'The Voice' Battles: Peedy Chavis, 19, wows fans as he takes on The Joy Reunion trio
'Peedy made it seem that the trio was just his backup singers,' said a 'The Voice' fan
For the longest time fans of 'The Voice' have always complained against the showrunners' decision to pit groups against solo performers as they felt that it's unfair to the solo artist competing on the show. But in the case of Peedy Chavis that argument doesn't seem to be applicable. The 19-year-old not only wowed everybody with her jaw-dropping performance during the show's battles round but also managed to take on a seasoned trio- The Joy Reunion.
The performers were tasked with performing 'Joy to the World' by Three Dog Night. The Elvis Presley impersonator effortlessly managed to showcase his amazing vocals and big personality as he put on a full-on performance for the coaches and audience dancing along while crooning his lyrics. Although The Joy Reunion entered the competition with plenty of advantages on their side, Peedy quickly overshadowed them with his smooth vocals and killer dance moves. By the end of their performance, the coaches- Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Ariana Grande couldn't stop showering praises upon Peedy and his strong stage presence.

When it was time for Peedy and The Joy Reunion's coach Blake Shelton to reveal his pick of winner, it came as no surprise when Blake picked the 19-year-old as the winner. The Joy Reunion's trio too agreed with Blake's decision and declared that they were extremely impressed by their competitor's performance. Fans too were happy with Blake's decision and joked about how Peedy overshadowed everybody on the stage to the extent that The Joy Reunion trio looked like his backup singers instead of his rivals!
A fan commented on the show's YouTube page with, "Joy Reunion was great with their harmonies,but Peedy was greater and he was clearly performing, something he was memorable for doing at his Blinds. He deserved that win." "Peedy made it seem that the trio was just his backup singers," wrote another fan. "Joy Reunion are lovely but they sounded like Peedy's backup singers here. Well deserved victory for him," seconded a fan.
Another fan expressed, "Joy Reunion was a pleasure to watch again, and Peedy just snatched our hearts. His spin on that classic was remarkable. The vocal and the little nuances were nice and his accentuating certain lyrics with his easy touch of theatre surely made that performance exceptional. Those polyester bell bottom-like slacks were a trip to see. He definitely knows how to compliment a classic and the trio who sang that song. He’s no dark horse; he’s in it to win it!" "Peedy was just more entertaining to watch. He is such a performer and my favorite part was at the end when he went around the group and put his around the guy and sang with them. It was pretty infectious," observed a fan. "Omg I've been waiting ALL weekend for more battles, and DAMN PEEDY IS GOOD, really well deserved. I think he has A LOT to grow and explode of his talent yet. So happy for him," shared a fan.
