With the constant barrage of shit we’re faced with on a daily, constantly reminded how much people suck, it’s always great when we get a little content that just makes us feel good. This video, more of a surprise to me than I can say, happens to be one of those. From beginning to end, everything about this video made me smile.
Contestant, Brooke Simpson, took to the stage of The Voice to belt out Demi Lovato’s power ballad, ‘Stone Cold.’ Now, anyone who has seen Demi rock that performance knows that it’s no easy feat, and you need serious chops to do it justice. However, Brooke proved that she was up to the task and she did an amazing job.
So, not only were the song choice and performance incredible, so was the reaction and subsequent banter of the judges. Now, despite American Idol’s quality decline in more recent years, and The Voice’s steady ratings hold, here’s something that most people seem not to want to admit: The Voice has not produced a fraction of the stars that American Idol has… if any at all. It’s great when a previously unknown contestant goes on to win the finale, but how many have actually gone on to achieve solid success after their win? I’ll wait…
Nevertheless, where The Voice has American Idol beat is the charisma, banter and connection of the celebrity judges and this is as evident as ever in this video. It’s so great to see this household-name judges put their hearts into singing the praises of these unknown contestants because they genuinely see their talent.
Seriously, watch this video and smile!
ps, from now on, I’m gonna start walking around with a little notepad just so that I can toss it at someone in incredulity.
