The Voice 22 Knockouts: Omar Cardona Unleashes the Dragon

The Voice 22 Knockouts Ian Harrison Morgan Taylor Jose Cardona John Legend

The second night of The Voice season 22 3-way Knockouts bring more thrilling performances. In this new preview, three Team John Legend artists vye for a spot on his team. Indie artist Ian Harrison sings Young the Giant’s “Cough Syrup.” Next, Omar Jose Cardona performs an energetic version of Imagine Dragon’s “Radioactive.” Morgan Taylor closes out the set with a soulful rendition of James Brown’s “I Got You (I Feel Good).”

Blake Shelton turned around for Morgan, but still feels like he discovered her with this latest performance. “That has to be your best performance,” he says. He felt Ian also did a “really solid job.” During Omar’s performance, he took a dramatic gasp of air. Impressed, Blake claims a bug would probably fly his throat if he tried something like that. He’d chose Omar.

“You got lost in the sauce a couple of times,” Camila Cabello tells Morgan. It’s a compliment! “You have this giant dragon in you,” Camila describes Omar, “But you know how to tame it. You just make it look so fun and exciting.” 

“Ian you’re my boy,” Gwen Stefani says, “You know I love you. I love how your voice breaks up and it’s just so cool sounding, and has such amazing tones.” As far as Omar is concerned, Gwen remarks, “You go into these places that I’ve never heard before. It makes me want to see more and more and just throw songs at you and see what you can do with them.” 

Unleashing the Dragon

Before he makes a decision, John offers a few words to his team members. “Ian, you sound like you should be making alternative records, no question,” however, John believes that when the singer performs live, “you need to make sure people feel it–not just vocally, but physically. I think that’s the only thing that’s missing.” He believes that Morgan started to “open people’s eyes” as to how “amazing” she can be. “That’s exciting. You just nailed it. That was so good.” For Omar he says, “You were building the performance, and holding back in the right moments, unleashing the dragon when necessary. I think you just built a journey in that short time.” 

Who will John choose to move on to the live shows? Will Camila or Gwen steal an artist? Tune into The Voice Tuesday night at 8 pm ET/PT on NBC to find out.
