Ibe, Rune, Petra, Karim, Bram and William, that are the 6 talents from team Koen and Bart, who are already sure of a place in the live finals of The Voice van Vlaanderen. Last week were 777.402 viewers, good for 37,7% of the market share (VVA 18-54, live+4), glued to the screen for their exciting battles to follow. Friday 26 april, the last 6 duels fought in the teams of Alex and Natalia, in whom the tempers and emotions flare up. Alex is during one of the battles, even so disappointed in his candidates that he has them firmly with the feet on the ground…
Before Alex his first duo in the battlering sends, he pulls there with his team. In sunny Italy, his poulains the order with Alex’ songwriter-buddy, with whom he spent a lot of Hooverphonic-hits composed a song in each other to boxing. After the preparation follows the real work: Alex sends his two powerzangeressen Nisrine (19, Oelegem) and Margarita (20, Wetteren) on the stage for one of the most difficult battles. That has everything to do with the choice of songs, Tightrope by Janelle Monáe, a song with a high tempo, high notes, and little gas masks. “In addition, do you have a full phone book and text on the outside have to learn,” says Bart.
Team Natalia stays closer to home. She takes her attired candidates to the opera in Cologne. In addition to a meeting with the soloist, a professional operazangles on the program. Miro (26, Ghent) and Daria (18, Begijnendijk) may for the first battle of the team, fortunately, a different genre. “They sang both a ballad during the Knockouts, now is the time for something else”, says their coach, who is the uptemponummer Say Something Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton has chosen. Not an easy task, because they will have both rhythm and pace need to keep. “I liked this better than the version of Timberlake”, says Koen after their performance. Which voice can Natalia the most?
“The two together, that is the perfect battle”, Alex said full of anticipation about the frail voice of Charlotte (22, Ertvelde), and the beautiful timbre of Elise (23, Veurne). Alex trusts the ladies and also one of his absolute lievelingsnummers, Fade Into You by Mazzy Star. But can Charlotte and Elise the high expectations of their coach also redeem it?
