Katie Kadan The Voice Top 8
Season 17 of “The Voice” is almost over, and it’s time for the Top 8 performance show on Monday. The Top 8 artists perform in front of coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani on Monday, December 9, 2019, with the results following on Tuesday, December 10, 2019.
She is the most magical mystical beautiful voice on the planet we see people comparing her to people like Aretha Franklin and all the others that they compare her to….. but she is her own there is no one like her , she is better than all of them…. she quite possibly the best female voice to ever hit this fuckinh planet
Team John Legend – I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith – THIS SONG REALLY C’MON. The most overdone song on singing show. John promised fans a ballad, and this is it. Oh well. At least it’s not “Hallelujah.” – Katie grew up in a Pentecostal church. She was 30 before she took the stage for real. John made sure songwriter Diane Warren will be watching tonight. Katie pushes her way through the song’s treacly sentiment. I am unmoved. Pro tip: Singing loud doesn’t improve this song. Her original should have been her last song. The crowd won’t stop yelling. Blake calls her “unbelievable” and “there’s nothing else to say.” John is honored to work with her. “You’ve just been incredible every single time…magical working with you.”
Katie Kadan – Team John Legend – All Better by Katie Kadan (written by Andrew Wells, Katie Pearlman & Audra Mae Butts ) – Katie is excited to be recording at Capitol studios. The songwriters have worked for Kelly and Christina Aguilera in the past. Katie says The Voice experience has given her “more confidence.” This song is a good fit for Katie. It’s the best original song so far, by SEVERAL MILES. Katie is delivering a fierce, sexy, gutsy performance. It’s one of her best of the season. Kelly says, “OMG, you better go with that sexy vibe!” John says, “You sell that song so beautifully…you are all better!”
Merry Christmas Baby by Otis Redding – I didn’t know what to expect from a duet between these two. Their musical styles are very different. But this is pretty great! John steps aside, allowing Katie to do her thing. They do a fun little dance during the instrumental break – John performed the song on tour last year.
Katie Kadan – Team John Legend – Lady Marmalade by Labelle – If Katie makes the finale, she’ll sing a ballad, he says. John suggests a “breakdown” verse allowing Katie to be “sassy and intimate.” He demonstrates by beat boxing! Katie says she’s learned more on The Voice than she has in eight years of gigging. I don’t know about this song choice. She’s doing the song justice, but it’s a predictable choice. She should have performed a ballad THIS week. Although, the bridge allows her to add original riffs. Still, I love her confidence and swagger. She’s an incredible performer. Kelly says she’s “fun to watch.” It’s Gwen’s favorite “Katie performance.” She loves Katie’s recognizable style. John calls her a superstar. “We don’t deserve you, Katie,” he says. “You own every performance…you already deserve awards.. – STREAM
