‘The Voice’ finale: Chris Kroeze shows Nashville potential with moving performance

Carson Daly said Chris Kroeze set a high bar in the kickoff to part one of “The Voice” finale Monday night.

But was it high enough for the country singer?

We’ll find out during the NBC singing competition’s season 15 finale Tuesday. But Kroeze certainly brought his A game with his final three performances — and has been blessed with a terrific original song.

Each of the four finalists Monday debuted an original song, including Kroeze’s ballad “Human” — where he wrestles with personal shortcomings and society’s impulsive condemnation — which was written by Ross Copperman and Ashley Gorley. 

“I would have wanted this song on my record,” Shelton told Kroeze, saying Copperman and Gorley were “arguably the hottest songwriters in Nashville.” It wasn’t hyperbole. Between them they’ve written or co-written 50 No. 1 country hits since 2005 for A-listers like Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Shelton.

Supported by a choir and blessed by smart, heartfelt lyrics, Kroeze showed with “Human” he has the ability to fit on country radio, even though previous performances suggested traditional country and Southern rock were his wheelhouse.
