Xenia Sticks to the Script on ‘The Voice’
Xenia won Blake Shelton over with her performance of the Script's 'Breakeven' during her initial audition on 'The Voice,' so she decided to try to win America over with the Script's 'The Man Who Can't Be Moved' on the show's semifinals tonight.
"I love this song and I really want this chance to connect with the audience," said the shy 16-year-old high school student of the Script tune.
"This is your chance to think about being that voice of your generation," Shelton told her. "You can change the sound of what's popular."
"I'm only 16, and having [Shelton] tell me that I'm representing my whole generation makes me feel so excited to be here," Xenia proudly said.
As with her previous performances, Xenia didn't show a lot of flash or move around that much. Instead, she let her smooth, jazzy vocals take the spotlight the Script song.
The three other coaches remarked on the uniqueness of the tone of her voice, with Christina Aguilera complimenting the "level of maturity" of her voice. Shelton told his team member that one day when he's back in Oklahoma driving his truck, he expects to hear her voice on the radio -- and will be glad that he knew her way back when.
