Final 8 sing Monday night on 'The Voice'
UNDATED (WHDH) -- NBC's singing competition series ‘The Voice’ is down to its final eight performers, and by late Tuesday night that number will be cut in half.
All eight remaining contestants will sing Monday night, and America will vote overnight to send four of them to next week’s finals.
For Jamar Rogers, being one of ‘The Voice’s final eight is a shock.
"It's surreal,” he said. “I'd like to say that it's my dreams coming true, but I didn't dream any of this."
Neither did Juliet Simms, even though she's been trying to get the music world's attention since she was 15.
"It feels like the many, many, many years of being the underdog is finally starting to dissipate," she said.
And regardless of how she fares from here, Katrina Parker's days at a desk job are probably over.
"When I stay, it's a beautiful surprise,” she said. “So, I'm giddy."
But as the singers move on, the preparation and the pressure escalate.
"There's all the circumstance that surrounds each performance, but as soon as we open our mouths to sing, I think that's when we're all most comfortable," Tony Lucca said.
As comfortable as you can be, that is, with millions of eyes watching.
“It's all about the song, all about the choice, all about the moment,” Adam Levine said. “There's like 50 different variables to contribute to the success of these guys."
"Who knows? Somebody may pull a rabbit out of a hat,” Cee-Lo Green said.
A combination of viewers' votes and coach's scores, based on Monday night's performance, will determine which four of the eight singers will move on to next week's final.
