While I got to talk to all of the contestants, except Team Blake's country star Josh due to time (which I was super sad about because he seems hilarious), unfortunately I didn't snap pictures of everyone. Here's a look at eight of the power-house singers in the Top 12 I did get photos of.
T.J. - Team Usher | Sisaundra - Team Blake
Audra - Team Blake | Bria - Team Usher
Dani - Team Shakira | Tess - Team Shakira
Kristen - Team Shakira | Josh - Team Usher
Every single person was extremely sweet and genuinely excited to be a part of The Voice. It's so refreshing to be around talent that has a real love for their craft! In addition to everyone professing their love for their coaches who really are invested in each contestant, a few common topics kept coming up: Adam smells amazing, the coaches are down to earth, meditation and staying calm before performances helps a lot, and if given the opportunity to perform with anyone, Stevie Wonder landed on the wish list more than once.
Since the very beginning Team Blake's Sisaundra has been a front runner to win it all. Her voice is unreal. Later that night I heard her sing live and I legit had goosebumps. It was so fun speaking with her. Check out the interview a fellow reporter and I conducted with her:
During the Top 12 concert hosted after the red carpet, each singer surprisingly sounded even more amazing than they do on TV! For awhile I thought they may be lip singing - they were all so perfect - so I intensely concentrating on their lips to see if anyone would slip up. I finally heard one or two contestants with very minor pitch issues (which probably only I heard since I was hoping for it) confirming that the were indeed belting out the songs. The level of talent is unreal! To be honest I was iffy on quite a few of the Top 12, partially since I'm bitter Jake from Team Adam is gone, but I have to give everyone credit - each contestant is worthy of winning Season 6.
