Tonight, all of the finalists on “The Voice” are getting a chance to perform some sort of original song, and for Hannah Huston, this marked a chance to do something especially original: Have a chance to perform a song that she actually co-wrote with her own mentor Pharrell Williams. The writing credits are per Mjsbigblog.)
Hannah’s song is entitled “I Call the Shots,” and upon listening to the iTunes version (you can do so yourself by heading over here), you can tell that this is a funky, quirky pop / R&B rock song that certainly has some of her coach’s flair to it. Lyrically much of the song narrows down to a refrain of the title done several different times, and in several different ways. It’s clear here that the song is preaching a message f empowerment, and at the same time, the idea seems to be showing off her vocal power while not forcing her to do a drawn-out, emotional ballad like we’ve seen with so many “American Idol” coronation songs over the years.
Will this song help Hannah win the show? Much of it will probably depend on how she performs it on the show itself, since we’re not sensing too many people will judge it based on the iTunes recording before the show. She’s somewhat of an underdog mostly in that Adam Wakefield and Alisan Porter have been considered by many to be the favorites to win this season, but there have certainly been some come-from-behind victories in the past and she has the vocal ability to pull this off.
We’ll have our take on her live rendition and much more when “The Voice” airs tonight.
