Ben Allen showcased his traditional country vocals with a cover of Blake Shelton’s 2010 hit, “All About Tonight” during The Voice semi-finals on Monday evening (Dec. 7).
Prior to his performance, coach Gwen Stefani challenged Allen to step up his stage presence and that’s exactly what he did. Allen’s energetic rendition of “All About Tonight” had him working every inch of the stage and even had Stefani and fellow coach Kelly Clarkson on their feet dancing and singing along.
Shelton couldn’t help but smile as he watched on.
“I am jealous and blown away at the same time. I am jealous because you slayed that song and you sang it to my fiancée. I also kind of wanted to be you that whole time,” Shelton told him, adding, “Good job man.”
