Ever since Ian Flanigan first walked onto the stage on 'The Voice', Blake Shelton couldn't stop raving about his incredible vocals. Ian's gravelly and raspy voice was an instant hit with not just Blake but also fans of the show. In an earlier epiose, Blake even made a remark about how Ian's voice is so unique that he can't think of any other musician on the planet who has same voice as him. 

Ian continued to charm the coaches and fans even during the ongoing top 17 performances round. He chose Bob Dylan's 'make you feel my love' to perform for the top 17 round. At the end of his performance, Blake once again showered him with praise, and got off his chair to look straight into the cameras and request America to vote for Ian and his unique vocals. While Kelly Clarkson and Gwen Stefani admitted that his voice was beautiful and nothing like anything they ever heard before. John Legend too jumped onto the bandwagon and appreciated Ian's performance.

Several fans took to their Twitter to declare Ian as their favorite contestant this season. A fan tweeted, "@blakeshelton you found a four leaf clover in a field of clovers with Ian. He has a voice I’ve never heard before.... my favorite this season. #TeamBlake #TheVoice." Another fan wrote, "Ok so um I gotta say Ian is my fave on #TeamBlake #thevoice." "My fave from the first time I heard you sing on this show. Youre 10000000% amazing, Ian!!!!!!," commented a fan.




"[email protected] #VoiceTop17 Ian sounds like Kenny Rogers. Close your eyes and listen to this performance again. It would be awesome to hear him sing the baseball song of Kenny’s. It’s all American. I think he would still a lot of hearts and votes with that one," praised a fan. Another fan expressed, "[email protected] #VoiceTop17 You have incredible talent on your team. Love Ian.... Very unique voice!." Hopefully Blake's request and Ian's talent gets him enough votes to cruise through top 9 performers round.



'The Voice' Season 19 airs every Monday and Tuesday at 8/7c on NBC.
