When Gina Miles won the 23rd season of THE VOICE, she joined an elite group: She and her coach Niall Horan became only the fourth singer-coach duo to win on the coach’s first season with the series. (After season 1’s Adam Levine-Javier Colon, season 14’s Kelly Clarkson-Brynn Cartelli, and season 16’s John Legend-Maelyn Jarmon.)

“It’s kind of cool,” Miles tells Give Me My Remote with a laugh in the video below. Of getting to work with Horan, who has his own (notable) experience on a competition series, “It’s really fun and his friendship is something that’s a very special thing to me. And to have gone through this process with him, it’s just been a blast…It was also so nice to work with somebody that I got along with so, so well. We’re very similar and we’re very easygoing, so it’s just super nice to work with him as well as just hang out and be pals.”

During her time on the series, Miles had several memorable performances, but she points to her Playoff number as a turning point.

“I think ‘Wicked Game’ was one of my biggest ones,” she notes. “And I think it’s the one that kind of popped me out a little bit…I was doing, I thought, pretty well, and then that one came out and it did really well. I was really excited that people liked it and people could see me getting more comfy on stage.”

The singer got to embrace two different sides of herself during the performance finale, too: Tackling Taylor Swift’s “Style” and “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which was most famously performed by Sinéad O’Connor.

With “Style,” Miles acknowledges she wanted to do a pop song “because I am a pop girl.”

“I think the only true-true pop song that I had gotten to sing was the Katy Perry [number] ‘The One That Got Away,’ and I feel like I just did not do it justice the way that I had hoped,” she says. “So I wanted to have sort of my full-circle pop moment—and singing none other than the storyteller of pop.”

“I know that maybe vocally it wasn’t the most exciting thing ever, but I wanted to perform,” she continues. “I wanted to have fun. I wanted to have a song that people could move to…sometimes you just want to dance and have fun…I had a blast for that performance.”

Calling “Nothing Compares 2 U” her “grand song,” Miles admits “that’s an enormous song.” “It was a really, really, really fun one to do,” she says. “And I’m happy that I got to do it. It’s really an honor. And it was really super fun.”

After her victory, Miles is still figuring out what comes next in her career.

“I just want to perform,” she says. “I want to make music and keep going. It’s a lot of momentum that the show gives you. And especially after this experience…I just want to keep doing things like working and singing and  performing. It’s my favorite thing.”
