Filipino YouTube sensation—JR Aquino—rocked the new season of “The Voice” via his audition song “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars.
Aquino, a reject from American Idol season 4, made 3 coaches turned their seats on him namely Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Ceelo Green.
“You sound a lot like Bruno,” said Levine. “I think it’s a perfect fit my friend. I would love to have you on my team for sure, 100 percent.”
Despite Adam’s high praises, Aquino chose Cee Lo Green to be his coach. It’s interesting to note that Cee Lo was also the coach who handled Pinay Cheesa Laureta in Season 2.
