‘The Voice’ Season 23 Winner Gina Miles Journey to Stardom, All Performances
The Voice has officially crowned their Season 23 winner, 18 year old Gina Miles. The Paxton, Illinois native has had quite the journey on the series, so let’s look back at each of her performances.
Gina Miles The Voice Journey
Blind Audition – “The One That Got Away” by Katy Perry
Gina first came to The Voice stage singing a soft, yet powerful version of Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away.” Right off the bat, Kelly Clarkson turned for the singer, later, Niall Horan followed Clarkson’s lead. Even though Clarkson tried her best to persuade Gina, Blake Shelton was all for Gina joining Team Niall. To get Gina to join his team, Horan explained that he doesn’t have the same industry experience as Clarkson, but he knows what it’s like to excel throughout a show. Gina chose Team Niall.
Battle Round – “Skinny Love” by Bon Iver
In the Battle Rounds, Gina performed an emotional rendition of “Skinny Love” by Bon Iver with Kala Banham. Although both singers were amazing in this performance, Horan picked Gina as the battle winner.
Knockout Round – “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye
In the Knockout Rounds, Gina faced against powerhouse artist Kate Cosentino. Gina impressed with her rendition of “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye in this round. This performance truly showed off how large her singing range is.
Playoffs- “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak
Following The Knockout Round, Gina returned with an emotionally beautiful performance of “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak. This was truly the song that elevated Gina in the competition. It was the absolute best pick for her and her vocals.
Top 8 – “All I Want” by Kodaline
In Semifinals, Gina returned with yet another impressive rendition. Once again, she showed off her lower register with “All I Want” by Kodaline. America loved this performance, saving the singer from elimination.
Top 5- “Style” by Taylor Swift
For the Finale, Gina asked to perform a pop song by none other than Taylor Swift. Since we had only heard slower songs from Gina (other than her blind audition) this was a bit of a change. The singer hopes to pursue pop music professionally, so it makes sense that she’d want to perform a popular, pop song.
Live Finale – “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinéad O’Connor
Gina’s second Finale performance was yet another stunning slower song. “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinéad O’Connor once again showed off the singer’s abilities in her lower range. I personally loved the staging for this performance as well, it was so well done. It felt like Gina had already won the show and we’re now at her concert.
Coach Performance – “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel
In the Finale Part 2, Gina finally got the chance to perform with her coach, Niall Horan. The two picked a fantastic song for both of their registers. They truly had one of the best coach performances of the night.
