'The Voice' Season 18: Allegra Miles leaves Nick Jonas entranced, wins the knockout against Jacob Miller
Allegra Miles did a completely different version of Sia's song 'Chandelier' and wowed all the coaches
The fourth pairing for the night was from Team Nick Jonas. 17-year-old Allegra Miles went head to head with 29-year-old Jacob Miller on the Knockout stage. Allegra had chosen Sia's hit 'Chandelier' while Jacob had chosen 'Better Now' by Post Malone. During rehearsals, Nick noted that Allegra's connection to the song was amazing while special coach James Taylor loved how she approached the song in a completely different way.
Nick was heard saying after rehearsals that it gets really difficult for him to choose winners as he spends a lot of time with his contestants, trying to know them on a personal level because that is what helps him to help them grow as artists.
When Allegra got up on that stage, she successfully owned the stage. Her personal touch on the song coupled with those beautiful runs she did during her performance left all the coaches spellbound and their expressions were proof of the same. Nick and Kelly Clarkson gave her a standing ovation after her performance.
Jacob also delivered an amazing performance. He was strumming his guitar while doing so and that added another layer to his performance. At one point during his performance coach Kelly went wow.
After the performances, Kelly mentioned that both singers did a fantastic job. She complimented Jacob and particularly mentioned that he has a very cool tone. She loved Allegra's song choice and mentioned that the singer left her hanging on to every word. Blake Shelton commended Jacobs's guitar skills and voice control but mentioned that Allegra is coach Nick's chance to win the show. However, John Legend mentioned Jacob needed to add a little bit more charm to his performance.
When it was Nick's time to choose the winner, he picked Allegra and mentioned that she left him entranced. He also noted that she has the ability to silence people with her performances and she is a definite name to keep for the finale. “Jacob, you’ve really come out of your shell, you’re really fun, and funny to be around. You are an artist that I would love to work with,” he added.
'The Voice' airs Monday nights on NBC.
