Friday is the finale of The Voice Senior, the heartwarming talent show that the past two weekends, each time more than 1 million people knew to captivate. Eight votes are left over after the Blind Auditions and the Knockout-round and they are now being groomed by coaches Natalia, Dana Winner, Walter Grootaers and Helmut Lotti for the grand finale. Because each of the four coaches wants the victory bringing in the first The Voice Senior. Who should be the first ‘senior’ a single record and pension supplement with a prize of 10,000 euros?
The final falls in the middle of the warm week between Christmas and new year, so in terms of styling if it is just a little bit more. In a gala outfit to open the eight finalists of the show with ‘Suspicious Minds’, already in use by many perfomers, but immortal in the version of Elvis Presley. The coaches can not do anything else then have the right to jump out of their swivel chair and swinging. An Lemmens dancing along in her festive glitterjurk.
Each coach now has two votes in his team, but must choose who doorstoot to the final round. A mind-blowing command. And heartbreaking, because the coach should own 1 of the 2 to choose. Later will be a publieksjury from the four remaining finalists, the final winner to choose.
Team Dana goes first in the arena. Michel (63, Gosselies), brings the French version of Only the Very Best, a song that Peter Kingsberry of Cock Robin ever solo brought. With somewhere in the middle a very high note. Retrieves Michel or not?
Lou (62, Kapellen) brings Cold in my Heart by Frank Boeyen and sounds according to Helmut as a cross between Frank and Peter Van Laet of Mom’s Jacket.
Bring together the two in a funny movie is also a tribute to their coach, Dana, with a very own version of her song I Love You. Who sends Dana to the next round?
A team of two men exists, is that of Walter. Charles (60, Aalst, belgium) rocks with Hoochy Coochy Man by Muddy Waters. And John Leo (66, Yellow) brings the catchy He was but a Clown, was a big hit for the Dutch Ben Cramer.
Of rivalry between the two is not the case. They already have a lot of fun, and I have them in the studio of John together for a new version of White Christmas by Bing Crosby.
Walter is to say as a yo-yo about to and fro. Those are two of the poulains should he choose?
