Voice star Billy Gilman has steadily become a frontrunner this season. The Team Adam contestant, who was nominated for a Grammy as a young country star, delivered another powerful performance during Monday night's live show, as he chose to sing one of Adele's most emotional ballads: "All I Ask."
Billy has covered Adele before on the show. His blind audition, which turned all four coaches' chairs, was set to her song "When We Were Young." And although this was Billy's first time performing "All I Ask" on television, he originally sang it for his audition to make it into the blinds in the first place. It helped him get on the show, and it's certain to help him stay on the show.
Maybe one day he and Adele will be able to duet together. But until then, we can enjoy his latest performance, which coach Adam Levine encouraged him to make "intimate." Billy certainly did that, as by the end of the song he had tears welling up in his eyes. Adam himself appeared visibly moved and told Billy afterward, "I think for the first time in your stretch on this show, you made me feel something."
