Jessie J, will.i.am, ‘The Voice U.K.’ Judges Perform ‘I Gotta Feeling’
Just like the mentors on the U.S. edition of ‘The Voice‘ kicked off their season with a Prince medley, the mentors on ‘The Voice U.K.’ pulled off a live group performance on the series premiere of the show over the weekend.
The diverse team of Jessie J, will.i.am, Danny O’Donoghue of the Script and Tom Jones decided to go with one of Will’s hits, the Black Eyed Peas smash ‘I Gotta Feeling.’ O’Donoghue began the song on piano with a more reserved arrangement of the song, which opened up when will.i.am came in for the rap portion.
Jones took the second chorus while Jessie J handled Fergie‘s parts capably. Jones and Jessie J complemented each other nicely on harmony, and the entire group sounded surprisingly good together. The performance set an upbeat tone for the new season of the show and has us eager to see more collaborations from the judging panel in the future.
‘I Got a Feeling’ spent 14 weeks at No. 1 in America in 2009, won a Grammy Award, and also topped the charts in Britain.
