Lilli Passero performed an intense and emotional version of “It’s Too Late” by Carole King on The Voice playoffs. She is fighting for a spot in the Top 12.
Alicia Keys loved the song and felt that she always had a connection with the songs she chooses. Alicia said that Lilli never breaks her gaze. She loved how she can relate the intensity. Alicia felt Lilli was authentic. Adam Levine said Lilli is a world class singer. Adam said that she is really subtle and never breaks but is always inside how she feels.
What did you think of the performance? Let us know in the comments section.
Lilli’s parents are the “ultimate theater nerds,” both having professional careers in musical theater. Lilli’s life was all about performing, acting and singing, and she went on to study acting at Carnegie Mellon University. She graduated and moved to Hollywood to pursue acting, going on many auditions and landing various guest spots, including on NBC’s “Go On.” She currently works as a server but continues to audition and even had a starring role in “Cabaret,” in which she received positive feedback on her voice.

The three-time Emmy Award-winning “The Voice” returns with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show’s new season. Grammy Award-winning artist Gwen Stefani returns as a coach this season, joining megastars Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton and host Carson Daly.
The show’s innovative format features five stages of competition: the first begins with the blind auditions, followed by the battle rounds, the knockouts, the live playoffs and, finally, the live performance shows.
In the live playoff rounds, the Top 20 artists compete to secure a spot in the live shows. Artists perform live, and America votes to save their two favorite artists from each team. The coaches then save one remaining artist to complete their roster. The remaining contestants move on to the final phase of the competition – the live shows.
