During Monday’s live episode of “The Voice” Season 15, Hawaiian singer Tyke James of Team Adam Levine performed “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” for America’s votes. This week’s theme was “Dedications,” so Tyke announced that he was dedicating his performance to his mother. Do you think Tyke will advance to next week’s Top 11?

“That was such a great idea,” Kelly Clarkson said about Adam’s idea to have Tyke play the song on his ukulele. “You know why? He was inspired by you. From the beginning, you stand apart — not because of just the Hawaiian thing, just that’s your artistic kind of vibe that everyone’s attracted to. This is my favorite thing you’ve done. And I love that our hair is the same.”
Adam was “so proud” of Tyke, telling him, “It’s one thing to make a song your own. We say that a lot and most of the time it’s true. This version of the song has never been attempted. It’s such a huge, over-the-top song and you took it and stripped it down. A great song, a truly amazing song done by an amazing artist like yourself, that’s all you need. It was beautiful and it was in its purest form and it’s never been shown like that before. You have your own thing, dude, and you have your own lane. Everyone go get this song on iTunes. I’m gonna get it ’cause I want it.”
Prior to this performance of “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You,” Tyke sang “Perfect” in the blind auditions, “She’s Always a Woman” in the battles, “Ring of Fire” in the knockouts and “Use Somebody” in the Top 26.
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper Denton Davidson had this to say about the live performance: “Tyke James from Team Adam is up next, dedicating ‘Everything I Do’ by Bryan Adams to his mother. At rehearsals, Adam suggests Tyke be accompanied by a ukulele rather than sing the traditional version. I think it was smart to change up this song. Tyke looks dreamy as ever with his hair up in a man bun as he serenades the screaming teenage girls in the audience. His voice isn’t the strongest in the competition, but I think he has enough charisma to sail through this round. Overall it was a solid performance.”
