Did the ‘Voice’ Season 6 Premiere Feature the Best ‘Voice’ Performance Ever?
Interim coaches Shakira and Usher returned to "The Voice" this Monday for the series' Season 6 premiere — sitting in, literally, for the newly engaged, newly pregnant Christina Aguilera and original coach CeeLo Green, who just resigned. But it was coach Adam Levine who had heads spinning as rapidly as the show's famous red chairs, when he dared to call a performance by hopefuls Dawn & Hawkes HIS FAVORITE IN "VOICE" HISTORY.
Really? Yes, it was a great audition. Possibly the best of the night. But Adam liked it more than Juliet Simms's "Man's World" from Season 2? More than Amanda Brown's "Dream On" in Season 3? Or Matthew Schuler's "Hallelujah" from just last season? Apparently so.
And coming from Adam — one of the show's constant cast members, who's personally witnessed every "Voice" performance since Season 1 — this was some especially extreme praise.
It's understandable why Adam went so gaga for Dawn & Hawkes. He's an avowed Beatles buff (his band Maroon 5 recently performed on CBS's Beatles tribute, "The Night That Changed America"), so of course he melted the instant he heard the first chords of the Austin duo's song choice, the Fab Four's "I've Just Seen a Face." And Dawn & Hawkes's harmonies really were fab. But it's possible that Adam's wildly effusive praise could instigate a backlash for this twosome. (Sheesh, it's only episode one, Adam. Cool your jets!)
