NBC’s ‘The Voice’ season 6 promo: Christina Grimmie auditions for Shakira, coachesJanuary 26, 2014
Is Christina Grimmie the most-famous person who has auditioned for “The Voice” since the beginning of its run? We imagine that in the end, so much of that is subjective. The show has welcomed on it before the voice of Tommy Pickles in E.G. Daily, and Kaley Cuoco’s younger sister Briana.
The only big difference between Grimmie and these two is that she is a name who has actually been around the singing-show circuit for a little while, in addition to some of the young stars that are currently hot in the industry. She has toured with Selena Gomez, and back during “American Idol” season 11, she made a series of YouTube videos helping to chronicle their journey touring across the country.
Does all of this really matter when it comes to Christina going far on the show? Maybe. It will at lest get her some screen time during the early rounds, but you also cannot discount the fact that she is talented.
If this was one of the other talent shows that is out there, of course we would be in some sort of uprising about contestants who we have already heard of. But, we like to think of “The Voice” more as entertainment, and a competition between singers who are looking for that little bump to get over the top. Cassadee Pope is one great example of that, as is Judith Hill. It gives them a shot to stretch your musical influences, and really figure out what works best for them in the future. Sometimes, you really need that guidance in what is a fiercely-competitive music industry these days.
