'The Voice’ Playoffs: Sid Kingsley called an unbelievable artist by Blake Shelton, fans say ‘he needs to win’
The 37-year-old Virginia crooner opted for Leon Bridges’s popular number ‘Beyond’
Blake Shelton’s team in Season 19 of ‘The Voice’ currently stands strong with the mother-daughter trio Worth the Wait, Sid Kingsley, Jim Ranger, Ian Flanigan and Taryn Papa. After Worth the Wait, Ranger, Flanigan and Papa floored the judges with their magical performances in the season’s playoffs premiere, it was time for Kingsley to hit the stage.
The 37-year-old Virginia crooner opted for Leon Bridges’s popular number ‘Beyond’ hoping to mesmerize the audience. Bridges was also roped in as a mentor for Team Kelly who Kingsley was part of earlier. Kingsley, who had quite an interesting journey so far, got a thumbs up from all the judges. Speaking to Kingsley after his majestic performance, Blake rooted for him saying that he has no idea how he ended up on his team referring to “steal” and “saves” Kingsley experienced in the earlier episodes. The country legend added that Kingsley is an unbelievable and incredible artist.
The fan-favorite also got a lot of response on social media after his latest performance. Speaking on the same lines, one user asserted, “@blakeshelton Sid Kingsley and Ian are the BEST! I want to buy their albums...get them a record deal!” One stated, “@blakeshelton #VoiceTop17 Sid Kingsley is one of my favorite singers hope he’s one of the final 9 love is style of music and voice.” Another added, “Sid Kingsley needs to win The Voice. @SidKingsley” One viewer posted, “Sid Kingsley on the keys and always intense, softened a bit for this beginning but still present. I’m totally engaged in his style and sound, the way he sings out the side of his mouth. Great focused tone. He gets lost in the music and it’s soothing.”

Episode 11 of the Season 19 of ‘The Voice’ kept the fans hooked last week with a lot of drama happening on the stage. Before the playoffs began, the last week votes from the 4-way knockout were announced by show’s host Carson Daly. Taryn Papa from Blake Shelton’s team was crowned as the winner from the 4-way knockout. During the episode, we also got to know Ryan Gallagher had to pull out. The reason for the same was not revealed but he will no longer be part of the competition.
Fans can catch the singing reality show on the official website of NBC and on their official app along with the network's new streaming service Peacock. Also, we will see Nick Jonas returning as a judge on NBC’s ‘The Voice’ in Season 20 replacing Gwen Stefani. The American crooner earlier sat on the big red chair in Season 18.
