Someone get Taylor Swift a spinning red chair ASAP.
The Voice’s revived knockout rounds continued on Tuesday night, with Swift sitting in as a universal guest mentor to the contestants of Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams. And for the second night this week, she continued to show not only her expert command of the stage, but also her ability to actually communicate those tips in a way that the remaining competitors can improve and apply to the live shows — and more importantly, coming off as likeable to viewers at home.
“Let your mind be the metronome, and be still,” she insightfully advised a swaying singer, and told another of effective eye contact, “Think of your eyes as if they have laser beams or spotlights in them — give bold, hurt, dejected looks, and use that as your sniper shot.” She’s the female equivalent of Usher as a coach, with all the push-ups substituted for jokes about being a crazy woman and having cats.
According to her one-album-every-two-years pattern, can someone set her up with a contract to rotate in for fall 2015 or spring 2016, please? And of course, a Swift collab with any of the other coaches would also be highly welcomed.
