News Americas, LOS ANGELES, CA, Weds. Nov. 12, 2014: Will Jamaica’s Anita Antoinette move on? That’s the question on the minds of many of her fans but Antoinette will have to wait tonight to know her fate – whether she has advanced into the Top 12 of NBC reality music show, ‘The Voice’ or not.
The Jamaican-born, Connecticut-based singer last night thrilled fans with a dynamic presentation of ‘All About That Bass’ during the first live performance of the season last night, Nov. 11th.
Antoinette showed a fun, upbeat personality without downplaying the fact that she has a powerful voice. The train musician combined her talent for reggae with pop in song while working the stage like a pro much to the surprise of coaches, Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams and Blake Shelton.
Antoinette undoubtedly took her coach Gwen Stefanie’s advise seriously and delivered in a booty shaking, engaging performance that got the in studio crowd excited and fans at home energized enough to download the song.
This morning, Antoinette was riding at #76 on the iTunes all-genre single sales chart even as she ended by topping the app votes last night for Team Gwen at the end of the show.
Voting is still open and will be until noon ET today. Vote at www.nbc.com/the-voice/vote
Results will be revealed at 8 p.m. ET tonight, Nov. 12, 2014.
