Timyra-Joi and Amber Nicole Sing “Listen” by Beyonce
On October 14, Team Christina‘s Timyra-Joi and Amber Nicole belted out a duet to “Listen” by Beyonce. Initially, Timyra’s nerves got the better of her and she started to tremble during the first line of the song. Amber, on the other hand, owned the song with her stylistic choices. As the ladies continued to practice, Timyra came out of her shell, while Amber gave coach Christina the impression that she was doubting herself. Mentor Ed Sheeran thought that the two ladies leveled out and that it was going to be a pretty close call.
Both teenage singers took the with equally powerful vocals, belting the Dreamgirls ballad. The ladies pulled out all stops with impressive high notes and runs that physically brought Christina to tears.
Coach Cee Lo Green called the performance “unbelievable,” and while Cee Lo is partial to Amber, he gave the round to Timyra. Coach Adam was unable to choose as he felt that both artists were neck-and-neck. After going with her gut, Christina decided to keep Amber on her team.
Unfortunately, no one stole Timyra and she was sent home.
