John Legend chooses Camila Cabello’s four-chair singer


Camila Cabello proves herself his track record on “The Voice” is more than beginner’s luck.

The singing competition’s new coach won over 22-year-old medical student Andrew Igbokidi in the third round of blind auditions on Monday night. Igbokidi’s haunting cover of Billie Eilish’s ballad “When the Party’s Over” floored the judges, earning her a four-chair turn and standing ovations from Cabello and Gwen Stefani.

Cabello cut to the chase, telling Igbokidi she “badly” wanted the Nigerian American singer on her team.

“I feel vulnerable right now because I really, really believe in you,” Cabello told Igbokidi. “I feel like I could help polish your performance. I’ve been on a singing competition show before, and it’s an environment where you can feel a lot of pressure, where there are nerves.

Despite enthusiastic introductions from coaches Stefani, John Legend and Blake Shelton, Igbokidi opted to join Team Camila.

“You can’t beat her,” Shelton said of Cabello afterwards. “John was able to talk to (Igbokidi) about artists and music that I had never heard of, and the next thing you know he chose Camila.”

Here’s what else happened during Monday’s episode.
