For those looking for reasons to doubt Missy Elliott’s triumphant return to the music business, you’ll want to take a bunch of seats.
Missy stole the show during the season finale of NBC’s hit vocal competition show “The Voice” last night (December 15) when she and “The Voice” judge Pharrell performed their new hit “WTF (Where They From).” The song’s compelling music video was repurposed for the show’s live stage, complete with futuristic (dare we say “cyberpunk?”) outfits, backup dancers and even marionettes. The duo’s performance far outshone a minimalist medley from The Weeknd and a bizzare, gorilla-infused (seriously) performance by Coldplay.
”WTF” will be the lead single for Missy’s to-be-named seventh album. Check out the performance above.
