‘The Voice’ Season 4, Episode 12 Recap: Vedo and C. Perkins Sing Off for Sole R&B Slot On Usher’s Team
While Shakira and Adam Levine’s teams brought their fire on Monday (April 29), the second night of the Knockout Round brought out Blake Sheldon’s mission to form his country super group and Usher’s quest for his own epic team but also find the right R&B singer for him to mentor throughout the fourth season.
Atlanta crooner Vedo and New Orleans singer C. Perkins were put up to that challenge when they were set to face each other in the vocal ring. Perkins, who Usher saved in the Battle rounds during one of the most dramatic moments of the competition so far, started things off with ‘She Ain’t You’ by one of his musical inspirations, Chris Brown. Although he was having issues with a falsetto during rehearsals, Perkins pulled off a strong and interactive performance that got the fans excited.
Meanwhile Vedo wanted to do something a bit more emotional. After recently losing his mother during the competition, he paid tribute to her with the 1991 Bryan Adams classic hit, ‘Everything I Do (I Do It For You).’ Even though he managed to attack every note with precision and grace, it was the emotion that he put into every lyric in the song that really stole the show and inspired Usher to ultimately pick him as the winner of the round.
How far do you think he’ll go in the competition? You’ll just have to tune in next week to ‘The Voice’ on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 8 p.m. on NBC.
