Over the course of The Voice‘s most up-to-date season, eventual winner Chloe Kohanski belted out a grand assortment of basic tracks that had been completely fitted to her voices highs and lows. From Blondie’s “Name Me” to Helen Reddy’s “I Am Girl” to all the remainder, Kohanski delivered the professional performances wanted to win over voters. So when CinemaBlend not too long ago spoke with the newest Voice champ, I requested her if there have been any songs she wished she might have carried out. There was, and it occurred to be the Final Likelihood tune she by no means bought to sing. In Kohanski’s phrases:
To be trustworthy, I really feel like I bought fairly fortunate with my songs. Oh, I do know! My Final Likelihood tune. I used to be by no means within the backside, so I by no means bought to do it, but it surely was ‘White Flag’ by Dido. I really wished to do this tune, however they gave me ‘Thank You’ as an alternative. And I used to be kinda like, ‘I ponder why…’ however then I thought of it, and it was Thanksgiving. So it was a cool second to have, on the present, a tune simply saying ‘Thanks,’ you recognize what I imply? However yeah, I wished to do ‘White Flag’ actually unhealthy — tremendous stripped-down, however nonetheless with the beat. Actually do up the ’80s vibe of that tune, however I by no means bought an opportunity to sing it. It was actually fairly, too. I assume I can sing it one other time.
First, might there be a cooler Voice-related humblebrag than lacking out on performing one’s Final Likelihood tune with different bottom-dwelling contestants? Second, it is a disgrace that viewers by no means bought an opportunity to observe Chloe Kohanski taking up Dido’s “White Flag.” Arguably Dido’s most well-known tune, “White Flag” is simply the sort of monitor that Kohanski would have knocked out of the park, particularly if she imbued it with the emotional longing that oozed from her first unique single, “Want I Did not Love You,” which she carried out on the finale. Hopefully she’ll movie herself singing it at karaoke evening or one thing.
Chloe Kohanski loves Dido and her music, and she or he instructed me why she’s such a fan.
I believe Dido’s actually cool. I really feel like she kinda tapped in — again within the late ’90s and early 2000s — she tapped into the “’90’s-does-’70s” vibe. Her voice is sort of timeless like that, so it was enjoyable doing considered one of her songs. So yeah, if I might do one other one, it might be ‘White Flag’ for positive. That is a super-special one.
As she talked about, Chloe Kohanski did get to carry out Dido’s “Thank You” on The Voice‘s pre-Thanksgiving episode, and although it wasn’t the one she wished to cowl, it was the extra correct tune to ship gracious vacation vibes. What would have occurred if she’d have ended up within the backside three after that? Would she have carried out two Dido songs in a single week?
For what it is value, Chloe Kohanski additionally instructed me that she and her (second) coach Blake Shelton had been emailing one another about performing Roxette’s 1992 hit “It Should Have Been Love.” Although that plan by no means materialized, the singer instructed me she had some good concepts for a way she would have carried out that tune, so hopefully we’ll get to in the future hear her taking up “White Flag” and “It Should Have Been Love.”
Take a look at which performances made Chloe Kohanski the most nervous, in addition to what frustrated her concerning the present. And whereas ready for The Voice to return to NBC on Monday, February 26, try all the opposite new and returning reveals heading to the small display with our 2018 midseason premiere schedule.
