Judith Hill

Media Title

In all likelihood, most of y’all have seen Judith Hill on The Voice. The Top Eight contender was knocked out in what’s considered to be one of the most shocking eliminations in the history of the show. It was after she sang that brutal Bieber and will.i.am joint, “#thatPOWER,” but also after she destroyed James Taylor’s “You’ve Got a Friend” and even turned in a miraculously perfect rendition of Christina Aguilera’s “What a Girl Wants.” But, as is true with lots of these bullshit reality competition shows, the winner isn’t always the biggest winner of that year’s contest. (Lookin’ at you, American Idol, Project Runway and Top Chef.) Shortly after the competition, she announced a deal with Sony and a tour support spot with Josh Groban.

Now, you also may know Hill from her dazzling turn in this year’s outstanding documentary, 20 Feet from Stardom, in which we watch her dueting and rehearsing with Michael Jackson during his final days. But just ‘cause she’s a commanding and in-demand back-up singer doesn’t mean she doesn’t have what it takes to stand on her own two legs as a solo star. Take, for instance, a single from the 20 Feet soundtrack, one of Hill’s first, called “Desperation.” Not only is she stunningly beautiful, benefiting from her parents’ outstanding genes and history as musicians, but she plays the piano with ease and grace while emoting and manipulating her voice with arresting control. Like The Voice’s Adam Levine said of Hill after she chose to be on his team—after all four judges hit their “I choose you” buttons—“She’s going to be a Grammy-winning superstar, and she’s on my team.” Lucky you, handsome. / BILL CHENEVERT
