Joe Maye already captivated the coaches with his rendition of “I Put a Spell on You,” when Christina Aguilera left her big red chair to sing with the contestant–at the urging of fellow coach Pharrell Williams.
“That is one of my favorite songs in the whole wide world to sing. I’d actually love to sing that with you one day,” she said, prior to Pharrell coaxing her out of her chair.
Joe Maye’s reaction to having sung with Christina Aguilera was as exciting as the duet itself.
“Oh my god!” he screamed, jumping up and down on the stage.
Both Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera turned their chairs for Maye, but after the duet she sang with him, his choice was obvious.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Christina Aguilera said she has high hopes for the singer.
“This could be the season, cross my fingers, that Team Xtina might take it,” she said. “I’ve got some pretty great talents.”
Joe Maye isn’t the first amazing contestant Christina Aguilera scored either. During the first week of the blinds, she gained Alisan Porter. Porter starred alongside Jim Belushi in the film Curly Sue. Her rendition of Linda Ronstadt’s “Blue Bayou” that blew the socks off all four coaches.
