Is Serena Williams heading to The Voice soon? Looks like she’s already done a dry run of her audition.
CeeLo Green, a judge on the NBC talent show, revealed on Conan on Wednesday that Williams insisted on singing for him when the two saw each other at an NFL game between the Falcons and Dolphins two weeks ago in Miami. (Williams owns a small stake in the Dolphins.)
Williams asked to sing for him, according to Green, but not before he turned his back to her, like he does on the show, where hopefuls are judged solely on their voice and not how they look. After a few nervous false starts, she finally gave him a rendition of Oleta Adams’ Get Here.
So how did Serena fare?
“You know what, it really wasn’t bad,” Green said. “She’s got a very decent voice. She’s cool.”
