Judges Comments: Kelly: “You are my favorite kind of male voice singer, all heart and all passion. You have range for days, it sounds so cool. Who influences you? (he says, Kelly).” Nick: “I feel like you and I working together, we could deep dive into emo pop-rock. And that is precisely why you should pick me.” John: “Your voice has this ethereal kind of presence, I regret not turning.” Blake: “I don’t know about emo pop-rock, but I don’t think it matters. I have won this show six times, with rock artists, soul, R&B, county. People will like the weirdness of you and me paired up.” Micah chooses Kelly.

You have this Travis Tritt thing going on and I love it. You are what is missing in country music.” Blake: “Cam, I hear a lot of elements in your voice that I love. I think you need a coach that can identify what lane you are on.
