Last week after her exit from “The Voice,“ booted contestant Erin Martin blamed her elimination on her coach, Cee-Lo Green, saying that he didn’t nurture her art and didn’t choose the right songs for her to sing.
This week, Zap2it spoke with fellow contestants Cheesa and Katrina Parker, both of whom were saved by their coaches after America failed to save them in the elimination round. We had to ask them about their experiences working with the coaches and whether Erin was right about the coaches interfering with creativity.
“It’s a collaborative effort,” Cheesa says. “If you don’t feel comfortable, they’re always there to listen to your opinions. Sometimes you’ve just got to trust them, though. It’s a win win situation. You never know which way to go.”
“Collaborative is a good word for it,” Katrina added. “They usually are pretty on-point. Everything that Adam [Levine] has said to me in rehearsal, everything Adam intended for me for this song, I wanted to do. It was a stretch. You can’t stay comfortable.”
Watch the video below for more from the singers, including details on how it felt to “sing for their lives” in the elimination show.
