Pharrell Williams took a knee and declared "that's what that flag is for. Freedom of speech."
Stevie Wonder also joined the band at the end of the first night in a surprise appearance.
The Voice is premiering tonight and there may be a local boy on the broadcast.
We saw a tweet from Former NFL Player Esera Tuaolo. It said "Aloha! 4 more days till The Voice premier! Can't wait till you all see me perform."
Tuaolo played nine years for five different teams, was known as Mr. Aloha; grew up in Waimanalo and recorded the last tackle of football legend John Elway.
The Voice is on KHNL tonight.
