Note: Spoilers ahead if you didn’t watch Tuesday’s elimination show.
Team Blake contender, teenager Michaela Paige, and Team Christina singer, Adriana Louise, were both given the axe on the show as America took full control of the competition. While both contestants were visibly upset on the red carpet after their eliminations, the ladies also appeared wholly optimistic. In fact, Louise says Christina Aguilera’s words to her had her feeling extra good.
“She was just telling me, you know, this is the beginning and to not give up,” said the 22-year-old to Celebuzz. ”And that she believes in me, so that’s awesome. She’s like, ‘You’re a superstar.’ So for her to say that I’m good, I’m good. I can go back home to New York City and start working.”
When the singer heads home to the East Coast, she told us she’ll take a moment or “a couple of days” to relax. After that, she’ll get right back into gear and revealed, “A couple of people have reached out to me, so I’m excited to see what happens. I’m ready to work, work, work.”
She continued: “I’ve never put myself out there before. This is the first time I have and look what greatness happened – I mean, Top 12 on The Voice, never thought that was going to happen, so let’s see what else can happen if I actually put myself out there.”
In honor of her coach’s album release – Aguilera’s Lotus dropped Tuesday – Louise took to the stage donning a dress with a Lotus pattern. “The second I saw it as an option, I was like, ‘Is that going to be for the actual results show?’ …. I was like, ‘That’s for the day her album drops and it’s a lotus.’ And they were like, ‘Oh really.’ And I was like, ‘Yes please, please, please, can I wear it?’”
While on the red carpet after the show, Aguilera gushed about Louise’s beauty and dress. She also joked, “Girls were probably hating on that. She had an unfair advantage … too much to look at.”
The Voice live shows continue Monday and Tuesdays at 8 PM ET/ tape delayed PT.
