Are you ready to get sexy? The Voice
premieres Monday, March 25 at 8pm on NBC, and with it comes a performer
who might have what it takes to go very far. In this new video, we get
to see the season 4 blind audition of Christian Porter, and it's pretty
For starters, the dude is singing LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It," which should automatically disqualify him. But he has a groovy, sexy arrangement that makes it almost unrecognizable. Even the "wiggle, wiggle, wiggle" part is wildly different.
To be fair, it's clearly influenced heavily or just copied from the British X Factor's
season 9 winner James Arthur, who in turn borrowed heavily from a YouTube star named Only1Noah. I've included both versions below for you to compare, though I don't think it necessarily makes Porter's any less entertaining.

audition for yourself.
He definitely has a Dez Duron-style influence over the ladies, but I'd say his voice is actually much better. He has sort of a Phillip Phillips thing going, but he looks like a young Michael C. Hall (or a hotter version of The New Normal
's Andrew Rannells). Either way, he got Shakira, Usher and Blake Sheltong to turn their chairs around (Adam Levine was too perplexed by the arrangement and probably doesn't want anyone sexier than him on his team).
For me, the artistry, voice and look of Christian Porter are better than the other blind audition NBC has released, Judith Hill
. Whatever happens, I definitely look forward to whatever he comes up with next.
