James Wolpert and Will Champlin Sings “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons
On October 21, Team Adam Levine contestants James Wolpert and Will Champlin out a duet to “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons. Adam chose the pair because he felt that they were both cut of the same cloth, and wanted to challenge the singers to see who was the stronger of the too.
Will struggled in rehearsals with his pitch and upper register, while James had problems with emotionality. After taking Adam and mentor Ryan Tedder’s advice, Will made leaps and bounds while James had to be weary of over-stylizing the song.
Blake Shelton said that James was the surprise out of the performance, as the song wouldn’t seem expected from him. Christina thought that Will was consistent from start to finish with a powerful performance, with James pushing himself too much. Cee Lo liked James alot better than he was expected. Adam felt like both singers did more of an even performance than he expected. After looking at the performers once more, Adam chose James as the winner.
But as Will said his goodbyes, Christina came in with a steal and saved the vocalist from going home.
