NBC’s ‘The Voice’ season 4 preview: See Christian Porter, Judith Hill

The VoiceBefore “The Voice” season 4 premieres on NBC Monday night, we thought it best to give you an idea of a couple of the performers who are hoping to impress the likes of Usher, Shakira, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. While “American Idol” is by and large a show that focused primarily on undiscovered talent, this is a program that really highlights artists who have been working hard for years to make their dreams come true, and are really looking for just one more opportunity in order to take their careers to the next level.

Judith Hill – Does she look familiar to you? Judith received international attention back in 2009 for her performance of “Heal the World” at Michael Jackson’s funeral. She was meant to be a part of the “This Is It” tour before the legendary King of Pop’s death, so we have a feeling that she will have quite a story to tell should the choose to highlight this in a big way.

Christian Porter – We don’t know a lot about Christian right now, but he has a pretty fantastic voice. Not only that, but he has covered Adam’s band Maroon 5 in the past along with such other songs as Coldplay’s “Trouble” and John Maher’s “Belief.” His voice actually feels like it is one part Maher, and one part “American Idol” winner Kris Allen. Watch out: this guy could go very far in this competition.

While everyone knows that “American Idol” was the original talent competition, it really feels as though this is the year that “The Voice” could really overtake the show in every way. Some of the contestants on the Fox series this year are not particularly exciting, and we have a full range of great contestants here along with also coaches who seem to genuinely like each other.
