THE VOICE Top 5: Behind-the-Scenes at the iTunes Recording Session

December 10, 2013 by  

While THE VOICE contestants have to get on stage every Monday night and sing their hearts out with the hopes of getting your votes, there’s another key factor — the iTunes recording session.

Every week, the contestants go to a recording studio in Burbank, where they record their iTunes version of the song they’ll sing live for the next round of THE VOICE.

THE VOICE’s top 5 spoke with reporters late last week while they were recording their songs about what they were singing, their recording studio experiences, and whether they preferred tackling one song or two…

On her song, "Bridge Over Troubled Water":"I wasn't sure [about doing it], but [Adam] had that determined look in his eye he gets when nothing I say will go through when he has that look. I think it's a great song. It's a classic. I'm glad that he trusts me with that."

On doing one song this week versus two: "I think sometimes less is more. Adam said something very true: we worked very hard to prove that I can sing and why I deserve to be here, and why I've earned my right to be here. So I don't think this song is about trying to over sing or overproduce. [The song] is flawless to me as it is, and that's why I think it's a classic. It's a beautiful song. So it's just about getting up there with a mike and singing a beautiful the end of the day, if I can move you with a wonderful big orchestra, that's wonderful, but if I can move you with a mike and the least amount of backing, I think that's magical. Hopefully!"

On her recording studio experience: "It's different. I grew up around music, and my dad basically spent his last penny building a studio so we had somewhere to do that, but it was nothing like [what we have here]. Little different! I walked in there and I was like, 'Okay!' So it's different in the level of production -- no offense to Daddy or Jamaica -- but there's a difference."
