. . . She did get to perform Pat Benatar's "Love Is a Battlefield" with a troupe of child dancers/martial artists and her coach, Cee Lo Green, dressed up like a giant Satanic rooster. It was bizarre, and also really awesome. Martinez and Green's duet closed Tuesday night's show, during which she also sang an original song written for her called "Afraid to Sleep." As all the show's judges noted, Martinez gave the performance everything she had, but on last night's finale show, Javier Colon was announced the winner of Season 1. Regardless of the results, throughout the season Martinez proved to a national audience just what a powerhouse vocalist she is; it was endearing to see how much Cee Lo invested in her career and to hear him speak of how he believed Martinez was a fine example of a motivated and clearly empowered female artist.
She also sang that Train song with that Train guy.
Vicci Martinez is a beautiful badass, and we're sure her star will only continue to rise in the wake of her Voice exposure. And she's got a slew of local concerts coming up all around the PNW. Check them all out on her official website.
P.S. You can buy Vicci and Cee Lo's version of "Love Is a Battlefield" on iTunes right now.
