Do me a favor, take a gander at this gent and ask yourself: Could he possible have an amazing, soul voice?
The answer is absolutely 100% yes. This is Josh Kaufman. This guy packs a huge punch. He has one of the best voices that I have heard in a VERY long time. Tonight he showcased the soul filled side of his voice. While I was disappointed that he was not picked by his coach, I am very excited that Kaufman was stolen immediately by (you guessed it) Team Usher! I know I’ve said this a million times, but for real… Team Usher is a force to be reckoned with this season. This season’s winner of “The Voice” will be coming from Team Usher. I can feel it.
Anyways, back to Josh Kaufman. If you missed his performance of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” tonight — do yourself a favor and watch this right now.
After you picked your jaw off the ground, I’m sure you also asked yourself these questions:
1.) How does that voice come out of that fellow?
2. ) Why in the world would Adam not pick him?
3.) How precious is he?
You didn’t ask yourself #3? Psh. You did. Admit it. I’m not the only one out there that was very impressed with Josh Kaufman tonight. Social media was lighting up with praise for Josh.

While I think that Adam made a big error tonight, I think Josh Kaufman is just one more reason why Team Usher has major potential to totally upset the competition this season. Not only does Josh have an amazing voice, but he is a family man and I think that America is totally in love with that. He is a 38 year old husband and father who also is a struggling musician. He is trying one last time to make a name for himself in music while he tutors high school students. Yikes, come on people. Don’t send him back to the torture that must be tutoring high school students to pass standardize tests. I’m sure he is great at what he does, but Kaufman wants to be, “The Voice” (not “The Tutor”). Are you rallying behind Josh Kaufman?
In case you need any more convincing, I am going to leave you with Josh Kaufman’s audition song choice. This version is better than the original in my opinion. You’re welcome for getting it stuck in your head too!
