Jake Worthington Sang His Heart Out Last Night on ‘The Voice’ [VIDEO]
Season 6 of ‘The Voice’ is almost over. Who will be the winner? I’m hoping it’s Jake Worthington from Team Blake. Jake may not be the strongest vocalist in the competition, but Jake is the most sincere with a whole lotta heart! He is true blue country.
I’m not saying Jake can’t sing, because this kid can. He has a classic country sound that I love. He first sang Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes” in his blind audition and he did it again last night as his final performance on the show. (By the way, that is my all time favorite country song — ever!). This kid just might win it all. The other two finalists are amazing and phenomenal too, so it’s gonna be a tight race.
Jake’s coach Blake Shelton had this to say to Jake after his performance of Bryan Adams’ ‘I Will Be Right Here Waiting For You,’:
“In six seasons of being a coach on this show I don’t think there’s ever been a more sincere narrative of a lyric than you. That’s a trait only a true country artist has.”
The top three also sang with their coaches which was cool. Adam Levine and Christina Grimmie killed it with “Somebody That I Used to Know.” It was amazing. They should consider recording together, seriously. But my guys Blake and Jake tore up Hank Williams Jr.’s “A Country Boy Can Survive.” Knocked it out of the park.
It’s all up to America now. Whether Jake wins the competition or not, he has a career ahead of him and country will welcome him with open arms.
Don’t miss the final show tonight, Tim McGraw will be singing a new song from his upcoming “Sundown Heaven Town” LP.
