Nailing Lewis Capaldi's "Before You Go,” Carter Rubin, a 14-year-old Long Islander, impressed judges on NBC’s talent show, “The Voice,” the Emmy Award-winning musical competition series.


Musical coaches, Gwen Stefani and John Legend, ended up in a bit of a battle over Rubin.


Legend pitched himself to Rubin.


“I turned for you very early on,” he said. “Your voice sounded polished. You sounded strong. Your voice has control, which  a lot of people your age wouldn’t have.”


He added that Rubin’s voice shimmered.


Stefani told Rubin she could be like a mom to him because she also has a 14-year-old-son.


“I loved your voice. When you got into your full voice the tone was so beautiful it was so shocking to me,” Stefania said.
