This week of Battle Rounds on NBC’s The Voice featured an assortment of strong duet performances, but there was one performer in particular that delivered something special that earned her the title of being my performer of the week. The contestant in question is none other than Team Miley’s Addison Agen. Performing with Karli Webster, the two took on an incredible version of Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Want To Have Fun. You can check out the performance below
This performance was absolutely incredible. I just love when contestants try to be creative and switch up overdone songs and make them new again. It lets the viewers know that they are really thinking about the game, and shows potential for how they will play their cards in the live rounds. I’ve always argued that flipping songs is a risk worth taking, and the fact that Addison and Karli have the guts to go all out with a unique arraignment of a beloved song gives me high hopes for both of them moving forward.
Surprisingly, Addison actually lost the battle to Karli. For those who missed the episode, the story had a happy ending though with Addison being stolen by Adam Levine. I think they’ll work well together, and I’m looking forward to seeing what Addison has in store for us next. She’s one of my favorites this season along with Brooke Simpson and Chloe Kohanski.
Who do you think was the best performer this week? Do you think Addison has a shot of going deep into the competition? Let me know in the comments below.
