EXCLUSIVE: RaeLynn Off The Voice, On Target For Country Career

raelynn

The Voice rolls on without RaeLynn.  But don’t waste a second worrying about the spunky 17-year-old.  She may be off the show, but she’s well on her way to a career in country.

The native of Baytown, Texas reached the quarterfinals before being eliminated at the end of last week’s results show.  America voted to save Jermaine Paul, which forced her and Erin Willett to sing for Team Blake’s remaining spot in the semi-finals.  RaeLynn’s version of “If I Die Young” by The Band Perry was sweet, but not sweet enough.  In the end, coach Blake Shelton made the tough (and for many, unexpected) call of cutting the country singer.

During her time on The Voice, RaeLynn was called everything from country cutie to heartbreaker to badass.  Whatever you call her, don’t call her done.  Elimination doesn’t mark the end for RaeLynn.  Instead, it signals the start of her next step.  From what we’re learned about RaeLynn, expect that step to be a big one.  She’s a spitfire who won’t be stopped.

In the following interview, we talked about the elimination, how she faced the music afterwards in the press room, handling the haters, a special “taste” of home and what lies ahead.

The Voice‘s battle rounds are now complete, and six members from each team are moving on to the live shows.

Coach Blake Shelton paired Naia up against country boy, Jordan Rager. The amazingly talented Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert were there once again to help mentor the team.

For the battle, Naia and Jordan performed Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.” As the coaches pointed out, we have seen better from both contestants and their full skills were not on display this round. When it was time for Blake to make a decision, he decided to advance Naia to the live shows.

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 7

The Voice

The battle rounds are coming to an end on The Voice, and Team Blake is almost complete!

This week, we saw Jermaine Paul up against ALyX and Erin Willett versus Gwen Sebastian. Two of our favorite girls, Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert, were back to mentor and assist the team. Jermain and Erin got some help from Kelly, while ALyX and Gwen worked with Miranda.

Jermaine vs. ALyX

Jermaine and ALyX performed Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” for their battle. Both did a great job and it was a solid fight, but Coach Blake Shelton decided to go with Jermaine.

Jermaine is a seasoned performer with such professionalism and killer voice. He had me the whole round, and I felt like I was at his own concert.

Congratulations to Jermaine! We can’t wait to see you next round. Also, good luck to ALyX! We are sure she will have success.

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 10

The Voice

Let’s catch up with Team Blake!

Last week on The Voice was an emotional time for Coach Blake Shelton and the contestants with two eliminations.

RaeLynn, Jordis, Erin, and Jermaine took the stage last Monday giving us some great performances. At the end of the show, however, Blake had to make an elimination live on the spot. He decided to let the previous rounds’ votes dictate the outcome and let Jordis go home. That left RaeLynn, Erin, and Jermaine to compete for America’s votes.

On last Tuesday’s results show, it was announced that Jermaine was the highest vote-getter for Team Blake. RaeLynn and Erin were in jeopardy and both had to perform for their life. It was a tough decision for Blake, but he chose to save Erin.

And then there were two….

Tune in next Monday on NBC at 8/7c to support Jermaine & Erin. Go Team Blake!
