Every now and then the judges on ‘The Voice’ get a surprise act. Sometimes artists who are already established will audition in the hopes of heading in a new direction with their career, and sometimes they go on just for a bit of fun…
When Kathie Lee and Hoda, hosts of the Today Show, walked onto the stage to sing for the judges, I think it’s safe to say they just went on for a good laugh. Naming themselves ‘The Winos’, the rambunctious pair belt their way through ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ by James Taylor, dividing the judge’s opinions.
While Kathie has a good voice (probably due to the fact she has a background in music), Hoda leaves a little more to be desired, as her friend’s joke about it in the wings. But what Hoda lacks in vocal ability, she sure makes up for it in spirit as she ‘woops’ and ‘yeahs’ her way through the song, enjoying every second of it.
Towards the end of the song, all four judges press their buzzers, unable to keep their curiosity at bay anymore. When they realise who it is standing on the stage, they can’t contain themselves and they all have a great laugh over the audition.
Watch the video below to see the hilarious ‘audition’ and who the Today Show hosts picked as their celebrity judge.
