Bluffton native makes his mark on The Voice and gets the coaches talking

Bluffton is more than proud of its latest resident to make his imprint on "The Voice."

Stee auditioned, wowed the audience and the judges, and John Legend became his coach.

This week it was time for the three-way knockouts which are always exciting, particularly when you get some of the heaviest hitters of the competition so far together on one stage. Monday night, that happened for Team Legend, and it ended up working in Team Gwen's favor.

For the Team Legend Knockout round Monday night, Legend set a three-way faceoff between Lila Forde, Deejay Young, and Stee, all of whom were coming off their own victories. Almost immediately, it was clear that Forde, with her cover of James Taylor's "Fire and Rain," was the runaway favorite of the group, and ended up winning the Knockout and advancing to the Playoffs for Team Legend. But that didn't mean everyone else was out in the cold. Stee, who hails from Bluffton South Carolina chose the R&B hit "Pretty Wings" by Maxwell, and used the number to showcase the full breadth of his vocal range. By the time it was over, even as the Coaches leaned toward Forde as the winner, they had nothing but love for Stee's work. It was Gwen Stefani who made the steal.

"Now I completely get Stee," Niall Horan said. "You looked the most comfortable, the most confident. The emotion you put into it, it felt like it was your record. I love Stee!"

"Wow Stee, all you have to do is come up and smile onstage and we fall in love with you," Stefani said.

She continued, "You all are so incredible, but when Stee finished and kinda did that whiparound, like...OK, kinda like a 'Drop the mic' moment." 

Onward and upward. Our Bluffton buddy may just be strong enough to win this shooting match.
