For her first TV performance since “The Voice,” Judith Hill decided to go big, and also keep her NBC synergy intact, by performing on the top-rated show on all of late-night (at least in total viewers): “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” In addition to that, she also had the rare opportunity as a singing-show contestant to actually perform something original, rather than just a cover of something she did while on the show.
The song that she chose for this particular show is “Desperation,” her single off of the soundtrack to her upcoming film “20 Feet From Stardom.” (You can pick up the song at this link.) If you loved her on the show, isn’t it an understatement to say that you loved her here? This was an opportunity to really see the sort of artist she is away from the competition format, which is very nice for those who were not familiar with her going into this season.
We think that there are still a number of people shocked by Judith’s elimination, especially when you consider that the entire show has practically become a country-music hoedown in the past week or so. Even though Holly Tucker is now gone, three of the five remaining acts are still country artists. For those curious about the road ahead, be sure to check out our coverage all weekend long … including contestant rankings.
