RaeLynn Is ‘Hell on Heels’ on Season Premiere of ‘The Voice’
‘The Voice‘ hopeful RaeLynn, 17, revealed in her pre-audition performance interview — which aired during the Season 2 premiere of the show tonight (Feb. 5) — that she was hoping coach Blake Shelton would turn his chair around for her. She was, after all, performing ‘Hell on Heels’ by Pistol Annies, a country trio which features his wife, Miranda Lambert. Last season, Shelton was memorably lukewarm to someone performing one of his wife’s tunes. RaeLynn’s choice was a risky one for sure.
It paid off, though, because the farm girl got her wish, as both Shelton and Adam Levine turned their chairs around for her. She strummed her guitar and looked girly and cute with her red shoes, red lips, red fingernails and a big red, Carrie Bradshaw-style flower in her hair. She was incredibly fashionable for a girl who said she grew up on a farm 45 minutes outside of Houston and spends her days surrounded by eggs and combing horse hair. But it was her big, country-style voice that had two judges from two different genres vying to coach her.
Shelton and Levine bantered — with Shelton saying he could make RaeLynn a country star, while Levine swas aying she should want to be more, and he could help with that. She ultimately went with Shelton as her coach.
Season 2 of ‘The Voice’ started off strong, that’s for sure.
