On November 18, Team Cee Lo Green indie artist Caroline Pennell gave a rousing performance of “Leaving on a Jet Plane” by John Denver. Caroline requested to sing the song, as it relates very much to the fact that she will be leaving home for the first time when she goes off to college. Wanting to support his artist, Cee Lo supported Caroline’s decision, but reminded her that she need to show her connection to the song.

The 17-year-old took the stage with the hazy tune, of course adding her own Caroline touches. Cee Lo was happy to allow Caroline to realize her dream of being on stage, and singing her choice of song. Going forward, Cee Lo noted that he would want to see Caroline open up more in a performance.

Adam Levine talked on Caroline’s artistry and her ability to tell her story through her song and said that he had a wonderful time hearing Caroline’s experiences through the words of the song.
