-What’s your name? My name is Michael Lee,
and I’m from Fort Worth, Texas. -All right!
-No, no, no, no! You literally
beat me to death…
Aw! …with that
vocal performance. I was thinking the whole time,
it’s soulful. it’s the blues,
and then I was like, “Screw it. I can
coach this guy, man.”
Wow. I think this would be
a match made in Heaven,
as a matter of fact. What a vote
of confidence. [ Laughter ] [ As Blake ]
“You know, I was sitting here,
and I was listening. I was like
‘Might as well turn.'” Great pitch, Blake.
-Actually, he’s exactly right. I knew you
deserved to have all the button pushes
you could get, man.
Mm. I’d be honored
to be your coach. -Why, thank you.
-Yes, sir. [ Cheers and applause ]
[ Laughs ] That song choice says
a lot about someone and what they want
to accomplish.
Yeah. When I turned around
first… [ Laughter ] You know, I am maybe
the only one who’s worked with
a solo guitar player, who plays solos,
who plays the blues, who plays
that style of music. Well, I’ve also worked
with a couple of guitar players
on this show. Solo — like,
solo guitar players? Guys that play the blues?
-Yes. Last season —
remember that? [ Laughter ] I think we just
need to add mud and just, like,
let them go at it. I will tell you,
as a Texas sister, choose a team that you
feel like you’re going
to stick out on…
Oh! …and not a team
that maybe isn’t, like, [ Deep voice ] “I have
all the guitarists on my team.” “Oh, I have all the guitarists
on my team.” [ Normal voice ]
So, I’m Team JHud all the way.
There it go. Ain’t nobody
on her team like you.
Nobody. There’s nobody
on a team like him, first of all.
That’s what he says
to all the people to make them
feel special. [ Laughter ] Obviously, your guitar,
that’s your extra superpower, but I’m sure you could
put that guitar down and my shoe would still
be in the same spot that it is right now.
-Well, thank you. And no, I don’t know
how to play no guitar, but Jennifer how
to stand flat foot and sing. Yes, she do, just like you.
-Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! [ Cheers and applause ] ♪ Thrill is gone, yeah ♪ Ohhhhhh All right, who do you
pick as your coach? ♪ Whoa, oh, oh [ Cheering, shouting ] Come on, man! Come on, Michael! I pick… [ Cheering continues ] …Blake. Yeah! Yes! Are you serious? The thrill is gone for you!
The thrill is gone! -Get my shoe.
-Whoo!
