'The Voice' fall 2013 top 6: James Wolpert 'Fell in Love With a Girl' for dad

"The Voice" fall 2013 season resumed Dec. 2 on NBC as the last six contestants standing sang once again for America's votes. One of the evening's most intriguing performances belonged to indie rocker James Wolpert, who put his own distinctive spin on his own song choice, The White Stripes' "Fell in Love With a Girl."

After dedicating his performance to his dad, who Wolpert said gave him "the strength and confidence" to chase his dreams, he hit the stage with his guitar in hand. What followed was a truly unique but musically pleasing guy-and-guitar version of the tune. Although he muffed the words in the middle, he hid it well, and showed off his stellar vocal ability.

His coach, Maroon 5 frontman and People's reigning sexiest man alive Adam Levine, noted the stumble, but said it didn't matter to him. He praised Wolpert for the strong "simplicity" of his voice, and reminded viewers that it's "not all about the big, bombastic notes all the time." The only other coach who commented on the performance, country music star Blake Shelton, said he didn't notice the screw-up, and called Wolpert's overall sound "really good."

To see if Wolpert advances to the top five or finds his competition journey cut short, watch "The Voice" fall 2013 top six results show Dec. 3 on NBC.
