Blake Shelton declared that Team Kelly Clarkson’s Kenzie Wheeler is “probably going to win The Voice.”
Following Wheeler’s impressive knockout round performance, where he covered Luke Combs’ “Beer Never Broke My Heart” on Monday (April 26). Shelton admits that the contestant has what it takes to take home the title of becoming the Season 20 winner of hit singing competition show.
His performance earned praise from the country superstar as well as his coach Kelly Clarkson and Nick Jonas.
“You’re probably going to win this show…” Shelton gushed. “You’re probably going to win The Voice and that haircuts going to be trending and I want to be in on it.”
“Kenzie, he’s the real deal and we can joke about the hair doo and all that but you’re a talented S.O.B.,” Shelton said. “You really are man, I would probably go with Kenzie.”
“You have a shot to win this thing cause I think that the country is going to fall in love with you,” Jonas said.
“Kenzie, I watched you in rehearsal sing this song and I was like oh no, he’s like a real Blake fan and I was just like I just totally took that dream away,” Clarkson added before Shelton chimed in “we’ll have our moment one day.”
“You’re captivating and you have a natural gift on stage of drawing people in and want to be friends with you or want to get a beer with you,” Clarkson praised Wheeler’s talent before crowning him the winner of the knockout round against Avery Roberson.
