'The Voice' Season 18: Thunderstorm Artis honors his wife while Megan Danielle dedicates song to her siblings
Thunderstorm Artis from Team Nick Jonas dedicated his Top 9 performance to his wife, Faith Artis. He had chosen to perform on the song 'Let Me Go Home' by Michael Bublé.
Since this was fan week, a very young Kate from New York City who happens to be a big fan of Thunderstorm introduced his performance on tonight's episode. The 24-year-old artist brought a lot of serenity to the performance and his guitar skills just took it a notch higher. He put in a lot of emotion into the song and it was a very fitting tribute to his wife.
After his performance, coach Blake Shelton praised his guitar skills and commended him for taking the melody and song and making it his own. His coach Nick mentioned that his dog and wife Priyanka Chopra ran into the room to groove along to the performance while noting that Thunderstorm has cleared his path to the finale from the very beginning.
"There is nothing bad to say about thunderstorm this guy just delivers a perfect performance each and every week that leaves you with chills and goosebump!!! Beautiful, beautiful job @Thunder_artis #TheVoice #VoteForThisGuy" wrote a fan on Twitter after the performance.
While another noted "Thunderstorm Artis pouring all his emotion into this. Gosh! I love his voice and he feels so approachable. This is honest and poignant, sweet, and tender. He sets an introspective tone and gives us varied dynamics. Very pleasing. #TheVoice #VoiceTop9."
The next artist to perform was 18-year-old Megan Danielle from Team Kelly Clarkson. She and her coach Clarkson connected remotely for the rehearsals and Kelly mentioned that she sees a lot of herself in the artist.
Megan was dedicating her Top 9 performance to her siblings because growing up they were all she had after her father left. Coach Clarkson was seen wiping away her tears before mentioning that their story is quite similar to each other.
For the performance, Megan sang 'What Hurts The Most' by country band Rascal Flatts. She had an amazing rasp to her voice and displayed great vocal control during her performance. After her performance, her coach gushed eloquently, stating: "I love you. I think you are so magical, your tone is so distinct. No one on the planet sounds like you. Each time you sing it sounds like a broken heart trying to fly. I want to thank you for being in my presence and singing and that is a very powerful voice you got there."
Fans loved her performance equally and resonated with her emotions. "So beautiful, Meghan’s performance tonight gave me goosebumps so beautiful. #teamkelly, #thevoice," wrote one after her performance.
While another wrote, "#TheVoice - #MeganDanielle sings with such emotion and heart - moves me to #chills - she has that unique gift."
