When Judith Hill (@Judith_Hill) first appeared on ‘The Voice’ and brought down the house with her funky rendition of Christina Aguilera’s nineties hit ‘What a Girl Wants,’ it seemed as if the singer would go farther than she eventually did on the game show. Hill was unexpectedly eliminated last week, failing to make it into the Top 6, baffling judges Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Usher and Shakira. Hill only sang four words during her audition before all of the judges pressed their buttons, hoping to have her on their team. Even Michael Jackson recognized her star quality when he selected her to be his duet partner for ‘This Is It’ in 2009.
Hill’s coach, Adam Levine, remarked “I hate this country” after her shocking elimination, suspecting that working with Michael Jackson may have hindered her success on the show. “I think a lot of people always root for the underdog, and I found myself being considered a frontrunner because of my story,” commented Hill in Rolling Stone magazine.
Currently, Hill is working on her next album and trying to find a label. Hopefully, the powerful singer will have success in real life despite her departure from the game show.
