REALITY CORNER: Q&A: Contestants from The Voice (Javier, Beverly, Tyler and Nakia) Prepare for the Battle Round
May 10th, 2011
I gave up on Idol years ago, so when The Voice came along, I was unsure how to feel about it. I’ll tell you this: I was completely surprised by just how much I loved it. Seriously, it’s pretty fantastic. So when the opportunity arose for a media call with some of the contestants, I knew my resident reality guru Lindsey would jump at the chance. Check it out!
The so-called “Battle Round” episode of NBC’s The Voice is upon us, and tonight will inevitably be the night that determines whether or not the show will actually give Idol a run for it’s money. Now that the “blind audition” aspect is over (which is coincidentally the entire premise of the show), will The Voice have legs to stand on? Over the last two weeks, we’ve watched a country star, a lady-crazy one-hit-wonder, a Dolly Parton impersonator (Ed. Note: HA!) and the hottest man in the world (Ed. Note: Good call) duke it out over contestants to join their respective teams. We had the chance to talk to one contestant from each team about how they’re handling the pressure going into tonight’s Battle Round. We learned a lot of interesting things – like Beverly’s addiction to Mountain Dew and why Nakia chose a Cee Lo song – so read on to find out more!
