Jennifer Nettles and John Glosson Sing a ‘Prayer’ on ‘Duets’
“It is all on the line this week, so we have to bring it,” John Glosson said of his ‘Duets‘ performances this evening. With the pressure of next week’s finale looming over his head, the young singer decided to stay within his comfort zone this week with his duet with Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles, performing the gorgeous Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion classic ‘The Prayer.’
With his fellow Nettles protege stepping outside his comfort zone, did the lack of risk-taking hurt Glosson’s chances of taking home the grand prize next week? According the judges, the Georgia native rightfully deserves his good standing in the Top 3.
“You are wonderful. Your voice is magnificent,” John Legend said of the performance. “You sounded beautiful tonight and that song took advantage of all your strengths.”
Playfully dubbing Glosson as “Georgia Bocelli” all season, Robin Thicke was pleasantly surprised with the song choice. “He is Georgia Bocelli right there,” acknowledged Thicke. The soul singer was quick to inform Glosson he was off-key on one note, but assured the young singer he finished the big ballad with a bang.
“There is something super special with your voice,” said Kelly Clarkson. “It’s hypnotic. It’s a blessing.”
