Season finale of US series also brought performances from Coldplay and The Weeknd
Missy Elliott and Pharrell performed new single ‘WTF (Where They From)’ live for the first time by appearing on The Voice last night.
Coldplay also appeared on the US show’s season finale and performed ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’ while The Weeknd did a medley of his hits ‘The Hills’, ‘Earned It’, and ‘Can’t Feel My Face’.
Elliott last released an album in 2005 in the form of ‘The Cookbook’, and her last singles were a pair of iTunes-only releases in 2012. However, she is expected to release a new record in 2016.
The rapper signalled her comeback earlier this year with a headline set at Bestival and a Superbowl performance cameo alongside Katy Perry.
Pharrell called her after the Katy Perry performance to convince her to work with him. She recently told The Guardianthat she didn’t take a lot of convincing.
“By that point I was back at my house washing dishes and vacuuming my floor! I’ve got my scarf on my head! And then Pharrell called. He said: “If you would have it, I would like to get in the studio with you.” And I was like: “This is Pharrell, am I gonna be non-busy? I’m vacuuming my floor!” So I said OK,” Elliott explained.
