The Performance From Jim Ranger

During the November 30 episode of NBC’s The Voice, Ranger performed during the Top 17 playoffs. Ranger took the stage with colorful lights on the big screen in the background. It was just him and his guitar that won over the virtual audience. Ranger’s performance advanced him into the next episode for the Top 9 semi-finals.

“Dude, you are unbelievably talented,” his coach, Blake Shelton, told him and the crowd. “You deserve to be on this stage. I believe in my heart you are going to be in the finale. Let’s go win this thing!”

“Wow! Tonight was amazing and soooo intense,” he wrote on Instagram after his performance. “Thank you to everyone that voted for me. See y’all tomorrow night!! #TeamBlake
