Koryn Hawthorne “Girl On Fire” The Voice Video: “Breakout” Singer Gets Standing Ovation!
Koryn Hawthorne proved she’s a “Girl On Fire” on “The Voice” on Monday, thanks to a powerful cover of the empowering Alicia Keys anthem that closed the show in tremendous fashion. Check out the video below!
The track was a fitting choice for the contestant, who, as Gossip Cop has reported, has been on a hot streak since narrowly making it into the Top 12 earlier this month. This week, Hawthorne received some “girl perspective” from Gwen Stefani, who, after serving as a coach on the last two seasons, returned this week to help mentor Pharrell’s contestants. The aspiring star ended up being the last to take the stage, and, with a slower pace than Keys’ official version of the song, Hawthorne’s performance gave chills.
After a standing ovation from all the coaches, Adam Levine told the singer, “You are the dream that is this show. What I mean by that is, you came on the show, 17 [years old], you went through it and then you had all of these amazing breakout moments later with the live shows. And now I see you with the background singers and this incredible vibe on stage and all I see [is] this grown woman singing the song, and I’m like, wow, the evolution of that you have made on this show, I would say above all other artists on the show has been the biggest leap. You came in here a girl and now you’re a grown-ass woman.”
Christina Aguilera agreed, saying, “There’s definitely something to be said about what Adam said. It’s the point of the competition where people either make it or break it because they are bothered by the pressure or they can thrive on it. And you are thriving a 100,000 percent.” And a proud Pharrell said, “You are an inspirational singer… I think this whole entire room and everyone across the room is inspired.” Watch below!
