...like a star, indeed. Listen to the pain and anguish and restrained emotion in this semi-final effort from Becky Hill on BBC's THE VOICE.
To pick Vince Kidd over this girl shows (to me) that the viewing public in this country are FUCKING CLUELESS.
I mean, the Corinne Bailey Rae version is alright. You know, it's a cute song anyway. But - every single time - I'm just weeping uncontrollably like a blubbering idiot. A blubbering idiot. EVERY SINGLE TIME I hear Becky Hill's EVISCERATING version of LIKE A STAR.
I'm reminded of Sade. I'm reminded of Tracy Chapman. And yes, Janis Joplin (when she really rocks it).
One year from now. Becky Hill will surely be invited back on The Voice as on of 2012/13's great success stories. I hope. I mean, I really hope this isn't the last we hear of this gifted individual.
