Thunderstorm was an early favorite to win “The Voice” as a four-chair turn on Team Legend, but he was shockingly cut in the knockouts, which is when Nick swooped in for the steal. Blake commented on the “cool, different and inventive” way Thunderstorm strummed his guitar during his latest performance. Nick joked that the song was so good his “little puppy ran in to dance” with him, adding he has a “clear shot to the finale.”
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper Denton Davidson had this to say about the performance: “Team Nick is finally getting started with newlywed Thunderstorm Artis. He’ll be singing ‘Home’ in honor of his wife, Faith. I always cringe when artists sing this song about wanting to go home while they’re in a competition, but it is a beautiful choice — and I guess he’s already at home, so no harm no foul. Thunderstorm has such a great tone and this is incredibly heartfelt, but I might advise a bit more power at this stage of the competition. That said, I can’t imagine him not making the finale.”
