One of the best ways to make an impact on The Voice is by making a recognizable song your own. It’s no easy feat, but one that Nashville resident Taylor Alexander achieved with his blind audition.
You may know the song “Believe” as the 1998 electronic, thumping dance tune from pop icon Cher. But this 25-year-old Georgia native managed to morph the track into something reminiscent of Hank Williams. (It helps that he also looks like his modern day doppelgänger).
Don’t believe me? Watch the surprising live audition below.
Although his voice was full of twang, he didn’t turn the chair of resident country judge Blake Shelton. He did win over Adam Levine, who noted his performance as one of the craziest things he’s ever heard. And he’s seen a lot over the past 12 seasons of The Voice.
So will this performance mark the start of something big for Alexander? Fans will have to wait and see how he progresses as the blind auditions continue over the next few weeks. You can catch the next episode of The Voice tonight, March 7, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
