Sundance Head Makes Miley Cyrus’ ‘The Climb’ a Country Ballad on ‘The Voice’
Sundance Head is making a name for himself on The Voice this season. On Monday (Oct. 24), the singer secured his spot on Team Blake during a knockout round with his memorable performance of "The Climb." His Miley Cyrus cover had even Cyrus singing along as each coach looked on, all smiles.
While Blake Shelton initially admitted that he thought the tune was too risky for the singer, advisers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill stood behind his choice. It seemed the country power couple were right, as Head managed to impress Shelton, who picked him over Josh Gallagher after Gallagher performed a cover of Brooks & Dunn's "My Maria."
Alone on acoustic guitar, Sundance Head began his performance with his deep, wavering vocals. Throughout his two minutes onstage he transformed the powerful pop hit to a beautiful and soulful country ballad. Watch his performance above.
This isn't the first time the singer has beat out a teammate. Previously, Sundance Head was chosen over Dan Shafer as they battled it out with a cover of Bad Company’s “Feel Like Makin’ Love.”
After praising both of his teammates, Shelton had to narrow it down to one contestant. Shelton's final decision was Sundance Head.
“Sundance, even as he’s standing there right now he’s like a statue. It’s like, are you alive? Are you breathing?" he explains. "That’s the thing about Sundance, it’s like, what’s going to happen? Then all of a sudden that voice comes out of there and it literally blows the brains out of my head, into the toilet, and the toilet flushes itself."
