In the Knockout Rounds of Season 13 of The Voice, rocker Chloe Kohanski lost her spot on Team Miley to fellow contestant Ashland Craft. However, her journey did not stop there, both Blake Shelton and Jennifer Hudson jumping at the opportunity to steal her, the Nashville-native inevitably going on to choose Shelton.
Back in the blind auditions, Shelton had attempted to persuade her to join his team following her striking rendition of Fleetwood Mac‘s “Chain,” Kohanski revealing she’s “obsessed with Miley” and chose the “Younger Now” singer to be her coach. Proving he made the right decision to take a chance on her, the recently-named Voice champion went on to earn Shelton his sixth win as a coach.
Following her massive win, the 23-year-old met up with Hollywood Life to discuss her feelings on the country singer that helped steer her towards the winner’s circle.
“He took a risk with me and I hope I made him proud,” said Chloe, before continuing, “The things he has said to me, I don’t take lightly. Every week, he says something that makes me want to pass out. He says the biggest things to me that I have ever heard. Tonight he had a lot to say, I don’t remember all of it, but I know he said that I have an iconic voice and that just means the world to me!”
We’re sure she made Shelton more than proud.
Prior to auditioning for The Voice, Kohanski went to college on track to be an English teacher before deciding to risk everything and pursue a career in music.
