Central Florida resident Christian Cuevas, who you heard on air with The Morning MIX several weeks back, absolutely slayed Adele’s “Hello” last night when he took the stage with fellow contestant Jason Warrior in the first night of the Battle Rounds. Coach Alicia Keys whole-heartedly approved, with a standing ovation, screams, and plenty of banging on her red-chaired podium.
“I just hurt my hand because I banged on this so hard and I jumped up and down because I was so taken by both of you. I was really proud of you Christian. You really accessed a real place. You were brave enough to let us into your world, your mind, your heart,” Keys said, before delivering the verdict as to which contestant would move on with Team Alicia on The Voice.
“I’m really taken by you both,” she said as she announced her difficult decision, “and the winner of this battle…is Christian.”
“The belief Alicia has in me to win this battle is overwhelming,” Cuevas exclaimed after giving his family some love. “Knockouts? I’m coming for you!”
Christian will move on to represent Team Alicia in the Knockouts while Adam Levine stole Warrior, saving him from an exit and bringing him on to Team Adam.
