Frost native Hunter Plake advances to top 12 on 'The Voice'

Posted April 20, 2017

In fact, before he stepped onstage for his Blind Audition for season 12 of The Voice, Hunter had never sung outside of his church.

And the 51-year-old singer says his music was very "depressing" following his split from Stefani but thinks he has found a good balance now. I still get nervous. The performance impressed his coach, who said that it was a confident performance and she was incredibly proud of him. It's insane. Anything can happen, you know? "You're so up and so positive, and I love being around you and learning from you as well". "I can't imagine what they [the artists] feel like".

Another judge, Adam Levine may follow suit as well. Levine then had to choose from his four eliminated acts - Hanna Eyre, Johnny Hayes, Mark Isaish and Josh West - to also take on to the next round. I'm so thankful to everyone around me who helped me this year, it was a magical time.

Yes, we imagine "a considerable amount of money" is involved in every season of the show.

When Gwen Stefani joined the cast of The Voice during Season 7, she and Blake Shelton struck up a friendship but nothing more due to the fact that they were now married to Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert, respectively. Blake Shelton and Alicia Keys' teams performed on Monday. With its message of empowerment and lyrics like "So keep on climbing, though the ground might shake / Just keep on reaching though the limb might break / We've come this far, don't you be scared now / 'Cause you can learn to fly on the way down", it's no wonder Brown selected it to prove herself on the singing show. It's hard to do that when you're on TV doing a performance and there's a lot to learn about being on TV and doing performances, so we talk about that.

Stefani, of course, was loving Shelton's remorse.

"Now is when I switch into my winning strategy, and you know I can't give those secrets away", he joked. I mean, my god! Gwen felt like she was watching Troy at his own show.

"Like, really keeping the lanes clear so that there's one person that people can vote on", she said. "So I had to try and find a balance, which I think I have".
