Zach Seabaugh Wins 'The Voice' Battle Round On Season 9 & The Teen Has The Ability To Go Far
Once again, a reality TV competition show is proving age is nothing but a number. Sixteen-year-old Zach Seabaugh stunned The Voice judges on Monday with his Battle Round performance, securing the victory and moving on in the game. The country singer was up against fellow Team Blake member Tyler Dickerson, and the two performed "I'm Gonna Be Somebody" by Travis Tritt. Both put up a valiant effort, but at the end of the day the judges preferred Zach's rendition. Coach Blake Shelton was disappointed in Tyler's lack of passion, and, at the end of the day, Zach seemed to want it more. "I'm really happy for you," Blake told the young singer. "I'm proud of you."
It's exciting to see such a young person advance in the competition, especially when it's someone like Zach. The 16-year-old is turning stereotypes on their heads, choosing singing over football in a move that makes him basically a real life Finn Hudson from Glee. And, his move from the field to the stage was clearly worth it because he's killing it. From his Blind Audition of “Take Your Time” by Sam Hunt, to his Travis Tritt rendition, Zach has the judges and the audience in the palm of his hands, and he's not taking it for granted. If he keeps this up, he'll definitely go far in the competition.
