MULTI-TALENTED singer in The Voice has it ALL | Journey #49


– That’s hands down the best performance I’ve seen in years on any show. (cheering and applauding) (dramatic music) – [Zeek] I feel like music is one of those special things in life where regardless of where you’re from, you can connect with a stranger. I love the feeling of being
able to share myself creatively. I love being able to connect
with people with the strum of a chord or with a note sung, and this is my opportunity
to do that on The Voice. – Yes, there he is. – ♪ These four lonely walls
have changed the way I feel. ♪ (cheering and applauding) ♪ The way I feel. ♪ ♪ I’m standing still. ♪ – Yes. – ♪ And where else can I go? ♪ ♪ Where else can I go chasing you? ♪ ♪ Chasing you, chasing you ♪ ♪ Memories turn to dust ♪ ♪ Please don’t bury us ♪ ♪ I got you ♪ ♪ I got you ♪ ♪ I ain’t running, running,
running, running, ♪ ♪ Running, running, running,
running from myself no more ♪ ♪ Together we’ll win it all ♪ ♪ No I ain’t running,
running, running, running, ♪ ♪ Running, running, running,
running, from myself no more ♪ ♪ Yeah I’m gonna face it all ♪ ♪ ‘Cause if I lose myself I lose it all ♪ ♪ If I lose myself I lose it all ♪ ♪ If I lose myself I lose it all ♪ (cheering and applauding) – First things first, what is your name, where are you from? – Yeah, my name is Zeek Power and I’m from Brisbane, Queensland. – How long have you been
singing, performing? You perform, obviously,
because you are not shy at all. It’s just very, it oozes from you. – [Zeek] Thank you. – You’re very welcome. – I’ve been playing music my whole life. I just grew up in a family
that was very musical, so you either learn to
sing or play an instrument or you’re just super bored for five hours. – You gonna bring ’em out? You’ve got four chanters,
come and celebrate. – You should probably come out. – Dad, tell me about what
you’re feeling right now. – I’m just very emotional. Just really blessed to see
Zeek doing what he’s doing and enjoying what he’s doing. – Thank you for sharing that. – He’s the one. – Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait a minute, Zeek. First of all, I didn’t even get a chance to get my bid in right now. The crowd just started
screaming, and I just want to say I love the fact of how
pure and authentic and raw and unapologetic you are, but when I tell you, I want
some of what you have too. It’s an exchange. I promise you, whatever I’m giving you, I’m so excited to get it back. So I would love to be your coach. Man, come over here. – I’m gonna go with Kelly.
(cheering and applauding) – The reason I put these
three together is because they are waiting for that big break and I thought about Sam Smith who worked his behind off. The song that Kelly has
picked for me is Lay Me Down and I can definitely relate to the words. The story of my wife and myself. We met on Instagram. – Y’all met on Instagram, that’s right. – She was living in the Middle East and I was living in Australia. We didn’t meet each other for two years. So this song definitely means something because that was like
both of our heart’s cry, being so far apart but that
yearning and that want. A song is always good
when you believe the words that you’re singing, so hopefully
it resonates with people. I’m gonna do my best. (cheering and applauding) – ♪ Yes, I do, I believe
that one day I will be ♪ ♪ Where I was right then
right next to you, ♪ ♪ But it’s hard the day
just seems so dark ♪ ♪ The moon and the stars
are nothing without you ♪ ♪ Told me not to cry when you were gone ♪ ♪ But the feeling’s overwhelming,
it’s much too strong ♪ ♪ Can I lay by your side next to you? ♪ ♪ Cause I don’t want to be here ♪ ♪ If I can’t be with you tonight. ♪ – [Announcer] Kelly, that was fabulous. – None of you were trying
to sound like Sam Smith, it was great, and it was
massive vulnerability with Zeek. I felt the notes a bit, but
you were very vulnerable. – Thanks, George. – Zeek I don’t think that
you did yourself any favors. I felt like you gave up or something. It was weird, or maybe
that was just your energy because I think you had
the best song to show your voice and just to show a
bit of heart in the audience. – You did hold back a little bit on me. You cannot hold back for any of you guys. Do not hold back whenever
you get on stage. That’s the time we’re supposed
to act completely wild in the best way. I know I have to make this decision, so I’m gonna make the decision, Jesus. The artist that I’m going to take through, I feel needs more of my coaching. I feel like we have a ways to go, but it’s going to be quite the journey. Zeek. (cheering and applauding) Welcome to team Kelly. Hello Zeek. – [Zeek] Hello. – So the song is by Billie Eilish, featuring Khalid, Lovely. – Kelly sees something in
me that’s worth saving, and I need to start seeing
that for myself as well. The main thing that I’ve
got to really focus in on and just really nail is
getting out of my own head and just smashing distraction and doubts. – That (sings high), are you
all right with me doing that? – Yes. – [Zeek] All right, cool. – ♪ Tear me to pieces. ♪ But like the way. – I’ll just give you the mic. – No, no, no. But I want you to do that because I still feel like
you’ve yet to give us even more volume, and I
know you can give us more. Zeek always gives me heart, but I still want more of a vocal from him. Let’s roll, let’s go. – ♪ Thought I found a way ♪ ♪ Thought I found a way out ♪ – ♪ But you never go away ♪ ♪ So I guess I gotta stay now ♪ – ♪ Oh I hope some day
I’ll make it out of here ♪ ♪ Even if it takes all
night or a hundred years ♪ – ♪ Isn’t it lovely all alone ♪ ♪ Heart made of glass, my mind of stone ♪ ♪ Tear me to pieces, skin to bone ♪ – ♪ Hello, welcome home ♪ – ♪ Walkin’ out of time ♪ – I loved both of your
performances, so thank you. – Zeek, you’ve just
got something about you that is very honest. – You have these moments
in your voice that is just so tender, and it’s one of a kind and that’s what labels look for. I’m so proud of you, Zeek. – Thank you, Kelly. – ♪ I’ll make it out of here ♪ – ♪ Or even if it takes all night ♪ ♪ Or a hundred years. ♪ – ♪ Need a place to hide,
but I can’t find one near ♪ – ♪ I wanna feel alive but
I can’t fight my fears ♪ ♪ Isn’t it lovely ♪ – Oh! – ♪ All alone ♪ – ♪ Heart made of glass, my mind of stone. ♪ – ♪ Tear me to pieces, skin to bone ♪ – ♪ Hello, welcome home. ♪ (cheering and applauding) – Yes! (cheering and applauding) – Kelly, the decision is yours. The artist that I’m gonna go with is Lara. – [Announcer] Lara, congratulations! You did it, Lara, you won the battle. And here’s the good news. You still have a chance of
winning Kelly’s wild card. – I hope you choose him, Kelly. I think he got loose I mean, you can’t help it if you’re cool. – It’s a blessing and a curse, man. (cheering and applauding) – Kelly, it is time now for
you to choose your wild card from these three remaining artists. – Zeek, your spirit and
just drive is just matched by your voice. It’s so authentic, and I
think you have the space to grow and blossom, and for that reason I have
chosen you as my wild card. (cheering and applauding) Congratulations, Zeek. – Everyone keeps saying
that my name sounds like a super hero name, and also the thing is I love comic books and that’s actually how I met my wife. Naz and I met on line about six years ago. She was selling Batman
phone cases at the time and the rest, as they say, is history. Batman, if you’re
watching this, thanks bro. – My wonderful wild card Zeek. I’m so happy to have you on my team. – And Naz, my wife, she
actually really wanted to make something for
you to say thank you. – Is she here? – Yeah, she’s here. – Hi! – So I drew something
for you and your family. – Oh my gosh. I love this. She actually drew a picture of myself, my husband, and
my son, and it is so dope.

the best version of myself. – Well, I think we should
incorporate her art into the stage. You should be a part of that story. Are you down? – Oh, yeah. – [Kelly] Okay. – Let’s do it. – So no pressure, just make it great. – I’ll try my best. – All of Australia and the rest

down the best performance I’ve seen in years on any show. You are why these shows exist, like the true meaning of
why these shows exist. You’re an artist. The creative is ridiculous, wow. The drawings were so cool, and I was just fixated. That’s not like somebody
who’s on a TV show, that’s a star, ridiculous, Kelly. So good, and dude. You could win this show. That’s stupid, how good that was. – Thank you so much, man. – This week I wanna try
something a little different. – Okay. – I want a little bit more tempo. Just a hair more tempo. – I’ve given him Feels by Calvin Harris, Pharell, and Katy Perry. – Now that Australia’s
voting, all I can do is continue to be myself
and perform the way that I love to perform, and
hopefully that sparks something within the view. ♪ Nothing ever lasts forever, no ♪ ♪ One minute you’re here
