‘The Voice’: See Pryor Baird’s Gritty Cover of Bob Seger’s ‘Night Moves’

Baird’s fellow Team Blake Shelton member Spensha Baker tries out Little Big Town’s “Better Man” in Top 11 round

In the first night of Top 11 live performances on The Voice, two of Blake Shelton’s team members stood out in an episode that had contestants singing viewer-selected songs. First up was Pryor Baird, who offered his rendition of Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band’s “Night Moves.”

Baird, who previously gave his coach a run for his money on the team’s cover of Sam & Dave’s “I Thank You,” took a relaxed approach to Seger’s 1976 hit and showed that his husky, emotive vocals were a natural match for the soulful tune. “I felt it, I felt the softer side of Pryor. I’m telling you, man, you have so much momentum building right now on this show. It’s undeniable,” said Shelton following the performance.

And despite a shaky start, fellow Team Blake member Spensha Baker delivered another of the night’s noteworthy performances. Taking on Little Big Town’s Taylor Swift-penned hit “Better Man,” the country hopeful showed off her vocal range and confidence on the stage.

The Voice returns tonight, Tuesday, May 1st on NBC.
