Shalyah Fearing “Listen” “The Voice” Video: Watch Live Playoffs Performance!
Shaylah Fearing took on none other than Beyonce for her Live Playoffs performance on Tuesday’s “The Voice.” Check out the video below!
Fearing entered her first live performance of the NBC music competition in an unique situation. During the Battles, she was stolen from Christina Aguilera by Pharrell. And then during the Knockouts, he shocked everyone by letting Adam Levine in turn steal her from him.
So this was not only Fearing’s first live performance, but also her first time taking the stage as a member of Team Adam, the third group she’s been in. As if all that didn’t raise the stakes high enough, the teen opted to cover the superstar known as Beyonce.
And she pulled it off! After absolutely slaying “Listen,” the 16-year-old received a standing ovation from the entire panel. Levine and Pharrell were actually on their feet long before the performance was over.
Once the loud applause finally died down, Blake Shelton said Fearing “just became the freakin’ frontrunner of the show.” Aguilera praised her former artist’s working relationship with Levine, and noted, “Tonight, we needed your excitement, so thank you!” Pharrell told Fearing, “I am honored to be part of your journey for the little tenure I was.”
He added, “From the saints to the secular, please vote for this girl right here.” Then, after more cheers, Levine admitted he “barely knows” the young singer, but said, “We feel the message you’re trying to convey.” Watch below!
