UPDATES FROM CASEY WESTON'S TWITTER ACCOUNT
In her second performance on NBC’s “The Voice,” local singer Casey Weston proved her coach Adam Levine right.
“Casey Weston is a badass,” Levine said. “She doesn’t know how good she is yet. And the more she figures out how good she is it’s going to be scary.”
Weston showed her potential singing “Leather & Lace” with fellow competitor Tim Mahoney during the battle round that eliminated one of them.
Levine picked the 18-year-old Gulf Coast High senior.
“There is just something about Casey Weston. I have to go with Casey Weston,” the Maroon 5 lead singer said.
Weston now advances to the live shows where the public will vote for who stays and who goes home. The live shows start on June 7.
After the performance, an ecstatic Weston greeted her screaming parents.
“I’m going to the live show,” Weston said while holding her parents.
Weston also received some raving endorsements from the other celebrity coaches.
Blake Shelton said Weston’s voice was addicting and he wanted to hear more.
And Cee-Lo Green said to Weston, “You remind me of a young Stevie Nicks.”
But Green went on to say that he was partial to Mahoney’s unique voice. Levine went against Green’s suggestion.
After admitting to being nervous during the initial blind auditions, Weston sounded confident about moving on.
“I want to win,” said Weston before the performance adding that she wanted to make Levine proud of the second shot he gave her.
Levine made Weston one of the 32 survivors in the new NBC talent show.
Weston actually didn’t get selected in the first round of the “blind auditions” when she sang Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.”
But fortunately for Weston the teams of eight were not filled through the first auditions, she and seven others got to impress the celebrity coaches a second time.
But that was just the start.
The NBC series, which kicked-off April 26 with a two-hour taped episode, sets itself apart from other similar talent shows with an unexpected twist: Contestants are initially heard but not seen by a panel of pop stars.
The pros themselves competed to assemble a team of would-be pop stars, with the goal of guiding one toward a record contract and a $100,000 prize.
“The Voice” is modeled after Holland’s vocal talent discovery show, “The Voice of Holland” and is hosted by Carson Daly.
