Sonia Rao Chases Dream Again With Adele’s ‘Chasing Pavements’ on ‘The Voice’

Sonia Rao

Sonia Rao didn’t get the coaches’ approval when she sang Alicia Keys‘ ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ on the first episode of ‘The Voice,’ but she got a second chance with her performance of Adele‘s ‘Chasing Pavements.’

With the coaches still needing members to fill out their teams, host Carson Daly announced that some of the contestants would be given a second chance at winning a spot on ‘The Voice.’

“Everything on this show so far has been so intense emotionally,” said Rao, a 24-year-old from Freehold, N.J. “And especially with a second chance, you feel it more cause they bring you back. I want this. I really, really want this.”

By the time Rao took the stage,  Adam Levine and Blake Shelton were the only coaches who still needed team members. Despite singing her heart out, Rao once again was rejected by the coaches. Both Levine and Shelton were visibly upset when they turned around to see it was Rao, who remarked, “It hurts as much the second time.”
