There’s a ‘catfight’, apparently. But who’s trying to start it?
In one of the most cringe-worthy moments on this season (or possibly any season) of The Voice, a guy who looked like Jesus sang Celine Dion’s soaring Titanic ballad My Heart Will Go On.
Blake Galera Holliss walked out onto the stage last night and belted out his unique rendition of the iconic ballad – a song choice that seemed out of place amongst the Meghan Trainor, Drake and John Legend covers that dominated the stage in last night’s episode.
And it was a song choice that had the coaches disagreeing as soon as he dropped the last note.
The performance was a bust. None of the judges turned around. Awks. In what has become a welcome change to the format in this season, a looser, more spontaneous post-audition critique saw Delta Goodrem leaping onto the stage to re-enact a scene from Titanic with Blake, before calling him ‘my Jack’.
And then it got serious. Jessie J asked Blake why he chose that particular song. He mentioned it was the first song he ever performed live, which made Delta enthuse it’s her go-to karaoke song.
