WATCH: Fil-Am advances to ‘The Voice’ Knockout Rounds

/ 12:40 PM October 21, 2015

Filipino-American singer Amy Vachal advanced to the Knockout Rounds of “The Voice” USA after winning during the Battle Rounds of the competition on Tuesday, October 20 (Wednesday, Manila time).

Singing the Bee Gees hit “To Love Somebody,” Vachal was picked by her coach Pharrell Williams over rivals Jubal and Amanda.


He praised Vachal for her “delicate approach to songs.”


“I can only imagine people listening to your voice after having a really tough day, you just make everything feel like it’s gonna be all right. You are amazing,” Williams said.

Judge Gwen Stefani said their performance was “so beautiful,” but described Amy as a star, once again comparing her to Pocahontas.

“On my mind, her on her own, she is a star,” Stefani said, referring to Vachal.

Adam Levine said Vachal was “shining up there on (her) own.”

When it’s Blake Shelton’s turn to give his comments, he said it still hurts that Vachal didn’t pick him during the blind auditions.

“Amy, the most hurtful rejection I have ever had on this show is when you didn’t pick me in the blind auditions. It still hurts right now,” Shelton said.


During her blind auditions, Vachal got a standing ovation from the three judges.

The only coach who did not turn his chair for Vachal was Levine, who was apologetic for not turning around because his team was already full.
