The Voice: Nakia is The Exception

Hollyscoop has obtained exclusive footage of the hottest act from tonight’s “The Voice”” show--Nakia.

This contestant had some “balls” as Christina Aguilera put it to sing Cee Lo’s hit "Forget You".

During his performance, Cee Lo was smiling and was the first judge to press the buzzer. Blake Shelton was second and pleaded to have Nakia join his team.

"You look nothing like I expected…those are the things to me make an artist, to me that are unique about them…I feel like everyone of us are unique and had to beat some odds, you’re a big old white guys seeing a Cee Lo song, that’s why you’re unique," Blake told Nakia.

Cee Lo stated, “Well I had to turn around to see who this brave individual was, of course you have great taste in music…you’re wearing my colors, red and black.”

“You kind of remind me of myself, I think you can be a exception to the rule,” said Cee Lo.

With talent like Nakia, it's no wonder 'The Voice' attracted more than 11.8 million viewers last week. Who will Nakia pick? Tune in tonight 9/8 central to find out.
