Young Melanie Martinez nails her coach’s pick: Lenka’s “The Show”, during the second round of The Voice.
Melanie’s Song The Show - This is such a great song for Melanie in i’s original form and naturally she kills it. And her set is, again, amazing! She’s kind of got a little music video going on, with dancers coming out with a cardboard car and her acting as if she’s singing inside it – it’s really cool. Seriously, she got an entire music video basically. And it was fantastic. And I loved it.
Judges’ Comments: Blake tells Melanie that it’s definitely different, since she tends to head in a darker direction, but most importantly she sang it well. But he seems a little perplexed, as if there’s something missing. Christina compliments the set again, and tells Melanie that she’d like to see her do a “throw-back Fiona Apple type of song,” something a little more sultry (although it kind of turns into the Christina show when she sings a couple Fiona songs). Cee Lo says that he enjoyed the performance and also compliments the stage sets, while saying he’s a fan of hers and he loves her. Adam takes his opportunity to call out Christina for giving props to the guy backstage – apparently, Adam and Melanie designed the entire set. He heaps praise on Melanie, saying that she’s great and he’s a huge fan.
