Fylde coast singing sensation Emily Adams admits the stakes are “massive” for her now after she won through to the live rounds of the hit reality TV show The Voice.
18-year-old Emily managed to wow the judges on the BBC1 programme with a fantastic rendition of Stooshe’s Slip on Sunday night, meaning she now goes through to the next stage of the series – furthering her chances of glory.
Emily admitted she was disappointed with her own performance on the programme, but has now vowed to impress her vocal coach Ricky Wilson (of Kaiser Chiefs fame) after winning through.
She said: “The stakes are massive for me, I can’t wait to get started and show everyone what I can do.
“I was disappointed with my knockout performance, so I really want to make up for it and make Ricky proud that he chose me.”
Emily, who went to AKS, has been gigging around the Fylde coast for the last five years.
In the knockout phase, the four judges (Kylie Minogue, Will.i.am, Ricky Wilson and Sir Tom Jones) enter the stage with seven team members – the six winners of the battle phase, and one stolen member.
Artists will perform a ‘killer song’ of their choosing, and the coaches picked three members of their team to go through to the live shows, to create a final 12 for the public vote.
Emily, now in that final 12, will compete to win her way through to the final from here.
On a sabbatical from AKS while she’s competing in The Voice, the Cleveleys girl is working at Questa, an independent financial advisors based at Whitehills Business Park.
Her coach, Ricky Wilson, is best known as lead singer of Leeds-based band Kaiser Chiefs.
They first burst on to the scene in 2004 with hit singles Oh My God and I Predict A Riot – and reached Number One in the charts with Ruby three years later.
Their latest album Education, Education, Education And War is due to be released on March 31.
