On Monday night’s The Voice Battles, Laura Littleton and Ross Clayton performed “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” by Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The two aspiring singers, coached by Niall Horan, did a great job with the duet. But what did the judges think?
Chance the Rapper said he had never heard of the iconic duet, a comment that launched Kelly Clarkson out of her chair. “It’s one of the biggest duets!” she exclaimed in disbelief. But Chance praised the cover, saying “the whole thing top to bottom was amazing.” Kelly, who has covered the song herself on her talk show, thought it was perfect for Ross and was impressed with Laura’s “intoxicating vibrato.” Blake Shelton thought the pair had delivered a “rock-solid vocal.” It was a tough call, but Niall went with his gut and chose Ross in the end.
