On May 13, Team Shakira‘s singer Kris Thomas crooned Motown’s hit song “I’ll Be There” by The Jackson 5 on The Voice 2013.

Adam gave credit where it was due, and complimented Kris for taking on a song that is considered a “task.” Blake Shelton told Kris that he did a great job and always goes for songs that push his limits, while Usher gave the crooner some constructive criticism. Usher noted that Kris’s sound jumped back and forth between The Jackson 5’s version and Mariah Carey’s rendition of the classic, however, he praised the singer for taking a risk with the tune.
