The live shows of The voice of Holland are approaching and the first four participants have just been announced! Ali B had to make difficult choices this time. He watched his self-composed group Hype Flavor make way for 16-year-old Alyssa. Her performance of ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ struck the right chord with all judges, making her the first finalist of the current season. “Magisterial”, that’s how Ali described her.
24-year-old Nienke is described by Ali as a real ‘powerhouse’. She proved that once again with her performance of the Michael Jackson classic ‘Billie Jean’. It put the coach for a split, because he had to choose between Nienke and Karlijn. “Great job done”, Ali once again says to the singer, after which he announces that she can take the place of Karlijn.
Channah blew the coaches away with her performance of ‘Heartof Glass’. “You really come out of your shell and I like that to see”, Jan Smit responds enthusiastically. “You have proven that with this performance, that you can show more of yourself”, says her coach Waylon. He then finds himself in the difficult position of sending someone home so Channah can stay. When Cécile clears the field, Channah can sit down and mentally prepare for the live shows.
Audience favorite Sezina can keep her chair warm for a long time, but then Sem comes around the corner. The 17-year-old impressed with a performance of ‘Laat Me’, which is original by Ramses Shaffy. But Anouk thinks it is a special performance. “I don’t understand why you have that guitar if you don’t play it,” she explains. But Waylon stands up for his candidate and sends him to the live shows.
It is a season full of surprises, as the video below shows.
