Take notes, future contestants! On Friday, February 24, “The Voice” coaches Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani released a video of the four of them performing a stripped down acoustic cover of TLC’s 1994 hit “Waterfalls” (watch the group performance above). Four artists of such dissimilar backgrounds harmonizing on one of the 1990s most iconic songs — a contestant on a single competition could learn a thing or two.
Season 12 of “The Voice” premieres on NBC on Monday, February 27, with its first “Blind Auditions” episode and will follow that up with two more installments on Tuesday and Thursday. Country singer Shelton and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine have participated as coaches for every season of the series thus far, while 15-time Grammy winner Keys takes part for the second season in a row. Stefani is back for her third season; she previously coached seasons seven and nine.
Last fall Shelton coached the season 11 champ, Sundance Head, and is the winningest coach in the series’ history with five titles. Levine is next with three “Voice” victories, having last prevailed in season nine with contestant Jordan Smith. Keys coached finalist We McDonald last season and this time hopes to improve on that with her first win. Stefani is also aiming for her first victory; she previously coached finalist Jeffery Austin in season nine.
