Team Blake Favorite Tackles Song Fans Chose

As the Top 13 contestants for Season 16 of The Voice prepared for the second week of normal live shows, a curveball was thrown their way. Instead of having the freedom to choose their own songs, the contestants were left at the mercy of the viewers.

In a practice The Voice has implemented in the past, the show called on viewers to submit songs they wanted to hear their favorite contestants perform.

For Team Blake favorite Dexter Roberts, the viewers picked the Tim McGraw hit “Something Like That.” The song debuted in 1999, and topped the Hot Country Songs chart following its release.

Roberts gave his cover of “Something Like That” his all, instantly taking command of the stage with his performance. That’s exactly what he needed to do, since the song is energetic by nature.

Those in the studio audience seemed to be loving what Roberts was doing with the song, and could be heard cheering for him throughout the performance.

Most importantly, it seemed that Roberts himself was having a blast singing it.
