How to Support Colts Neck’s Jacquie Lee on The Voice
Jacquie Lee from Colts Neck is a finalist on NBC’s “The Voice” and will need your votes and support after her performance on Monday night.
She’ll take on Jamaican singer Tessanne Chin and Los Angeles musician Will Champlin in the season finale which NBC has made into a two-night spectacular with performances by Lady Gaga, OneRepublic, Celine Dion and Ne-Yo. Coaches Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and CeeLo Green will also team up for a performance.
Jacquie had learned ten songs for tonight and will perform with Aguilera and a “major singer.” Her dad Richard told Townsquare Media’s Liz Jeressi that the signers always rehearse extra songs but never know which ones or how many they will use til the live show. He added that sometimes they even change the order that the contestants will sing at the last minute.
Viewer voting begins on a number of different platforms when the show is over at 10 p.m. and continue through 11 a.m. on Tuesday. It will be up to viewers to cast their votes and to also download Lee’s song on iTunes. Both will play a factor in measuring support that will translate to votes. A phone number will also be given during the show.
Jacquie’s dad says that the contestant who has the most cumulative iTunes sales (from the beginning of the competition) will get a multiplier bonus of votes for the finale, so now is the time to purchase all of the songs that Jacquie has performed!
A poll on the website Wetpaint.com gives Chin the lead with Lee and Champlin finishing second and third respectively. The site says Lee is talented but holds her age against her in some of her song selections. “She’s been singing a lot about heartache but can’t quite seem to connect to that considering she’s never been in love,” writes Wetpaint’s Marnie Brodersen
I Play America in Freehold and CentraState Healthcare System are hosting two viewing parties on Monday for the final show and on Tuesday night when the winner is announced. MJ’s at the Buttonwood in Matawan, which has hosted viewing parties all season, will do the same.
The Ranney School student has always been a Christina Aquilera fan and was excited to be on “Team Aquilera” during the show and developed a friendship with the singer. “She’s so eloquent and so poised… sometimes she’s my coach. I’m not even kidding,” Aquilera told Access Hollywood. “[Jacquie] has this inner drive and passion that, in my experience on the show, I have not seen yet. She’s a star in the making.”
It’s been a whirlwind for the 16-year-old according to her mother Denise. “It’s insane, but it’s all fun,” mom Denise said. “She’s not complaining,” she told the New York Post. Denise has been with Jacquie in Los Angeles for the entire time this fall.
Catch Up To The Voice
Jacquie,the youngest competitor on the show, had to make it through several rounds of competition.The Voice is an American Idol-like reality show with a twist: during the show’s auditions the coaches sit in big chairs turned away from the singer so they are judging them soley on the voice and not looks. They then select members for their team for a total of 48 contestants that compete with each other over 13 weeks.
The winner receives a recording contract from Republic Records.
