When Christian Porter took to The Voice Season 4 stage in the sneak peek clip that was released today, we were blown away by his acoustic arrangement of LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It.”
The performance did earn him a three-chair turn, after all. Blake Shelton, Usher, and Shakira all pressed their buttons for the artist. We’re not sure which team he picks, but his talent is undeniable.
But upon further reflection, we recalled an X Factor UK performance from Series 9 winner James Arthur. He rocked the same sultry version of the LMFAO hit during the third week of live shows. Granted, James’s version featured grinding backup dancers clad in cheetah-print ensembles, but both singers have a great sound.
Coincidentally, James was accused of plagiarizing the arrangement from YouTube artist only1Noah. Can’t we all just agree that it’s a genius version of the club tune? James admitted to playing off the YouTube singer’s rendition, and eventually went on to win the entire competition.
We don’t know how far Christian will make it on The Voice, but how does his rendition stack up against James’s? Tell us your thoughts below!
