To be totally transparent, I’m not totally sure how coaches pick team or duet performances on “The Voice.” The songs have to be cleared in advance for payment and obviously, no one is going to sing “Space Jam” or anything, but after that– they seem to try and really choose songs that are going to benefit the contestants.
Enter– coach Miley Cyrus and #TeamMiley contestant Brooke Simpson singing, “Wrecking Ball,” Miley’s mega-hit from a few years ago. Obviously, Miley benefits from this choice, but does Brooke? Yes. Big time.
The only insight we got into the choice was, “It’s a perfect canvas for you to color in…,” Miley said. And it was. Miley wasn’t a distraction and Brooke was able to show off a different part of her range.
