Gina Miles and Niall Horan Beautifully Duetted Billy Joel on The Voice Finale
Gina Miles’ journey on The Voice
The 18-year-old singer first blew the crowds away during her powerful Blind Audition of “The One That Got Away” by Katy Perry.
“I love voices with so much character, like you’ve got,” Horan told Miles after she sang. “That was incredible to see you get up there and really hit those notes with proper control. Like, for such a young girl, it’s incredible.” “You went for the big chords, but you were so amazing in the early moments of the song,” Horan complimented. “They are the moments that are like, oh God, you know when you hear a good verse sung by someone who really means what they’re singing? There’s no better feeling.”
Miles continued to shine during her “insane” Playoffs performance of “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak. Horan accurately described Miles as an “unbelievable talent.” Even Horan’s Coach rival Kelly Clarkson had to give Miles some props.
“That was crazy, I mean the control … in the lower register,” Clarkson commended. “Especially that you didn’t stay up, that would have been the easier choice. You came back down to that low moody tone that is so cool and mysterious.”
“You know when you hear a unique voice on the radio, and you know that’s that person?” Horan asked. “You’ve got that distinct tone to your voice that you don’t hear often.” After Miles’ mind-blowing Top 8 performance of Kodaline’s “All I Want,” Horan commented on the fascinating juxtaposition between her speaking tone and her powerhouse vocals. “She speaks at two decibels, and sings at 400,” Horan quipped during the Live Semi-Finals, where Miles earned a much-deserved standing ovation.
The awe-inspiring performance also earned Miles the nod to head into the Season 23 finale, where she continued to impress every time she took the mic.
