Nick proclaimed that Micah has been “so fun” throughout this season of “The Voice” and called him “one to watch” after his original performance. Kelly admitted there was some strategy to Micah singing “Butterflies” because it showed off his songwriting abilities, and “you want to kind of put your best foot forward.” The wine-sipping coach concluded, “You are so intensely creative and cool. I love working with you … I’m so proud of you. I hope you win!”
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the finale performance: “The first original song we heard tonight was ‘Butterflies’ from Micah Iverson, written by Shane McAnally. Shane told Micah that he has the ‘most pop perfect voice’ and that he’s immediately radio-friendly. Indeed the song and Micah’s performance of it is something that fits really well into a contemporary pop scene inhabited by artists like Harry Styles and Troye Sivan. My only concern with Micah is that he lacks any kind of edge, both visually and in his voice. He spent most of the song on one very safe level and so by the time he’s ready to break out with something bigger it’s too late, we’ve already checked out.”
