When I decided to audition for The Voice, I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. There’s a lot of rungs you have to climb before actually getting on the show. You meet all of these new, random people who end up becoming your best friends for the length of the show. You live together for months at a time and, you don’t see it all on the show, but when we say “we’re like a family,” it’s 100% true. It was a super long ride with all kinds of emotions. I think even though it’s a competition show, you truly lean on the bonds you make with the other contestants to survive it with all of your sanity still intact.
