There were a lot of showstoppers on The Voice this season, many of which belonged to newly minted Rock Queen Juliet Simms, but the stars just seemed to align on this one. Never mind that the lyrics to the Bon Jovi tune read like something an angsty teen wrote because his parents revoked car privileges after a bad report card; Jamar's triumphant back story (outliving an HIV-positive diagnosis) transforms them into a life-affirming anthem, and the intensity of his commitment to the song is simply electrifying.
