Anne Sings ‘Price Tag’ On ‘The Voice Kids’
Anne started her performance by setting up a camera at the front of the stage to film the coaches as they turned around for her. She wore a backwards baseball cap over her long hair, and had a flannel shirt tied around her waist.
Anne showed off an amazing stage presence from the get-go, as she launched into an energetic performance of “Price Tag” by Jessie J. Even before they turned around, she had the coaches dancing in their chairs.
Coach Sasha Schmitz was the first to turn around. Lena Meyer-Landrut was the next to turn. Meanwhile, Mark Forster actually stood up in his seat and crouched down. He ended up hitting the button with his foot when Anne launched into a rap interlude.
