Meghan Linsey “Tennessee Whiskey” And “I’m Not The Only One” The Voice Videos
Meghan Linsey took a big step towards the finals on Monday’s “The Voice” with what Blake Shelton said was her “most important” performance to date. Check out the videos below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, Linsey was originally on Team Pharrell. Even though she had a personal connection with Shelton, having previously opened for him, the country superstar’s team was full by the time of her blind audition. Lucky for him, he was able to steal her later in the season, and now she’s his only remaining artist in season 8.
On tonight’s show, Linsey gave it her all in hopes of making next week’s finale. For the first round, the Top 5 singer performed “I’m Not The Only One” by Sam Smith, an interesting choice after fellow contestant India Carney did a different Smith track last week. Shelton explained he gave it to her because she can “pour herself into it emotionally,” the “perfect song” to show her heart and soul.
Pharrell said afterwards, “That was a great performance… I think that you just reminded everybody in the world that there’s so many other sounds, so many other characters, so many other genres of music that live in Nashville.” Adam Levine told Linsey, “You’ve just been growing consistently on this show… Every performance seems like it’s your last in your mind.”
In the second round, Shelton and Pharrell gave Linsey a standing ovation for “Tennessese Whiskey,” her dedication to Nashville. “Yes! Yes!” her coach screamed, and continued to even as Christina Aguilera commended her, saying, “You never cease to amaze me with your vocals when you come out here. You’re a showstopper.”
Shelton went on to tell the aspiring star, “I can’t even contain myself right now because I know what just happened. That was so special. You just engaged all the country music fans out there across the country, and you’ve already engaged all the new fans you’ve made through your journey so far. That is by far your most important performance on this show so far.” Watch both videos below. Do you think Linsey will be voted into the finale?
