If you were shocked at last night’s eliminations on The Voice, you’re not alone — even Top 12 finalist Adriana Louise was surprised at the results.

When Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with the Team Christina contestant on the red carpet after the Nov. 8 show, she exclaimed that it felt “amazing, surreal, and incredible” to be a finalist, and shared an inside look at the final moments before the big reveal.

“I just had the most bittersweet moment of my life. I was in the Bottom 3, and to my left was my best friend in the whole show [Devyn Deloera], and to the right, my roommate [De’Borah]. We just held hands and were squeezing each other and were like, ‘I love you, I love you, I love you’ to each other, and I didn’t see my name being called,” she shared.

“I didn’t see it in the realm of possibilities, so when Christina called my name and saved me — I don’t even remember,” she continued. “I think I collapsed to the ground and started crying. I didn’t see it happening in a million years, so it’s a bittersweet feeling.”

But that doesn’t mean she isn’t thrilled to be heading into the next stage of the competition. Xtina — who the 22-year-old contestant says has been her idol since she was 9 years old — has given her great advice, and Adriana definitely wants to prove herself.

So far, the pop diva’s wisest words of wisdom have been to “believe in myself and get out of my head,” she spilled. “I’m a really over-analytical person and really hard on myself and I think she saw that the second she met me … she’s totally given me a boost of confidence.”

And moving forward, Adriana’s strategy is to make “great song choices” to win over America.

“I think Christina said it herself: I haven’t gotten a chance to prove myself yet,” she admitted. “I’m ready to do that with some mega songs, and I hope I can do that.”

Were you surprised that Adriana made it into the Top 12? Weigh in below.
