Kat Perkins wows 'The Voice' with hard rock version of 'Get Lucky'


Minnesota rocker Kat Perkins brought the crowd and the judges to their feet after her surprising hard rock cover of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" on "The Voice" Top 8 live show Monday night.

The hit electronic pop song isn't Perkins' usual style. But before the show, Perkins said she wanted to have a "breakout moment" by giving viewers a pop song with a "Kat spin," according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. And she did just that.

Her powerful vocal performance had the look and feel of a hard rock concert, complete with flames shooting from the stage, flashing strobes and spinning laser lights.

Her coach, Adam Levine, called it "unbelievable."

"You just did a heavy-metal rendition of a Daft Punk funk tune in the coolest way," Levine said, according to the Pioneer Press. "There's nothing that wasn't amazing about that."

Levine, whose new platinum blonde-dyed hair was the talk of social media, also wondered how Perkins could have been in the bottom three performers last week. She had to win a "sing-off" to advance to this round.

Perkins, 33, is a North Dakota native who now lives in Minneapolis and works as a nanny.

Perkins will learn if she moves to the top five during the live results show on Tuesday at 7 p.m. on NBC.
