‘The Voice’: One Contestant’s Cover of ‘Dust in the Wind’ Will Blow You Away

by Jonathan Howard

One of the best acts on The Voice this season is Girl Named Tom, on Team Kelly. The trio has proven to be the real deal on the show. Their latest cover of Dust in the Wind is going to absolutely blow you away.

Originally written and popularized by Kansas, the 1977 song is a classic. Over an acoustic guitar, the trio harmonized and brought out the best in each other’s voices. The group also looked the part with some modern, but retro outfits. This group has been one of the favorites and it is clear why when you see a performance like this.

Check it out below.

This song can be so chilling when done right. That’s exactly what Girl Named Tom did for their top-13 performance. This is when The Voice gets very competitive. The band has been performing well in the entire competition. With this latest performance, they are sure to be a favorite for moving on to the next round.

When the performance was all said and done, John Legend described it as “haunting.” That is a wonderful summation of the performance. It was a strong night for Team Kelly. Girl Named Tom has now developed their style and sound further and seems very confident when they take the stage. That same confidence can be seen in another member of Kelly Clarkson’s team.

It was Jeremy Rosado that brought Clarkson to tears last night. Rosado put on a performance of Because You Loved Me by Celina Dion. His R&B style and presence are so powerful. These are two acts that Team Kelly could send to the finals. Either one of them could win the entire thing. However, there are more performances to go and elimination tonight before anything else is decided on The Voice.

‘The Voice’ Top-13 Performances

As the night went on, more memorable performances took place on stage. While Girl Named Tom and Jeremy Rosado put on great shows on The Voice there were others as well. Team Ariana had a performance from Ryleigh Plank that might have been her best, but is it enough? That remains to be seen for the singer once saved by Ariana earlier in the competition.

The one that Blake Shelton calls, THE country artist on the show, Lana Scott rocked the stage as well. She took on a Tim McGraw tune and knocked it out of the park. However, Wendy Moten once again stole the show with her rendition of Blue Bayou.

Moten is Blake’s favorite contestant ever and he voiced his strong support already in the competition. He says he wants her to win The Voice more than anyone else before. She took the Linda Ronstadt song and made it hers and made that stage hers as well. It was an impressive performance that will be remembered for a while.
