I’m all about “Stay” these days. It’s quickly become one of my favorite Rihanna songs of all-time. Too bad, the coaches of The Voice Australia didn’t cover that ballad instead.
That said, their rendition of “Diamonds” isn’t too shabby. Surprisingly for me, Joel Madden shined the brightest. I almost wish the Good Charlotte member sang the entire thing himself. Aussie’s sweetheart, Delta Goodrem, also sounded at ease with her parts. She also looked fantastic.
On the flip side, Seal had difficulty with the RiRi track. Are her notes too big for him? While a great performer, Ricky Martin didn’t feel natural on the track either. During his solos, it felt like he was trying to make “Diamonds” sound like “Livin’ La Vida Loca.” She’s (Ricky) is so dramatic when she sings ;) Check out the performance below.
Clearly, Martin is the highest-priced judge on the show. Did you see his entrance? What do you think of the cover? Do you wish any of these judges were on the American version instead? Sound off below.
