Do you have a favorite show that you watch on television?
Though it’s not unusual for us to watch a little television at the end of the day to unwind a little, our tastes can definitely differ significantly. For some of us, sitting down in front of an intense legal show is enough of a release for us to relax.
On the other hand, many people like to watch reality competition shows—things like American Idol. Still, of all the many shows out there of this kind, The Voice has to be one of the most inventive and interesting.
And the performance we’re talking about today illustrates that perfectly.
Though we’re all used to the American version of the show, the truth is that it’s an international franchise with many offshoots and variations.
The show actually started in Holland before expanding around the world, into the many different versions that exist today.
As each country has its own version, so does the United Kingdom with The Voice UK. For anyone who hasn’t watched the show before, it typically begins with several rounds of “blind auditions” where contestants appear before judges who have their backs turned. If they like what they hear, they can buzz in and compete to get those singers on their team.
But once those rounds are over, things get even more interesting.
After a while, each team’s contestants start competing with one another head-to-head.
That was the case in this performance from the show’s 2018 season. The “Battle” in this video was between singers Donel Mangena and Rhianna Abrey, both of whom were on Judge Jennifer Hudson’s team.
The song they were singing was “Rain” by The Script. At the beginning, Abrey starts the song off with a smoky and seductive tone. Before long, Mangena does his part and brings a little more lightness to it.
Though both singers are great, things go to the next level in the chorus.
Although it’s all about the singing, Mangena takes the energy up a notch by singing it as loud as he can!
Before long, all the judges and the audience are smiling along—and Hudson is faced with the impossible decision of choosing between the two of them.
Still, Abrey also starts singing her heart out in response to the dance moves, moving her voice up and down as deftly as she can. The competition between the two singers has the audience members up on their feet before long.
By the end it’s a full-on party—and when it’s over, Hudson even asks them to sing it again!
Since the video was posted, it has earned some 13 million views on YouTube.
Despite what happened on the show and the ultimate results, performances like this one show why The Voice remains so interesting and engaging show after show.
Though there are plenty of talented people and the initial auditions are suspenseful in themselves, the later rounds only make the show get even better! Needless to say, everyone in the room that day was blown away—it just goes to show that if you can make it a party, everyone wins!
