Nick Jonas is being aggressive in his pursuit of a winning contestant during The Voice Season 18, and he's willing to go to any length to pull singers over to his team. This may even include adopting a competitor into his family tree, which is a cute offer he sort of threw one contestant's way after hearing his impressive performance.
Jacob Miller's rendition of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin," caught the ear of three of the four coaches, and Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and Nick Jonas wasted no time in pitching why the singer-songwriter should join their team. Jonas went a little harder than the other two in his pitch and mentioned that, regardless of how The Voice goes, he would be interested in getting Miller in a studio with his brothers and possibly collaborating with them. Hear the performance, and Jonas' impressive offer not long after hearing what Miller can do, below.
Nick Jonas offered Jacob Miller an amazing opportunity, regardless of how he does on The Voice, so it isn't surprising that Jonas ended up snatching the contestant up for his team. Time will tell if Jonas is serious about actually collaborating with Miller in the future, but for now, the duo are going to focus on winning The Voice. Could Miller be that magical contestant that ends up taking Season 18 by storm?
It feels possible, given that the folk singer doesn't have a ton of competitors that sound like him in Season 18 so far. With that said, Jacob Miller may be thinking just a little less about the next stage of the competition, and more about what Nick Jonas first told him before he selected him as a coach. If the "Jealous," singer thought Miller was going to just forget that vague promise to potentially be on a Jonas Brothers album, he's sorely mistaken.
You gotta respect the hustle, and Jacob Miller has been hustling in the music game and releasing content for quite a while. The musician has a total of five albums on iTunes, one of which is a solo album called This New Home. The other four came from a band he formed prior to breaking out on his own, Jacob Miller and the Bridge City Crooners. He's still a fresh face in terms of song-writing and performing, but he's illustrated his talents many times, so it's not too crazy to think Nick Jonas is serious about sitting down with him in the studio.
A polished singer-songwriter with original songs and a distinct style is now on The Voice. It's a situation similar to what American Idol saw in Season 17 with Alejandro Aranda, and his runner-up status proved that contestants can go very far in these competitions without singing the classic hit songs. I'd love to see Miller prove the same thing on The Voice, but he'll have his work cut out for him with the other people who have advanced so far.
The Voice airs on NBC Mondays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for the latest happening in the competition, and for the latest news happening in television and movies.
