Amber Carrington Shines With ‘Good Girl’ on ‘The Voice’
Hailing from Rockwall, Texas, 19-year-old Amber Carrington is a country girl through and through, and she proved it on ‘The Voice’ tonight (April 9) with a passionate rendition of ‘Good Girl’ by Carrie Underwood. She clearly would have been a perfect match for Blake Shelton, but since he already rounded out his team earlier in the episode, another coach snatched her up.
Carrington lost her mother to breast cancer, but she has chosen to serve her mom’s memory by pursuing her love of music. Her soulful, energized vocal delivery made Shelton regret that he couldn’t hit his buzzer. “Steal her, Usher…steal her!” he urged his fellow coach. But it was ultimately Adam Levine who turned his chair for her.
“You nailed it, you really did, and I hate Adam right now,” remarked Shelton. “You’re gonna be one of the biggest surprises of this entire competition.”
Although Levine wasn’t the young singer's first pick for a coach, he wound up being her only option, and she seemed pleased with how things turned out. “I think it’s gonna be good, you know, to get out of my comfort zone and to work with somebody who doesn’t do country music,” she said of the Maroon 5 frontman. “He’s gonna broaden my horizons.”
She may be on Team Adam for now, but we have a sneaking suspicion that Shelton will be keeping an eye out for an opportunity to steal her.
