On May 20, Team Shakira‘s R&B singer Kris Thomas crooned Miguel‘s hit tune “Adorn” on The Voice 2013. Shakira chose the song hoping to bring out Kris’s sexy, upbeat side. Mentor Cee Lo advised the crooner to build his “swag” for his performance.
Taking the stage with a funky, upbeat rendition of the Miguel single, Kris brought his smooth R&B vocals and lots of attitude which got a standing ovation from his coach Shakira.
Adam Levine praised the singer on his fantastic voice, but critiqued his visible over-thinking. Coach Usher agreed with Adam, stating that he was thinking too much and needed to open up more, but told the singer he was an incredible talent.
Going on the defense, coach Shakira said that her singer deserved a break for being nervous on stage and that Kris has a sound that sets him apart from everyone in the competition. This ultimately caused coach Usher to hide behind his chair. Sorry, Ush!
