SYRACUSE, Utah – Three coaches turned their chairs Tuesday night for Utah resident James Violet.
The 20-year-old Syracuse resident brought laidback vibes to his performance and helped secure his spot on this season of “The Voice.”
Violet said he felt uncertainty and a little anxiety as he and his family watched the “Blind Auditions” on NBC’s talent competition Oct. 1.
“It’s just weird actually coming to fruition,” he said.
Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton all turned their chairs in hopes of mentoring the singer.
“It’s so surreal to have them first interacting with you, and then second fighting … for you to be on their team,” Violet said.
He eventually chose Stefani to be his mentor.
“It just felt right,” he said.
Violet will now head into the “Battles” episodes of the season.
He said he hopes he will inspire other Utahns to put themselves out there and showcase their talents.
“There (are) so many creative people here,” he said. “There (are) so many dreamers here. All we need is somebody to go out there and do it and show people that they can do it.”
