He also liked Joei Fulco, who hit an impressive country-rock rendition of Linda Ronstadt's "When Will I Be Loved."
“You both just gave perfect performance,” Legend said afterwards. “You did exactly what you’re supposed to do. You sang the notes with power and precision.” He struggled to pick a winner, though he admitted there’s “something about Levi.”
Nick Jonas had fun with the routines, and noted Levi’s choice came from leftfield. “A 14-year-old singing Waylon Jennings? That just happened,” Clarkson remarked. And everyone took turns poking fun at their coach.
Jonas went with Joei. Clarkson went with Levi.
Shelton struggled to choose a winner from these two, very capable artists. “I hate this show right now,” he remarked, as he selected Joei to stay in the competition.
