On April 28, Team Usher soul singer Josh Kaufman gave a rousing performance of “This Is It” by Kenny Loggins.

Usher brought in her own producer, Natural, to give his two cents on Josh’s impending performance. Natural gave Josh pointers to focus on his energy and tempo in order to use his full vocal range on the 1979 record.

After hitting the stage with the soulful rendition, Josh was told by Shakira that his sweet sincerity and soulful sound is impressive and he’s found his groove with soul songs. Adam Levine admitted to being very angry at giving up such a talent in Josh, who is unique, powerful, and has a tone like no other.

Blake Shelton praised Josh for ability to sound beautiful, and couldn’t believe that Adam gave him up. Usher agreed that Josh’s sound is “unique,” stating that Kenny Loggins has a “manly falsetto,” and that Josh has the same quality. Usher told his contestant that he can definitely see him going to the top.
