Adriana Louise Shines on ‘The Voice’ with Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’
On tonight’s episode of ‘The Voice’ (Nov. 7), Adriana Louise represented Team Christina during the live playoffs with a passionate rendition of Katy Perry’s ‘Firework.’ And boy, did she shine brightly!
The Brooklyn, N.Y. native showed star quality from the very beginning – in fact, all four of the judges turned their chairs for her at her blind audition. Her performance during the live playoffs was quite a hit as well, earning praise not only from Aguilera, but from coaches of the opposing teams.
Cee Lo Green considered her to be strong competition, commenting that she has a “very beautiful voice” and is a “very beautiful person.” Blake Shelton was also intimidated by her stage presence. “You are taking big steps and gawd dang it, I don’t like it,” he said.
“It’s a total b—- to sing that song, so honestly, incredible job,” Adam Levine chimed in emphatically. Aguilera was similarly impressed by Louise’s delivery of the song. “I think that what America sees, and what they don’t know, is how sweet and genuine you are,” she said. She went on to agree with Levine, assenting that the song was a particularly challenging one to take on in terms of long notes and range.
“You just have the most amazing energy and I really want America to grow with you and back you up, because … you’re a total star,” Aguilera remarked.
She’s clearly won over the judges, but does she have what it takes to be a big time star? It’s up to viewers to decide.
