Meghan Linsey Earns Praise With ‘Something’ Cover on ‘The Voice’ [WATCH]
The number of contestants is slowly dwindling on The Voice, and the competition is getting stiffer, but Meghan Linsey continues to prove herself among the best. Her performance during Monday night (April 27)'s Top 8 round earned major kudos from coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
Linsey performed the Beatles' "Something," a No. 1 single for the band in 1969. Dressed in an elegant black dress and flanked by a staircase of violinists, Linsey skillfully belted out George Harrison's well-known lyrics: "You're asking me, will my love grow? / I don't know, I don't know / You stick around now, it may show / I don't know, I don't know."
"I love seeing Blake have you do a song that's not in his wheelhouse," Levine remarked after Linsey's performance.
Shelton, Linsey's coach, called the performance "classy," then paid her an even higher compliment.
"Your singing just gets better with every week that goes by," he said. "I expect to see you in the finale of the show this year."
On Twitter, Linsey earned praise from numerous country artists, including Randy Houser, Jason Michael Carroll and Kelly Clarkson, the latter of whom called Linsey "better than most singers I've ever heard."
"Not only can you wail," Clarkson writes, "but you can be intense and powerful."
Linsey's cover of "Something" is available for download on iTunes. This week's eliminations will take place during Tuesday night (April 28)'s episode, which is set to air at 8PM ET on NBC.
