Alisan Porter Outdoes Steven Tyler With ‘Cryin’ on The Voice 2016 (VIDEO)

Alisan Porter sang “Cryin'” by Aerosmith on The Voice 2016 Live Top 9 Performances on Monday, May 9, 2016 for Team Christina Aguilera.

Alisan sounds great here. I think the reason she gets all these bombastic songs is because she’s the only person in the competition with a big enough voice not to be completely and utterly drowned out by the band. Other artists likely would have had a problem getting through this song without being engulfed by the sheer volume and bombast of the backing band. But Alisan? Not so much. In fact, she thrives in this environment, working the stage like a true rocker, from going shoulder-to-shoulder with the guitarist to whipping her hair back and forth amid giant stacks of smoke while the video screen behind her simulates explosions in time with each of her notes. And that protracted note towards the end? KILLER. This is one of my favorite Alisan performances of the season. Was it surprising? Not at all. But I loved it, just the same.
