‘The Voice': Team Blake’s Cali Wilson Does Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Butterflies’
On Monday night, (Nov. 18) the remaining Voice contestants moved into the Finals round, where they performed live for coaches coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani and John Legend, as well as America's votes. This evening also happened to be Dedication Night, with each singer dedicating his or her performance to an important thing or person in their lives.
Team Blake's Cali Wilson took the stage early in the evening, fueled on a little advice from her coach. who noted that breaking into the Nashville scene is like joining a family, but "it's hard to get into that circle," he admitted. "It helped me because you constantly have to push yourself."
Wilson, who met her girlfriend in Nashville at her very first show, admitted she knew something of that vibe. "I'm singing [Kacey Musgraves'] 'Butterflies' to dedicate to my girlfriend Grace," she informed Shelton. "She supports me unconditionally."
"I can tell she supports you," quipped Shelton. "I saw you guys literally making out after you made it to my team."
"When Grace and I started falling in love with each other I was in Nashville; I felt alone and isolated," Wilson told the audience. "I didn't know if I was going to move back home to Iowa. I was in a bad place mentally. She was the light in the darkness. I probably wouldn't have made it through that time without her.
After her impassioned performance of "Butterflies," Shelton observed, "I saved Cali because I feel like she still had a lot of potential and there's a lot America hasn't seen yet. I literally can't believe I had to save you. I'm shocked."
