Fil-Am Amy Vachal gets second life in ‘The Voice US’
Filipino-American singer Amy Vachal got a second life in the ninth season of “The Voice” after losing in the first Knockout Round to her teammate Madi Davis.
During Tuesday’s (Philippine time) episode, Vachal sang the Etta James hit “A Sunday Kind of Love” while Davis sang Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You.”
Team coach Pharell Williams said that he paired both singers because they have “delicate” voices.
As Williams pondered his decision, coach Gwen Stefani praised both singers, saying that she “could listen to their voices all day.”
Adam Levine told Vachal that he regretted not turning his chair for her while Blake Shelton said that he has been a huge fan of the Fil-Am singer from day one.
Faced with a difficult decision, Williams eventually chose the 16-year-old Davis.
Immediately after the announcement, Levine and Shelton pressed their buttons to “steal” Vachal.
The country superstar was the first one who persuaded Vachal to join his team, reminding her that he pressed his button for her from the blind auditions.
“I remembered begging. I believe you are a star. You are still one of my favorite artists who ever auditioned for this show ever. And I won this show a bunch of times,” Shelton said.
On his part, Levine said that he is excited to have an opportunity to work with Vachal.
“Listen, during the blind auditions, I thought: ‘Wow this girl can win this whole thing and I didn’t have the chance.’ So I feel that I really missed out. But now, I feel I know what to do to really help you thrive. I believe you can win this whole thing,” he said.
Vachal eventually chose Levine.
Joining Vachal and Davis in the live Playoffs are Blaine Mitchell from Team Adam, Braiden Sunshine and Viktor Kiraly from Team Gwen, Barrett Baber, Ivonne Acero and Jordan Smith from Team Blake. AJH/RAM
