On The Voice’s season 19 finale, John Holiday and his coach teamed up for a Legend-ary duet!
After showcasing his stunning range and high register all season, the music professor took the stage one last time for a moving performance of the Simon & Garfunkel classic “Bridge Over Troubled Water” with coach John Legend.
“This is a song that’s gonna bring so much peace and hope to people,” Holiday said. “A song for healing.”
“It’s gonna be a Legendary holiday,” the Rosenberg, Texas, native added. “I can’t even tell you how much fun it’s been to be on his team and be coaches by him and mentored by him.”
“It’s been a joy and a pleasure, my friend,” Legend agreed as the pair took the stage at dueling pianos for the powerful ballad.
During Monday’s live show, Holiday continued his incredible run of diva-worthy covers with a performance of Beyoncé’s “Halo” — showing off his operatic chops on the ballad’s high notes and runs — as well as an original single “Where Do We Go From Here.”
“I love that you continue to show America more of yourself,” his coach raved of the performances. “You put your heart out there every single week. You have an out-of-this-world gift. What a magical voice you have… I’m so proud of you and so happy for you.”
Holiday has wowed the coaches all season — from his Blind Audition performance of Ella Fitzgerald’s “Misty” to his soaring covers of Eric Carmen’s “All By Myself” and Coldplay’s “Fix You” — and now he’s got a shot at landing coach John Legend his second-ever Voice championship.
