Things are definitely going Diego Val’s way on The Voice…
The 25-year-old Peruvian singer battled against his fellow Team Cee Lo member Caitlin Michele in his Knockout Round during Monday’s episode of NBC’s hit singing competition.
Val, who advanced after defeating JR Aquino in the Battle Round, performed a high octane rendition of Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way” while Michele took on Evanescence’s moody “Bring Me to Life.”
Coach Cee Lo Green didn’t seem impressed with Val or Michele, saying neither game their best performance. But he did have positive words for Val.
“I like you a lot,” declared Green, “and I think you’ve got a lot of personality.”
And that’s all it took for Green to keep Val and take his all-male team to the live shows.
“For a second I thought I was out,” said Val. “Cee Lo put a lot a faith in me and the next round I’m just gonna kill it.
But the news wasn’t so positive for another Latino contestant on Team Cee Lo…
Daniel Rosa battled against Mackenzie Bourg in his Knockout Round clash, performing Taylor Swift’s “Back to December.”
But Bourg’s visionary take on Carly Rae Jepsen’s inescapable hit “Call Me Maybe” seemed to impress the coaches more.
“Daniel, you are a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful singer,” said Green of Rosa, who had thoroughly impressed the coaches in the previous round. “You are better than your performance today.”
And with that, Rosa’s The Voice dreams are dashed this season.
