It’s time for the difficult knockout rounds for this season of The Voice, and Casi Joy came prepared. The “Team Blake” contestant put her own spin on Maren Morris’ breakthrough hit “My Church,” adding plenty of dramatic flair.
It’s easy to take for granted just how insane Morris’ voice really is. Instead of trying to completely recreate her sound, Joy opted to add a few more twists to her rendition. Although the tinge of yodel seemed a little out of place, overall she provided an impressive performance.
It was enough to move Joy to the live finals, beating out Felicia Temple, who covered Celine Dion’s trademark hit, “My Heart Will Go On.” Joy joins Ashley Levin, a former member of Team Blake, in the next round. She also impressed the judges with a energetic version of Bobbie Gentry and Reba McEntire’s hit “Fancy.”
So, will Casi Joy follow in the footsteps of RaeLynn and Cassadee Pope? Country fans will have to keep tuning into The Voice each Monday and Tuesday on NBC to find out.
