We got to take part in a conference call with members of Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton’s teams this week and here’s what the teams shared with us about themselves and their experience so far on The Voice 2012.

Q: Okay, so my question is for all of you. I wanted to know how’s the experience of being on the show so far compared to what you expected?

Erin Willett:  Hi, this is Erin. I definitely didn’t expect as much second guessing – like a lot of – you only see what happens on television and you forget that, you know, there’s a lot of sitting around and waiting and, you know, marinating on your decisions – did I do that right, did I do it wrong. So, I think all that second guessing was something that I wasn’t prepared for but then you somehow – some sort of confidence with it all because you realize that you are one of a very few who get to be a part of this awesome show. So, yes, I think that was probably my biggest surprise in coming into the show and, yes.

Q: This is for Jordis primarily but anybody who wants to answer can jump in. What’s it like for you to actually see your blind audition on air and see the reaction of the coaches were having to you. What is it like to finally see that other side?

Jordis Unga:  It was absolutely bizarre actually. I think everybody would agree with me in that, you know, the stress levels during those blind auditions, like, you – I was totally zoned out. I don’t remember. Wow, I have feedback on my phone. But I don’t remember what the judges said to me. So, it was really fun to actually see what happened and the responses were amazing. I don’t know – it’s overwhelming and exciting and – I mean, I don’t really know what else to say beyond that — incredible.

Q:  A lot of you have gained a lot of fans online just overnight from seeing your audition. I mean, James, you got a tweet from Leah Remini from King of Queens. You’ve gotten a lot of people – I think someone offered to marry you. I’m pretty sure someone offered to marry you. How does it make you – if each of you all could talk about how it feels to have gained so many new fans and even some celebrity fans?

James Massone: Right, it’s amazing and, you know what? I didn’t even know that. I had no clue who tweeted me? I really didn’t notice that.

(It was Leah Remini from King of Queens.)

James Massone: Leah, oh wow! It’s kind of overwhelming. It’s a great feeling. I’m getting a lot of love right now and with love it comes with haters. The love is what I’m really taking in and I’m trying to soak everything in right now and it’s kind of like, it’s not really real right now to me. I’ve got to pinch myself a couple of times. But yes, everything’s amazing. Everything – all the compliments are amazing. That’s about it. That’s all I can say about that.

Q: Erin Willett, we really enjoyed how happy your father seemed to be that you’d gotten through this. And then I read here that he had passed recently. So, could you tell us when was it that you taped this one and how much after that did your dad pass and how much did this actually mean to him at the time before he passed?

Erin Willett:  We actually – am I allowed to say when we filmed this? I don’t know – somebody’s telling me. Okay. We filmed it in September from what I remember and he passed away in December – on December 19. So, it definitely was – first of all it was just a crazy experience watching him on the T.V. I knew that at the station from, you know, knowing that I was going to be off the episode. But it was definitely – it was awesome seeing, you know. And, you know, so many conversations happen behind the scene. It’s just like – him just being so proud of me and like, you know, sometimes as a child you sort of second guess that but especially like in a horrible situation like that, you really kind of take in every word he says and then – I just, you know, couldn’t be more thankful for this opportunity especially at that time.

And yes, it’s kind of weird not having him here now that the show has aired. But it’s kind of something that I know I can hold on to forever and I know that he had such an impact on the people around me at the show, you know, the people on the call right now, you know. I remember sitting with Jordis, talking to her and she was just like – she was sitting there crying with me, you know, when everything was going on. And it’s just – you realize how much a support from everybody is with each other on the show and it’s kind of like in a family because you spend so much time with each other. And, you know, our family was out there filming with us and so, it was really great for him to be a part of the experience, you know. Going with all the cameras and seeing the blind audition as it happened – he was so proud of me and – yes, it’s just awesome for him being able to see that.

Q: When you guys are up there and you’re singing and the chairs aren’t turning and suddenly you look and you see that somebody’s chair is turned around, does that change how you guys are performing? I mean, are you aware when the chair turns around and then do you suddenly go, “All right, I’m in. I’m going to give it more.” Or does it alter your performance in any way?

 James Massone: Yes. Well, I was just kind of going up there and I just kind of wanted to get the performance done. I didn’t think in any way that a chair would really turn for me to be honest. But yes, when the chair turned it – I mean, you kind of notice it with me. I don’t think I sang to my best potential once the chairs turned because I was just shocked that they even turned for me. When a face like that turns around and they’re watching you sing, it’s kind of overwhelming and it’s tough to take in, you know.

Sarah Golden: I remembered kind of it is crazy to watch because I really feel like I blacked out for the majority of the audition.

But I remembered just kind of feeling kind of calm-ish until starting to sing. And then as soon as the chair turned and I noticed it right away – when I got to kind of the “you and I” part, my voice totally cracked. I was like, “You and I” because I was just like, “Oh my gosh.” And it was just this – like trying to overturn that crazy rush of emotions and say, “Keep it together. You just have like 16 more seconds. Just don’t totally ruin the whole end of this.” It was definitely overwhelming to say the least in my opinion or in my case.

Brian Fuente:  It was like, you know, when Blake turned around it was like – I almost felt numb. It was just like – it was like – “Okay, this just happened.” You know, it was just – I went out there and I – it felt so amazing to be on the stage first of all but when that happened it was just like, “Okay, wow! I’m on this show. This is the real deal and this is the coolest feeling I’ve ever had.” And just the smile on Blake’s face was just – that was just so great. And just cool to be part of the, you know, part of the whole experience.

Q: Jordis, this is your second time at this. How did it feel to be on Rock Star and then have the years in between and now get another chance on the Voice?

Jordis Unga: I – it’s – you know, I don’t even know what to say about it. I mean, it’s absolutely incredible. And all those years in between Rock Star and the Voice – I mean, there were ups and downs. There were record deals. There weren’t. There were poor jobs. You know, like – it’s been such a journey for me to keep doing these for a living and to be able to – I mean, not a lot of people get as many chances as I’ve gotten. And to be in this position again – I’m so thankful and overwhelmed and it’s – it means a lot to me to be here and I think it means a lot to people who have followed me throughout the years and, you know, all my successes, all my failures. I’m just holding on tight to this one and take it as far as I can for sure. Yes, that’s it. It feels really good to be here.

Q:  Hi everybody. Thanks for your time. Jordis, I guess I have a similar question for you though I’m looking for a little bit different answer. But, you know, obviously, the singer we saw last night is significantly different than the one we saw on Rock Star) and (unintelligible). So, can you sort of tell us how you’ve gotten to this point, you know, musically and why sort of we’ve seen this change? Also, what do you hope to get from this show that maybe you didn’t get from that show?

Jordis Unga: I was really young when I did Rock Star. I think I was 22. And, you know, it’s been a lot of years. There’s been a lot of growth. There’s been a lot of changes. I’ve experimented with different types of music and, you know, different genres, different looks. Everybody’s wondering where the dreads are? I haven’t had those in – like – I haven’t had those in years. And yes, I’m different. Its years – it was years ago. I don’t think the core of what I do as a vocalist has changed. And the beauty about this experience happening for me right now is that I’ve experimented and done all those things and really my only interest now is to go back to why I started doing music in the first place – singing songs that are meaningful and, you know, trying to make people feel because if – that’s always been my gift as musicians to like really pull at people’s heart strings, you know.

And that’s what I enjoy about doing what I do, is the emotion and everything about that. So, what would I do differently? I really just want to do me right now – that’s it. And hopefully I can come out of this with, you know, music that my fans can play in their homes because I haven’t gotten there yet. It’s ridiculous. So, that’s my goal.

Q:  This question goes out to Sarah and James from Cee Lo and Jordis from Blake. I want to know who are your musical influences and what type of artists would you like to become in mainstream music, starting with Sarah.

Sarah Golden:  My musical influences definitely vary. I know that’s very cliché. I’d say probably would – everybody’s like, “I love everything.” I do love everything but I say my strong influences are along the lines of the Indigo Girls – not to be totally typed cast into the lesbian card role – but I love Joan Osborne. I love Ani DiFranco. I also like a lot ofTexasartists – Terri Hendrix, Trish Murphy. These are all, you know, singer/songwriter female acoustic musicians that are just amazing in their own right.

 And, you know, a lot of folks said, I don’t think get due credit because unfortunately Folk is just not a very popular genre. But that is – it’s not that I’ve chosen to be a Folk musician because I know it’s not popular. But it’s just what comes out and so, in terms, you know, of what I’d like to be when I grow up, I guess, I’d love to just continue being able to do what kind of comes naturally and do the kind of acoustic songwriter/Folk thing.

Q: To Sarah on Team Cee Lo: You’re a Folk singer and Folk is somewhat along the line of Country. So, I was just curious as to why you chose Cee Lo instead of Blake?

Sarah Golden:  Honestly, it was a very difficult decision and to be frank, there is a duration of the preparation for the blind audition. I kind of had in my mind, you know, dependent upon who turned around I would go for, you know, Adam or Blake. That was kind of my first inclination and I continued saying that throughout the whole thing. But I was kind of reminded when Cee Lo turned around.

When I watch the show I just – I happened upon this show last year on T.V. I didn’t even know it was on. And I saw the concept and it totally blew me away and I said, “Oh my gosh, this is totally perfect because right along with like my life.” And I saw Cee Lo and saw, you know, him working with (Vikki) and I thought, “I bet he’d be pretty crazy.” He seems different. I’m kind of different. It just seemed like a – you know, when I saw it a year ago, I thought well – you know, and never thinking I would be on the show – but when I saw it a year ago, I thought, “I would definitely pick Cee Lo. Like, why would you – that’s hands down,” you know. But it came down to it and between the two it was a very difficult decision.

I guess my only fear – I think it was two-fold. One would be that Cee Lo is totally craft and inappropriate and it went right along with my sarcastic sense of humor. So I just thought we would totally mesh – just personality wise. But then the other was, you know – and I don’t know that it’s an actual factor here but just something that kind of resonated I think in the back of my mind was that, you know, Folk is so close to Country and they are in the same kind of root but I don’t want to be Country.

And so, I don’t know that Blake would have ever pushed me to be a Country artist per se but I think it was just, maybe I can venture out into – I think it would be very comfortable and very easy to pick Blake. I think I wanted the challenge of just stepping out of — kind of my comfort zone — and saying, “Okay, what can we do with Folk because it’s already unpopular as it is. It would really be cool to kind of pop it up” if that makes sense. So, that was kind of a couple of deciding factors for going with Cee Lo.

Q: To Jordis, James and Erin Martin. I was totally entertained by the way you all challenged Adam as to basically why you didn’t attract his interest and I’d like to know why you – why that came to you to do that?

Jordis Unga: It’s pretty funny when I watch it because I’m like, “I can’t believe I just said that to him. I was rude. What was I thinking?” But, before I went out there, (Carson) actually told me that “Maybe I’m Amazed” was one of Adam’s favorite songs. So, I was like genuine curious as to what I missed for him. And in the same like – when (Carson) told me that I was like, “Okay, well,” you know, “I thought I would have Adam for sure. And then – I don’t know – I guess my head swelled a little bit because I got the rest of them. I had to ask him why he didn’t turn around but if that is one of his favorite songs, it really makes sense to me that, you know, he would hold it close to his heart and really listen carefully to what I was doing and be critical with that.

So, I can’t believe I challenged him on stage but I did. And I’m not sure why but that’s my answer.

James Massone:  I don’t know. I just like to fool around and Adam didn’t turn and I was wondering what happened? What the hell took you so long and why didn’t you hit your button. But Adam’s a good sport and I kind of wish he did turn for me. I was thinking about going on Adam’s team because I know how hard he works with his team mate but I don’t know – that was kind of the spur of the moment and that was really what I was thinking. So I kind of just said it. That’s about it. Who’s laughing?

Erin Martin: All right, okay. So, yes – so, I – first of all, I was up there and I was highly distracted because there were a lot of stuff going on and Cee Lo turned around and by the time they turned around all four chairs were turned around. So, I wasn’t sure who had turned around. But the audience cleared that up for me quickly. I knew Christina wouldn’t want to be my coach just because I’m so unique. It’s just – you look at – I guess you just listen to my voice and you’re like, “What am I going to do with that, like, it’s so weird and so out there.” It’s just really unique and honestly, I – you know, Cee Lo turned around and he was like, “I just heard something that was so bizarre and unique and wonderful.” It was like, he couldn’t wrap his head around it but he was willing to try. And for Adam I think it was just so unique that he just couldn’t – you know, like when you hear something that’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard, it’s like seeing like a new color. So, it’s like – you’re just sort of like dumb-founded for a second and you’re like, “What is that?” – you know.

But I just feel like the amount of time that you have to like put two-and-two together it’s just wasn’t enough time for him to – you know, just like wrap his head around what he was hearing. And I don’t think it was bad. I just think it was just unique. And I honestly – I thought he was going to turn around. I thought that all the coaches were going to be like open to new horizons and I thought that I had something really cool and different to offer because they were looking for something really cool and different and unique and that is like the embodiment of my voice. And, you know, he said that he liked it but he just couldn’t figure it out, so. I was like, “Adam, why didn’t you turn around” because I don’t know – I like it and people should. That’s all.
