Missy Elliot joins The Voice: Should she become a permanent judge?
The Voice has had some very impressive mentors over the years, but tonight's adviser was especially popular among the show's fans. Missy Elliott paired up with Pharell, and wow — talk about a dynamic duo!
Fans went nuts when Elliott showed up at the Super Bowl, and they were nearly as excited when she joined Team Pharrell on The Voice. Their excitement only grew stronger when they realized how much passion for the contestants Elliott possesses. Her love of music was especially evident while she was advising Mark Hood and Celeste Batton, both of whom were very, very happy to work with the award-winning artist.
First, however, Pharrell offered several compliments of his own, telling Elliott that the opportunity was special for him because "there's only one Missy Elliott."
While Hood and Batton were rehearsing "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," Elliott got very emotional. She claimed that their rendition of the song stirred up feelings she hadn't experienced in a long, long time. One look at Elliott, and it was obvious that she really was feeling the music. Her response to Hood and Batton's rehearsal was touching, as it proved just how much passion she has for her craft — and for developing a whole new generation of amazing musicians.
Of course, Elliott was not the only big name featured during the first round of Battles. Other superstars called up to lend a hand included John Fogerty, Selena Gomez and Brad Paisley. All had plenty to bring to the table, but Elliott by and far generated the best response from fans on social media, several of whom declared that she made the Battles worth watching. Highlighted below are just a few of the many compliments sent Elliott's way during last night's episode of The Voice:
Fans were not simply complimentary of Elliott's emotional feedback; they also highlighted her sense of style. Like Pharrell, the adviser has a thing for hats, and the two looked great sitting together in their stylish headwear.
This is shaping up to be another amazing season for Team Pharrell. With a wonderful group of musicians and the help of the very talented Elliott, the coach just might have what it takes to win two seasons of The Voice in a row!
