On April 28, Team Shakira powerhouse Tess Boyer gave a rousing performance of “Ain’t It Fun” by Paramore.Coming out of being in the bottom three last week, Tess decided to take a different approach with her music choice, and just so happened to pick a rock ballad written by music producer Busbee, who Shakira invited to mentor her team. During rehearsals, Tess was encouraged to have fun with the song and show a bit of energy on stage.
Desperate to not end in the bottom three, Tess took the voice stage with the pop rock song, belting notes and strutting across the stage with confidence. Adam Levine told Tess that she should be proud of her performance, saying that it was fun, confident, and done with much skill, finally showing a side of her voice he longed to hear. Blake Shelton said he’d challenge anyone to find any point of the song that wasn’t pitch perfect, saying that she is always able to hit every single note.
Usher said that concurred with Blake, adding that Tess appeared to be more comfortable with her space. Shakira called Tess’s performance “perfect” filled with sass and confidence. Shak added that Tess’s unique “sexy” tone was great and that she’s always amazed when she hears her sing.
