While everyone is gushing over The X-Factor auditions (because well, they’re awesome) that other show over at NBC called The Voice is also having some “WTF that’s awesome” moments.
Take Melanie Martinez, the quirky gap-toothed contestant who auditioned with Britney Spears “Toxic.” I actually love the original version — it’s such a guilty pleasure. But Martinez turns the dance song into a mellow, acoustic track that I would totally listen to on a chill evening. Her voice has an interesting shakiness and she’s a double hitter since she also played the guitar and banged a tambourine with her feet.
Everyone turned their chair around except Christina Aguilera. I wonder if she was turned off by the choice of song rather than her soft, songbird voice.
