Warren County native Michael Williams didn’t score victory on Monday night’s episode of NBC singing competition “The Voice,” but he did earn a second chance.
The 18-year-old from Mason, who performs at Kings Island, went head-to-head with Allegra Miles. After singing a duet of “How Will I Know” by Whitney Houston, Williams was lauded by celebrity judges. Kelly Clarkson said Williams has “a magnificent tool for a voice” and John Legend said he has “range … power and control. All of the things you want from a great singer. Blake Shelton said it wasn’t a battle between the two, “it was just a great duet.”
Miles beat Williams when celebrity judge Nick Jonas named her the winner of the battle. However, moments later, Jonas saved Williams, who will now compete in the new Four-Way Knockout against the other coaches’ saved artists. At the top of the final episode of Knockouts, voting will open for America to choose which of the four artists moves forward in the competition after their performances.
At the top of the first live show, “Voice” host Carson Daly will reveal which of the four artists was voted through by America, and that artist will continue to the live shows with their original team.
