No, no. It’s not. When you are one of two—and as you said before, it’s a matter of like a very subjective decision that’s made in the moment.
Yeah. And I kind of say it was like winning silver at the Olympics.
I have to ask you though, like when you get a song like that, and I don’t know if that Hall and Oates song is in your usual wheelhouse, but how difficult is it when you’re given, in a show like that, a song you don’t know or don’t especially like…how do you make it work – if that’s ever happened?
Well, you know, well, what happened was, you know, when Cee Lo chose me for his team at the blind auditions he said he heard, one of the things he said was he heard a lot of soul in my voice. And that’s something I never heard and I’ve never explored that side of my voice. So when we got to that first rehearsal with Cee Lo and Rob, you know, they both kind of said the same thing. That one of the reasons Nick and I were paired together was because we both have this blue-eyed soul thing. And that was their words.
Yeah. I definitely heard that.
And that is Hall and Oates in a nutshell. You know, this blue-eyed soul, pop, that’s just infectious. So hearing the song for the first time was kind of like, whoa, what am I going to do here? How is this me? But after kind of getting into the groove and hearing what Cee Lo and Rob had to say and how to take what I normally do but mix it with what they hear in me, it was just such a huge learning experience. And it was really exciting to kind of—it’s very easy to stay in your comfort zone. But one of the reasons I went on the show was to step out of my comfort zone, and this song really helped me do that. And it’s kind of just opened my eyes to this whole—all these other kinds of songs and kinds of music that I maybe never would have considered before. But I’m having, you know, it was a lot of fun and I’m having a lot of fun kind of exploring that side of my voice now.
And who knows? I mean, some of those ideas of how to find that nugget within a different genre, you could find other genres.
