SN&R cover star James Cavern's audition didn’t make it last night’s premiere of The Voice but that didn’t mean Sacramento went unrepresented.
Sacramento musician Jeremy Briggs got a shot at singing before celebrity coaches Adam Levine, Shakira, Usher and Blake Shelton.
The state-worker-by-day was introduced with a clip that showcased Sacramento (including footage of him performing at Pour House).
After, Briggs belted out a soulful rendition of Bad Company’s “Bad Company.”
The performance earned chair-turns from both Shelton and Shakira, the latter whom praised Brigg’s powerful voice but also his “control and technique.”
Check out more on Briggs, including a clip of his audition, here.
Blind auditions continue tonight at 8 p.m..
Congrats to Jeremy–and here’s hoping Cavern finally gets to make his national debut!
