The Voice’s Katrina Parker on Smelling Adam Levine and Being Compared to Adele
Team Adam contestant Katrina Parker can breathe a sigh of relief for the time being. This Tuesday, April 10, Adam saved Katrina from the bottom three of The Voice after her rendition of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak.”
Katrina’s success has been fairly surprising since Adam was the only judge to turn for her in the blind auditions. She then beat former judge favorite Angel Taylor in her battle round — an act that caught her completely by surprise.
During the battle rounds, coach Christina Aguilera compared her look and sound to Grammy winner Adele.
“Oh, God, I couldn't be more flattered,” Katrina said in an interview with The Huffington Post.
“[Adele]'s so popular right now, for good reason, and she's incredible, and I'd like to think, even though we're not carbon copies of each other, when I hear her singing, I hear the emotional connection to the music she's singing so much so that she can bring people to tears, and I would like to think that some part of me is like that.”
And while, yes, Adele is successful, she doesn’t get to work with hottie Adam Levine! Though Katrina claims their relationship is very professional, she can’t help but notice his finer qualities.
“He's very well-groomed, and yes, he smells very good, but I'm a professional,” she said. “I can't see him that way, and I keep my composure. He looks as good, if not better than, a cover of a magazine, and is an even better person, but he's my coach, you know what I'm sayin'?”
We commend you Katrina, but we’re not sure if we could keep our cool in Mr. Levine’s presence.
