Devyn Deloera Courts Team Christina with ‘Ain’t No Other Man’ on ‘The Voice’

The Voice‘ got a little visit from Texas this season in the form of Devyn Deloera. And like every good contestant, there’s an even better backstory.

“When I was younger a lot of the kids were more into sports and I was really artistic. I was considered an odd ball so I retreated into my own cocoon,” said Deloera. “It was depressing, and eventually I was taken out of school.”

Deloera’s mother eventually convinced her to use her voice to allow her to come out of her shell, and she did just that. “If I didn’t have music, I don’t think I would’ve come out of it,” she said. “I think it saved me. It made me happy again.”

From commercials beforehand, we already knew that a contestant was going to sing a song already made famous by one of the coaches, but color us surprised when she chose to sing ‘Ain’t No Other Man’ by Christina Aguilera, one of the hardest songs to sing due to its change in range and the many breaths a singer must take while performing.

While we thought Deloera gave just an okay performance, Aguilera wound up being the first chair to turn around (imagine that), and was quickly followed by Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Part of us would like to think Levine did it out of spite to spark his and Aguilera’s little rivalry, but of course we don’t know for sure.

“I will shed tears early on in this competition if you choose these boys,” said Aguilera, begging for Deloera to pick her as her coach. “They don’t understand your vocal talent and I just want to nurture that.”

And just like that, Aguilera added a second performer to her team!
