia Keys — Terrence Cunningham and Christiana Danielle — against each other. When their coach couldn’t decide between them, both of them secured a place in the Top 24.
Cunningham had won Keys over with his cover of “Tell Me Something Good,” a 1974 Stevie Wonder song that was a big hit for Rufus and Chaka Khan. “I would be up there struggling,” the coach admitted about watching her artist hit all the high notes. Watch Cunningham in action in the video above and then let us know your thoughts on his performance, as well as those of the other five artists, in the comment section below.
Danielle had done herself proud with her rendition of Sia‘s 2015 chart-topping “Elastic Heart” but was left hanging until her coach decided if she wanted to use her one and only save. Keys noted, “there’s this wonderful booming beast in both of you that everybody is witnessing right now. You both are magnificent. I am so excited to help cultivate artists on this show, like real, genuine, bonafide, beautiful, artistic beings.” And with that she hit her save button just as Adam Levine had done for Drew Cole on the first night of the knockout round, as had Blake Shelton with Austin Giorgio.
In his recap our live-blogger Denton Davidson declared, “Terrence takes his seat behind the piano and I just know this guy is going to kill it! The ease with which the notes just come out of him is hypnotizing. At one point he hit a high note and Kelly just jumped out of her chair. This man is like watching Stevie Wonder in his prime. Terrence is simply on a whole other level in this competition and could easily become Alicia’s second straight champion.”
