The Voice 2014 Season 6 aired its fifth day of Blind Auditions on March 10, and we have to say the competition is really starting to get intense. Last night, coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Usher and Shakira became especially selective as they are down to the wire and have only a few slots to fill on their teams. A lot of great talent graced the stage, but of the 12 contestants that made it, only a few stood above the pack.
Rocker Kat Perkins really caught our attention, with her rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman,” While Jake Barker’s cover of “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars had us in disbelief that Jake had never performed live before.
Eclectic jazz-soul singer Ddendyl’s bluesy rendition of “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King left us wondering what other talents she has and Alaska & Madi’s duet to “Barton Hollow” by The Civil Wars blew us away with their soft and soothing harmonies.
And while there was a four-person montage (how we hate those), we still think that of all the 12 contestants, the best performance of the night would have to go to 38-year-old dad, Josh Kaufman for his performance of “One More Try” by George Michael.
Do we have a soft spot for ‘80s songs? Sure we do, but Josh not only made the song fresh again, he sang it every bit as good as George Michael, while making it his own and proving to us (as well as himself) that he should stick with his musical aspirations.
