  1. The Cunningham Sisters gave the challenging song Oceans a go this last week. The adoreable younger sis has a DeAnna-like tone in her voice. Here is DeAnna's cover of Oceans from S8: And her longer studio version, in which the first half of the song finds her climbing the scale in a breathtaking way IMO. If DeAnna does her annual Halloween costume, will post it Here you go !
  2. In response to Ryleigh's cover of It Will Rain, this classic instant save
  3. Entrances, the staging, lighting and camera work bonus
  4. It's all subjective, but here is a case of a contestant robbed twice. DeAnna Johnson robbed IMO during S8, but truly robbed representing Georgia during Miss USA 2017. Going into the competition she was predicted to be a finalist.
  5. Since this season hasn't turned into an Emmy-winner, might as well make up my own fantasy scenario. The excellent Miss USA instagrammer Lucas Sigarini posted in March with the decree that DeAnna not getting crowned was "One of the biggest robberies in the history of pageantry". He does have a point. No doubt that she was robbed on The Voice as well. Everyone seems to have missed that DeAnna was doing crazy overtone singing in certain spots during her performances. Overtone singing is essentially harmonizing with yourself without doing overdubs. By training your vocal chords a singer can create extra harmonics that can create some unique tones, which DeAnna clearly had. She also had crazy phrasing, which sometimes sounded like an Irish or English singer, and she used melisma on certain words to make them sound alien. And the one time she did country on the show, her vocal breaks (or tasteful yodeling) was the equal of anything that Patsy Cline or Linda Ronstadt could pull off live. And the story was that she was going to do Cher before getting cut, and was probably going to attempt the infamous Cher autotuned break without the benefit of autotuning. The fantasy is that she won The Voice, then Miss USA in May, and then the next day came back on The Voice to sing during that season's finale. That would have won an Emmy on the spot. Cheers!
  6. Doing the Lord's work during these uncertain times Thank you DeAnna and medical professionals for your dedication.
  7. What can you do. The original DeAnna thread is gone but all the videos, photos, MP3s, and other stuff is still available at https://CoversGirl.com (sad face) (happy face) PS: And much thanks to @istersay for recovering and recreating the top of the thread. That kind of effort is deeply appreciated.
