Emily Ann Roberts Sings ‘9 to 5’ on The Voice 9 (VIDEO)
Emily Ann Roberts sang “9 to 5” by Dolly Parton on The Voice 9 Semi-Final for Team Blake Shelton on Monday, December 7, 2015!
The vocal is really good (like, REALLY good, in my opinion), but the performance is kind of lacking, for me. For about 75% of it, she wears this blank expression, so that even while she’s moving, she just looks sort of zoned out. However, she does come alive for the last quarter of the performance, with some sassy head and hip movements, and a smile or two here and there. She’s got great talent, and her stage presence has improved by leaps and bounds over the course of the season, but this wasn’t as great as I thought it could have been. Then again, this is still a singing competition, and I genuinely thought it was one of the better vocals of the night overall, onstage performance notwithstanding. Watch the performance video below:
