‘Feel’ Judith Hill With This Michael Jackson Cover On ‘The Voice’

I know that many tune in for the judges (specifically the bromance between Adam Levine and Blake Shelton) or the vocal competition in general, but, for me, Judith Hill truly makes The Voice worth watching every week. She is that rare kind of talent that comes around once every so often and leads you to wonder why she isn’t already a superstar. But if you ask me, she is well on her way as she transforms popular songs into works of art weekly. Last night was a perfect example when she took Michael Jackson‘s flirty number “The Way You Make Me Feel” and put her own stank on it. Strutting on stage rocking a dramatic up-do and jumpsuit with an ’80’s flair, she made an entrance that was simultaneously white hot and cucumber cool. She kicked it off with a jazzy slow burning intro to the song before kicking the R&B up a notch for the remainder of the performance. From her vocals to the way she worked the stage, there’s no denying that this woman is a pro. It’s no wonder the King of Pop chose her as one of his background singers for his This Is It concert series before his untimely death in 2009. Forever indebted to Jackson, Hill was overcome with emotion at the song’s end and tried to keep it together amidst applause from the audience and accolades being heaped on by the judges. This was a fitting tribute to MJ and should ensure that we see Judith Hill on our television screens for another week.
