Erin Martin: First of all, I was up there and I was highly distracted, because there was a lot of stuff going on and Cee Lo turned around, and by the time they turned around, all four chairs were turned around. So, I wasn’t sure who had turned around. But, the audience cleared that up for me quickly. I knew Christina wouldn’t want to be my coach, just because I’m so unique. I guess you just listen to my voice, and you’re like, “What am I going to do with that? Like, it’s so weird and so out there.” It’s unique and honestly, Cee Lo turned around and he was like, “I just heard something that was so bizarre and unique and wonderful.” It was like, he couldn’t wrap his head around it, but he was willing to try. And for Adam, I think it was just so unique that he just couldn’t, you know, like when you hear something that’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard, it’s like seeing a new color. So, it’s like, you’re dumbfounded for a second, and you’re like, “What is that?”
But I just feel the amount of time that you have to put two-and-two together, it just wasn’t enough time for him to just wrap his head around what he was hearing. And I don’t think it was bad. I just think it was just unique. And I honestly thought he was going to turn around. I thought that all the coaches were going to be open to new horizons, and I thought that I had something really cool and different to offer, because they were looking for something really cool and different and unique, and that it like the embodiment of my voice. And, you know, he said he liked it, but he just couldn’t figure it out, so I was like, “Adam, why didn’t you turn around?”, because I don’t know.
Jordis, what was it about The Voice that made you want to audition for it, as compared to maybe The X Factor or even American Idol? And why did you choose Team Blake?
I had just gotten released from a record deal and within a few weeks the opportunity to audition came up. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to do it.
My voice is what has always been the driving force and I really, after that experience, needed that reminder. And to be honest, I was terrified. But, I spent a lot of time in L.A., and I don’t care you are, it can brainwash you a little bit. So when I hit that stage, I just wanted to do what was in my heart, and it came off really well, I think.
