‘The Voice’ Season 9 Coaches: Which Team Pharrell Contestant Believes His Coach Is An ‘Incredible’ Man? [VIDEO]
Pharrell Williams hasn't been a coach on The Voice for as long as Blake Shelton or Adam Levine, but he definitely makes an impact on the contestants he is coaching, as if he has been on the series since its inception.
Team Pharrell is officially down one since the Top 12 was announced; Mark Hood unfortunately couldn't get enough votes during the Instant Save performances Tuesday night, leading to his elimination.
The Voice YouTube channel released Hood's exit video, which can be watched below, in which the Chicago native praises his coach wholeheartedly.
"I made a new friend in Pharrell," Hood said through tears that came from his time on the reality singing competition being cut short.
"I just can't believe he believes in me the way he does," Hood added, explaining, "We just got so close."
Footage of the coach and contestant throughout the competition played, and Pharrell revealed to Hood that his "greatest asset" is his heart - Hood has given incredibly passionate performances on the show.
"He's such a regular person," Hood also revealed about Pharrell, even though the coach is a major deal in the music industry. Pharrell never comes off as high and mighty.
"He's such a human. We can just sit and talk," Hood shared of his time spent with Pharrell, even admitting that in passing Pharrell always made it a point to stop and briefly chat.
"That man is incredible! I'm so honored to know him now," Hood beamed, adding, "And I'm so grateful and so humbled."
Hood definitely seems to have bonded with Pharrell; it definitely seems like a possibility that despite his elimination they will work together in the future.
Plus, Pharrell is the reason Hood is walking away from the competition with more confidence in himself as a performer.
"I really learned to not doubt myself," Hood dished in the video, explaining, "Pharrell was really on me about doubt and how my talent does mean something and that I do have a marque."
The Voice will air on NBC Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
