'The Voice': Move Over Mathai—Charlotte Sometimes Is The Girl To Beat

Tue, February 21, 2012 11:48am EST by 9 Comments
The Voice Charlotte Sometimes

As much as the judges raved about 18-year-old Mathai, I think Charlotte Sometimes edged her out, even if by a few inches. As for finding major guy talent, I’d say meh — not so much this time.

The estrogen factor reigned on Week Four of The Voice‘s blind auditions, wouldn’t you say? Total props to Jersey girl Charlotte Sometimes — she’s definitely the singer to beat out of this week’s batch. Check out my top three picks after the jump!

Top Three
1) Charlotte Sometimes: The 23-year-old Jersey chick, who recovered from a fractured jaw, sang a loungy, pissy version of One Republic’s “Apologize,” and I was totally diggin’ it. I mean, who doesn’t like a girl with a bit of biznatch in her? For me, she was hands down the winner last night, and the fact all the judges were fighting for her proved her voice was one to be reckoned with.

2) Mathai: She’s only 18, but she strutted around the stage with a maj dose of confidence as she sang her own rendition of Adele’s “Rumour Has It.” I liked the strength and control of her voice — and her 90s perm was pretty cool, too. (And by the way, this girl isn’t meant to be a doctor.)

3) Naia Kete, 21: This street musician from Hollywood has chords more impressive then her Repunzelian dreads. I thought that her singing “The Lazy Song” was quite fitting, considering her smoky voice made me want to swing on a hammock and play patty cake with Snuggle the Fabric Softener Bear. Good stuff, and I can’t wait to hear more.

Honorable Mention
Nicolle Galyon, 27: This Kansan country girl has a strong voice, but I wouldn’t say it was amazeballs unique. Her rendition of “You Save Me” was solid, but the reason I wanna mention her is that I love her whole “piano-girl-in-country-music” angle.

Scariest Singer of the Night
The fact that Broadway star Tony Vincent, 38, can wear eyeliner better than most of us gals is already scary, but his eating-the-microphone take on “We Are the Champions” was terrifying — but in a cool way. Let’s just hope all that intensity will drain him enough to eating a few burgers.

Most Hilarballs Quote of the Night
Sandwich maker Jamie Lono, 22, performed a very cool version of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues,” and as he debated on whether to choose Adam Levine or Cee Lo as his music mentor, it seemed Cee Lo won him over when he slapped some endearing sandwich talk.

Jamie Lono: “I make sandwiches for a living.”
Cee Lo: “You know, we should hook up because I eat sandwiches!” Booyah! Whatcha got, Adam?!

Well, that’s my take on the hottest singers on Feb. 20th’s eppy. Who were your picks, HL-ers?

I’m amazed that all the articles I’ve read about Charlotte don’t mention that she has put out CD’s before & apparently is currently signed to Geffen Records. I bought her EP back in 2008.

I think it is ridiculous that people who were signed to different labels, have made albums and have music videos are allowed on the voice. Charlotte Sometimes should not be on the show and Dia Franpton shouldn’t have been on.

The people that should be on the show should be people who have never had the chance to get an album, not people whose music careers, after their first album, didn’t go anywhere. It isn’t fair.

Hey Kate, just because you’ve seen a little success in your field doesn’t mean you have a free ride. Times are still tough and The Voice is big on trying to help any and all struggling artists whether or not they have had a little success in the past. Put your protest sign away and enjoy the music.
