Two LDS contestants battled for a spot on Team Adam on NBC’s hit reality show, The Voice.
Late in September Dave Crosby wowed the judges with his rendition of “I’ll Follow You Into the Dark.” The blind audition went viral, racking up over four million views on YouTube. Dylan Gerard’s audition was also a hit, with the singer getting on-the-spot training from judge Jennifer Hudson. His audition has surpassed the one million mark.
Yesterday, Crosby and Gerard went head-to-head in the Battle Round. The performance was only shown in the battle montage, but you can catch the brief glimpse in the video below. Spoilers: Adam chose Gerard as the winner of the round, stating he was “choosing the person who I feel, there is still this unknown.” Gerard will now move on to perform in the upcoming Knockout Round.
My journey on the Voice ended tonight. Although it was sooner than I was hoping for, I am so grateful for the experience of a lifetime. Thank you so so so much to everyone who has supported me through this. Thank you to my battle partner @dylangerard for sharing the final stage with me, and thank you to @adamlevine for some seriously great advice that will stick with me forever. I wish I had done some things differently in that last performance, I wish there would have been some steals left for us (we were actually 22nd of the 24 battle performances…), but time to put it all behind and look ahead. I learned a lot of things about myself and my voice. I’m really excited to get back to writing music! #bestisyettocome #thevoice #teamadam
Of his win, Gerard said:
Such a bittersweet moment. @davecrosby is one of my favorite people and I count him as a friend now. He’s just such a genuine, amazing dude and I loved getting to sing this song with him. I’m excited and thankful for the possibilities to come. @nbcthevoice #teamadam #thevoice #battlerounds #battleofthecombovers #jacksonbrowne #doctormyeyes
