The highest honor a singer on The Voice can receive is for all four judges to turn around. On the latest episode of The Voice, Brittany Bree receives that honor. Bree’s performance has been teed up by the show, as NBC released an early clip of her. Does this mean she’s a frontrunner?
Initially, the battling judge duo ofJohn Legend and Ariana Grande turned around when Bree began to sing her cover of The Weeknd’s “Call Out My Name,” but by the time Bree showed off her range, judge Kelly Clarkson turned around followed by Blake Shelton.
“You are unbelievable. I love your voice,” Grande told Bree after her performance. “I really enjoy your tone. I loved your runs. The fullness of it, the soul, the texture, I think intention is really important and every choice you made added so much emotional value and I think that’s really important in a performer. I would love to be your coach, I would love to hold your hand through this and I would love for you to pick me. I love you!”
Legend added, “That voice just grabs us and the energy just explodes from the stage. Did you grow up singing in the church?”
His observation was correct as Bree confirmed she in fact did sing in church before Legend pitched to be her coach.
“I think you can go so far, and I would love for you to do it on Team Legend,“ Legend states.
Not to be outdone, Shelton made his pitch, stating, “Kelly grew up in Texas and she abandoned her home state and her family. John grew up singing in the church. He’s probably not been in a church now in the last 30-plus years, walked away from it. Ariana, she could be the greatest coach we’ve ever seen on The Voice. But, she could be the worst coach that we’ve ever seen on The Voice. Nobody knows yet.”
Bree ended up going with Legend. Watch her performance below:
