On May 13, Team Shakira's singer Garrett Gardner belted out Backstreet Boys’ mega-hit song “I Want It That Way” on The Voice 2013. Shakira thought it would be interesting to do a rock cover of the boy band pop song.

Coach Adam Levine decided to be honest with Garrett, admitting that it wasn’t his favorite choice, while Blake Shelton believed that it was a great choice on Shakira’s part to throw him something out of “left field.” Usher said that he could see Garrett's growth, adding that if there's “no risk, no reward.”

Garrett’s coach Shakira said that despite Adam’s constructive criticism, she bets by tomorrow a lot of people would have downloaded his “bad ass rendition” because it’s “cool as hell.”
