The Voice Season 3 Sneak Peek: Melanie Martinez Gives Britney Spears’s “Toxic” a Folky Remix (VIDEO)
Historically, Britney Spears songs have done well for Voice contestants. In Season 2, Team Adam finalist Tony Lucca tore down his “one-dimensional” barriers with his rock version of “...Baby One More Time,” and this season, a new contestant is using the new X Factor judge for her own benefit.
In this new Season 3 clip, 17-year-old Melanie Martinez performs Brit’s hit “Toxic” while strumming the acoustic guitar and playing the tambourine with her foot! Her soft, folky sound inspired coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Cee Lo Green to turn around almost immediately.
We can only assume that Xtina passed due to the tense nature of her relationship with Ms. Spears, because Melanie’s sound is simply gorgeous.
No news yet on who this musician picks, but we bet NBC will tell us if you tune in tonight at 8 p.m. ET for the second week of blind auditions!
