Thank you all so much for all of the sweet comments about Jonathan! We have read them all, and we are feeling blessed to have such a wonderful online “family” that supports and encourages us each and every day!
In my last post, I shared with you the month that led up to Jonathan’s blind audition. We had been in LA for four weeks when my husband and the rest of my boys arrived. They had to stay at a different hotel, so we didn’t get to see them right when they arrived. It was two days later when we saw them on The Voice set to shoot some video. We all got dressed and ready for a lot of filming.
If you watched Jonathan’s “story” last Monday night, you will remember how he said that Eli was a “chick magnet.” HA! Well, he was also a “Carson magnet” because these two hit it off! And you could definitely tell it in the video after Pharrell hit his button for Jonathan. Carson picked Eli up and swung him around!
The sets for The Voice are pretty amazing! They have several buildings where all of this takes place, and it was so surreal to be a part of it.
We were in the background of many of the interviews that Carson did with other contestants. They would say, “Sit right here and just talk to each other.” Or “Stand over there and hang out.” They would rotate us around the set as they were filming other contestants.
The actual stage where Jonathan performed is not as big as it looks on tv, but it is still amazing!
Standing backstage and looking at the big Voice hand was just crazy!
Here are some of the contestants doing a selfie together….
I was amazed at how calm Jonathan was before he performed! I don’t know if I would be that calm when I was 16!
At one of his rehearsals, I snapped a picture of me in the audience. You can see the coaches’ chairs behind me. SO COOL!
If you missed his blind audition, here it is…
HE MADE TEAM PHARRELL!!!
Tonight, the battle rounds continue, and be sure to watch because you might see Jonathan again! :)
