Kim Yarbough Has Us ‘Rolling In The Deep’ On ‘The Voice’

Kim Yarbough is either very brave or very foolish, taking on Adele‘s ‘Rolling In The Deep’ tonight on ‘The Voice.’  While we thought the LA native rocked her bold song choice, the judges disagreed.  Adele’s influence hangs over the industry like an all-encompassing cloud, so we applaud Kim for picking the most well-known song of the past year.

Yarbough is one of the oldest competitors this year at the age of 50, and brings a ton of experience that the competition lacks.  Her brassy audition to Chaka Khan’s ‘Tell Me Something Good’ was a highlight of the audition rounds.  She chose to sing ‘Rolling In The Deep’ because she related to the pain in the song.  Her coach Adam Levine hoped the song would bring her a “mega moment,” while Kim promised she would “sing like it’s the last time I’m gonna draw breath.”

The heartfelt singer owned the stage, powerfully growling many of the notes.  She hit all of the big notes competently, even adding some falsetto we had never heard from her before.  While she didn’t change up the arrangement enough to completely make the song her own, the heartfelt belter left a huge impression.

Blake Shelton thought she got stronger as she went on, implying the beginning of the song was rough. Cee Lo Green thought it was too safe of a song choice, saying he loved her but not the performance.  Surprisingly, Levine acknowledged the problems with the performance and agreed with his fellow coaches.  He still said that overall, she was an unbelievable singer and hoped she advanced to the next round, where she, “can fly with the right song.”

We aren’t sure we were in the same room as the judges, and hope Yarbough sails through to the next round.
