One of Blake Shelton’s two remaining contestants in the Top 4 of “The Voice” is Cassadee Pope — and tonight, she pretty much secured herself a place in the final rounds when she performed Keith Urban’s song, “Stupid Boy.”
Though Cassadee is not a typical country artist, she has performed several country songs on the show, which has garnered some criticism — particularly because, obviously, Shelton is a country star. “Before I start reading about this tomorrow, the reason that Cassadee’s done a handful of country songs on this show is because … she has the ability to connect with a lyric like nobody else that I’ve probably ever seen on this show … and some of these heartfelt country songs I know, like this Keith Urban song, are just so perfect for you, because nobody else … could do what you just did in that moment.”
And connect she did. All of the judges were blown away by Cassadee’s performance. “Cassadee, you know that I’m a fan. Sometimes your voice sounds so right on that you almost sound auto-tuned because it’s so perfect,” she said. “The passion that you evoke brings your lyrics to life. I believe you, and I think that’s what’s so important. Blake, you have a true superstar on your hands.”
