The Voice 2013’s Amy Whitcomb Says Her Time on The Sing-Off Prepared Her
April 23 gave us the last night of battle rounds for the contestants on The Voice 2013. Team Adam’s pop singer Amy Whitcomb got very little time to shine, as her duet with Agina Alvarez to was montaged with a couple other battles. Nevertheless, Amy sung her way into the knockout rounds joining the remaining seven members on Adam’s team. Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with the leopard-print clad contestant who praised her experience on NBC’s other music competition show The Sing-Off, which focuses on acapella groups,for preparing her for her journey on The Voice.
“As different as the experiences have been, I definitely don’t think I would be prepared for The Voice had I not done The Sing-Off,” Amy said.
The singer went on to say “I think a lot of contestants are thinking they’re entering a singing competition and they’re really entering a TV show. And it’s different — it’s a different industry.”
Amy and her acapella group BYU Noteworthy made their way into Season 1 of The Sing-Off. When her group was eliminated, she and few other eliminated female vocalists created a group called Delilah, and she returned to Season 3 of the show. As you can imagine, Amy’s experience harmonizing with other voices on a stage definitely came in handy during the battle rounds.
“I was glad that I was able to come into it and not be blindsided by the fact that they’re still trying to make a great TV show,” Amy said. “Not to mention the singing experience on big stages like that and with a bunch of cameras that was huge too because I think I would’ve been even more terrified on stage than I already was.”
Now that we’re on to the knockout rounds, we hope to see a lot more of Amy and what her voice has to offer Adam’s team. Do you like what you’ve seen of Amy thus far? Tell us below!
