Indie pop singer Kat Hammock of Team Blake Shelton challenged herself this week on “The Voice” by taking on Shania Twain‘s classic anthem “You’re Still the One.” This 19-year-old California artist with the angelic voice revealed she was originally discovered by “Voice” producers thanks to her YouTube cover songs, and now she’s made it all the way to the Top 10 performance show. Do you think Kat will advance to next week’s Top 8? Watch “The Voice” video above and then make your predictions before Tuesday’s results show.
“I’m running out of compliments for you at this point,” Blake told Kat, aka “sis,” when it was his turn to critique her soothing performance. “That has got to be now my new favorite performance from you. It’s like if the angel that people put on top of their Christmas tree could bust out into a song, that’s what it would sound like right there, literally.”
The other “Voice” coaches were also on board the Kat train, with Gwen Stefani proclaiming her to be the “most original person on this show right now.” Ouch — don’t tell Gwen’s artists Rose Short and Joana Martinez! John Legend essentially agreed with her, adding, “I love the fact that every time you do a song you make it your own.”
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the performance: “This week Blake and Kat Hammock chose ‘You’re Still the One’ by Shania Twain for her because it’s an innocent love song that allows her to just show off her one of a kind voice. Sure enough Kat delivered a very tender and sweet rendition of the song while maintaining the country spirit of the song. At points her voice did seem a bit strained, but I think that’s just a continued struggle with getting her nerves under control.”
