AceShowbiz - The judges of "The Voice", Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, come together for an acoustic rendition of TLC's "Waterfalls". "The Voice" posted the video on YouTube on Friday, February 24, only days before the premiere of the show's season 12.
The clip sees Adam and Blake holding an acoustic guitar while Alicia sits behind a rhode piano. The judges are accompanied by two other men who play an acoustic bass and a cajon. The performance begins with Gwen, who looks stunning in hotpants and a sparkly shirt, singing the first verse. She is followed by Alicia, Adam and Blake. Later, they sing the chorus perfectly in harmony.
Alicia and Gwen split up Lisa Lopes' rap lines and nail it beautifully which makes Adam add an ad-lib as he shouts in falsetto. The judges wrap up the performance nicely with Adam saying, "I love that. That was it. Whatever that was, that was awesome. That's how you sing, America!"
Adam and Blake have been coaching on "The Voice" for every season of the series while Alicia just joined the coach line-up last season. Gwen will return to "The Voice" this season, after a two-season hiatus, to replace Miley Cyrus. The "Wind It Up" hitmaker previously coached seasons seven and nine.
Last year, the president of Alternative and Reality Group at NBC Entertainment, Paul Telegdy, revealed that the show would bring back Gwen for its 12th season. "We can't wait to experience the unique chemistry and energy Gwen, Alicia, Blake and Adam will bring to season 12," he said in a statement to E! News. "With Miley returning for season 13, we're truly ecstatic about the unmatched musical know-how and talent coming together in our coming seasons."
Season 12 of "The Voice" premieres on Monday, February 27 at 8 P.M. on NBC with its first "Blind Auditions" episode, followed by two more episodes on Tuesday and Thursday.
