Celica Westbrook Sings ‘A Thousand Years’ To Make Team Christina on ‘The Voice’

A third generation singer, Westbrook was close to fame once before. At 14, she was offered a record deal and was told she’d join Justin Bieber on tour, but as luck would have it, none of her (nor her family’s) dreams panned out the way they expected it to.
Westbrook’s rendition of Christina Perri‘s ‘A Thousand Years’ was shaky at best, but Cee Lo, Christina, and Blake all felt she was worthy enough of their last spots. The 16-year-old was good, but she wasn’t anything special; but given the fact that a crew just so happened to film at her house during the interview before her audition, we knew she was going to get through.
Christina gave Westbrook a standing ovation after she finished, presumably to get her to choose her as a coach because she certainly wasn’t standing ovation worthy. Then she upped the ante by telling Westbrook her voice “needed to be on the radio like … now,” and we were left with Frosted Flakes falling out of our mouths, because what the heck?!
But it looks like Christina’s tactics worked, because Westbrook wound up choosing her as a coach, officially closing out Xtina’s team.
