On Monday night’s performance finale of The Voice, finalists Andrew Sevener, Dexter Roberts, Gyth Rigdon and Maelyn Jarmon squared off for the final time before the winner is crowned. The contestants were each asked to sing a solo cover, a new song and a duet with their respective coach.
I caught up with Maelyn Jarmon on the red carpet immediately after the show to get her take on her final competitive performances of the season. I told Maelyn that I ran into her entire family as they were staying at the same LA hotel that I was and she discussed the amount of support she has back home. I told Maelyn that I saw her as the Daenerys of the competition as she was the only female in this year’s finale and was squaring off against three male members of Team Blake and we chatted about whether this was an advantage or disadvantage. We talked about how The Voice is almost always dominated by country artists and if Maelyn felt like she was bringing something different to the table. I asked Maelyn if she thought that her closing cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ was her best performance of the night. Finally, we chatted about her rapport with John Legend.
