St. Petersburg's Jake Barker advances to the playoffs on 'The Voice'

Bartender and Justin Timberlake doppelganger Jake Barker has made it past the Battle Rounds on The Voice and made it to the playoffs. The St. Petersburg native, 28, was stolen by Adam Levine after Usher let Barker go from his team, and he competed for Team Adam last night.

Adam paired Barker with Brittnee Camelle, and they boldly chose to sing one of Usher's songs, Climax. The falsetto-filled jam ended up working in Barker's favor, showing off his ability to sing really high and still sound pretty good. The Timberlake-ness was out in full force.

So now Barker heads to the playoffs, which start next week with the top 20 artists. If he makes it through that round, he'll join the 12 remaining singers in the live shows. Watch Barker's Battle Round performance below.
