Rocking Foreigner's "Hot Blooded" did the trick for New Orleans singer Adam Pearce on NBC's "The Voice" Monday night.
The 31-year-old Bunkie native commanded the stage with his spot-on vocals, along with tossing his long, wavy strawberry blonde locks in true rocker style.
In the blind auditions, Pearce was able to coax judge/coaches Adam Levine and Miley Cyrus to turn their chairs around during his song.
"His voice is dope!" Cyrus told Levine, before they each made their case for Pearce to choose them as a coach.
"You were so wild and crazy, and so controlled and refined at the same time," Levine told the Crescent City singer.
Pearce reminded the Maroon 5 frontman that he had auditioned unsuccessfully for the show's Season 12 with his rendition of "A Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procol Harum.
At that time, Levine encouraged him to work on his pitch problems and return. Pearce quickly enrolled in vocal lessons, as well as continuing to sing gigs four or five times a week, a news release from NBC says.
"So I've been coaching you since last season," Levine chimed in.
Eventually, one Adam chose the other Adam, Pearce becoming the third singer with that moniker on this season. Adam Cunningham is currently on Team Blake (Shelton).
Members of Pearce's family were singing backstage along with the contestant during his tryout, while fans and fellow entertainers back home reached out on social media.
"Awesome Adam !!!!!!!!!!!!!" posted Zebra's Randy Jackson.
"The Voice" airs at 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
