If music be the food of love then, consider us head over heels after that veritable banquet of awesomeness. WHAT. A. SHOW.
Week two of the live shows had standing ovations, heated discussions and a knock-knock joke. Most importantly, it had ten fresher-than-fresh performances as Teams Danny and Jessie took to the stage and sung live, loud, and like they’ve never sung before.
Toni Warne opened the show with roof-shattering performance that was all zoom and turbo boom. Singing ‘Proud Mary’, we’d say she made Mary and her coach Jessie very proud indeed…
Max Milner treated us to a bit of percussive guitar and impressed with his ear-melting voice, singing ‘Free Fallin’. Jessie said it made her heart content. Aw.
Ruth-Ann St.Luce made all sorts of shapes with her mouth (good tip, Jessie) and surrounded by flickering candles as she sung ‘Promise This’. FYI candles ain’t got not nothing on this girl – she lit up that stage with her multi-octave skills.
Surrounded by a limber throng of dancers, Hannah Berney switched things up and turned ‘Cry Me A River’ into a rousing, rocky concoction fit for a queen. It was so good it could reduce you to tears.
Vince Kidd’s vest was tie-die for and his voice was smoother than peanut butter (unless you have crunchy peanut butter). Singing ‘Always On My Mind’ he even got the nod from Tom Jones, who knew Elvis by the way.
Aleks Josh looked very dapper singing a bit of swing with ‘Dream A Little Dream Of Me’. It was dreamy. That was an obvious joke, but better than will.i.am’s knock-knock attempts…
Cassius Henry was in the hood (sorry), as he stepped out of his R&B comfort zone and gave a blissful rendition of ‘Paradise’ NOT ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’.
David Julien’s vocals were as tight as his curls and his version of ‘Sweet Disposition’ made will.i.am say: “meulhsuagefuaj”. Exactly.
Becky Hill’s impressed the coaches and crowd with ‘Good Luck’. She climbed the stairs, and her voice climbed the scales for an outstanding performance.
Bo Bruce closed the show singing ‘Running Up That Hill’ and quite beautifully, too. It was enchanting, captivating and mesmerising and had all the coaches on their feet.
In our opinion it was a superb show. But it’s not all about us, we want YOUR opinions. So let us know, how did you think the artists coped with performing live?
Catch you later!
