Stephanie Rice “Every Breath You Take” ‘The Voice’ Video – Watch Live Playoffs Performance
Stephanie Rice sang “Every Breath You Take” for the Live Playoffs on “The Voice” on Monday. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the aspiring star was originally on Gwen Stefani’s team for the Blind Auditions and Battles. But after losing her Knockouts showdown to Troy Ramey, Alicia Keys used her only steal to save Rice from elimination. Now she’s getting a shot at redemption on the Live Playoffs, during which Keys’ team had to be narrowed from five to three.
Rice covered the classic Sting ballad for this round, which marked the first live episode of season 12. She created the arrangement herself, and chose to play the piano for her moving rendition. “The way you’ve been interpreting sounds is really unique,” Keys told her during rehearsal.
Following the emotional performance, which was the very last of the night’s 12 performances, Keys gave a standing ovation. Rice’s former coach Stefani said, “Honestly, I’ve not stopped thinking about you… You have this great, amazing angel to work with now.” And Keys herself expressed, “Every time you perform, you transport me… That’s what an artist does, and you were a pure, beautiful artist on this stage tonight, authentically.”
At the end of the show, Keys awarded Rice a spot in next week’s Top 12. Check out the video below!
