The Voice: Jesse Campbell Underperforms "Halo"
Jesse Campbell was the victim of a bad song choice tonight on The Voice. Every week the Team Christina member has been the leading vocalist, but her assignment of Beyonce’s “Halo” was a bit off. Though the judges thought his performance was nearly perfect, Jesse seemed to lack a bit in the vocal department tonight.
There’s no denying that Jesse sang with passion, dedicating the song to his daughter. He explained to Christina that his daughter is his saving grace and it couldn’t have been more obvious than during this performance. Jesse’s vocals were clear and crisp as usual, but it’s almost as if the song wasn’t challenging enough. There was no point in the song where he had a big “moment,” leaving you with goosebumps like every performance before.
Here’s what the judges had to say:
Cee Lo Green: Wonderful. I thought that the staging was beautiful and you sung the hell out of that. I thought it was a great job.
Adam Levine: Your ability is so crazy. I wasn’t feeling the song choice until it kicked in, then everyone thought it was amazing. You are like a huge favor for this thing.
Blake Shelton: It was great. Nobody’s going to sit here and say that was anything short of a great performance.
Christina Aguilera: I think on an emotional level you really brought it today. It was well put together with the photos and you proved that point tonight.
