Minneapolis nanny rocker belts out 'Let it Go' for Edina family


Minneapolis nanny rocker Kat Perkins sang two songs Monday night in an attempt to secure her spot in the top three on NBC's hit show "The Voice," which had her coach singing her praises.

"Here's why Kat Perkins is so amazing and here's why she should be in the finale," Perkins' coach Adam Levine said after she performed her first song of the night, "Chandelier" by pop artist Sia, the Pioneer Press reports."Because she is hands down one of the best singers we've really honestly ever had. As far as the show being called 'The Voice' and singing, this girl has fought her way through two elimination weeks and deserves to fight her way through the last elimination week."

For her second song, she performed "Let it Go" from the box office hit "Frozen." She picked the song because of the family she nannied in Edina – and the Kellers were in the audience to cheer her on, WDAY notes. Perkins said she had taken some of the Kellers to see the movie and "Let it Go" was their favorite song.

Voice coach Shakira said the uber-popular song was an "unexpected pick" for the rocker, but it continued to show "another side" of her musical abilities.

The coaches applauded her performance.

“That’s a complicated song to sing, and everybody loves that record,” Voice coach Usher said, according to WDAY. “It was a classic performance.”

Levine continued to compliment her, saying, "As far as vocals are concerned, it doesn't get better than Kat Perkins," according to KARE 11.

Fans can vote for their favorite performer until 11 a.m. on Tuesday. Two of the remaining five contestants on "The Voice" will be cut on the show tonight, leaving a final three. The show starts at 7 p.m. on NBC.
