One of the major frontrunners to win “The Voice” this season is former child star Alisan Porter. What did you think of her performance on Monday of the song “Desperado” (watch above)? Give your letter grade A-F in our new poll below.
Porter is a Connecticut native and childhood actress who starred in the films “Curly Sue” and “Parenthood.” Her coach for this 10th season of the NBC reality program is pop sensation Christina Aguilera, who has never mentored a winning artist for this show before.
Her song choices so far this season have been “Blue Bayou” by Linda Ronstadt (blind audition), “California Dreamin'” by The Mamas and the Papas (battle round), “River” by Joni Mitchell (knockout round), “Cry Baby” by Janis Joplin (live round one), “Stone Cold” by Demi Lovato (top 12), “Stay With Me Baby” by Lorraine Ellison (top 11), “Let Him Fly” by Patty Griffin, “Cryin'” by Aerosmith, and “Desperado” by The Eagles.
Gold Derby contributing writer John Benutty wrote of her performance on Monday: “The reason Porter has been so wildly successful on the show is because she has consistently chosen songs that she connects to personally. That reinforces the journey she’s on as a mother and as someone in recovery. She’s a total package and that has never felt as right as in this performance. I loved it.”
And now it’s your chance to grade Porter. Give her an A, B, C, D or F for Monday’s performance.
