'The Voice' always has its fair share of intriguing and hilarious moments, and Season 22 seems to have plenty. As Kique belted out his version of 'Beautiful Girls' by Sean Kingston, plenty of hilarity ensued as judges Blake Shelton and Gwen both turned for the artist.

Who is Robert 'Kique' Gomez?

Robert 'Kique' Gomez is a Cuban singer from Miami. He loves reptiles and has owned everything from Lizards to turtles. Kique also has an intense love for music and labels himself bisexual. He went to an all-catholic boys' school. On 'The Voice' Season 22, Kique auditioned with Sean Kingston's 'Beautiful Girls' but added his own twist to the song. Kique's audition earned him two chair turns from couple Gwen and Blake, who both fought hard for him. While Camila was ecstatic to learn the singer was from Miami, she regretted not turning for him. John praised the singer's soulful and interesting version of the song. The two went on to vouch for fellow judge Gwen as Kique's best coach, much to Blake's exasperation.

A fan wrote, "Wow new version for me good job for soul full voice..” One said, “Never heard a Sean Kingston song sung this great." Another wrote, "such a sweet and rich vocal. Nice clean high and also some full lower notes. Some pretty good melody changes." And one loved him so much to write, "Those melodic choices are fire. His musicality shines through in this performance. One of my favorite auditions this season"
