Baltimore singer Davon Fleming made Jennifer Hudson throw her shoe in excitement during the blind auditions on "The Voice."
Baltimore singer Davon Fleming made quite an impression on the judges of "The Voice" on Monday night — so much so that he caused Jennifer Hudson to throw her shoe in excitement and later join him in an impromptu duet.
Fleming, who grew up in Park Heights, sang Amy Winehouse's "Me and Mr. Jones" during the blind auditions round of the NBC singing competition. All four judges quickly hit their buzzer to turn their chairs around, indicating that they wanted him on their team.
"You better sing, boy, you made me throw my shoe!" Hudson said after his performance.
"I've never seen this panel this speechless ever," she added.
Each coach made impassioned pitches to Fleming as to why he should pick their team. Hudson even joined him on stage for a duet of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You."
Ultimately, Team Jennifer won Fleming over.
The 25-year-old said his inspiration and love of singing comes from his mother, Dorothy, who was backstage to cheer him on. While growing up in Baltimore, singing in church was an outlet, Fleming said.
