Watch Melanie Martinez and Sam James Battle in The Voice Knockout Rounds on Oct. 29, 2012 (VIDEO)
In Team Adam’s final Knockout Round pairing, Melanie Martinez’s quirky style is on full display in a performance of La Roux’s “Bulletproof.” Blake’s comment seems to be more about her appearance than her voice when he says, “Watching Melanie is like watching a duo — oh there’s the blond one, oh there’s the brunette one.”
The crowd can feel Sam James’s classic soul in his rendition of Marc Cohn’s “Walking in Memphis.” He had a hard time pronouncing the word “Memphis” in rehearsal, but he pulls through with a heartfelt and moving performance.
Ultimately, Adam chooses Melanie for her unique and haunting voice that he says he’s “never heard before.”
