Nakia Heats Up ‘The Voice’ With Kings of Leon’s ‘Sex on Fire’
The burly, bearded bluesman was "excited" to sing the Kings of Leon rocker, even though Cee Lo felt it took Nakia "out of his comfort zone."
"I don't want to let Cee Lo down," said Nakia. "It's a lot of extra pressure because this is a big moment for me."
Nakia, dressed in a black suit with his hair slicked back, delivered a raspy version of 'Sex on Fire' for the live performance. With two backup dancers spinning lit torches behind him, he pranced around the stage as he slapped hands with the audience. At one point, he spun around to his knees for dramatic effect.
Blake Shelton joked that he felt like Nakia was pointing at him during the performance and that he "felt the burn." Cee Lo told his team member, "Yo, Nakia, that was a great job, dude!"
