-Wow! -Yeah! -Whoo! -Let’s go!
-Yes! -Whoo!
-Wow! -You got blocked. -Nick, did you turn for him?
-How dare you! -Did you turn for him?
-I did. -Oh. Oh, what happened?
-That was you. [ Laughter ] -Oh, what happened to Nick? -You know,
we’re gonna talk later, John. -We’ll talk about it later.
-Talk about this outside. -[ Laughs ]
-Wow! What is your name? -My name is Nelson Cade III. -Alright! -Nelson, I obviously
can’t really say much ’cause I’ve been blocked. -What happened? What happened?
[ Laughter ] -I think someone over here
blocked me. -John!
-I did it. It was me. -Well, I’ll just say this. I’m jealous that they get to
fight for you. -No pun intended.
-No pun intended. -♪ Still gets jealous ♪ -Yes! That sounded so good! Get it, John! -That sounded —
sounded pretty good. [ Laughter ] -So, I wrote “star” and “wow”
on my notepad here. -Oh, wow.
-Wish I could — -Wait a minute. So you would —
So you could remember? -So I could remember.
-You wrote st– [Laughs] -I was home-schooled.
-Okay. -“I was home…” -Me, too.
-“Hope I don’t forget this. ‘Star.'” -“Wow.” -So, it’s begun.
-“Singer.” -“Cool hat.” [ Laughter ] You — You could probably win
this competition. -Oh, wow.
-You are a, uh — You’re a star. -[ Laughs ]
-And “wow.” -Thank you, man.
-Thank you. -You notice I turned around
quickly. I wanted to almost turn around when I heard you playing
the guitar. I was like, “This person
is gonna be cool.” -“Star.” [ Laughter ] -Oh, my God.
-Thank you. In the words of
the great Nick Jonas, “Wow!” You are a star! The voice, it has a raspiness. It has this golden,
kind of honey-dipped vibe, too. -Honey-dipped?
-And — Yes, honey-dipped. -Now I’m hungry. -Honey-dipped.
-I like that. -Yes. It rocks. It can do kind
of blues-y kind of stuff. But you could sing Stevie Wonder
and sound incredible, too. -Earlier this year, I actually
got to play with Stevie Wonder. -You did?!
-Yes, sir. [ Cheers and applause ] -Nelson, Stevie’s
a very good friend of mine. -Oh, Lord! -I’m just telling the truth. He sang at my wedding, okay? -Oh, my God.
-Just dropping the names. -If you happen to be
on Team Legend, we could reunite you guys
is what I’m saying. -Ooh, man. -You don’t need John Legend
to get Stevie Wonder. You did that by yourself.
So I’m just saying. -[ Laughs ] That is true. -I’m just saying.
-Yes! -I can at least give you
his number, though. -Man, I love the vibe. I love also your spirit,
just you talking, your smile. You seem very friendly
and, like, cool. Everybody’s talented,
generally, on this show. Your personality,
that’s gonna beam through, man. So please, be you, and don’t
try to be anybody else. [ Applause ]
Yeah. -Why are you giving me
the look of death? -I’m just looking at you,
seeing what you have to say. -Yeah, but you’re
making me uncomfortable the way you’re looking at me,
though. -I think you’re uncomfortable
because you — you feel like whatever you say
is not gonna work right now. -No, it’s because you mostly
never make eye contact with me. -Oh, okay.
-And now you’re, like, staring directly in my eye.
[ Laughter ] Hi, Nelson. Man, I got
to tell you something. The intro — I mean, that was
such an amazing guitar part. -Thank you.
-In the pocket — flawless. And I wasn’t really sure,
you know, musically, what your lane is. You could run the gamut
from Lead Belly all the way to ZZ Top. You’re gonna have a hell
of a run on this thing, man. I’d be proud to be your coach. -Oh, my gosh. -Hey, man,
Nick hasn’t had a chance… -Oh, yeah.
-Oh, that’s — He’s blocked. That’s right.
-Alright, alright, alright. -Everybody calm down.
Nelson, we love your smile. We love your voice.
And we want to know who do you pick as your coach? -It — It’s a hard decision,
y’all. -Come on, Nelson! Come on home!

  1. He was just ok. That’s the risk of doing such a big song from a legendary performer. You’re just going to pale in comparison

  2. Am I the only one who is not hype from this performance? I thought it’s ok but not outstanding or anything like that.

  3. Nick blocks Kelly for a lady pop artist, then Blake blocks Kelly, again. This time, for the country artist.

    Place your bets

    Mark my words😁😂

  4. Blake: Wait a minute. Nick hasn't… Oh, he's blocked.
    Blake copying what Gwen had said to him last season. 😁👍

  5. Im tired of these stupid super wide brimmed hats that people wear..its like THE hat people wear on this show like, they're not an artist until they wear the hat

  6. 😂😂😂The vibes in this show make it more popular than the contestant's voices. Anyone else share my point of view? Love it already.

  7. Great effortless performance interested in seeing more from him Good luck Nathan and Good luck to you Nathan and likewise Good to all the other hopeful contestants on this season of The Voice!

  8. Hopefully he doesn’t pick Kelly because she is literally going to let him go in battles probably for someone younger! I HOPE he picks John because when John blocks it literally LENGENDARY!!!!!

  9. I love how Nick gives it back to the other judges he is very quick witted and a great addition to the show

    all 4 judges are awesome and gell so well together

  10. Nick ,John,Kelly and Blake all at the same time is too much to handle.. And when they sang jealous ooh my God!!! Season 18 is 🔥🔥🔥🔥 I will definitely be waking up at 4am tomorrow to watch the premiere.Will be watching in Kenya 🇰🇪

  11. Hope he chose Blake or Kelly Whatever he does he needs to stay away from John Legend. John reminds me of Adam in that he'll throw his artists under the bus in a heartbeat and he gives them songs to sing that don't compliment their voice and style when he wants them out. Also, I'd rather have Justin Timberlake on the show over Nick
